So for my DPS build is it better to take flat health quints or flat armor pen?

More details? Champion? Build?
You generally want to get as much ArPen as you can, but lower than their armor, since otherwise it's waste. At lvl 1 it would be ~30ArPen, but if you are going straight for Brutalizer, you may need to count.

You can and should use hp quints on almost every champion you play. 100 hp at level one is hard to give up.

When I play a ranged carry, I go for armor pen.

Melee carry, I go for health.

It is generally safer to go with HP quints.

but if you have a champion with a ranged spell that does PHYSICAL damage, (Ezreal, Gangplank, Pantheon), you can harass from a distance. If you go full ArPen/MPen quints+marks, get a doran's item. It skyrockets your laning/harass ability to godly.

Health quint is good until around level......maybe 8 or so (forgot)
ArPen is good for later.
So.......
It depends, I dont know the answer either. But the suggestion about ranged or melee is a good consideration.

Do you get hit alot early game? Buy HP Quints.

Do you rape face without getting touched? Buy Armor Pen.
