[Season 10] Satoyo´s Riven Guide

By Satoyo
Hey guys my name is Satoyo. My peak was Diamond 2 and i have 1+ Million Mastery points on Riven. I´m playing league since Season 5 and have been enjoying it so far. I apologize in advance because of my english grammar, i learned english in school and wasn´t the best at all. Anyway this is my first guide ever and I hope you like it!.

I started streaming occasionally a while ago but then I gave up because of my weird schedule (basically whenever i wanted to) and my channel didn´t really grow. But now I decided to stream regularly and build up my own community that I can be proud of.
So please, enable me to chase my dream further!


+ High burst damage
+ Great mobility
+ Mana-less
+ Low cooldowns once you get cdr
+ Scales very good with AD
+ Great kill potential and high influence
+ CC on 2 Spells

Riven is one of these champs that are worth maining because she is never out of meta and you can learn her to perfection. Once you learned you will never stop playing her due to the enjoyment you will receive.

- Relatively squishy
- No sustain in her kit
- High skillcap to master
- Extremely weak if set behind
- Weak to CC
- Vulnerable to Ganks

You might face cons of Riven pretty soon if you started playing her. She is hard to play and requires a lot of time to master. She has some bad matchups and can be easily countered by CC because of lacking survivability.
Summoner Spells Back to Top
Flash is by far the most important spell to take on almost all champions and Riven is definitely one of them. Engaging, escaping, closing the gap, it has it all. This spell gives the enemies no time to react and is very important for changing the game.
Teleport (A must in this meta in most circumstances) works a lot better when you have to be more passive. Against tanky champs, champs you have a hard time against in lane, or if your just a more passive player in general, Teleport is a great alternative to Ignite. One of the main uses of Teleport in this meta is to help secure the "Dragon Soul". This is the main reason I recommend it now due to just how much of an impact this mechanic has on the game now.
Ignite is a little more situational, it gives riven amazing kill pressure and goes hand in hand with aggressive playstyles. Against tanks like Cho'Gath, it falls off immensely after about level 4 or so. Whether it is to help burst an enemy, reducing lifesteal and health regeneration, or just finishing off an enemy, Ignite can do it with style.
Runes Back to Top


Conqueror is the best Rune for Riven overall because she can stack it really fast and gives her bonus AD which scales well with Riven. Besides she gets some spellvamp/lifesteal which is good on Riven too.
Triumph is really good because the HP you recieve after a takedown can be a lifesaver sometimes and it just feels really nice in skirmishes.

This row really depends on the matchup and your playstyle. The most useful one might be Legend: Tenacity. Legend: Alacrity helps you at fast comboing with less mistakes if you are unexperienced.
Last Stand became a standard rune on almost every bruiser right now because of its value compared to coup de grace. It is overall just better in the fight and gives you more outplay potential.

There is not much to say except that you can swap the armor with mr if against ap.
You get 300 Gold for free and the boots are even better than the normal ones, you can spend your gold on combat items.
It is kind of self explaining. Riven is really good with CDR so Cosmic Insight is the best choice.
Matchups Back to Top
As I mentioned that this is my first guide I dont want to put too much time into it, so I will just link you all matchup guides so you can look it up
Essential Combos Back to Top
Here are the most important combos you need to master with riven. By the way the videos are not from me, so credits belong to Justasriven.
