I am looking to add a char to my collection, but after careful review of both characters I cannot decide which one to get. So I was looking for info about each char from people who have played with them.

Riven is for more serious gamers, she has better dmg, and a better kit (better kit IMO), but Rengar is a lot more fun to play.
+Rep if I was of any assistance or just for hugs :3 <3

Riven actually does damage... I've played Rengar and I believe that for a bursty type his damage is actually underwhelming and gets bursted down each with no escape mechanism other than his ult... and he's not that great of a jungler even though he is made out to be

Both champs are only as good as the person playing them. Rengar is nice and his mechanics are very good for jungle and ganking. He's not much to look at in huge teams fights or if you are actually trying to lane him with a partner. He has a slow which is great and it roots with 5 Ferocity. However, the most successful Rengars I see are junglers. He jungles fast, can gank hard, and doesn't need blue buff either. Plus, another downside is if you can't get trophies for your bonetooth, he isn't as good as he can be. Riven I feel has more to bring to the table in a few ways. She can jungle, she can solo top like a beast, she has aoe, a stun, her ult is great for damage and ganking, she doesn't use a resource pool, and can get really tanky really quick. Now same thing as with Renger, she is a skill champ so you need to be somewhat skilled to play her. She doesn't need blue buff, but she does benefit from the CDR that it offers. When it comes down to it, it's mostly personal preference for your play style. Both champs are skill oriented champs, can gank well, and can jungle relatively quickly. It's all on what you want to do.

Happy hunting.

Riven
I wouldn't touch Rengar until some minor tweaks/buffs because he is slightly up
Plus, Riven is better overall

Good rengars would jump Q and completely rape Riven early on. After Riven is 3. Good luck regar.
