I only play AP Mid champions and I'm unsure of what runes to buy. I was thinking all Scaling AP runes, but that seems kind of stupid when I thought abou it. My most played champions would probably be Katarina and Anivia.

Thanks.

And the ms quints sound odd, but if your facing a skillshot champ like ahri, zigs they come in handy sense no one really starts boots anymore

AP quints, magic pen reds, scaling mana regen yellows, scaling or flat ap blues.
I use this on all ap mids but it was originally made for Lux.

Explaination: Mid is my second best role, I specialize in it. Jungling is my first, and I have just as many pages for it.

You want to win your lane and win it hard. You can buy most stats in the game, but you cannot buy gold from winning your lane. This is why I have so many pages. Generally I will use the last one in blind pick because I don't know who I'm going against.

As far as Ability Power Vs. Magic Pen, it depends on the champion/your personal preference. Magic Pen doesn't help you do damage to minions and can make it slightly harder to clear waves. I've gotten accustomed to clearing waves without Ability Power Runes and I take Magic Pen instead, unless its a champion like LeBlanc or AP Tristana who scale so well with ABP and are early game champions. Either way, both are completely viable.

Some people like mana regen runes, and I get why. Here's the deal: Mana regen doesn't deal damage. Those running mana regen Vs me in lane almost always fail because I can take 2/3 more hits from their spells than they can of mine.

Also I usually run Doran's/Teleport mid so even if they do wittle me down, I'll just teleport back to lane with full mana and another Doran's to double the effectiveness of my MR.

For Katarina I would get Scaling Health/level runes as health is ever so helpful with her damage reduction. Anivia would work well with any above.

Don't get Hybrid, all of Kat's Spells do magic damage and she rarely auto attacks except when last hitting, and I find she last hits fine AND Armor pen doesn't help you last hit as minions do not have any resistances.

For Seals, grab either Armor or Health per level.

I've found that Scaling Magic Resist Glyphs are good for your blues. You can also swap out flat MR or Ability Power per lvl. All preference.

Quints go flat AP. Only way to go, imo.

Hope this post helps you out
