Guide to Countering Riven

  • Save a disable against Riven and bait her to dive under your turret to stun and kill her.
  • Because of Riven's high burst potential, don't engage her alone.
  • Riven counters many enemies in 1:1 fights. She scales very well off of damage and will become very fearsome in the late game.
