Summoner Spells Back to Top

4.png is core, you always need this to outplay or stomp your enemy when he doesnt see you coming and 1shot him with a great combo (maybe xD)


12.png is a great way to play defensive if you think you can't win the lane cuz the enemy champion is a big riven counter. if you're low just feel free to go back and don't overestimate (like baiting him undertower). you have your 12.png, just use it on lane without losing much XP&CS.
if you have 12.png and your enemy has 14.png you shouldn't play too aggressive when you're low cuz even if you would kill him you may die of the 14.png, if it's firstblood for you then it's ok :3
(I ALWAYS TAKE TP AT TOP)


14.png if you're gonna win toplane when enemy picks a countered champ and you think you can easily win it OR if you're in the mood to tryhard-fight him ;). you should ALWAYS take 14.png if your enemy top is Mundo to reduce his heal and fight him easier with that.



3.png is really good (and i mostly do it) if you're going mid cuz many midlaners have burst (for example leblanc, xerath, brand). also good in 3v3 if your AP-carry needs the 14.png to win his lane and you'll need atleast 1 3.png in your team against the burst

rivenpassive.png the passive is strong (early dmg got buffed in 6.1). whenever you cast a spell your next AA get's bonus damage (scaling of ur AD) stacking up to 3 times. so don't forget to AA after using your Q's, W or E to deal bonus damage. the bonus damage is also included to minions and everything else (NOT TOWERS)



riventricleave.pngskilling Q is important cuz its damage at lvl 1-2 is very low. lvl 1: 10 (+)  |  lvl 2: 30 (+)
starts with basic 10 dmg and adds +20 damage per level. skilling it 3 times should work. you can stop skilling Q after that and may continue with skilling E. the Q is actually more for the passive cuz for each Q you'll get a stronger AA but it's good if you have a bit more dmg with it :)


rivenfeint.pngthe E is the importantest important stuff to have with riven. skilling it adds more shield and lower cooldown (i think each skillpoint on it reduces the cd for 1 sec or more) which is pretty strong.

stuff you can do with a bigger shield: 

-do some damage to enemy under tower and then tank the towershot with the E 
(easy poke under tower)

-in laning-phase your opponent tries to damage you when you're near him and want to take some cs.
 what you could do is when a minion is low you dash(E) to it and get the lasthit without taking much dmg, care  when  your enemy is (for example) renekton cuz he could stun you and do some dmg when your shield isn't active  anymore.

-tank dmg of spells

-don't give a f**k about the poke of vlad or other champs


rivenmartyr.pngthe W is mostly there to interrupt things, add more cc so enemy can't instantly flash/dash/jump etc. so you can kill him easier when he's low. the damage output is pretty good in lategame but in early you could use it to use thunderlord (example: Q+AA+W and then dash away)


rivenfengshuiengine.pngriven's ult (R) gives u 20% more AD, more range on your AA's, Q and W. you can activate it to have that bonus and reactivate it to shoot a wave of dmg >:D. when you've reactivated it you still have the bonus dmg+range until your ult expires.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    long+3 pots
    i go for warhammer and then black cleaver, or rush black cleaver if i'm against a full tank. if you rush black cleaver you go for phage 1st
    rush this if your opponent is AP
    good start that i'm using a lot since a while

Core Items

    since deaths dance is broken and lethality is back since 7.14 i'd recommend these items to buy (lethality for advanced players cuz 1 mistake can kill you instantly), the normal build is still good and i'll use it more often than the lethality build since it's saver. maw is a great 1st-item against burst-AP (brand, syndra) or if they have 2-3 AP it's CORE, you can also just only build hexdrinker first and then go to black cleaver
    get this, not titanic. even more combo stufferino :p
    lord dominik against people with huge amount of HP. not really core if they dont have anyone with 3,5k+ hp (example: cho, braum, ...). this item turns full-tanks into butter <3
    a very good item on riven but not core anymore
    example item build for 7.24. replace steraks with maw if they have a lot of AP, remember that you can't have both the steraks and maw passive since it's unique. replace hydra with titanic if you want more tankyness but you'll have less lifesteal
    example lethality item build (with lethality runes and masteries). OP dmg and OP lifesteal

