Not to mention that animation canceling isn't actually that difficult to do once you get the hang of it.

id like to see you do the quick q combo lol thats like the hardest thing ive tried in league

and having an easy build doesnt make her easy. you say hp is the only thing to manage but look up her hp regen..its next to 0. plus once you play her alot you learn there are like 4 situational builds that each work best in certain situations

Riven really isn't hard to get around playing in a starter level while actually doing something productive for the team.

If you want someone who is of higher skill cap from the get go, pls see Mordekaiser.

You start with somewhat low hp and you lose them with every single damage you deal (shield is weak until some items or levels in) because your auto is genuinely worthless, you have no mobility at all besides your summoner, no cc, you push waves as your core mechanics making you vulnerable to ganks 80% of the laning phase, you can only rek if teamfights happen completely or mostly stationary without much chasing etc etc.

That's a hard to get go champ, Riven is alright.

HP is the only thing to manage. She has low HP regen, so all you have to do is try to not take damage, and/or block as much of it as possible with your shield.

Put it like this; animation canceling is not something I've ever had trouble with. Get used to where the damage happens in the animation, press Q again as the damage happens (ideally just before if you are counting Ping and so on). Practice the timing on minions in a custom game or something.

look up the quick q combo then try to do it. You dont know what im talking about. its not the normal aa, q to cancel aa animation, rinse and repeat. Its aa, q to cancel animation the move click and attack click to cancel q animation then aa again. repeat. so hard to do consistantly

go hard or go home assassin. all damage, all the time. 19 arpen runes so full build i reach 49 flat arpen.


Im probably wrong here but I know for shaco I run AD because flat AD benefits more than armpen because of crit and his e scales with AD but does magic dmg.

Would the same not apply to riven? her shield scales from AD
