Don't worry, there's very little Magic Resist in the game, so you don't really need quite as much penetration.

So. 40% + 30 magic pen. 200 mr. 120 Mr, 90 MR. Still at 40% reduction. That 200 dmg ability now only does 120. (That person most likely has 2500 health at least, now with this League of Health)

AP Champs are really just a big fat waste of space. All AD teams, with Black Cleaver is the way to go now.

Then if they have 100 mr, they're dropped to 60, then down to 30

Magic damage is more scarce, MR is harder to come by (ranged champs have 30, thats it, most melee have 52.5 at lvl 18 while armor is usually around 80 base)(Items with MR have MUCH smaller amounts than armor and are bought for the MR mostly, whereas armor items have other strong bonuses - HP, AS Slow, ect.), And armor penetration has to be more plentiful with the amount of armor items available that are much better itemized towards overall survival (because of the vast amount of physical damage sources compared to magic dmg such as minions, jungle, towers, autoattacks).

A voidstaff IS a tier 3 item. It increases mage damage as much or MORE than a Rabadons would it most situations, and also works together extremely well with flat penetration.

With Mpen marks, boots and a void staff, a 120 MR target is brought down to 49 MR. An 80 MR target... 25. Throw in a haunting guise and that 80 MR isnt helping them anymore, and the 120 MR is now a squishy.

Getting 200 MR is damn near impossible right now, unless of course you give up an insane amount of other stats for it. 100 is more reasonable, but add in the Marks for 22 MR. 22. From 100.
