I'm curious as to why the amount of Magic Resistance given by Runic Bulwark and the amount taken away by Abyssal Scepter are not equal. It feels like building Abyssal Scepter isn't worth it since once fully made, Runic Bulwark will fully negate the MR reduction of Abyssal Scepter.

Was this overlooked or was it kept like this for balancing issues?

Abyssal Scepter is a hyrbridized offensive and defensive item, offering a large chunk of magic resistance in addition to ability power and what is more or less magic penetration. Abyssal Scepter doesn't even negate the magic resistance offered by Abyssal Scepter.

Runic Bulwark on the other hand is a purely defensive item, as opposed to a hybrid of defense and offense. It's also more expensive.
