Item Build Description

Additional information on the items

[Starting Items]

Long SwordLong Sword is a must for a starting item in order RivenRiven to clear jungle camp easily. Also Long SwordLong Sword will help [Riven:passive] to deal more damage in early stages.


[Core Build]

With the recent buff for Black CleaverBlack Cleaver this is a must for RivenRiven as it gives her more additional physical penetration time to time or as he hit enemy champions, with the item passive it improves the damage output of [Riven:passive].

Death's DanceDeath's Dance gives RivenRiven physical vamp and damage, also a  damage reduction. With this item RivenRiven can soak up more damage than expected.

Sterak's GageSterak's Gage gives you a shield when your health is below 30% it is also good for ValorValor so she can earn more shield.


[Full Build] 

This build is not quite familiar and sometimes no one uses this build. But I am here to explain why this build work a lot than expected.


[1]

After having Sterak's GageSterak's Gage you must consider to get additional ability haste so you can easily use combo and skills frequently, in order to do that Trinity ForceTrinity Force is there to save you, this item is one of the item that gives huge amount of ability haste, and not just ability haste but also damage, movement speed and attack speed and not just that but it also gives you additional health stats. Having Guardian AngelGuardian Angel for last slot gives you resurrection upon death and also suitable for Guardian AngelGuardian Angel + [Statis Enchant] combo.


[2]

The 2nd Full build is quite interesting because instead of having Sterak's GageSterak's Gage for 3rd item you will purchase Trinity ForceTrinity Force and buy Mortal ReminderMortal Reminder

WHY?

Well, basically the explanation is this. [Mortal Reminder is best use when you will encounter sustain champions such as [Sett] as frequently used champion and [Mundo] and many more!

With the percentage of physical penetration you can gain you can also reduce thier healing and shielding effects with its passive grievous wound.


Actually there are more builds you can experiment on RivenRiven such as:

Full Sustain Riven

Don't Go Away Build ( A build that gives Riven high mobility and good sustain and damage)

Hunter TitanHunter Titan

As we know RivenRiven is vulnerable in CC effect even though she have shielding that is why we need to build her Mercury's TreadsMercury's Treads if enemy have too much CC composition and Hunter TitanHunter Titan as rune to get more tenacity.


MastermindMastermind

As a jungler this rune is really required, because you are the one who are going to deal damage to major obj. such as Dragons, Baron, Rift heralds and if possible for split-pushing.

Riven

Early Game

Early game is the phase of the game where RivenRiven needs to clear camp and gain access to lvl. 5 to get her ultimate skill Blade Of The ExileBlade Of The Exile . In order to access that, RivenRiven will need to take a full clear jungling rotation starting in Red Buff - Krugs - Raptors - Red Buff Scuttler - Wolf - Blue Buff and lastly Gromp, but if the Blue Buff Scuttler is still available and can be contested then you can also get that. After clearing this camp you can go gank or return home to purchase some equipments and return to farming until the dragon and herald will spawn.



In Early Game stages, don't engage to much as RivenRiven needs to get her item to be more effective in late game. Don't ☠️ Die

In this stage to try to get more gold and vision in order to help your team for ℹ️ information


Riven

Mid Game to Late Game

In Mid Game this is the stage where you have 2 or 3 item. Also, you need to think what things you need to do here.


[Join Team Fights]

This is one of the few options you need to consider in mid game. Participating in skirmishes is an option you need to consider because you can give damage to enemy back lines in this stage (if you do well in early game).


[Split Pushing]

Well if you didn't do well in early game and you can see some open lanes (No enemy heroes and open for push) well, you can consider this option as you can provide and widen your vision and slowly winning the lanes and equalizing the game.


[Keep Farming and avoid Skirmishes]

this is the last option, funny yet true. If you cannot really do good and your team is a losing team, just keep safe and farm to get access to your equipment and when you can get your equipment ready then ask your team to turn the tides on!

Riven

Conclusion

To truly master a hero, it is not about learning the combos and meta item. But, learning how to manage yourself in a team.



RivenRiven is not hard to learn but it is difficult to master because of her vulnerability for hard CC composition, with this reason you cannot really play her well especially if your team composition do not have tank or imitators to soak damage for you. RivenRiven is playable in an assassin way. Which means you will really go and initiate skirmishes, but you will going to finish it. That is why I am providing short but effective build you can use in your rank games.  


MAP AWARENESS

this is really needed in order to win every rank games with RivenRiven you need to watch where the enemies are and where will they headed in order to perform a gank, a split - push and to farm freely in early game.
