Riven excels at dueling multiple melee attackers at once, as she will be on an almost equal footing damage-wise. If pairing up against Riven, don't go in as double melee until she has expended her full combo.

All of Riven's damage is physical, prioritize high Armor if an opposing Riven gets out of control.
