Rune Choices
After researching my rune choices, I have come to a general decision about them. They are much more important at champ level 1 than they are at champ level 18. As you buy items with gold, your rune stats begin to diminish until they are only a small fraction of your power -- even if you chose the ones that scale with champ lvl.

I conclude from this that I ALWAYS want the non-scaling runes to give me the advantage early. A full book of Greater Mark of Strength gives me 8.55 AD at lvl 1 while that of Greater Mark of Force gives me 0.9 AD.

Is my conclusion wrong? Am I missing something? Thanks for feedback =)

I prefer early game damage over late. But my arpen and magic pen carries into late.

flat is usually better than scaling runes, yes

If the scaling becomes equal to or greater than the flats by level 6 then I buy the Scaling runes.

I do a little mix and match of early and late with a balance of flat damage and penetration. So far I am doing this for my generic AD page (Well since I use AD champs more than AP. Too lazy to work on it for now). I use 6 ArPen and 3 Flat AD Reds with 3 Flat AD Quints. For what I plan for my AP is 9 MPen Reds with 1 MPen and 2 Flat AP Quints.
