A) Is sipjoning strike magical or physical damage. Should I take armor penetration or magic penetration runes?

B) Pretty sure it does but need confirmation: Does it completely stack with sheen/triforce (I.E. Both the + damage and base damage from siphoning strike in the sheen calculation??)

C) And last: Sheen damage buff is it magical or physical?

A) I would think magical, so you would want magic penetration runes.
B)Yes it stacks 100%
C)"+250 Mana +25 Ability Power UNIQUE Passive: 100% chance when an ability is used that your next physical attack deals 100% extra base damage. This effect has a 3 second cooldown."

This would leave me to believe it's physical, same as with triforce, somebody can correct me if I am wrong though.

As far as your runes go, even though siphoning strike is magical, I would rune for armor penetration since sheen/triforce(Again, this can change if I am wrong) are physical, armor penetration also effects your auto attack, magic penetration does not.

A confirmation of the siphoning strike being magic would be nice! I did think so but another confirmation would be nice. Also more comments on the armor penetration or magic penetration part =).

And I should make an armor penetration page anyway, thanks for your answer!

Since Nasus is a DPS champion, he benefits way more from armor pen then from magic pen.
The sheen/triforce bonus is also physical.

I also think that siphon deals magical damage, else the armor reduction of spirit fire would increase the dmg. And afaik it doesn't.