Situational Items

    situational tanky items
    choose, if you get black cleaver don't buy cdr-boots.
    good dmg&hp, 20% cdr and armor pen^^ remember that u can only have 45%cdr so don't get too much cdr, if getting bc u shouldn't get cdr-boots.
    since this item got changed i gave it a try and it's actually pretty good. maybe not as first item against a full tank but you can disable wards+clear them and the true damage AA is good :)
    great item against AP-enemys. you could rush this after warhammer if ur laner is an annoying AP-poke champ
//IF YOU WANT INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT TO BUY AGAINST WHICH CHAMPIONS CHECK OUT MY BOOSTED MATCH HISTORY OR CHECK OUT BETTER PLAYERS xd

you can't just buy 24/7 the same items every single game, you have to think about your team and enemies.

if you don't have any kind of tankyness in your team: go off-tank
if enemies have a lot cc (stun, root etc): get mercury boots

actually the most information you need is above at the item-section or check out my match history

VS

Aatrox

Easy

ballsdeep engage at lvl 2-3, engage if he has no jump (or dodge while in fight) but care of his passive if you towerdive.

VS

Cho'Gath

Hard

cho will dominate you when it's getting to the lategame so try to kill him early (under lvl 6) cuz he'll deal insane dmg and will be tanky in lategame. engage when he has no W. don't let him get big and tanky, ask your jungler for ganks or to babysit your lane so he's gonna cry >:3. you could also swap lanes with ur midlaner if it's easier for you at mid. if you swap lanes you could try to push mid (or kill the enemy) and then roam top to make sure that cho isn't getting fed (with ult)

VS

Dr. Mundo

Medium

try not to fight when he activated his E, dodge Q and poke him a bit with Q+AA and W and move back. if you manage to make him halflife you could actually kill him if you have your ult. his Q's cd is very low and does huge dmg&slow so care about that, never dive him if you know that he has ultimate. you could take ignite with you so he won't heal that much from his ult OR take "Mortal Reminder" with you which puts grievous wounds on the enemy (his self-heal gets weaker)

VS

Garen

Medium

many people think that garen is the hardest counter of riven but everyone knows that a garen is maxing Q for a longer silence. just max your E, try to tank the Q damage with ur E while you dash away and he will (~70%) activate his E and then go in when his spin is half-over.

VS

Gnar

Medium

a good gnar player can rek you at laning phase in mini gnar form. try dodging all the Q's or max E and tank the Q dmg. in mega gnar form he can't do anything to you when there is no wall close to him (cuz of his ult) and under lvl 6 you can easily fight him when he's mega gnar cuz you can move fast away from his slow animations

VS

Illaoi

Hard

hard to play against. i didn't play much against illaoi cuz she's instabanned BUT i think you shouldnt really try to fight her in 1v1 at lvl 6 cuz she'll be much stronger with her ult (damage+heal x.x). if you manage to dodge the tentacles it'll be ok i guess ;D ask ur jungler for early ganks to get you ahead

VS

Irelia

Medium

don't try to fight her ballsdeep at early-game. ask your jungler for ganks but if you're on your own just max your E and then W so you can get close to the minions and take some if she's not aggressive. at laning phase when she's coming closer just use W Q and 1 AA then go back with your E. NEVER towerdive an irelia and dont try to fight her when she has her stun. try to bait it out. go ballsdeep (savely) so she'll stun you, then go back and engage again BEFORE she has her stun up.

VS

Nasus

Medium

just be aggressive af and don't let him stack, it could be veeery easy if ur enemys doesn't play nasus a lot. at good players or nasus mains you could get some problems cuz they know how to play against riven, freeze the lane and zone him, attack him if he gets closer for a stack. if you're fed (like 2/0 or 3/0) you should easily win the lane with snowballing yknow :p

VS

Quinn

Hard

probably one of the most annoying matchups cuz she is ranged, doesnt need tp to come back cuz of her R movespeed and at laning phase you cant really do much if she has her E up (knockback). a very good patient quinn player will ALWAYS save her E for you until you engage and poke you every single time you get into her range. i'd skill E atleast 3 times and then go over to Q. use your E to tank her passive's damage (if she hits Q or E on you, or after 8 seconds i guess she has her passive up which deals around 100+ bonus damage on her next basic attack on you)

VS

Renekton

Hard

don't fight him in early-mid game cuz he'll rek you hard at 1v1. try fighting him under your tower or ask your jungler for some ganks. max E against him and tank the damage of his stun (W) which deals a ton of damage. when he has no stun (W) and no fury feel free to engage on him and deal some damage but don't get too greedy, just try to do damage, go back, damage, go back AND THEN engage if he has like 30-40% hp

VS

Riven

Medium

the better player wins, easy.
