Hi, I'm czeslaf, and this is my first build on mobafire. This time, I'll show You my Riven build, so let's get started.

Back to Top


Ionian Boots of Lucidity is a boots choice on Riven, because of 15% cooldown reduction.

The Bloodthirster is first offensive item you get, you'll have him through whole game.

Frozen Mallet is your defencive item, that gives you 20 damage, 700 health, and nice slow. It's another item your carrying through all game.

Phantom Dancer is item that I pick for 30 critical chance, 55 attack speed and little movement speed bonus.

infinity edge is obvious pick for an ad carry, because of 80 attack damage, 25 critical chance and a nice bonus for critical strike damage.

Youmuu's Ghostblade is great item for Riven, It gives you 15% cooldown reduction, 30 damage, 15 critical chance, 20 armor penetration, AND a nice active, that's usefull at chasing, or at difficult fights.

9x greater mark of desolation

Riven is an ad carry, so armor penetration marks is only one choice that can be made.

9x Greater Seal of Attack Damage

I take attack damage seals, for nice early boost on damage that's dealt.

9x Greater Glyph of Attack Speed

I like to take this glyph, because of bigger dps on early, mid and late game.

3x Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage

Again, I take attack damage quintessences, for nice early boost on damage that's dealt.

Abilities and Masteries

Ability Sequence
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18

Broken Wings is your 2nd damage dealing skill, and a great tool for chases and escapes.

Ki Burst is your most powerfull damage dealing skill, it stuns for 0.75s

Valor is your defensive skill, you dash to your current mouse location, and shields you, it's only one shield skill with ad ratio.

Blade of the Exile is Your ulti, it's on low cd so use it whenever you see chance to get a kill. It's second use is wind slash, Riven is emmiting a schockwave, that damages enemies, it deals damage depending od how much target currently has health, use it to finish your enemies off!

Summoner Spells


is one of best summoner spells in game, It gives You great chase AND escape abilities.


is another great spell, that can save Your life, or help get you a kill.

Other spells that you can pick:


Some Damage over Time (DoT) is always usefull, spell to pick up fleeing enemies.


I don't like this spell, but some better lane sustain is always nice.


It's always some buff to Your attack damage, but think is it worth.


If You'r afraid of heavy CC take it, You can save your life with this spell.


If You can't use flash or You just don't like it, take ghost.


You can take it, if You'r going to go solo top.

Skills NOT to take


You'r not support, don't take it.


Really? You don't have mana, don't take it.


Your not support or tank, don't take it.


Your not support or tank, don't take it.
