Introduction

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

Greater Seal of Armor: Armor... armor... ARMOR!

Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage: Get it if you're getting Mark of Desolation

Masteries

Well the standard is 21/9/0 for AD, but if you want to know why I get these read on.

Brute Force : DAMAGE DAMAGE DAMAGE EARLY GAME EARLY GAME EARLY GAME WIN WIN WIN

Summoner's Wrath : I love Exhaust

Alacrity : Read the next one

Weapon Expertise : +10% who doesn't want that much pent?

Vampirism : Life steal is actually pretty good on her, because of her passive

Sunder : Makes your life so much easier against those Shyvana people <.<

Executioner : Just read it it's a no brainer =P

Resistance and Hardiness : She needs to be AD Tanky so getting these will help you immensely!

Durability and Veteran Scars : Again AD TANKY

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
