Are pure attack damage runes worthless?

Just wondering if I should throw them into the rune combiner and hope for something better.
















(I have 9 crit damage runes that I am using, the 9 AD ones are just sitting there. I've tried swapping them out with different champions and just have not found a champion that does better with them over the crit damage ones.)

Yes, they're horrible. Armor penetration is pretty much the only way to go.

I honestly could not think of a place where AD runes would excel over anything else in realistic situations.

AD Runes are like STDs.

If you have them, you wish you didn't

If you don't have them, you hope it stays that way.

Katarina.

...though Magic Pen runes are still better.

Hmmm I do not have her unlocked, might give her a try.



Honestly if the runes work with a champion or two I would prefer to keep all 9. Throwing them into the combiner is a gamble that I doubt is going to pay off :P

Gangplank with crits build + crits. Damage rune = See you at spawn

I use AD runes to get Akali's passive going from the start. That's all I use them for.

Yeah, you're killed so quickly because your runes are AD and not HP.
