Intro

Welcome one and all. I am just a normal League of Legends player, nothing special about me. The only thing I have to my name is the fact that I main Riven. I have researched, experimented, and adjusted my playstyle so that I can face off against any top laner. In this guide I will explain my approach to Riven, how she should be played in game, and how you can best play her. Take a moment and read the guide to learn how to be the best you can at Riven.

Tips & Tricks

Riven has a few tips and tricks which every person can learn. Some take practice, others help save time or help clear camps.

Difficulty(0-5)
0=easy
5=hard

1)Cancel Riven's Ultimate Cast Time (1/5)
It is possible to cancel her ultimate cast time. While casting Valor activate Blade of the Exile and it should cancel out the short cast time on her ult. Great for when you engage to hide your all in. If you cast your ult without doing this method, they will try to retreat so its a very handy trick to have up your sleeve.

2)Jungle Riven Fast Clear (3/5)
When jungling as Riven, you should try to do this every chance you get. First when you are clearing your first camp right when they spawn, start Broken Wings at exactly 1:29s. Cast it at the last possible moment you can. What this does is stack your passive so that when the first mobs start to spawn you should have a second to hit them with full passive. The best thing is that Broken Wings will refresh at about 2 seconds into that camp. Another thing to try is casting Broken Wings to move between camps using this method.

3)Riven Wall Jump (5/5)
This is useful for jungle Riven and escapes. There is a wall on the bot lane River right before you go to dragon. On the right section of the river wall, just after the line of trees and between the spaced trees you can actually jump this wall. It takes practice and time but it is useful. I have used it to conserve flash to avoid the ward at dragon for ganking bot lane. I have gotten to the point I can jump it three times in one cast.

Abilities

[Riven]'s abilities charge her blade for 5 seconds, causing her to do 20/25/30/35/40/45/50% of her total attack damage as bonus physical damage on her next basic attack. Riven can store up to 3 charges, and can only expend one at a time.
