Tbh, Shen top is a little underrated. Alot of people think its just his ult that matters, get 6 gg whatever. Hes a pretty strong top if you build him right. He can farm, tank damage, etc. I'd also say Shen jungle over Riven, just because to me his ganks are way better. Yes, Riven has alot of CC, but she cant fly out of a bush and gg someone like Shens taunt can. You have to get close enough to stun them, and then knock them up with Riven. Shens banned 95% of the time, Riven isnt.

Riven if your team needs raw damage.

Shen if your team needs tankyiness.

All comes down to team comp. Though head on head, I'd say Riven wins early, then Shen comes back around levels 9-12.

Shen jungle- the taunt gives better ganks
Riven top- more damage, mobility, and still kind of tanky

But just like TeknoWizard said.. it depends what your other teammates pick.
If you have a more squishy burst damage team get shen.
If you have nice tankiness through most of the team go for riven

I personally believe Riven wins every top lane, shen is also a very strong solo top. Shen's jungle is painfully slow, while Riven's jungle is very decent. IMO both belong in the top lane, but jungle is very viable for Riven but somewhat gimmicky for Shen

Riven for both. You will never get shen reliably in a ranked match, lol.

Shen's ganks are ridiculous... and he can tower dive like a boss, then immediately help someone on the opposite side of the map.

I remember one game I had a jungle Shen, and we just kept diving Mordekaiser and getting away alive.

He had to be so mad.
