Summary

First off a warning, this is the first build I've published and that is only because I see a lack of a really solid build to start me off as Riven. Please share any suggestions you vets may have. I play Riven as a lane clearer/ambusher. Her defenses are never that great, so make sure you kill and run. Teleport is there to get me where I need to be to rack up a solid income and leeched life off of minions.

I'll camp bushes, activate my ultimate, slide out with valor using exhaust to weaken my victim's counterattack if I'm worried about them stunning me, attempting to beat their stun. Then I'll do Broken Wings and end with a Ki Burst to clear the minions off me. If they are low I can finish them with activating my ultimate again to shoot the group.

I chose those Ionian boots for the early cooldown reduction to keep harassing early on.

The lantern is perfect for spying or watching your back for ambushes.

Infinity Edge is a must have early item to inflict a solid harass series that sends most champions packing.

I think after I get bloodthirstier I'd dump the lantern for the BV to keep from getting interrupted during her burst combo.

Runes I did focus on cooldown reduction and attack damage. Cooldowns and her weak defense hold her back, but her hit and run ability is solid. Just be really quick about everything you do and always watch your back for a setup!
