Wild Rift Riven Gameplay Tips and Tricks

Early Game: 

wild rift riven

 

Baron Lane: 

Riven’s Early Game is very strong as she can deal damage with her quick combos and escape without taking much damage. In the early game, keep poking the enemy with her quick attack combos, and you can go all-in if enemies health drops below 50%. If the enemy did not heal after taking the damage, use your ignite and flash to secure the kill in the early game. If you cannot find a good trading opportunity, focus on farming and get your first item before the dragon fight.

Jungle: 

Riven’s Jungle clear is very fast in the Wild Rift. Riven is Manaless champion, so always start the Jungle from your Red Buff as it gives extra damage, which helps Riven to clear jungle camps even faster. Riven is one of the strongest early game jungler in Wild Rift, so do not afraid to engage with enemy jungler on scuttler.

After scuttler, look for ganking opportunity in the lanes. If you don’t find any good ganking opportunity, do full Jungle clear and try to get your first item before the dragon fight.

Riven’s Early game Jungle Path: 

  1. Red Brumbleback
  2. Raptors
  3. Blue Sentinels
  4. Scuttler

Late Game:

Either you are playing Riven on a Baron or Jungler, the Late game will be the same. When Riven gets her 2-3 items in the late game, she becomes super strong and one-shot enemies squishy target with her combos. In the late game, try to find a ganking opportunity with your team and target enemies AD Carry in the Team fight. Riven can 1v2, 1v3 enemy champion if she is fed, so always stick with your team in the late game and help them to win a fight.

Riven Gameplay Tricks:

  1.  When performing the Q and Auto-attack combo, slightly move backwards after hitting the Q and press the auto-attack as it cancels the animation, and you can perform combos much quickly.
  2. You can use the third slash of the Q to jump over terrain.
  3. Flash and cast your ultimate, then press Q to takedown enemy by surprise.
