Since Riot is going to be making changes to the armor/magic penetration system (% will come before flat), I'm left wondering if the idea of releasing ArPen/MPen per level marks and quints would be a good idea, or perhaps the inclusion of %-based penetration runes.

"How would these be good?"

They would give you better ability to deal your full damage later in the game. Say you're Ezreal, and you want Mystic Shot to deal tons-of-damage late-game, but Last Whisper just isn't enough. Add on some % ArPen marks and/or quints, and you'll bypass even more armor in the late game (at a cost of poor penetration and no bonus AD in the early game).

Or say you're Xerath. Flat MPen runes aren't that good on him because he typically wants Ionian Boots of Lucidity, not Sorcerer's Shoes. %-based MPen would make your late-game piercing power with Locus of Power so devastating; no amount of MR would protect your enemies.

So what do you guys think? Good idea or bad idea?
