Introduction

THis is a solotop build for Riven,very tanky but still full of offence.


Guide Top

Items

I just wanted to explain as a first thing that you might notice that In the iems build I have 7 completed items, but that actually means that in the end you would sell the Wriggles lanter for The Bloodthirster. This build is expencive and hard to complete but you need to farm minions alot.


Guide Top

Farming

When farming with Riven you should mostly use your Ki Burst to farm but Broken Wings aswell. If you are taking hits from miniions in other words if they are focuing on you use valor for a shield to negate that damage if you are a lower level. As I said in the Items chapter that farming for Riven is very important because of her expencive build.

Team Work

In teamfights you can really be affective by land your stun on as much enemies as possible and using your knock-up from the 3rd slice of your Broken Wings ability.

Unique Skills

This build I use for alot of my champion cause I mostly play as a solotop player. What this build gives me is ALOT of durability and quite nice damage along with it. What I was aiming for with The Bloodthirster and the Wriggles lantern is if the enemy is able to lower me down that I can regain that HP through lifesteal.

Skill Sequence

I max my Ki Burst first because once again Rivens farming is really important so what you need to do is use your Ki Burst to farm alot because it can do really nice damage when maxed first. I max valor second because Riven is not that easy to poke on,you come in for a poke, Dash-Stun-Spin and your dead,so I got a little off topic there but Valor is really effective because of the shield is very usefull in many situations. Finally were at the Broken wings,in my opinion broken wings should be maxed last because it should be used mostly to trigger your passive for example in 1 vs 1 fightsbut it can be also use for farming.

Summary

Well I tried to make this build resistant to almost anything but with good damage as we all like it. If you like the guide please try the build out and tell me what you think in the comments :)
