Is Riven still good?

I played her way back in S2, and she was pretty good. I ended up refunding her for Rengar during his OP period. I'm thinking of picking her up again though. Is she worth it?

She's in a better place item wise, but they gimped her early game dominance a while back. She still has favorable matchups against most melee champs but still loses really hard to others.

This pretty much sums it up. They nerfed her massive earlygame damage somewhat but also made it so she doesn't fall off as hard in lategame. Changes to her passive, I think. She's still a fine pick, but there are better options out there for a lot of matchups.

Nerfed her strong snowball potential.

Still great.

Just don't pick her against Darius or Garen and you're good to go. Her snowball potential is just insane, even for top laner status.

Also, Red elixir starts with her lead to A LOT of Level 2 FB.

Still decent, but as a melee all-in champion with no sustain or ranged harass outside of ult, you ain't getting back up if you fall.

Ask KingOfAsia, he's considered the Riven expert. On a serious note though, my opinion is that she's one of those champions where if you're any good with her and like playing as her, she's always going to be a good one to have.

In your average game will either carry or be completely worthless. Nothing is more terrifying than a fed Riven, nothing more pathetic than a shutdown one. Vulnerable to counterpicking.
