Why Riven? Back to Top
Riven is a jack of all trades type of champ. She is great at everything. She also keeps the enemies on their toes with all of the combos and unexpected damage and CC that comes along with her. Also she kinda hot kek.

Itemization Back to Top
A bit more info on the Itemization on riven. A lot of people always go Gore drinker mythic but sometimes thats not the best way to go.

Stride breaker is a viable item on riven. If their team has a **** ton of range characters that can kite you harder than a 7 year old at a park then you need to take this. The extra dash to your arsenal and the slow is more than enough to stop them in their tracks.

If the enemy team has 5 or 4 ADCs for what ever reason this item is good. If the enemy team has a lot of vital skill shots that could make you lose the team fight if hit by it, this item can help you dodge it. Thought lethality isn't the best stat for riven, its hell of a lot fun to have to get them. Get it in the same sense as stride breaker if they have no tanks/bruisers.

This is Riven's go to grievous wounds items. Since Omni-vamp is a thing you might want to go this in 90% of your games

With the nerfs in previous patches, You won't be going this item as much as you used to. Its still a viable option. If you're looking to get out of lane to roam more I'd suggest this item in order to hard shove the wave easily.

Riven's go to legendary in most cases. The unique passive is just so good to have against tanks and even squishies. Since the ER nerf you will be building this more often.

Like stated in the descp above. The Nerfs to this thing make it so you won't build it as often as you do, but its still an option when you're hard snow balling since its cheap.

Its pretty easy to know when to build this. If you team can't survive without you in a fight or you're just so fed and you don't want to lose the bounty go GA for the revive.

If you explode even with other bruiser items go this for the massive life line shield with the unique passive.

Incredibly situation item. If the enemy team is full of tanks with hard engage and you want to kite them you want to go this. The slow and armor pent is super helpful on you so you can shred them and slow them for easier kiting

Another incredibly situational item. Go this if your team has no proper frontline like everyone os squishy and if the enemy team is filled to the brim with ap
Level one cheese Back to Top
The Level One cheese is a strategy to get the enemy laner dead or flashless. The first thing is to start Doran's blade and get Q level 1. You want to hide in the lane brush towards their side and wait for them to walk up and CS. If they use their ability and its on CD then go and chase them with Qs and auto them.
Wall Jumps Back to Top
These are the spots where Riven can jump through with third Q

End Back to Top
