MR glyphs paired with AP quints makes for an incredibly strong laning phase.
In an even lane you'll win most of the trades just because of them.

I've been thinking mostly that they're great on Cass, but now that I think more about it I realize that they could be potentially gamechanging for others too.
I'm thinking Cass, Swain and MAYBE Kass and Sion. What are you thinking?

I've only been using then on my manaless caster page, and I stomp my lane so often with vlad I am tempted to try it in my standard caster page. It's definately worth it, if you get a good enough early game, they wont have good a late game. And those make you a winner in most exchanges.

Yeap, I run them on several of my mids, as does my friend who plays Kassadin quite exclusively. They work, and they work damn good.

Against every mid that harass you with mostly magical dmg.
On every champ that are susceptible to be harassed.

If you are against a passive player / champ that cant harass you / physical mid, dont.

And if you know you wil trade dmg, ask yourself if some more AP would'nt be better than takking less dmg from magical source.
Also have to check if more AP = more sustain with shield/spell vamp mecanic.

Imo Kass need it because he is a *** before 6, but I would give pure AP to Sion AP **** to see his shield not break (and use his ****ing ap ratio).
Depends a lot of the enemy playstyle, the only thing you cant predict/see from champ selection if not arranged game.

This is pretty cut and dry... MR glyphs for a better early game, ap/lvl for a better late game.

Damn im useful

Thanks to Xiaowiriamu for the sig!

^Well duh.
But consider snowballing too. MR gives so much help in aggressive lanes that you might end up with a better late just because of that.

Sure, it might not work in professional play, but in soloQ it works like a charm because most mid players play really aggressive. And if you win trades because of that you'll win lane too.

And people wonder why I get Chalice on casters. It's a good MR item and it gives MP5.

^But it's still not good on most AP champions in mid..

What i like to do is run mr glyphs and go Sorc Shoes > NLR or WotA >Abyssal on characters like Mordekaiser and Cassio who have pretty high base damage.
Tri lane for life.

Mord should obviously run MR glyphs. He's a tanky AP carry.
