Curious about runes, masteries and skill builds in particular, especially for these champions:

Sion
Annie
Kassadin
Akali

I've saved quite a lump some of IP, and I would like to try to acquaint myself with more magic based champions.

Which runes / masteries are best? mp5 / mpen / flat ap / scaling ap?

Thanks in advance.

Regardless of the champion, if you're going Hybrid then Rageblade is a must

MPen marks and quints
MP5/lvl Seals and glyphs

for all of them except Akali, unless you've got tons of IP sitting around, then flat health quint.

I think except for Akali, all of those champs are better off as pure AP (Sion can go AD/AS, but it doesn't shine as early as AP)

Annie doesn't auto-attack enough to matter
Kassadin doesn't have enough HP to really use the attack speed bonus from rageblade.

So Mpen is better than straight AP? I know for physical, crit chance / armor pen runes / attack speed runes are all interchangeable by character, but is Mpen just generally better than AP assassin / casters?

magic pen runes are more effective damage wise then ap runes, and generally speaking the same is true for armor penetration for physical damage characters. For AP sion for example, i liked magic pen marks and quints, mana regen per level seals and cooldown reduction for blues. and while i feel like sion is better straight AP/magic pen build early game, if the game stretchs on hybridizing the build with a rageblade and hextech gunblade are good ways to increase his overall effectiveness.

Depends on their native abilities

- hybrid Kayle would get Rageblade due to her passive feeding off both stats
- hybrid Janna would get Nashors because her shield gives +damage so she would want attackspeed to multiply that if she shields herself
- hybrid Kassadin would get Manamune but he dies too easy so just get AP

For true hybrids, I would say get armor pen marks because spell pen is easily available on boots. I like mp5/level yellows and cdr blues in general but again it's hero specific. What's not hero specific: +33 health purps.
