RIVEN GUIDE S11 | Riven is the PERFECT S+ TIER champ

By Mr fou
Riven looks at the champion you are hovering over at the start of the cast. If you want to move to the other side of your opponent, make sure your cursor is also on the other side of the opponent.
Riven lacks a source of iron healing or defense, so she must compensate with blast combos. Enter combat with Broken Wings and Ki Blast, leaving Valor Valor to escape and absorb counterattacks.Riven is highly mobile, but cannot advance very far with any skill. Rooting it or silencing it during combining will greatly reduce its effectiveness.
All of Riven's damage is physical, so prioritize Armor if an opposing Riven goes out of control.
Riven takes on multiple melee attackers wonderfully at the same time, as the damage level will be almost at the same level. If you're paired for Riven, don't do it as a double melee attack until you've used up your entire combination.Auto-attacking between uses of Broken Wings Broken Wings is a great way to take advantage of Runic Sword Runic Sword, since you consume a stack to do a little extra damage.
Because Broken Wings Broken Wings produces exactly three stacks, which is the maximum that Runic Sword Runic Sword can have, one option would be to use the first two casts of Broken Wings Broken Wings before entering a team fight so that upon entering, Do a totaled aerial takedown and your next three basic attacks are much more powerful.
Some skill combos allow less damage to be done in a short amount of time. For example, any cast of Broken Wings Broken Wings can be used as long as the Wind Slash animation Wind Slash is still active. The quickest way to deal damage is to land on a soft target (like the enemy marksman) and do the following combo, with no basic attacks in between: E> R> Hydra> W> Q> R> Q> Q. Each skill in this combo will cancel the animation of the previous one, except for the second cast of Sword of Exile Sword of Exile and the third of Broken Wings Broken Wings.
Using Broken Wings Broken Wings alongside Valor Valor will give you increased mobility and a bit of defense. This is a very efficient way to move around the map, as both abilities cost nothing. However, Broken Wings Broken Wings allows you to click on the mini-map and uses it as a direction point to keep moving forward, while Valor Valor cancels all move actions.Be careful to use your skills before a fight, because afterwards they will be on cooldown.
Broken Wings Broken Wings can be used to chase since you can do an aerial takedown.
Remember that Broken Wings Broken Wings and Valor Valor gives you a great mobility increase to flee, but only the third cast of Broken Wings Broken Wings can be used to jump walls or structures. However, remember that you can go through all terrains generated by abilities like Anivia Anivia's Crystallize Crystallize, Jarvan IV's Cataclysm Cataclysm, Jarvan IV, or Trundle Trundle's Ice Pillar.
Wind Slash Wind Slash delivers its highest possible damage when the enemy is below 25% health, so using Wind Slash Wind Slash to finish off enemies that are escaping with low health is the best option.
Riven Riven is a very strong solo top lane champion due to her ability to avoid ambushes with her mobility, her abilities cost no mana, and she has a shield that casts instantly. Play aggressive and use Valor Valor to aid you in 1v1 clashes on the lane.
