Poppy AP AD Question
 
Yo!

I'm currently a Karma, Poppy, and Alistar kinda dude. I have my CD reduction spec'd at 13.45% and my attack speed +21. This question really only concerns poppy. I have all 29 of my mastery points in offense. This includes +10% armor penetration and +10 magic penetration. Since poppy can both be spec'd AP and AD. My question is in the later game can poppy use both Magic Damage and Attack Damage together to hit even harder? I'm pretty sure this is an obvious question and the answer is yes...but just wanted to know!

Thanks

Poppy isn't very effective when built with hybrid items.

AP Poppy doesn't really want AD stuff since she's built around extreme burst. AD Poppy doesn't want AP stuff since she's building for sustained damage. Trying to build for both will leave you weaker on the whole (having meh burst and meh sustained damage is not as good as excelling at one or the other).

AD Poppy does benefit pretty nicely from having the magic pen mastery though, because all the damage from her Q (inculding the autoattack that triggered it, sheen procs, etc) is converted into magic damage.
