Passive-Runic Blade: Riven's abilities charge her blade, causing her to do {5/7/9/11/13/15} (+0.5 per bonus attack damage) bonus damage on her next autoattack. Riven can store up to 3 charges, but only expends one at a time.
This Pasive is perfect for riven because she spam abilities and you can Q-AA-Q-AA-Q-AA etc.
Q-Broken Wings:Riven steps forward and lashes out in a series of powerful sword slashes. This ability can be activated up to 3 times in a short period. 1st Use/2nd Use: Deals physical damage to a small area in front of her. 3rd Use: Jumps into the air and slams downward, causing a larger impact nova that deals physical damage and knocks nearby enemies back.This abiliti is really weird beause when you use it you can use it again and again. it is really nice to scape and chase and do really nice damage
W-Ki Burst: Riven damages and stuns nearby enemies.This Abiliti will be your Burst damage abiliti (Ki ''Burst'' LOL)it stuns for 0.5 secs you will say it is a little time but it really works
E-Valor: Riven dashes forward and gains a shield for 2.5 seconds.This abiliti make you scape really easy and put a shield (AD Scale) you can scape from a Tryndamere or you can block a
R-Blade of The Exile: Riven's sword reforms, giving her a bonus 20% Attack Damage, extended range on her damaging abilities and basic attacks for 15 seconds. While Blade of the Exile is active, Riven can reactivate the ability to activate Wind Slash, emitting a large cone shockwave that deals physical damage to all units hit based on their missing give you more damage whit Auto Attacks and increase range of your abilities and if a enemy is running far away whit low HP you can grab the kill if you use it again (it throw a shockwave that do damage based on AD and the hp of the enemy

If you are whit blade of the exile, whit your passive and do a AA(Auto Attack) you will hit 900+
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Situational items:

if you are playin vs heavy AP use this

I only use this item vs tryndamere.

Combo: how to kill trynds whit riven
you will never use blade of the exile vs a trynd you will burst him whitout it
he will make inmortal and obiously you will die but you will revive if he dont run you will use valor to scape and if he chase you keep running until valor is on CD Again if he is close you will use Ki burst and run then you will use blade of the exile + youmuu's ghostblade valor back and use the harrasing combo that is run whit and use and you will kill a trynd, if he isnt close you will use blade of exile + youmuus ghostblade to trynd and you will kill a trynd. :/ yeah trynd are hard to kill.
