this is a guide for peeps that are good pleyers beacuse if you are just feeding you wont be able to get this build
a very important part is play with the KEYBOARD

at the start of the game riven has the advantage of getting in or out of a fight with ease beacuse of broken wings then valor at lvl 2. you want to harass as much as you can your enemy since you will do a lot of dmg thnx to longsword but always b sure to make more dmg than what you recive since you melle it isnt easy to harass without getting hit. and please try to get as many kills as you can you will need them and DONT BE GREEDY most of the peeps fails beacuse of that

in the mid game you should have frozen mallet wich will give you more survivality and the ability to chase down your enemies easier beacuse of its slow and bloodthirster should keep you up. by this time you may want to start ganking and taking turrets down sice you can do both of them quite fast. try to b using you abilities all the time and also the second effect of your ult is great for team fights so plz aim it right and it might get you some kills and also prevent them from running away. but rememeber riven isnt 100% tank nor a 100% DPS she is like 50% 50%
a good way to gank someone if he/she is running is to open the fight with 2 uses of broken wings to get close and the third to prevent him/her from runnign then ki burst and valor to chase IF NOT you want to use valor as soon as you start the fight and if it is a char like kat or nunu you may want to save stun for the ult beacuse it can kill with ease or do a lot of dmg while moving and with stun you just have to click W

In the end game you should have at least the 2 bloodthirster and try to always have the stacks up beacuse with them up it will beacome very hard to kill you since you get a lot of dmg and lifesteal but still you want to play smart and dont go too confident

i chosed this runes to give riven more survivality but also more penetration to make you more... Riven... riven is very strong beacuse the ones that matches he strenght cant match the survivality or the other way around

I choosed longsword first beacuse it lets you get first blood with ease and harass a lot better since it will make you do tons of dmg at start
then mercury streads to make the stuns and **** last less
the bloodthister are to keep you up since riven still does a lot of dmg
frozen mallet is to give some health to sustain you and also to slow your enemies and be able to chase them down easily
sunfirecap is for a lil more survivality and the effect that deals dmg to evryone around you can be very useful
and last but not least The balck cleaver one of my favorite weapons beacuse it stackes armor pen for easy raping but it isnt that nesesary for riven so i put it last but if you get to it you might be raping evryone in a couple of seconds

Skill Sequence

the skill sequence is planned first to b able to catch up with range and have advantage over melle and do a lot of dmg

Summoner Spells

i use ignite as a last shot spell if they are running away and you cant kill them beacuse of turret or anything else and is rly low you just ignite and he dies
i use exhaust to make chasing easier and also running
