Why does she seem tanky from the perspective of the player fighting her, when she built full glass cannon?

Honestly?
The hardest match up Riven has in my experience is AP Nasus. You can't react to his AoE magic attack with your E because its instant and it does DEEPS if you stack AP. Just throw it out when she comes in to CS and and at her tower and she won't be able to sustain forever early game. But if your running AP Nasus, you're team is probably raging at you by now for your build although you should win against Riven with that build.

Edit: Also you can beat a ton of baddy Rivens and Rofl stomp them with Kennen, GP, Garen, Renekton and a bunch of other champions.

Could be the player's rune and mastery setups. They do factor in a lot as well for early game armor and magic resistance. Thats the biggest factor. The other factor is that if done correctly her E should mitigate a lot of damage. Mid-Late game when shes stacking blood thirsters, she is getting back like 600 hp(or something ridiculous) per auto attack with her ult on. So as long as shes auto attacking something, she wont die. I have 4v1'ed before with a full glass canon build(3 Bts, etc etc) and have gotten a quadra kill.
Hard CC + burst will shut it down though. Very similar to Master Yi in the sense that without hard CC he will probably destroy your team late game. Only difference here is that Riven will do way more damage faster and has better mobility options.

I've been trying to play Riven but I just can't get the hang of it... I don't know specifically what I struggle with, but I love her playstyle and just am not being met with success.
What do?

Biggest question. What runes do you run and whats your build order?

Then I build a couple dorans blades before brutalizer and then a bloodthirster to a last whisper usually.

All the armor pen you need early game will come from masteries. You don't need armor pen runes and especially move speed quints. Get flat AD Runes.
I run straight flat AD runes and blue cool downs. The yellow armor is fine I guess but I prefer that to be more flat AD. Replace your blues with cool down blues.
You never need to build last whisperer unless their stacking armor.

Ha, Plinkett Reviews.

I don't really have a question, but it is unfortunate that you made this thread today. I am about to post a Riven guide here, haha.
