armor or magic resistance?
once a game starts, I can never figure out if I should build towards armor or magic resistance :/

or should i just go with armor (for a tank, for example) regardless?

any help with identifying which heroes use magic and which use physical damage?

are attack skills considered magic or physical (even if it's idk, malphite's ground pound or something)?

yea pretty dumb question I guess.. sorry :/

magic resistance, abilities normally kill u not, autoattacks.

most abilities dish out magic damage so if you're dying to nukers most then go magic resist, or auto attackers most then go more armour

Obviously it would depend. What's on the opposing team? Lots of spellcasters = Magic Resistance and a Banshee's Veil. Lots of Physical DPSers = Armor, probably including either Thornmail/Guardian Angel. If you're Rammus, Armor would be the main choice, but if you were say Alistar, the focus would be completely elsewhere, on HP.

Yar, look at their team comp.

I was playing as Mordekaiser yesterday and had their entire team dump their ultimates on me.
I survived and almost made it from their second turret to my first turret in the lane.
I had a force of nature and mercury's treads, and thats it for magic resist.
