Armor Pen Runes still the way to go?

I used to play LoL quite a bit several months ago, but haven't played anytime soon. Back then it was nearly universally agreed that Armor Pen Runes gave AD champs more umph than just about any other Physical DPS stat. Is that still the case? Thanks in advance for any tips.

Yes they're still viable. I don't know what was the common runesets back when you we playing months ago, but today's basic runesets for AD champs is:

Armor pen Reds
Mana Regen/lvl Yellows
Flat CDR Blues
Flat Health Quint.

Now there may be some champs that goes off better with different runes, but this set is effective for most AD champs.
