Riven Matchups Overview

Riven General information

Riven tips and tricks

Weave auto-attacks while using your abilities (in particular, your Broken WingsQ) to deal increased damage thanks to your Passive. Look at the indicator and auto-attack to consume the stacks.

Riven will get kited quite easily in team fights so she needs to get onto the enemy before she can be pushed away. For this to happen, she should flank the enemy and attack from the side.

As Riven is a strong dueller, make sure you’re playing aggressively throughout the laning phase. In particular, going for trades when the enemy is unable to trade back with you.
