Theory behind my guide. :P

This is my first guide so go easy on me, and also the way i build riven was full ad burst. at the end i buy guardian angel so that i can resist peoples dmg. Also for runes i go mostly armor penetration so that i deal the most dmg. and also attack speed because she lacks in attack speed, but u can also go 9 magic resist in glyph and 9 armor in seal. you can buy mercury's treads if you feel like they have to much ap. or stunners. and also you can buy phantom dance for frozen mallet but than you will lack in hp. depends on how you play. So, go with my build and make me proud! :) and pls tell me what else i could add to the guide so that i can perhaps make it better. thank you!

Items

Well as for items, i have dorandorans first to have some dmg out put with the energized passive. then i go or depending on the team i am against, if too much ap or stunners than go mercury's if not go berserkers for more attack speed. Next i buy to get more dmg. and have armor penetration. Afterwards i buy page to reduce my enemies speed and so that i have more hp., afterwards i buy to have life steal and more dmg output so that i my "W" can do more dmg when it stuns. Then i finish for more hp and finish for attack speed when active OR you can switch to for attackspeed but you wont have as much armor penetration or also you can switch it to for armor penetration in case they have some the last whisper will came in handy. than i buy for more damage output and last i buy to have more defense to support late game.

Skill Sequence

WEll my skill sequence is first level everything once and than rise W first because "w" helps a lot when dealing dmg and stunning and you only need to rise Q only once because the energize gives you plenty of extra damage and you wont need it until late game. Than i rise "e" to have more block, so that i dont receive as much damage.

When attacking Use this combo : > > hit > > hit > > hit > > hit.
When above lvl 6. : > > > Hit > > hit > > hit > > > hit.
use your are in the middle so that you damage half of their hp.

Pros / Cons

Pros :
- you can almost always run away from enemies using Valor + Broken Wings and if they close in on you use your Ki burst to stun and increase the distance .

-Riven is good at Harassing you can really get deal alot of damage and annoy the champion if you have movement speed and damage output.

- Riven is good in team fights, she can go in and stun and deal tons of damage with her "w" and "r"

- High damage.

-Amazing Mobility

-she is a Fighter but her stats say shes a Ranged carry in disguise with her R and Q's..


Cons:
- early game she is squishy.

-Her base damage should be a little better, her base hp increased, armor increased,better Regen.

- She is aimed at because of her output damage and stuns.

-Hard to aim Wind Slash in battle.

- Requires a lot of pressing "Q" , "W", "E" to be successful with riven. ( fingers might hurt).

- She has low attack speed.

Masteries

When going masteries i go22/6/0 I go 6 on the defense so that i have some defense during the game. 3 in armor and 3 in magic resistance. and 22 in offensive because riven is mostly AD and needs more AD and attack speed and armor penetration.

Runes


This rune will help you get more attack speed at the start since i dont really focus attack speed for riven this will allow her to have some.


This will allow you too have more attack speed too.

Greater Mark of Desolation
this will allow you to penetrate the enemy armor and deal more damage, this is needed to hit more to the enemy champion

Greater Quintessence of Desolation
this will allow you to penetrate the enemy armor and deal more damage, this is needed to hit more to the enemy champion

Team Work

RIVEN MUST GO IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FIGHT WITH HER "E" SO THAT SHE STUNS EVERYONE WITH HER "W", THAN SHE MUST USE HER WINDS SLASH TO DEAL A LOT OF DAMAGE TO ENEMY CHAMPIONS IT IS BETTER IF THEY ARE TOGETHER. and then keep attacking with "Q" to deal more AoE'S!


Guide Top

Summary

Riven is a good champion to have in your team. she is a little hard to use but once you know how to play with her you become pro? haha. also You must build her AD with some armor, so that you burst and deal a lot of damage while being able to take some damage.
