is it true that armor penetration is capped at 40%? so that makes getting other arpen than last whisper useless

i've seen top elo players build brutalizer and lw at the same time, r they nubs or arpen isn;t caped?

Armor pen cap? Well, I suppose that it would be however much armor the target has!

There's no hard cap on armor pen, but last whisper, being the only thing that gives percentage armor pen, only gives 40%, so that's a 'soft' cap on percentage penetration.

Other than that, no.

with the new masteries at least % armor penetration caps at 46 you can get 10 % from masteries and 40 % from LW but you can't get the 50% just 46% I still don't know if flat armor caps

Black cleaver and other items stack up armor penetration on hit.
