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.
Hello everyone my name is Zeelah and this is my first guide ever, I'll hope u will like this and if I make a few SPELLING MISSTAKES be paccinet English isn't my first language since I'm from Sweden were we speek Swedish. Riven were a champion I picked up for 475 RP a quite a while ago but I never gave her a real chance then I started to play her again and she is now my main champion :)I play on Nordic East. Hope you like my guide, pls leave a comment and I'll give my opinin. Please just don't hate because you think something is wrong, tell me instead and we can talk about it. If you would like me to do the guide even further in depth tell me! :)
I'll take a mix between AD Marks and Armor Pen Marks becuase all Rivens abillitys scale of ad so a boost ad always help, but a bit armorpen is awesome since many solo tops get a bit armor atleast when facing Riven.
I'll take Armor Seals because they are cheep and gives loads of armor.
I'll take CD at lvl 18 Glyfhs because they cost 410 when normal CD costs 810, that's to much, you can always trade them aginst MR per lvl but i like the boost of cd late game.
I'll take lifesteal Quinteces because Riven lacks in sustain and this helps alot.
I'll go 26-4-0 because I want everything who gives me more attack damge, lifesteal and Armor Penetration and a bit Magic Ress and Armor
I'll start with a cloth armor and 5 healthpotion becuase Riven lacks a bit in sustain but the damage is so high that i always want to play aggresive to get first blood almost everytime and thanks to 5 healpotions sustain wont be a problem plus the 9% lifesteal for runes and masteries. For the most time I manage to get both the Brutalizer and tier 1 boots, but If not I'll try to get atleast Brutalzier though to Rivens high mobility unless u get ganked very often or having a hard time. Then I get my Ninja Tabi because they are very cheap and really good. Now i get Wampscepter to gain more sustain. Then I get my Warmogs because i want to be able to stack it as fast as possible and then the laning face is awesome. After my Warmogs I'll get a black clever Enemys who's stacking armor and burst down the Squishys. And now a atmas because more armor and about 50 AD is so awesome and a bit Crit dosn't hurt. Now I finally upgrade my Vampscepter to a blood thrister for more lifesteal and loads of attack damage. Now it's time for Guardian Angel a fantastic item that will make u play so aggresive as you want. Now I'll sell my Brutulazier and get a Last wisper for more AD and a huge amount of Armorpen, poor AD carry and Armor stackig tanks. When you have all you're items get Elexir and mabye trade you're boots for Murcury Treads.
I'll max Q then W and Last E and R at 6-11-16 because this will give me the most damage and with a Warmogs I don't need to max E since it's get stronger with AD
I usually get Flash and Ignite but sometimes against High Damaging Attack Damager I get Exhaust becuase it will help you more and also you're jungler at ganks.
Riven is an awesome champion that everyone should try out. She is in my opinion the safest pick solo top becuase she is very hard to gank, She deals tons of damage while beeing tanky.
I <3 Her
I hope you like her and this guide. Feel free to leave a comment
