Treads, Vanguard/Hood if needed.
Diffusal as core dps.
Levels are also very important, don't worry so much bout items

Diffusal is main damage, Manta and/or Butter as luxury. Manta can let you mind games if you want (your images are invisible as well), Butter = DPS + defense. Get PT and Bracers for HP, or if you really want the HP, get a Vanguard I guess...

Seriously Vanguard and Vlads? Those are both retarded.

Treads, Diffusal, Manta, Butterfly. Usually in that order. Your first big item should almost always be diffusal. Get some combo of PMS/Wand/Bottle/Wraith early on depending on the circumstances.

Don't get Vangaurd or Hood or other defensive shit, his smoke screen is all a good player will need. He isn't played like fucking Viper or Razor.

Just as already said, get diffusal.
It's so fucking strong on riki. Smoke+Diffu is almost a sure kill, diffu boosts dmg and makes sure no one escapes.
It's also defensive, got dusted? Blast it with piss Purge.
Same goes for manta, nice damage, really confusing for the opponents since they have feedback and the backstab animation (sadly no dmg), split image also removes dust.
End up with Butterfly and maybe even MKB or Buriza.

definately diff. Smoke+Purge is pretty effective.

Manta is also pretty good, +movement spd, high agi gain, decent hp/mana gain as well. Pretty much what sa needs.

And of course some warith bands for ur early kills.

I also get HotD when I think my damage/attk spd is high enough.

Usual start (gg branches, tangoes, salve, quelling blade) - I also buy a magic stick and I make wand later (depends on your own playstyle). Buy 1 or 2 wraith bands for early dmg and boots. After that I try to get diffusal as fast as possible. Power Treads after that (you can make them before diffusal too).

Midgame: 2x Wraith Band, Wand, Treads, Diffusal, TP
After those items it depends on the line-up and how you are doin'. Possibile afterwards:
Butterfly, Manta, Basher, Linkens, Buriza

For more information: Guides!

This will probably shortly get moved into the "Game Strategy" forum where it belongs. I suggest you to consider the forum before posting. Anyways a much better way of finding a viable build is from one of the guides here.

Diffu and Manta for me. Unless I get something like godlike in the 15th minute and then go for Rapier because it's obvious I'm playing against retards.

urn is the greatest item on riki, its more important than diffusal
ganking, healing, mind games/juking, good for extra damage too, in team fights you always get low from aoe lets you just come back to the fight. It solves so many problems riki has.

treads > urn > who the hell cares its gg by now due to awesome urn powers
