Released in 2011 just after the end of Season one, Riven has become a very popular champion in game. With her high mobility, crazy damage, and the ability to score pentakills with ease, it’s easy to see why everyone loves Riven.
Riven currently has 8 different skins in game with 3 of them being legacy. To show just how awesome and deadly Riven is we’re looking at her best skins in game. From Battle Bunny Riven to Arcade Riven, there are plenty of skins to choose from, but some are undoubtedly better than others.
To show you which ones are the best, we’ve handpicked our favourites from the Riot vaults.
Here are the best Riven skins in League of Legends.
Released in September 2011 at the end of the season, Crimson Elite Riven was the second skin to celebrate the end of a season without being obtained by reaching Gold or higher.
Currently available in store for 520 RP, this skin deserves a mention in our top Riven skins list due to how awesome it looks. With her highly detailed Noxian Crimson armor and new weapon, the skin really stands out from her other skins. Due to the price, the skin does not contain any new particles, animations or sounds.
Riven also shares the same Crimson Elite theme with Talon, her fellow assassin and partner in crime. If you want a colorful skin that will give you lots of attention in game, then Crimson Elite Riven is an excellent choice.
If you haven't seen this skin in game yet, then you’re clearly not playing enough League of Legends! Released in August 2015, Arcade Riven is based on the highly popular Arcade skin theme.
Riven also shares the same Arcade theme with several other champions including Ahri, Blitzcrank, Sona and Veigar to name a few.
The skin features Riven as a video game character and references the same sword from the video game Kirby’s Return to Dream Land. With a complete cartoon transformation, it’s hard to tell that it’s actually still Riven.
Since its release Arcade Riven has been available in the store for 1350 RP and still is today. Considering the awesome particles and sounds alone, this is definitely a skin you should have in your Riven skin collection.
Released in 2014 to celebrate the Lunar Revel and Chinese New Year, Dragonblade Riven was inspired by a fierce Chinese warrior. In this skin, Riven’s visual appearance has been completely transformed and she now wears Chinese style clothing with a new hairdo.
Her silver hair has been tied up into a massive bun to stop her from accidentally cutting it off as well as several other model changes. Her weapon has also been changed to a new sword that doesn’t look as broken so she can finally stop crying about it. The particles for her abilities have also been changed so that she now fires red flames when using her ultimate.
Riven also shares the same Dragonblade theme with her best assassin bud, Talon.
Originally available in the store for 1350 RP during the Lunar Revel period, since then just like the other Lunar Revel skins, it has since been removed from the store.
Riven is a high mobility champion that spends most of her time jumping around the map over walls and terrain, it only makes sense that Riot would eventually release a bunny related skin. After all, she practically is a bunny rabbit.
Released shortly after April fools on the 6th April 2012, many people initially thought this was a late April fool’s joke, but they were wrong! Inspired by the Playboy Bunny outfit, Riven wears a smart bunny suit with a fluffy tail on the back. She also has a new sword which fires new particles and makes the theme really unique.
Since its release, Battle Bunny Riven has been available in the store for 975 RP and has become very popular in game. Due to its unique style and theme, this skin is definitely one of a kind; it’s unlikely they’ll ever make the same theme for another champion.
When it comes to Riven skins in League of Legends, this skin is undoubtedly the best. Released way back in October 2012 during the Season 2 finals, Championship Riven is one of the most sought after skins in the entire game.
With an entirely new color scheme and armor it’s easy to see why this skin is so popular. After its limited release in 2012 the skin was removed from the store and has not been available ever since.
In 2016 there was a limited release of a new Championship Skin but there was a slight difference to the original. The difference is the original older skin now features a crown while the new one doesn’t.
The new version of the skin was released in September 2016 for a limited time at 975 RP. Since then the new version of the skin has also been removed from the store only increasing the demand for the skin.
