Tips Against Riven in Top Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Sovereign Kitten says “Start (Q) which will help you avoid her level 1 and 2 all in cheese. You have to play in a certain manner to completely negate the all in damage she does. You have to make sure you have your (Q) available for when she dives into you with the knockup followed by the stun. Blind her the very second you get knocked up with a level 2 blind to counter her empowered damage and mitigate as much damage as possible. She will either then try to run you down, or dash and back away. You can out-trade her doing this every time. Grasp of the Undying is the best rune for this match-up period, followed by Electro / Resolve. Grasp falls off late game in comparison. ”

I Am Goliath says “This matchup difficulty really depends on the riven player but I personally love this matchup, I start doran's blade always and play aggressive early, try to bait out rivens shield by auto attacking her and then go in for the E, also if she engages onto you it's very easy to hit your E, rivens are super telegraphed because of their kit. I play really aggressive pre 6 in this matchup and can usually get kills before then, level 6 is when you have to watch out because her burst with ultimate can be insane, if you haven't backed and have a lot of unspent gold or you're just low on HP I recommend backing and getting some HP because she can burst you from like 75% HP if you aren't careful and she's good at comboing, but you also have potential to outplay her but flashing her second part of ultimate. once you get cleaver and ninja tabi + level 9 you should almost always win the 1v1 unless you missplay, just remember try to bait out her E first with auto attacks because they will use it to shield auto attacks a lot.”

BoilTheOil says “Go Conqueror. Rush plated steelcaps if their team is mostly AD so you can match her mobility and reduce her passive auto damage. Don't try to run at her and fight, wait for her to step up to CS then take a trade with her. Don't waste W in lane because she will probably kill you. Peel her off your team if she's ahead when you teamfight.”

iZeal says “Riven outscales you heavily, but during the laning phase you can put up a good fight. She has 4 abilities to get out of your W, but your Q1 and Q2 outrange her by a large amount so that she has to shield a lot of this damage to avoid getting poked down. You will need 2 rotations to kill her while she can 80-0 you in a 1,5 second stun combo so always stay topped up and do not underestimate her burst.”

Stinkee says “Most Riven matchups are very easy but some good Riven players may outplay you. Riven only does one type of damage so she's very easy to itemize against. Get a Frozen Heart and Ninja Tabi and she won't be able to do much against you. If you are having a hard time against a good Riven you can max W first. Don't use your Q unless you are hidden or she has used all of her dashes. Keep track of when she uses her dashes and look to fight her while they are on cooldown.”
lol Wero says “Riven is one of those champs where she can all in you but its actually a close match up compare to Irelia or Wukong. Watch for her Abilities”
Phrxshn says “Dodge her Broken Wings(Q) as it has 3 dashes or save Mega Adhesive for it. It is possible to Fling the third dash on Broken Wings. Juke out her Ki Burst(W) to prevent stun. Try to avoid her if she uses Valor(E) as she gets a shield and the shield only lasts for 2 seconds. Dodge her Blade of the Exile/Wind Slash(R). (Recommended Items: Rylai's Scepter, Plated Steelcaps) (Outscaling Edge: Even) (Sustained 1v1 Trades: Riven) (Mega Adhesive prevent casting on Broken Wings or her Dashes) (Mega Adhesive prevent casting on her Valor(E) which is her other dash) (Fling overrides one of her Broken Wings)”
At_Tar_Ras says “depends on the player. if riven is good and has ignite it almost has zero counterplay. if riven's bad then it's a free matchup. truly depends on the matchup. use W when you think she'll stun you or when she starts fast-q'ing on you in order to mitigate some damage, slap her with that W and hopefully some minions too for extra burst of DMG and start stacking up Q for an all-in, OR back out and re-engage later.”
Raen says “If it's good Riven it's hard to do something in lane cuz she will always wait for her spells and won't let you take her. Every trade she is just using W and insta E to retreat slowly taking down your hp. You can't hesitate vs Riven, you need to find gap between her W and E CD when she will come close to last hit minion. If you notice opportunity like this you need to all in her, that's how you are winning vs Riven. I recommend fast Tabi.”

Suseri says “Similar to Renekton you can't really trade with her while she can when ever she wants. However she is squishy and can miss/waste her abilities to farm so you have a chance to do stuff pre 6. After 6 you can't win because she can time her combo so you can't avoid her burst. You need your jungler for this. I would not try to fight her after 6 at all since she can also kite you very well and make you waste your R and time. So try to play around teamfights.”

liserith says “When I was first starting out, this matchup was literal hell for me. Her insane gap-closing and her W stun will kill you quite easily. I learned however, if you build like a bruiser and take Legend: Tenacity and Mercury's Treads, you can duel her. Try to out-burst her, and don't be afraid to use your ult. ”

Tips Against Riven in Middle Lane Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

Xelikari says “Riven, like anyone who can get in your face and is strong early has good kill pressure on you. Don't shove the wave too far and try not to overheat when her combo is up, bait her into fighting in your minions early on, but make sure she has to use a Q1 & Q2 to get to you, or you lose the trade. Seekers->Tabi. Smart trades and you can win this matchup”
[PATCH 11.18] Through the Fire and the Flames by Xelikari | Rumble Player
crabbix says “She's melee so you have that over her, but other than your advantages are essentially none. Poke and abuse early as much as possible, try to get seeker's armguard ASAP and once she hits level 6 do not come closer than about 80% of your q range unless you have teammates present.”
angeLoon says “Conq Dblade in resolve Conditioning yasuo just blocks riven's ult,play around her q coldowns Make some armor early so she cant kill you.”

WayOfTheTempesst says “This matchup throughout League history has always favored Riven and I feel like it favors her even more recently due to the items she can build. The only time you really beat Riven is lvl 1-2 due to her not having all of her abilities yet. If you haven't gotten a good trade against her first 2 lvls she pretty much just controls the lane past that point. Try to kite to minions when she starts Qing on you and going back onto her when her Q is down. Post 6 try to windwall before she stuns you to try to not get hit by the 2nd part of her ulti, although a good Riven will always hit you with it by chain ccing you. Don't E directly onto riven or else she will just stun you and turn on you pretty easily, instead try to nado from afar to force her to use her E to dodge then you can go on her when her shield is down. ”

WayOfTheTempesst says “ imo Riven is the only champion who outscales Yone or comes very close. This matchup is by far one of the worst just bc she can chain cc you if you ever get near her while also chunking you. Since you cant win the all in, I would take fleet and just try to win the sustain battle to get her out of lane. take boneplating and revitalize.”

XayLies says “You can be a Trash or she can be a Trash, depends on the person. be sure to get out of her stuns. Also, you can block her R - Wind Slash by your W - Wind Wall. try to time it right as best as you can.”

TheDisconnectEUW says “FOR TOPLANE Riven doesn't really have the ability to catch you without using all of her spells. If she uses all of her spells she cannot kill you. Don't get oneshot in CC and you are good to go.”

resetwice says “Shes tanky and gives a lot of damage! Her kit is very good against Talon. Try to avoid her Q's and W stun jumping a wall, just all win when she wastes her E so no more shield. In general, she will win most duels so I think it's better to roam more. BEST RUNES TO GO: CONQUEROR”
Dr Eggmund says “Poke with Q's and Auto Attack's but don't step up to far as you will be jumped on and punished by her damage. Especially if Riven takes Thunderlord's she will out burst you in the early levels and CC you for an eternity. Our biggest issue is her mobility however so when she has cooldowns up that's when you respect her, but when she doesn't get as much poke and damage on her as you can.”
