Bye bye Riven

You probably won't be remembered.


Runic Blade
Adjusted damage to 15-45% of her total Attack Damage (based on champion level) from 5-15 (+0.5 bonus attack damage)

My old start with her just went from 124 damage per hit to 105.

No need to be overdramatic, the nerf isn't even that bad. She's still viable.

Her early game gets trashed, but (depending on your AD) she is actually stronger around level 12+

In fact her 18 is much stronger.

45% of total AD > 50% Bonus AD + 15 flat damage.

Great, now when people tower dive riven after getting first blood on her she can say "don't worry guys, I hit slightly harder later!"

The game is a giant snowball. Losing early means you have a miniscule chance of winning late.

Not saying your wrong, because you are completely correct.

Lets say Renekton or LeBlanc lost a bit of their early game damage but increased their late game damage a lot. While also being able to build tankier.

Would you say GREAT, THEY ARE BROKEN NOW.

The hit isn't that bad early game but helps her quite a bit later.

Obviously I'd have to see it play out in game but don't pretend there aren't any tops that start slow and build hard later.

And just FYI I don't like this change, I also didn't like the nerf of her hp/5.

I think they will revert this at one point. It's over the top and absolutely uncalled for. Riven doesn't need any more bloody nerfs.

Wasn't Riven's major weakness during S2 that armor was too strong? Now that's gone, and she is a character which always has some lifesteal, which benefits from the hp stacking nowadays.

Yeah, she sucks now, there is no way that a minor buff of 20 dmg in the late game where everyone have their warmogs can compesate the lack of damage early on.

Btw, i dont know if its the same on the NA server, but on the BR server and EUW when i read the description about her passive in game, its saying that its a bonus of 20%-50% and NOT 15%-45%. Can someone who plays on NA confirm this?
