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.

Introduction

I don't use AD melee DPS all that much but Riven is an exceptionally good fighter. She doesn't have any instant gap closing abilities or ranged poking abilities like Irelia, Katarina, or Lee Sin but Riot did a good job on making her as mobile as they promised.

This build will focus on early game damage, HP, CDR and late game tankiness and sustainability with still doing a good amount of damage. The main strategy here is to be a pain in there ***es early game by killing them and be there focus later in the game.

Of course practice makes perfect with Riven like any other champion so do us all a favor and practice, practice, and practice before you play a real game with her.

Runes + Masteries + Summoner Spells

I chose these runes based around early game durability and damage. Pretty much the same thing with the masteries. Ghost to catch up and run since she has enough mobility to get out of a losing fight. Ignite to do that last bit of damage or half there heals.

Items

Why start with and 3 's?

With boots she can get in and out of fights faster and health potions to get rid of any damage you take since Riven has no life steal or health regenerating abilities.


Good amount of early game damage, CDR, and armor penetration. And I feel 1337 every time I buy it (bad price joke).


Since Riven has no mana the only thing holding her back from using abilities is her cooldowns. Some times I get Berserkers or Mercs but mostly these for the CDR.


This is one of your main core items. The obvious benefits of getting this earlier on are the health to make you tankier and passive so they can't get away. The little damage it adds is more of a bonus and not the main reason I get this.


Your second main core item. With the health from your and just general health you should get about 50ad from this. The armor helps your tankiness. The critical chance is more of a bonus than anything.


Damage and Life Steal. Nuff said


Makes you tankier against there AP champs and adds some good health and with the passive on , more damage. The spell shield is also a good thing to have but you can also get or if you want more magic resist or if you want more armor and its passive.


Armor penetration and CDR are the main reasons I make this but everything else it adds is nice too
