Introduction

Hi! I am Tazby, I am a Plat V Player and I have been playing a lot of riven lately! I have only been playing her for about 2 weeks but I think I have already mastered her. This guide will show you how to master her as well and carry yourself to plat!

Runes

I always use the same runepage on riven, which is
8x Mark of Attack Damage
1x Mark of Critical Strike
9x Seal of Armor
9x Glyph of Cooldown Reduction
3x Quint of Health

I believe this is the best riven rune page because it makes you very dominant lane bully, with lots of damage and health to make yourself tanky. I use one mark of critical strike because if you land the crit then you will definitely win the lane!!!

Masteries

21/9/0 is the best Masteries to use because it allows you to do tons of upfront damage on the enemy top laner

Items

I have been experimenting a lot with riven and I believe these are the best items, however I think it is possible to use the Icebourn Gauntlet instead of the Zekes Lategame if you are one of the only sources of AD damage on your team, because you do not need to help your team with the Zekes Lifesteal aura.

I start Elixir of Fortitude and 3 potions because it allows you to have tons of early game damage and almost always guarentees first blood.

I think go for a vamp scepter so you can get some sustain in lane, and then go for Spirit of the Elder Lizard, this item allows for tons of true damage and lets you slowly wittle down your lane opponent.

After spirit of the elder lizard I upgrade my vamp scepter into a bilgewater and then a blade of the ruined king, this item is truly OP! The percentage dmg on BotRK as well as the true dmg on lizard elder lets you win every fight!!!

After you get these items, you want to start building tanky because you have all the dmg you need, so build a Frozen Mallet, a Zekes Herald, and a Guardian Angel, and you can easily 1v3 or 1v4 anyone on their team!!

Summary

Overall Riven is one of the most OP champs in the League especially with this build! you definitely need the cooldown reduction so you can spam your spells as much as possible and with my build you get full 40% cdr!

Extra Note: If you are on blue side you should ask your jungler sometimes to see if you can get the blue for top lane! the extra cdr early lets you dominate!!!
