Riven vs Taric top

As the title says, who would win? Assuming Taric is going tanky dps.

Taric's armor just rises so outrageously fast that he'll have almost 100 armor by lv 6.
Riven's dmg output is extremely high, but it consists of entirely physical damage.

Who wins the lane? And don't just say I'm trolling by considering the possibility of tanky DPS Taric. (Look at this: http://solomid.net/guides.php?g=26278).


Forgot to add this video earlier. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCcmvC3bGBE. Sure its only one game, but it shows how Taric can actually stand up to Riven quite well.

Riven beats everyone, so Riven wins.

being riven isnt restrained by mana eventually she would be able to chip his health down. That and rushing early last whisper would work wonders.

I'm guessing a farm fest while they both wait for ganks..

The thing is, taric can't kill riven, not really, and so they'll both farm.

farmed riven shreds entire teams....farmed taric, still pretty much stuns one guy and buffs his team.

Taric's burst with his ult and W is pretty high though. The armor debuff also affects his dmg output by a decent amount too. Not to mention Taric has sustain on both his HP and MP.

play malphite, stack armor + rune armor up. Riven deals no damage when you have a ~ 100 armor at lvl 3. plus when late game comes, you dominate as much as riven does, maybe even more so

This is the big problem with the matchup. Riven doesn't have to kill Taric to win the lane.
