Best Riven Runes

If you are trying to beat a well-mixed enemy team composition, you should strongly consider getting Riven the Conqueror, Triumph, Legend: Bloodline, Last Stand, Nullifying Orb, and Transcendence runes.

Guide to Playing with Riven

  • Riven can dive enemy champions because of her burst potential but is vulnerable when disabled so make sure to pick your targets and timing well.
  • Use your burst abilities on the enemy carries during teamfights to spike them down early.
