I see a both pages when I check popular/good AP mid mains, and I'm not sure what to think atm.

Trying to get into the whole "smart runes" thing, since that's kinda needed in higher gold, but I honestly can't tell which would be better.

MR would give you better tankiness vs your lane enemy, but AP/level would give you better scaling in the game for your own damage. How do you judge which to use? ._.

Depends.

Suicide karthus? AP.
Lebonk? AP.
Kennen? Mr/lv.
Morg? Mr/lv.
Zilean? AP.
Cass? Mr.lv.
Annie? AP.

If you need to stay alive a bit longer than average, get the MR. If you just burst enemy team and then die and not give a fk go with AP.

Doesn't make too big of a difference.

Thanks, this is exactly the type of answer I needed to see

always flat mr. the mr will negate more damage than the extra ap will add. it starts out stronger and scales harder. once both people have sorc shoes and 2 dorans the ap difference is pretty minor while the gap between mr is still significant.

the problem with per level is the stats it provides will lose value as the game progresses. what you gain is always going to be relatively less and less with each level. the flat bonus at the start gives you a much larger advantage the first 8 levels or so than the per levels give you after the first 8 levels.

I think depends really the math up, for example a Morgana will not harass you that hard early, but for example against a cass, or a heavy burst champ more MR is never bad

You know lately I have not switched my runes from my support set, arm/mr/gp10, and I have been loving it.
I pik my mastery depending on roll, generally I play tank/off tank/support/bit of ranged AD/AP.
I find I can stay in lane a lot longer early game, it just works real well, Im loving it.
