Introduction

This is just an ALT-TAB guide for those people who need cannot be bothered reading all the little details (Like me, often just looking for skill/item build)

This is my first guide on MOBAFIRE and i chose it to be on Riven.
I've played her ever since she came out and she is just an incredibly fun character to play.
She might be lacking in the damage department however she is still a fun character to play and hearing people say RIVEN IS BROKEN, OP. is just so much fun.

Runes

These runes are pretty much explain themselves.

The ArmourPen of course is a must on every AD hero

The Armour/Magic Resist runes are for early survivability as Riven is a fairly squishy character early game.

The Health Runes in OFFTANK build is for extra health early game.

Masteries

For both builds I go 21/6/3

21 offensive gives us the Damage which we lack.
The 6 gives us a bit of survival and the 3 in utility will get us back into the action much quicker

Items

PUREDAMAGE BUILD-

Early Game Brutalizer and CDR boots give us 25% CD reduction and Armour pen,
Mid game we get ourselves a Phage for a little bit of health and damage.
The Bloodthirster and Last Whisper are our preferred damage items as they provide us with the most useful stats. Be sure to keep brutalizer all the way till the end and if the game drags on long enough sell for another blood thirster.

OFFTANK BUILD -
The wriggles and phage are gotten for beefiness as well as a bit of damage.
The merctreads are the best choice for defensive boots as it gives us Tenacity and MR.
Atmogs is a great item on Riven as she can clear out creep waves with Q+W midgame with no problems.
Our phage turns into a Frozen mallet and Guardian angel is gotten for both MR and ARMOUR.

Skill Sequence

PURE DAMAGE-
In this we max out Broken Wings first than Ki blast and Valor last.
This is because we'll be using our Q as a harrasing tool as well as a farming and gap closing.

OFFTANK BUILD -
We max valor first in this build due to the shield and dash it gives us.
This is great for initiating fights in lane and Ki Blast maxed second as it goes so well with Valor.

Summary

Sorry for the rushed guide but i just wanted to get my playstyles of Riven out there as i find that she is an incredibly fun character and the way she fits both roles of DAMAGE and OFFTANK is just amazing,
