Intro to this Guide
Hey Guys :)
So this is a guide for Riven eh?
Why should u try this guide and not one of the others?
i think is cause of the huge dmg what this riven deals.
first of all: in this riven build the skills arent soo neccessary for killing people cause we doing huge dmg with autohits. sure some champs like rammus or jax can avoid autoattacks but for that we have a huge cd minimize with our eq.
all 4 seconds the shield all ~5 seconds q and w and all ~30 seconds we can go in ultimate.
Yap this is the most annyoing time with riven i think.
soo many champs do a lot of dmg at the start and we should know that!
but i take dorans blade cause we dont need a pot if we get a nice laning partner :)
on this build i like tryndamere or teemo, morgana or fiddlesticks, malphite or sion as laning partner. if we had a solo with warwick in jungle or any other jungler make clear that he had to gank the enemys if u put in some dmg.
rivens gameplay is easy so u should do a huge dmg output from the start like this : with partner u can go in the grass waiting for some action doing exhaust autoattack if they dont flash doing q doing autoattack going out of grass if they follow going into grass give more dmg with aa.
on solo lane dont use the grass to often cause they know u are alone there at the moment.
after reaching lvl 6 itm cause u r doing a heavy load of dmg and suprise them ^^
my fav suprise attack out of grass is like this : ultimate form -> dash/shield -> w -> autoattack -> q -> autoattack -> dash/shield -> ultimate shot
after laning phase
till now u had to buy the ghostblade and stinger maybe working on shoes too.
ur cd´s are at a quite nice state now and u can spam ur skills very often and doing good dmg.
now u had to get some more kills for the bloodthirster.
ur attackspeed is moderate and u r doing good in spamming ur skills on the enemy team.
if u get bloodthirster ur dmg will increase fast cause u can spam the minions too to fill ur item. now ur shield have all 4 seconds a nice amount of dmgprotection and u can go in teamfights and spam ur skills.
my queue is liek this. ultimate->dash->autoattack->w->autoattack->q->ultimate shot->dash-> autoattack
u can do a huge dmg in short time.
after purchasing blade of infinity ur shield will hold a huge amount of dmg and ur w skill will turn one and the other teamfight. really i like it to see the enemys running if they see me in ultimate =)
Items to get fixed with ****ty situations :/
if u think this riven is to squishy then go buy a warmogs expect of stinger. after warmogs u either can buy stinger or phantom dancer.
if ur enemy team is filled with many casters so go buy quicksilver sash or guardian angel.
but normally u should put them out without having problems if u play good with ur team.
