Guide to Countering Riven as Draven

Tips for Playing as Draven against Riven

If Draven doesn't move, Spinning Axe will fall near his present location. It will fall directly on him, or just to the right or left.

If Draven does move after attacking, Spinning Axe will lead him in the direction of his movement. Use this to control where the Spinning Axe will go.

Advice to Win Against Riven

Riven has a great deal of mobility but she cannot move very far with any one skill. Rooting or silencing her during her combo will greatly reduce her effectiveness.

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.
