Offensive runes favour AP?

I'm only just starting to get to the stage where rune investement is worth it. Looking at my options, it seems that and AP rune page has the ability to be more offensive through AP + magic pen. but an AD rune page can only choose between AD or armour pen. Do most AP characters go for both of these or put on Magic resist?

Cheers

AD carries generally run either armor pen or flat AD reds and flat AD quints

AP carries generally run magic pen reds and flat AP quints, they sometimes run scaling AP blues or yellows

I'm not really sure what you're asking

Yeah sorry it's a bit unclear looking back.

I'm asking whether an standard (non-support) AP champ uses both it's reds and blues for offense (as opposed to blues for magic resist) where an AD champ has no choice and can only use reds for offense.

I don't think it's offensive at all. They're just runes.

you generally run flat mr blues and then you run mana regen yellows or ap per level yellows depending on how your champions mana issues are

Assuming I'm against another AP, I typically take flat MR blues. It ends up helping me trade more favorable than AP would in most matchups. (They, however, do nothing against Talon/Panth. Watch out for Talon/Panth.)
