Items

The Black Cleaver: I prefer to build Youmuu's Ghostblade

Only build this if the enemy team got a lot of AP and CC.

Only build this if the enemy Team got a lot of AD and AA damage.

This item is very situational. Only build this if the enemy Team have a Warwick or a Malzahar.

Build this if you are laning against an AP Champion.

It gives you Armor and HP. It explains it self.

It gives you Magic Resist, HP and a nice spell shield. Build this if the enemy team got a burst mage like Veigar or Syndra.

Combos/Tips/Animation Canceling

With Riven you have to use your passive. If you dont use your passive, you will deal lesser damage.

Here are some tips how to engage at your Opponent.
At the start of the game you can push the lane and all in your Opponent with lvl 2. (Skill W second)
Your Basic Combo to engage pre 6 is E > Q > AA > Q > AA > Q > AA > W > AA
Wih 6 your combo is E > R > AA > Q > AA > Q > AA > Q > AA > W

Animation canceling You can cancel alot of Animations with Riven. This will make your combos faster.

Here are some examples:
E > R
E > W > Q
E > R > Q
Tiamat > W
E > Tiamat > Q > R
R > Flash

You can also cancel the AA animation while you are in your Q > AA combo. You have to click somewhere while you are q'ing and then click back onto the target. This is hard to explain you can look for it on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Riven+fast+combo+tutorial
