Introduction

Hello, my name is YaboyDev on the North America server. I am a Riven main and I like to play her jungle and in the top lane. I thought of a build recently and I kept putting the pieces together to form this, the Super Tanky High Damage Riven guide. My philosophy for this build is to deal tons of damage with sheen procs and still be able to tank damage.


Guide Top

Runes

The runes are very simple,

10% CDR (1 CDR Quint, 9 CDR Glyphs)
13 Physical Damage (2 AD Quints, 9 AD Marks)
9 Armor (9 Armor Seals)

With these runes your early jungling is much much easier, CDR helps so you can use your q more often (more q's more passive damage), physical damage just helps for clearing and damage overall, and armor so you don't take as much damage.

Items

This item build is so that you can do massive damage with sheen procs (trinity force + sterak's gage) and be tanky. I find the main problem with Riven is how easy it is to just lock her down and she's gone. You can be in a fight 5 times longer than full AD Riven top. Although, the damage just isn't the same it's actually easy to burst a priority target down.

Summary

This build is actually one of my favourites, I got the idea just randomly sitting in bed, the build allows you to be what every Riven wants, to be in the fight and not get focused right away. I've said before you aren't as bursty but your tank stats make up for a little less damage and a little less burst.

Pros / Cons

Pros/b]
- Tanky
- Does decent damage
- Has great ganks (level 3)
- Has a great teamfight
- Clearing jungle is easy after you get Ranger's Trailblazer
- Can carry (somewhat)

Cons
- If you fall behind kind of useless
- Before you get Ranger's Trailblazer you risk of dying whilst getting invaded is highly increased
- Need to know the fast q combo
- High skillcap (less than top lane because you just farm jg creeps)


Guide Top

Jungling

I would recommended starting whatever side your bot lane is on, or double jg with your top laner. Make sure you do the fast q combo to clear the camp faster.

Blue Side
Krugs (smite)
Raptors (dontsmite)
Red (smite)
Recall
Buy ranger's trailblazer and then gank.

Red Side
Gromp (smite)
Wolves/Blue (dontsmite)
Blue/Wolves (smite)
Recall
Buy ranger's trailblazer and then gank.

Double Jungle
Gromp/Krugs or Raptors/Wolves (smite) (depends if bot lane takes krugs/gromp)
Red/Blue (dontsmite)

If your bot lane starts krugs/gromp smite it to help them out, you wont need the smite for red buff if you have your top laner tanking it.

In both of these sides taking scuttle can be useful if you want ward gold.


Guide Top

Teamfighting

Riven is a great teamfighter, she has great aoe damage and cc to help her team finish the fight victoriously. If you are going to engage make you sure you w + flash on the ADC. If manage to kill the ADC and deal a lot of damage to the enemy team the teamfight is basically won.

Notes
- You don't have to target the ADC always, target the main damage dealer on their team.
(example Don't target 0/7/4 Tristana, target the 17/0/9 LeBlanc.

Combos, Animation Cancelling and Wallhops

This is an extensive Riven Lesson by BoxBox, I did not create any part of this video, this is simply something he did on his stream that was uploaded to youtube. This will help you if you're a beginner Riven.

Conclusion

So, in conclusion Riven is a very strong top laner and a very strong jungler. Her ganks are amazing and she is very fun overall.
