I have purchased 4x t2 Mark of Strength, each of which is supposed to give me +.25 AD. However, when I place all four in my runebook, the totals column on the side only says +.98 AD.

So, according to Riot, .25*4 = .98

Anyone care to explain this discrepancy to me?

...why? Are +.25 damage runes actually +.24566666666 damage runes? What purpose does that serve?!

Are there diminishing returns on stacking runes of the same type that I don't know about?

We're excellent at math. That extra 0.00434 points of Attack Damage would just be too powerful, sorry.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

But seriously, is it like diminishing returns or something?

This makes me slightly angry, because now I have to change an additional Magic Pen rune out for an AD rune to allow me to get Akali's Passive up at level 1.

Well, you see, I personally would prefer the extra health and minor lifesteal that is granted by Doran's blade, and since I already have the +3 damage from masteries, I figure that I only need one more point of damage that I could get from runes to allow me to have the passive at level 1 with Doran's Blade.

OP makes a good point, though.
