[S9] Carry God Riven UPDATED

By urthumbvsmine

Hi everybody my name is Thumb and I am an OCE Riven main. I originally wrote this guide a very long time ago but after taking a long break from league my guide slowly died away and never got updated. I never expected to get so many views and incredible comments. I will be trying my best to maintain this guide and keep it up to date in the future. ATM this guide is still being completely updated and is due to changes thanks!

+ fun champ
+ hard to master
+ snowbally champion
+ outplay potential


- hard to master
- squishy

Riven in the current meta (season 9) is currently not an "overpowered" pick. She is the underdog in alot of matchups due to just being out-classed, but in saying that she is easily one of the funnest champions in the entire game with one of the highest skill ceiling begging for outplays! Riven has no built in sustain and low hp regen making learning and executing her combos even more important.

In the current season running an essence reaver has become favourable as it grants

you will basically always have a Black Cleaver at your side giving you cdr, damage, health and allows you to kill tanks unless you have a super special build path you will have this item.

Teleport is a great summoner spell for top laners it provides crazy map pressure and to support other lanes when ganked or even your laner tp'ing.

Ignite is great for kill pressure in lane in the early game which Riven loves.

Flash is a key spell for almost every champ in every roll. It provides an engage and disengage Riven can use Flash to pull off various combos making it an essential spell on Riven
