one of the things that a lot of people tend to do when comparing the two stats is assume that anyone that takes armor pen marks/quints will have 0% chance to crit. that isn't the case.

we're comparing starting with an extra 29 armor pen versus an extra 14% crit chance.
we're not comparing 29 armor pen and 0 crit versus 14% crit chance and 0 armor pen.

not that it changes your example by too much, but rng affects an armor pen build too.

Well the thread was about ArPen runes OR Crit runes, not ArPen+Crit runes.

Unless you're taking into account the measly 2% crit from masteries.
