Intro

Hey there, MOBAFire-ers and ya'll LoLers out there, welcome to my first build for Riven, the Exile! Quick brief intro on my part: the name's Zesty (vanZesty, Level 30 NA), and I've been playing League of Legends for almost a year now, and played DotA before that too.

Riven's definitely one of the more fun (if not, the most fun) champion to play out there, and definitely viable in my opinion too.

Fun Facts about Riven:

    Sexy looks, sexy voice.
  • Redeemed skin has to be the hottest splash art in the game.
  • Riven's background is loosely based off of Seta Sojiro (a badass character in itself) from Rurouni Kenshin.
  • C'mon, Broken Wings is the most badass skill in the game.

Without further ado, onwards to the guide!

Pros / Cons

Yes, sadly even the most beautiful women have their flaws.

Pros

+ Extremely fun to play
+ Powerful duelist and a great teamfighter
+ Blade of the Exile gives Riven a ridiculous amount of bonus AD + slight range
+ Wind Scar (Yes, I refuse to call it Wind Slash) is a great finishing move
+ Riven's combos flow beautifully with each other
+ Redeemed Riven skin is the hottest splash art in the game
+ Great chaser
+ Lane AND jungle? Check.


Cons

- Low base AD, therefore not a good candidate for Sheen (will elaborate later)
- Aside from her short dashes, she's a tad bit slow
- A bit squish for an "in your face" champion
- Her blade is broken, therefore enemy team has the advantage :( (Haha no.)
