How to play Riven in teamfights

#1BurningVigorPosted 3/19/2013 5:45:26 PM
Ive been playing Riven a bit and do pretty well. Initial lane and small 2 v 2 team fights I tend to always out do the opponent. But once 5 v 5 comes around, I have no clear idea or plan how to initiate it.

Basically I end up dying really fast, or do some good damage. It's all random as I'm not sure if I should go in first, or wait a bit.

Any Riven players can give me some pointers? Especially if our team doesn't have a tank, then I'm pushed to attack first, then get pounded into the ground in team fights.

buy moar bloodthirsters

Also, Riven is not a tank. Try not to be the initiator, and use your W intelligently. Sometimes that's just stunning the adc, sometimes it's saving it to eff over a Fiddle.

Behllium thanks for the advice. I never thought about stacking blood, as I tend to spread different items for their passive. But the extra life steal may make up enough for her to keep killing.

I do think I tend to spam W too soon in team fighter, probably should save it a bit.

That was mostly a joke, though BT is core on her. You should only be stacking BT when absurdly fed.

I'm not entirely sure what order to build her core items actually.
I come here to argue!
