Deaths Dance  It's the first thing you need to do. Riven relies on items a lot. The frequent collision, close to take damage, so it is necessary for items to increase health and reduce damage. The long-term turrets can farm a lot of soldiers, then they can grow up quickly.

How to play Riven

Riven will reach the strongest damage when the wrath bar reaches 3 yellow lines. Your anger bar is below the blood column. Dry the machine at this time, only the best.

Riven wants to deal the most damage you constantly use alternating skills and basic attacks. This is also the way to cancel the attack animation. Like this, assuming you use skill 1 every time you drop down, it will take a little time to continue to add the 2nd time, then you can always use the passive while saving time delaying both lanes.

In teamfight or solo. Remember to turn on your ultimate before the increased range is easier to deal damage.

Combo:

BROKEN WINGS + AA

Combo 2

VALOR + BROKEN WINGS

Combo 3

KI BURST + VALOR

Combo 4

VALOR + BLADE OF THE EXILE + BROKEN WINGS

Not using fast cooldown mana leads to freely spamming skills.

Maneuver to jump over all walls.

Quick approach to prey.

It is very easy to create a wombo combo thanks to the skill of knocking someone who likes this very much.

That means a lot of practice.
