I've always thought of jungling riven, but everyone's always either said "afk fool" "i'm gonna dodge" or something close to that when i mentioned jungling her. I wanna know if she's viable and actually a great jungler or if i should just stick to solo topping her?

haven't really found a great guide or video commentary on her jungling which is why i'm posting this here. please link me if you know of some! thanks!

viable but has trouple sustaining with vamp until level 3 or f4 (depends on masteries and runes) very good ganks but not the fastest clearer. can't solo dragon early. needs to get a couple of ganks early for items. riven needs a lot of ad to jungle effectively and losing the bt for wriggle hurts but it's def possible. if you like riven jungle try lee whose much better

I tried jungle Riven for quite a while and so does my friend. What I can surely say is that she has to really get kills early game.

4/0/0 Riven is 5 times better than a 1/0/5 Riven. Always try to get kills as much as possible and be aggressive when ganking. Always max R>Q>W>E first. And build HoG if you're failing hard.

Keep these in mind and she's really viable.

Riven is a do or die jungler. You've got to get early aggression going and get successful ganks and you'll be able to carry your team to a win.

I feel she's a strong solo que ranked pick in low elo because there people give up after first blood and being a strong, early aggression jungler is good for morale.

Basically, she's viable and does well in jungle, if anybody says she isn't a viable jungle (I've had them say that to me too) just go 9/1/6 and shut them up.

She does pretty well in the jungle at lower elos. I have an 83% ranked riven and I would say I jungled instead of top 90% of the time.
