Ok, so before anybody flames me for this... I feel like tanks are very hard to kill late game. There's Magic Pen Boots, so why not make armor pen boots?? I think it wouldn't be imba, it would make the game more balanced. I mean there's only like 4 armor pen items in the game and you lose a ton of dps if you just get those items. Any feedback?

No. Last Whisper rapes the ********* out of tanks already. In fact, last whisper needs a god**** nerf if I do say so myself.

I don't think there is any reason to have Armor Pen Boots. There are plenty of items that can help take out tanks late game. Compared to the amount of other Armor Pen items, i don't think a tiny amount of armor pen coming from a pair of boots is going to make much of a difference. You just need to invest in getting either a Madred's Bloodrazer (for physical a physical DPS champ) or a Deathfire Grasp (if you're a mage or AP champ). those items can really help take down that tank if you need to.

I think you're over reacting there just a bit pal. Sure Last Whisper gives good Armor Pen, but in no way is it anywhere near broken. It's a cheap means of helping get a bit through someone who is stacking far too much armor. If Last Whisper is REALLY doing that big of a number on you, you're either:

1) Completely ignoring the other items that champion is carrying that might also be a reason for why you're dying so fast (Black Cleaver, IE, Madred's, etc.)

2) Stacking far too much armor for your own good (instead of getting a bit of HP as well), and as such, indirectly increasing the effectiveness of Last Whisper.

3) Not realizing that your death is actually coming from magic damage instead of physical damage (which should be fairly obvious, so i'll rule this out in your case).

OR

4) Being way too reckless, and blaming an item instead of yourself (which i'm NOT saying this is true, i just know that some people out there are known to do this).

Good points, but why are there magic pen boots?? There's plenty of magic penetration items like void staff is equivalent to last whisper (even though it may be a little bit more expensive).

Magic Pen:

Sorc Boots
Guise
Void Staff
Runes + 15% masteries

Armor Pen

Black Cleaver (12 per hit stacking to 60)
Last Whisper
SoTD (proc)
Brutalizer
Runes + 6 masteries (more with runes than magic pen)

This is why there are no armor pen boots...there is enough armor pen in the game already

There are already enough armor penetration items in the game. Enough that if you really wanted to you could reduce almost everyone in the game to zero armor. Why would you need any more than that? Adding another cheap early armor penetration armor would make people go back to not even bothering and just stacking health again.

There are simply less items that penetrate magic resist. Boots happen to be one of the 4.
