Title.

I'd prefer if you don't judge me on it. Just give me an answer.

You don't want an explanation? I'll give it anyway...

I don't think that's a good idea. Flat runes will make you benefit early game, but then Ricochet will drain your mana faster if you enable it, and Boomerang Blade is better at killing enemy champions.

+atk would be better...

I'd probably also suggest +atk or +crit chance. The crit chance is better if you go for an early Infinity Edge, and the +atk is better with your Ricochet.

And although this may seem odd, and is a bit off-topic, always get the magic penetration mastery. I go DPS Sivir and still find it invaluable. Finished a game right now, 5-1-15, and dealt the second most magical damage, just behind the enemy poison Singed, and way more than the third in line. You depend on your boomerang a LOT as Sivir.

Why would you get +attack speed runes on sivir? With starks and R you have insane AS anyway. Get armor penetration instead.

Neither.

And to the person who said go 9 into offense tree for 15% magic pen, you're so much better off going 9 into defense for the added dodge and +10% movement. It works so well with her passive.

I would not use attack speed runes at all on Sivir.

The benefit is just too small. You usually get Berserkers and/or Recurve Bow (going for Starks or Last Whisper) quite early in the game, making the runes completely neglectable.

I go for an Ricochet centric build, not leveling Boomerang at all besides for early game harrassment (just too easy to dodge). Going all the way for armor penetration with Marks is good in many ways:

- this is the only rune build to actually make ricochet hit harder, since crit dmg and all other effects do not apply to ricochet, but if your first hit does more dmg (with armor pen is does) also your bounces will do more

- your main goal should be push lanes and destroying towers. Armor pen helps getting towers down faster

- with enough armor pen (I got ~30 through runes and masteries), Starks, Whisper and Black Cleaver, you even make a decent hero killer late game

I see.

This still raises an issue.

Your question WAS actually answered
>Flat runes will make you benefit early game, but then Ricochet will drain your mana faster if you enable it

If you mist go +ASPD then the progressive ones will make your life easier.
