I want to know your feed back on my item build since i just love playing as riven. The items i get are usually a wriggles, merc or iona boots, a frozen mallet, warmogs, last whisp, and finally a phantom dance for an extra umpf. Btw i never really liked a carry riven favored a more tanky approach, so i just want feed back from the build i currently use.

Since Riven is an AD caster, Bloodthirster is a lot better than Phantom Dancer, and you probably want to build it a lot earlier.

I'd replace Last Whisper with Brutalizer/Ghostblade or Hexdrinker/Maw because they provide more overall utility. Warmog's also doesn't seem optimal. Some Randuin's or FoN depending on enemy team comp might be better..

I always build Riven situationally. For example, if I am soloing top against Kennen, I'm going to start boots and rush a hexdrinker, and then get wriggles (or just skip wriggles if I don't need the sustain). Either way my build usually ends up as merc/tabi wriggles, warmogs, atmas, malmortius. This works very consistently for me.

Additionally, if I get really fed early game (i.e. 5 min wriggles), I will get a bloodthirster and a frozen mallet as a replacement for warmogs/atmas and then build situationally from there.

OP if you are going to get FM and warmog, then you must also get atmas and even FoN. other wise you're not maximizing everything...

Id never run tanky items on riven, so much is wasted, same with ghostblade. You mainly want to go boots>Bruitalizer>BT>GA>LW then finish situationally. Most of her durability is from valor, which has a 1:1 scaling with ad, and the GA ensures your not focused. You only want to build tanky after your core items, by taking atmogs, again this is situational.

My build is usually 2-3 BTs, a LW, GA, and boots.
