Hey I've got a sweet idea for a new champ that combats the rise of AD caster

A character that has a means of reducing armor penetration used on him/ a massive amount of base armor but with terrible magic resist.

He becomes extremely popular as a means of countering most AD casters w/ black cleaver and his lack of magic resist makes AP casters popular because they are the only thing that can counter him.

OR

Maybe he does extra damage to enemies who have armor penetration! 0.o that would be sweet.

I can already think of an anti bruiser ap that "negates" the effects of armor pen by having a shield that takes in true damage.

No. It's ignoring the problem, that people are misinformed about the effects of Penetration compared to other stats.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by a "true damage shield", but this more about armor pen and less about Darius. Even if I hate him.

AP carries just need to be better. Some item buffs will take care of that.

Until then, reports claim that Heimerdinger counters every AD caster mid.

Morde gains a shield when he does damage with spells. Whenever somebody attacks him it removes "health" from his shield. Because his shield takes in true damage armor pen has no effect on him.

My post wasn't about Darius at all.

True damage is not affected by Armor or Magic Resist. Unless you mean that because his Armor is being lowered enough to take true damage, in which case you're still wrong, since without the penetration you would be taking less damage to the shield.
