“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.”
“Abuse her cooldowns. She can burst you quite quickly. I like to run Phase Rush into this matchup as you can either keep chasing her or run away from her after a trade much easier. 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. If she misses her stun then try to fight her as she can't create distance as easily then.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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. STEELCAPS ARE A GOOD BUY. 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. Steelcaps are an amazing purchase against her. Thanks to Conqueror giving more healing AND some Rivens opting for Ravenous/omnivamp items, 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. ”
“A Skill matchup.
If you're able to parry her hard cc you win the trade. If she's able to bait out your parry she wins the trade.
 Tabis are a good buy.
*Important* Currently she's busted out of her god-damn mind and Riot refuses to nerf her so consider banning her if you're in High-Elo.
“In this matchup you need to respect Riven's cooldowns. At level 1 she can hard outtrade you with Q >> AA >> Q >> AA >> Q >> AA. Especially if she's running ignite. At level 3 you can take short trades, try to avoid using abilities on her shield and like I said play around her cooldowns. Build bramble vest early as she AA's a lot but also to counter her conqueror healing. At level 6 you can win the all in as long as she's about 70% health. ”
“Go Conqueror. I ban this disgusting creature, this champ is so broken idk, you don't beat her at any stage in the game. In low elo she's not as much of a problem, ban Mordekaiser instead. Build armor early game into full tank and don't fight her because she is just gonna run away or take half ur hp. Don't waste W in lane because she will probably kill you. Play for teamfights. ”
“completely skill dependent but tilts on riven's side. you can cancel any part of her q rotation with your knock ups. Just dont let her do her fast attack animation cancel bug that has yet to be patched out and you generally win trades. Dont walk up into melee range into her, play a bit behind your melee minions and punish her when she walks up to cs. Cs for free while her e+q are on cd after escaping your combo.
that being said, she will always all in you at any point if you try to step to up to cs, and since her abilities come up sooner your best bet is to go trans + cdr shard and rush cdr, if you have more cdr you have the upper hand and can punish her relentlessly.
watch out for her items and make sure to not stay in lane under 60% health post6 if shes running ign or has executioners. ”
“Get in early with all your skills and control the waves.
You can easily avoid her R thanks to Flash.
If she tries to stop you, you can use W.”
