How To Counter Riven?

The hardest Riven counter is to avoid engaging her in a 1v1 as she typically deals more damage than other champions. Also, her crowd control abilities render most champions incapable of effectively trading with Riven.

To counter Riven, build some armor early game. This counteracts her high damage output. Also, champions with snares and stuns are good for dealing with Riven’s mobility.

The best way to beat Riven in lane is to harass and poke her without taking too much damage from her. A ranged champion is good for this task. Once she’s vulnerable, you can all in and defeat her. It’s a good idea to call for a gank from your jungle to help.
