[Top 3] TFT Best Riven Builds That Are Powerful

The broken sword shall rise once more. Riven is in TFT with her broken sword, and funny enough, she can break enemies’ hearts as well. Riven is a really strong choice in TFT, as she uses many of her skills.

Riven is a strong frontliner as she has three traits that make her powerful: the Anima Squad, Defender, and Brawler.

This is a comprehensive guide to placing Riven in TFT to ensure you win your games and finish first with your sword.


You ar​e beyond redemption!

Riven is a strong choice, as her traits make her a beast on your board. The Anima Squad trait makes her gain additional health, along with the Brawler trait, which increases her maximum health by a percentage.

Best comps for Riven



  • 6 Brawler
  • 2 A.D.M.I.N.
  • 2 Defender
  • 2 Aegis

This is a mid-fast reroll to level 8, so make sure to get everyone on your board to level 3 as most of them cost 2-3 gold, except for Soraka, Sejuani, and Ekko, which you should get to level 2 at least.

This comp revolves around the A.D.M.I.N. trait and the Brawler trait, which both would give you a huge advantage along with the other active traits such as the Aegis.

Best team for this comp:

1-Jax would be the main damage dealer on your team, sharing the Brawler trait, which would give him tonnes of extra health.

2-Riven would be the second damage dealer if equipped with damage items, or a massive tank if equipped with defensive items.

3-Soraka would deal a lot of damage because she shares the Heart trait from the backlines and activates the ADMIN trait.

4-Lee Sin would be sharing the "heart" and "brawler" traits, which is a great benefit for your team.

5-Vi would be sharing the brawler and aegis traits.

6-Sejuani is a huge frontline, as she is one of the best tanks in TFT as she shares the Brawler trait.

7-Ekko would shield himself, which would make him able to sustain more damage while also sharing the Aegis trait.

8-Blitzcrank is a good frontline activator of the Brawler trait.



  • 3 Prankester
  • 5 Anima Squad
  • 2 Mascot
  • 2 Aegis
  • 1 Ace

The Anima Squad trait serves as the competition's primary trait, with supporting traits like Aegis, Prankester, and Mascot.

Since most of the champions are higher than 3 gold, this is a slow-fast reroll to level 8, but don't forget to get Jinx and Nasus to 3 stars.

Best group to create this:

1-As a member of the Anima Squad, which provides her with additional health, and the Ace, which causes her to kill adversaries, Miss Fortune will deal the majority of your damage.

2-Jinx deals a lot of damage from the back lines as a member of Anima Squad and Prankester.

3-In the back lines, Vayne would be a wise choice because she can aid the Anima Squad and deals substantial damage.

4-Zoe would set foes on flames with his trait "Prankster."

5-Ekko would complete the set of three Pranksters and, because he self-shields, he would be a fantastic frontliner with increased damage resistance.

6-Because he possesses the Mascot and Aegis qualities, which provide your squad high utilisation, Alistar is a necessity.

7-The fourth person in the Anima Squad is named Riven. She would be a tremendous frontliner, do a lot of damage, and be a great choice.

8- Nasus would result in your Anima Squad being set to 5 and your Mascots being set to 2, which is extremely advantageous for your team.



  • 3 Prankester
  • 5 Anima Squad
  • 2 Mascot
  • 2 Aegis
  • 1 Ace

The Anima Squad feature, which provides your team with a lot of damage that accumulates over time, is the foundation of this team.

Miss Fortune would be a true beast in the late game when she had a lot of stacked damage to do damage.

If you have more than 50 gold, this combo automatically rerolls to level 8 to ensure that everyone with less than 4 gold reaches level 3.

The ideal group to create this is:

1-Miss Fortune can deal damage regardless of the AP equipment she employs because she has the Ace trait enabled and the Anima Squad trait shared.

2-Ekko is a capable summoner and tank who possesses the characteristics Aegis and Prankster. He is a formidable frontliner.

3-Alistar plays a crucial role in your front line. He shares your team's mascot, Ox Force, and Aegis.

4-Nasus is another Anima Squad member who can withstand a lot of punishment while serving as a mascot in combat.

5-Jinx and her pal Ekko share the prankster personality feature, which means they both enjoy making fun of other people.

6-One of the Anima Squad's most potent members is Riven. She possesses the brawler feature, making her a large beast who can do harm and survive in the thick of battle.

7-By giving the squad the Prankster trait and utilising his third passive, which stuns foes that kill practise dummies, Zoe can burn adversaries on fire.

8-Sylas would be a tremendous tank on the front lines because his skill heals, and it gets stronger as more ability power is added by the Anima Squad.
