Summoner Spells Back to Top

Your Summoner Spells will be 12.pngand 4.png.


The first one because it will help you go to lane rapidly after backing, but most of all: it will help you helping your teammates and splitpushing. (backdoors, objectives control)

The second one will help you doing really nice plays by taking your opponents by surprise.
You can use flash also to escape enemies, but since Riven allows you to wall hop, with a good amount of cdr you should be able to escape without using this.



Here is me, and the start of the video is exactly what i mean by taking your opponents by surprise using 4.png.
Also, the build I used in the video is the one I'm explaining here, so..keep reading!

New Runes Back to Top

Masteries Back to Top

These are my aggressive masteries with 92.png.

As you can see this is probably the runepage who will give you the highest damage output in early game.


Obviously you don't want to take these in every game, since some matchups will require you to play with a "defensive" style. In that case we delete the ferocity tree, and we put those 12 masteries in resolve. Going Unyielding, Tough Skin, Veteran's Scars and Insight.

Your abilities:


Really, don't look this tree, it's just symbolic, since these can be different literally from game to game. 

What you absolutely MUST keep in mind is:

-Can you poke your lane enemy? Start with, and max your Q    riventricleave.png
-You have to be defensive? Start with, and Max rivenfeint.png instead.

Your W will mainly do it's job stunning your lane opponent, but it can't be your first source for damage output or your defensive ability.

Level up your R as soon as you can.

Items Back to Top

Starting Items

    My start items the 90% of the times
    Take these if you want more sustain in lane, but still want to be somehow aggressive. (I still suggest to take the refillable, since with Teleport it's more convenient and you won't have to spend any more money on potions)
    I take these just in rare cases, when i have to play really defensive. Doran's gives you more hp and lifesteal

Core Items

    Items you absolutely must have at the 15 minutes mark. At this point you will have 45% cdr and a good damage output, which means you should be able to 1v1 your opponent without problems, or escape every gank kinda easily

Situational Items

    CHOOSE BETWEEN -Hydra: build it if you want even more damage and lifesteal -Mercurial Scimitar: the enemy team has a lot of cc, and you also kinda want lifesteal and magic resist -Bloodthirster: awesome item that gives you incredible sustain -Duskblade: armor penetration and a really good passive -Sterak's: if you want to survive damage bursts going somehow tanky -Guardian Angel: because everyone wants a second chance

The build I was using in the game in the video in the beginning (built with this order from left to right) was: 



3158.png3071.png3074.png3140.png3026.png3139.png3072.png

And this because I was carrying that game, so I wanted the most damage output, but still being able to survive extreme teamfights without dying.
As you can also see from the video, almost every enemy had a crowd control spell, and Syndra was the most fed of all of them, so 3139.png was a must have.

VS

Darius

Hard

This matchup is kinda hard, because a single mistake can make you dead flesh, and you can't kill him alone.

You need just to remember one thing, if you can't escape his Q, just go as close as you can to him, the closer you are to darius, the less damage you will take

VS

Ekko

Easy

You can smash him, and dodge every ability he throws, making him waste mana

VS

Fiora

Medium

Really depends on both players skill

VS

Gangplank

Easy

No need to say that you can dodge his barrels with Q or E, and take no damage from his Q with your E

VS

Riven

Easy

Should be a skill matchup, but since you are reading this guide you will wreck the other riven

VS

Shen

Easy

You just can't kill him, so just outfarm him

VS

Teemo

Easy

Easier than it looks, stay safe until level 6, then go all in on him as soon as your R is up

VS

Yasuo

Medium

The most annoying of all, again, a skill matchup

End Notes Back to Top

As you probably saw in the very beginning, I'm just Silver, so this may look to you like a Guide made by an unprofessional player, who simply wanted to do something in his spare time, but it's not.

I literally studied this champ from scratch, and in just two weeks, after practicing in normals for months, 

 Riven brought me from Bronze 5 to Silver, and I'm still learning her. 

I respect the champ, who isn't just as simple as many people say.

Riven is actually the champ in the whole game with the lowest base health.
So yeah, you have a great damage output with the items and a good cooldown reduction, but a simple mistake can kill you, the simplest crowd control ability can make you useless, mostly in this season, where the meta were the tanks.

So why play her?

Because I like challenges, and isn't a world where champions can go back in time, open portals in walls, make people immortal, shoot lasers from their eye or simply become invisible.. a challenge?

You can destroy them all, with just a broken sword.
