Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Riven is a high reward champion, that requires a lot of positioning in order to be useful.
Pros / Cons
- Good farmer ( Yes, you can farm minions really fast with your Q-Q-Q-W combo. It's easy to stack your bloodthrister this way.
-Awesome Scaling. Riven has an awesome AD scaling, you can build her pure dps and still be hard to kill in teamfights if you build lifesteal.
-Squishy early game.
-Easy to shutdown if used skills incorrectly.
-Requires a lot of positioning
Recommended summoner spells:
FLASH: It's useful if u need to escape a gank or to position urself better
EXHAUST: It's always useful in solotop, as you'll face AD tanky dps like Renekton,Irelia,Jarvan, and others.
IGNITE: If they have a Vladimir,Mundo,Sion(AD), and your team is lacking ignites, you can swap exhaust for ignite.
TELEPORT: If you feel unsure about doing solotop, you can use this spell instead of exhaust.
GHOST: if you feel you like ghost more than flash, feel free to take it.
Since you're going to do solotop, you need to be a bit tanky and be able to deal dmg at the same time. Thats why i choose Armor Pen Reds, Armor Yellows and MagicResist Blues. I picked AD/l quints because Riven scaling with ad is so awesome you want to have all the AD that you can afford.
I often start with a Vampiric Scepter, but if you feel unsure bout it you can start with a Doran Blade too!
WRIGGLES LANTERN: I picked this because this is an awesome item. Armor, AD,Lifesteal and a free ward, makes it easy to push the enemy turret and not being ganked.
BLOODTHRISTER: In this build i focus mainly in lifesteal. Why? Because you spam riven abilities a lot, and they deal a lot of dmg, and you'll need it to go in in large teamfights.
FROZEN MALLET: When you get your bloodthrister, you will hit really hard. But, you'll also be squishy. Frozen mallet fixes this, and gives you a perma slow.
INFINITY EDGE: Boosts your dps by a lot, and if u can happen to crit with your auto attacks between you Q-Q-Q-W combo you'll make the enemy champ cry OP OP OP .
QUICK SILVER SASH: Fed malzahar? Fed Warwick? or that Urgot is being too aggresive to you and focusing you in teamfights? No more problems, get QSS between your Wriggles > BT
BANSHEES VEIL: "OH **** THAT KARTHUS IS SO ANNOYING OP OP OP OP.." Get this item to avoid karthus ult and to get an extra HP/MP boost.
