Ex-Riven One Trick. KR challenger riven GTT approved Guide

By ScottTheTeemo
Hi Guys, I'm ScottTheTeemo.

Come say hi:

I used to main riven back in season 6,7. had 2000 games on her.
I was masters with her

Since she's tier 1 in the meta again, I figured I'd help make a guide on her. (with help from korean challenger riven main GTT)

- - - -

Made a very easy guide that everyone can follow and climb with. I'll add more and more details as time flows + update the guide for you guys. I'll be honest, climbing to diamond was easier with this build than any. Good luck guys =] !!!!
Combos Back to Top
Riven combos are key to playing her well.

Q1 and Q2 shortens everything: Auto, Q3, Stun, Dash, R1, R2

Stun shortens: Auto, Dash, R1, R2

Dash shortens: R1, R2

R1 R2 has long animation.

Flash repositions everything.

Movement shortens: Q1, Q2 (fast combo)

Keys to success:

only Stun and Dash can shorten R1, R2

R2 has animation and stops you from moving - compensate/reposition/burst with Flash

only Q1/Q2 can shorten Q3 and Stun, smooth transition from opening burst into rest of combo.

Max Combo:
~Dash R1,AA, R2 Fash Q3, Auto Stun Q1 (move), Auto Q2 (move), Auto Q3, Auto Dash~

setup and extend Q1 Q2, so Q3 would reset right after you use it (40%+ cdr)

Max Opening Nuke (~2 second): Dash R1, Auto, R2 Flash Q3 ,Auto Stun Q1 Dash

Follow-on fast combo (~2 seconds): After the Auto Stun above, you may continue into a fast combo: Q1 (move), Auto Q2 (move), Auto Q3 Auto Dash

Any combo that is shorter has fewer Qs, Autos, and other skills, and therefore easier/ faster to execute depending on situation/positioning.

Pro & Cons Back to Top

Strong solo Q pick
1v9 potential when mastered
Low pick rate
Low ban rate
High damage dealer
Flexible can both go ad bruiser and even tank if needed
Has good cc
Good at split pushing
1v2 potential if ahead
Strong through out the entire game


High skill cap
easily counter picked
Mentality & Mute Back to Top
This is the most important part of league. People will flame you for losing in cs too much. And hypothetically, if you do get solo killed or ganked, just chill.

If someone flames you (jgler) for not roaming for him and etc, just say sorry and mute.

Tell your teams you scale super hard and can 1v5 late game. (Its true)

If you lose 3 games in a row, try to watch your replay (you can even watch replays during que time), take a break see where you can do better.
If you are certain, it was unlucky teammates or unlucky engage , unlucky comp for late game scale, just play the way you play. Do your best and you will climb.
Roam Back to Top
Riven has a huge roam capabilities. When wave is pushed in, deep ward enemy jungle or counter jg enemy jungle. Sometimes, you can roam for mid and gank as well.

Save Tp for ganks bot lane if they have a deep ward. Every small lead you get for your team can mean a victory. (It also tilts the opponent top laner if you get kills or assists off tp ganks)
To be Continued... Back to Top
Let me know if you guys have any more questions! I'll edit more details weekly as I play her more often. Thanks so much! -- ──────────────────────────────────────── ──────────────────────────────────────── ───────────████──███──────────────────── ──────────█████─████──────────────────── ────────███───███───████──███─────────── ────────███───███───██████████────────── ────────███─────███───████──██────────── ─────────████───████───███──██────────── ──────────███─────██────██──██────────── ──────██████████────██──██──██────────── ─────████████████───██──██──██────────── ────███────────███──██──██──██────────── ────███─████───███──██──██──██────────── ───████─█████───██──██──██──██────────── ───██████───██──────██──────██────────── ─████████───██──────██─────███────────── ─██────██───██─────────────███────────── ─██─────███─██─────────────███────────── ─████───██████─────────────███────────── ───██───█████──────────────███────────── ────███──███───────────────███────────── ────███────────────────────███────────── ────███───────────────────███─────────── ─────████────────────────███──────────── ──────███────────────────███──────────── ────────███─────────────███───────────── ────────████────────────██────────────── ──────────███───────────██────────────── ──────────████████████████────────────── ──────────████████████████────────────── ──────────────────────────────────────── ────────────────────────────────────────
