Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Hi I'm EdwardPatton and I love to play as Riven; when I first played her I didn't like her, but that was because I was a noob. But, after MobaFire I've been doing better; I was once a practitioner for Riven, but decided to take it a step further and be a theorist for her. So please don't be too harsh on me if you don't like this guide. Oh yeah and if you don't like my guide check out Leroy Jenkins guide and Beeswarm17. ENJOY MY WISDOM! I also don't know how to do those fancy pants pictures =P

Sell your Heart of Gold if you're not going to build it into Raduins in at least late mid game.
I don't want you to heavily depend on me to know what to get for some of the builds; YOU have to decide that for yourself.
I treated the build sort of like an orchestra I am the conductor you are the musicians I tell you how to play, but at the same time you play how you want to play.
"The worst damage I can do to my orchestra is to give them a clear instruction, because that would prevent the ensemble from listening to each other which is needed for an orchestra." -Herbert von Karajan
Morale of the quote? Talk to others and get their opinions.
or maybe a more well known person
"If you tell people where to go, but not how to get there, you'll be amazed at the results."
-General George S. Patton
Hope you enjoyed it and if you know how to add pictures please tell me. I'll work on this on the weekend if I have time.
