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. ”

Rhoku says “TL;DR - SKILL MATCHUP. FIGHT HER LEVEL 1 WITH W. CAREFUL OF HER BURST/ALL IN. RESPECT HER LEVEL 6 DAMAGE. TRY TO CANCEL HER Q WITH YOUR E. NINJA TABIS ARE A GOOD BUY. AFTERSHOCK IS RECOMMENDED. CONQUEROR IS GOOD. The Riven matchup is, obviously, HEAVILY dependent on how good the Riven is. But in general, your biggest priorities should be not underestimating her damage and not wasting your abilities because a good Riven will be able to take advantage. She is much harder to deal with when she has ignite so just try to be careful. You are stronger than her level 1 if you level your W so try to make use of this and heavily outtrade her. Try to trade against her when she wastes her abilities. If possible, use your E in order to cancel her third Q as this can leave her in a very vulnurable position. If you do not have your E, you can buffer your W to slow her down just as she knocks you up. This might not matter much in the end though, as she has a ton of mobility. Level 6 is tricky as you have to respect her ultimate. If she catches you off, she can kill you from full health quite easily. It is going to be quite tricky to land your Qs on her but doing so is the key to beating her. This is an extremely snowbally lane so try not to die. And if you do, try not to die any more to her as that would potentially render the game unwinnable. Ninja Tabis are an amazing purchase against her. Thanks to the new Conqueror giving more healing AND some Rivens opting for Death’s Dance, Bramble Vest is another good pick up against her, especially if the rest of her team requires you to get Merc boots to survive in teamfights. Conqueror is good into her and Grasp/PTA are usable. However, the rune that allows you to dumpster her in lane is Aftershock.”
PH45 says “Abuse her cooldowns. She can burst you quite quickly. At level 6 if you are low be careful as she can quickly catch up to you and just ult you to death. Very slippery so hard to kill early. ”
Drake6401 says “Skill matchup in your favor. Do not get near her at level 1. She beats you this early. Only engage at level 2 when you have a dash or stun. Baiting her Q will win you a trade, or you can get your damage off before she can use the full combo. She doesn't typically cling to her shield but if you can't wait it out, stun her and dash off. I've found Riven to be fairly divable if you make sure to either one shot her or bait her stun.”

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.”
ObiW says “My favourite Ban. I dont like to play against her :) ”

CFCryo says “Very much a skill matchup. Riven's third Q can be repelled by a well-timed Flay. If mistimed, it will still hit you and you'll be knocked back. Clever use of Riven's stun can guarantee you get hit by the third Q, however, so make sure you carefully use distance. Sometimes Flaying away won't be the answer. Stuns do NOT stop your Q animation, so if you predict a stun, use your own one to minimise her advantage. There's a lot to learn here, so best to learn by just playing.”
Anoying bro5 says “This is a skill matchup so you have to adjust to your opponents play style. You can trade lvl 1 with your Q poke, but make sure to hit a vital to escape her return damage with your movement speed. You want to parry her 3rd Q or her W stun. If you dont have parry, you lose the trade. Her ult is very strong combined with her full combo, so be cautious of her damage.”

MarkFromSingedMains says “Your W cancels her Q and E, and your E can cancel her final Q and E. At level 6 she will use all of her abilities in one go and kill you if you're not careful, and depending on how good the Riven is you might get destroyed the entire laning phase. Peel for your team and you should be fine, she can't engage whilst on your W.”

Rhoku says “As skill matchup as it gets. She can kite you very well but it should be your goal to make sure she doesn't get to do it for free. Activate your Ultimate early. Land your Qs. Don't eat a full Q combo from her as this will be very bad. Tabis, Seekers Armguard are both excellent into her together. You win in ultimate and you win all ins. But I wouldn't try to all in her as she can escape very easily. Overall, just Q spam poke and save your E. Use it to get her back into the fight and stop her from escaping. Make sure to not use your E before she uses her own E. If she goes INTO you, then she is FREE. If all else fails, just wait until level 6. You don't straight up outscale her like other matchups so don't count on you winning lategame for this one.”

Tips Against Riven in the Jungle Tips Provided by MOBAFire Guide Authors

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.”

Neallord says “As soon as you get close she might stun you and dash out. Waste of time to gank.”
Laverenz says “Riven is a fairly easy matchup as Skarner. Even though she might jump around, you can just stun her or ult her, and your team will do the rest of the job, while you focus on killing another carry.”

Yzroma says “Riven can easely dodge your Q then she has more DPS than you. Don't gank Riven if she didn't use her spells on your toplaner. Also she can disengage a fight with you so even when she's low you can't kill her.”

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

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.”

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.”

CaptianMike says “I hate riven. She is mobile, tons of AD, and shields that will make you cry. It's no use to try and ult to kill her as she can block most, if not all of the damage. She snowballs really hard. Your goal this lane is to not die. Get farm is you can but the number 1 priority is not to die to her pre-6. She isn't as much a threat later though so try your best to outscale her.”

elnino9 says “Avoid an auto attack battle early on, she wins every time. Go for quick pokes to proc electrocute by setting up Q dagger on a minion. Don't do damage through her shield, let it finish so you don't waste your cooldowns on nothing. If she ults, shunpo away immediately. If you don't have Shunpo in this scenario, you're fu****. Never fight riven when she has a big sword. Avoid all-ining when she has 3rd Q ready to go. Go in/out - you don't have to keep fighting her, especially in lane.”
xAsuta says “Riven shouldn't be a problem since your combo counters hers. Your passive gives you great sustain. If you still have problems, just rush ninja tabis.”

BloooodTV says “D-Blade. Only trade with your shield up but don't let her stun you or you lose the fight. You only win fights pre-3 honestly, after that point its over. Once she is level 3 only fight when she has w and e down. Even level 6 she can beat you if you play it incorrectly. Buffs make her even worse to play against! Take Conq.”
