Only two viable items in the game right now that offer mpen are Void Staff and Sorc boots.
It's ****ing ridiculous how many items offer armor penetration by comparison... This amazes me even more since by the time someone has 70%+ crit, they don't even really need armor penetration to deal damage.

That's messed up.

Abyssal is pretty useless for ranged AP champions now... The only reason to buy it would be if you wanted the MR.

Yes, Haunting Guise is good. Until late game when it's not very efficient.

Um....if you're talking about current, there are actually LESS items that give armor penetration. You have Last Whisper, and Brutalizer. Most people don't even talk about the Ghostblade.

Haunting Guise is getting an upgrade, but it was always totally viable.
Abyssal was OP before they nerfed it, and it's still great.

Unless it is calculated differently, armor pen runes are much stronger. Most AD champions in the game can get by without armor pen if they build for crit. Spells don't crit. They don't do **** if the entire enemy team has 130+ MR and health to boot.

Armor pen runes have to be stronger because all charactes gain armor per level. Few gain mr per level. And armor is also cheaper when you itemize for it. It isnt unfair, not at all.
