if you rally haven't started playing, save your IP to unlock a decent champion that you really like and wait for lvl20 to unlock runes. GL.


As requested to GMD himself.

Step 1: Get lvl 20 :P
Step 2: Have a lot of IP :P
Step 3: Create basic rune pages if you play a lot of champions, or create specific runepages when you play 2 or 3 champs.

I play a lot of different champions.
So I have runepages like this:
* Attack damage (Yes, you might want to replace the seals with armor :D)
* Ability power
* Tank
* Support (Yes, you might change the mana regen to magic penetration :P)
Change is gooooood

For runes, I recommend AD marks, AD quints, flat armor seals, and flat armor glyphs.

They can work well for every champion. Even mid and support. Mid for farming/harassing potential and support for harassing potential.

Good luck saving your IP, I remember that when I had reached lv20 I had over 12k IP and all blew it on runes, lol.

As for support rune suggestions, I would say it depends on the type of support.

A traditional heal and buff support like Soraka can use:
Armour Marks
Flat Armour Seals
Flat MR Glyphs
GP/s Quints

However for the poke heavy supports or if you spam spell way too often without decent mana sustain, such as Nidalee and Lulu, you may consider:
Magic penetration/Armour Marks
Flat Armour Seals
Mana regen Glyphs
GP/s Quints

However most of the time it doesn't really matter as I only have two pages anyway (and I play support a lot), one for generic AD and one for generic AP. If you really want to buy an additional page for support you're better off waiting for an unlikely rune page sale, as spending IP on rune pages is kinda wasteful.

The runes you linked are really weird and make you really squishy.

Standard support runes are, like someone has already mentioned: Flat Armor Marks, Flat Armor Seals, Flat MR Glyphs and GP/10 Quints. They work on a lot of supports, not just "heal and buff supports like Soraka".
