i think the fact you have magic penetration boots and such, i kinda feel like we should have an armor penetration boot as well because I think it would open up another option for the players who play champs that don't necessarily use attack speed or cdr a lot. i think champs like fiora/riven/zed/talon would consider these because of the utility the boots would have.

The suggestion falls when you understand that either the Armor Pen boots would be stronger than the AS/CDR boots, thus making them a better purchase in every scenario, or they would be equal or weaker, and not worth buying outside of a very few niche builds

Not every item combination needs to exist. The only reason there are MPen boots is likely because they didn't want boots with AP.

And the only reason they didn't want boots with AP was because...

Someone dropped the initial boot designer on the head when he was young? I dunno. Boots need a rework anyways.

Because AP supports and bruisers, I guess. They don't want 'em picking up offensively designed stuff on people like Janna.

I think he meant Armor Pen for AP, not Ability Power. I mean, it only makes sense since... well.. Ability Power hasn't been mentioned in this thread.

Except it has, in literally the first comment.
