Never go crit dmg.

Armor pen is great for early game and still pretty **** good later on. Crit is excellent all the way through. Seems to just be a personal preference. Do you like consistent dmg or spiking?

Consistent dmg I guess would be nice instead of hoping for a good spike every now and then. Thanks for the help guys.

On the average armor pen will give you more damage. But crit chance can make your damage more unpredictable which makes it harder to determine when to run and when to fight for the enemy. That is the tradeoff.

Also, never get crit damage unless you are Shaco.

armor pen works mostly for every dps

So best bet should go armor pen and crit chance with TF I assume?

You should probably just stick with armor pen.

Crit Damage deals less damage then armor pen even if you have 100% crit rate.

Well, I stand corrected then. Never get crit damage unless you have 10000000 armor pen and you are Shaco.

P.S. Is this analyzed on a per unit basis or a per rune basis (i.e. is this still true given crit damage runes provide X % more damage and penetration give Y pen, if not damage could be better rune-wise)
