Why Are Riven And Rumble's Shields Much Worse Than Most Other Shields?

Azir, Riven, Rumble, Sona (and Yasuo but we won't talk about him), all have completely garbage shields. Sona heals, so it's really hard to make a good judgement on there, Azir is ranged so perhaps his weak shield is also justifiable. Why do Riven and Rumble get completely gimped however? Some of these shields are extremely powerful on champions who don't even need it, yet squishy melee champions like Riven and Rumble are forced to hold the weakest shields in the game. Before you call Riven's shield "over powered" take a look at some of these other shields that exist in League of Legends. Riven's shield is bad (for you haters out there), you simply don't realize it because it gives her a dash (which helps her move to safety). Nearly every last other shield in the game actually lasts longer or shields more than Riven's / Rumble's. Diana's Shield * Able to increase in strength (almost double). * Lasts 5 Seconds.
