NEW VIDEO MONDAY 6/25/2018

This is the toughest part to master in my opinion, snowballing your lane then the rest of the game for your team. Riven is so intuitive to the player that she can do things in her own way! That's why I encourage people who haven't found their way in league and have higher reaction times, you gain more options. In the hands of an experienced player (which mainly takes dedication). If you coordinate ganks and assassinations with your team, you can take the enemy down with ease. Hitting power spikes with Riven occurs often after 6, so getting enough cs to afford your items on your first back is the goal. A lot of ganks will happen, map awareness is key, vision helps you set up plays.

Every Single Riven Matchup (WIP): Our Journey

This series will take us through a journey of playing even more Riven while learning from our mistakes! This will eventually contain all of her matchups~ Subscribe to Black Halo to stay up to date :D I will be breaking down my Riven gameplay and analyzing what I do in my Ranked games. This is how I play Riven.



RIVEN

vs... everyone. She can probably beat everyone in League of Legends Top Lane.. I'll admit it she's OP :D

LIVESTREAMED!

Riven vs. Teemo S8 FULL RANKED GAMES

(BEEMO!!):
(I got thumbnail advice from ****huap LUL)

Renekton with Ignite:


Riven vs. Nasus Late Game:

Singed the Troll



I run a lot over walls and bait the enemies into chasing me because of my IGN ChaseMorePlz! I main Udyr xD

The path to exile may take years but only those who go down it find their true champion .

The Practice Tool is great for Combo practice!

I already know how to combo and I feel pretty comfortable while doing it. Chaining CC and abilities is something I make sure to do but that's all down to timing. Mechanically speaking, learning fast combos is something you need to be able to do in order to burst enemies. I'm going to list all of the essential Riven combos here! Later if this guide receives good feedback I will make a combo guide.


The first thing you need to know is the fast combo. This is how it generally starts:

Auto attack, Q, auto attack, Q, auto attack , 3rd Q, auto attack.

Understanding how your passive functions is also key to getting a lot of your damage off, those autos sure do hurt.

Every Good Riven player does this by spacing out their Q's (which includes keeping in mind of your third W's knockup,)and their autos. It is very important to include your Q's in between your auto attacks! If not, you miss out on a ton of damage.
Learning this and doing it consistently is essential to playing Riven.

Tiamat>W is a very good, underrated burst ability

These are some combos I use that you can chain together and do good damage in both duels and teamfights. Have fun with making your own as well, there are many different Riven animation canceling methods!~

The fast combo:
autoQ> autoQ, autoQflip auto >

How to cancel your ulti animation:
your E Valor can cancel pretty much all of your other ability's animations. when you hit 6, to cancel that long ultimate animation and move even faster to your opponent, simply E>R every time. be sure to gap close, but not with your Q unless you need to since that's your main damage source. Every scenario is situational, that is why I will be demonstrating more lane matchups in the future. however you want to go in like this a lot, damage+bonus range op.

E-tiamat>Q
Fast burst, also good for her flip (third Q)

Q, Q => E>R>3rdq:
Great for catching your opponents off guard, and if used properly can gain a large amount of distance in a very short amount of time.

Same Thing with Flash ^
Q, Q => E>R>FLASH>3rdq:
This is a great way to Initiate fights from long distance! Takes time to perfect and master consistently, which is the part that slows me down when completing it.

Personal favorite: (hard to master)
I switch it up a bit, but one of my unexpected burst combos for Riven is as follows:
E tia w aa q>into fast combo with autos

That's a bit easier to do when you first begin to learn it, but after a while I decided to sub into more autos because theoretically its more sustained damage (soon, a single attackspeed item for her will be dominant):

E tia aa w aa q>into fast combo with autos



I will be Updating this section with even more advanced combos and tactics. Stay Tuned.

Summary: I love Playing Riven

Yeah this guide was short and it was meant to be, I feel that videos explain how to play Riven a lot better than writing. In short, I will always expose ways to get ahead in League of Legends. Check Out My YouTube Channel: Black Halo.


Getting through lane and setting up your snowball are examples I will be showing you more of in every single video. I am playing her Live practically all the time here and my good in game decision making comes from practicing her correctly! Combo knowledge keeps me over the top :D

I hope I was able to HELP you all out and inspire you to pick up this amazing champion. She is incredibly fun to play when you get comfortable with her.

Support on my Youtube channel is tremendously appreciated! I hope to see you there, I love making content.
