How to play

  1. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. Are they heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.

Tips and Tricks

  1. Riven's Broken Wings locks onto the champion your cursor is over at the time of cast. If you want to move past your opponent, make sure that your cursor is past your opponent as well.
  2. Riven lacks a source of healing or strong defense and must compensate with burst combos. Lead into fights with Broken Wings and Ki Burst, while using Valor to escape and absorb counter-harass.
