I have heard devastating blow deals magic damage. The skill itself does not say this in the description. If this is true it would seem armor pen does nothing for poppy's main nuke and magic pen is more appropriate. was this used to be magic damage and got changed to attack damage? ideas?

Don't bother with anything but a tank build or Attack speed build. I've tried both and Attack speed (ASP for short) is a far better build.

Start out the game with. Cloth armor and 3x healing potions.
Next get Madreds Razers + Boots of speed.
next a Vampire scepter (Make this into starks fervor if the game won't last long)
Berserkers greaves / ninja tabi (I prefer tabi for the piss off factor)
Madres blood razor, Pickaxe -> Recurve Bow -> Madreds blood razer
And finally 2x Phantom dancer. (Build Two Zeal before the actually Phantom Dancers)

Most games I play with this build I win, and I never see more than a zeal.

With this I've gone 12kills 1 death, 7 kills 1 death, 8 kill 2 deaths. All sorts of great things come from this.

The skill order is, Ult > Paragon of (dementia?) > Launch spell > Devastate

Hope this helps, small guide is small =)

It is magic damage and you fail as a poppy if you don't buy sheen(like the other person is suggesting).

I never once suggested a sheen, sheen is the bane of my existence, with poppy that is.

Silly grammar mistakes.

of course I buy sheen...are you trying to say that sheen's damage is physical?

the question is : armor pen, is it helpful on devastating blow...

Magic damage =/= Phys damage, You would want magic pen for that, and magic pen is awful on poppy.

That is what I am saying. You are not suggesting sheen, which is fail on your part.
