What is better for runes, Magic Pen, or raw AP?

I'd actually say magic pen. His missiles do an insane amount of damage early on with MP reds and quints, and they help scale into late game, too.

I'm not saying Pain is wrong. But I run 14 magic pen, and there's very little that can compare to that harassment.

It's a tough decision... if you are going with Missiles as your primary damage output (which in my opinion is better) you should go with the magic pen. His turrets right now aren't affected by Mpen but scale with AP.

IMO just go with Mpen, or Mpen and a little flat Ap since the Mpen will be much more effective late game.

AP is going to be more helpful with your early game, but Pen is going to be better long term. Heimer is not a burst you down type champ so the AP is actually less useful than a AP champ like LeBlanc, that relies on burst.

Early game for Heimer is more about farming and lane control with his turrets.
