In quints, yes.

I prefer armour in yellows for better trading and fighting.

Does it depend on support most people seem use movement quints on taric is that not better?

All depends on the support you playing.

Playing soraka you say? get gold on both of dem runes, you're not supposed to take aaahaany damage at all.


Playing alistair roaming all-day erryday? MS quints and Armour seals, MS sooo awesome and armour almost a must if you want to do anything.

I always run g/10 quints, sometimes I run g/10 yellows. I have rune pages set to either armor yellows or g/10 yellows and I choose based on my laning partner. If i have a strong laning partner like Miss Fortune or Graves I usually feel comfortable taking g/10 yellows. This also applies if the enemy has a weak laner like Ashe. If I feel the lane is roughly even or in the enemy favor, I take armor yellows
Thanks for the Signature MissMaw!

I tend to take gold quints and get phil stone as lulu when going for support/hybrid roles. with the 2 gold from mastery to go with it, your getting double the gold naturally from other players, and counts as having an extra 3 minion kills every miniute, it does a lot to help keep your equipment to a better standard, especially since thanks to whimsy, you got +35% movement on demand anyway as well as a huge plethora of slows. So IMO it comes down to the support in question.

More gold = more wards. I've been running gold seals+quints for a while and replaced my marks with armor.

This is also my "general" support page as I don't have the runepage space to make many specific ones.

EDIT: I also use the gold seals on my manaless caster page. It's real funny to be about 3-400 gold over their mid lane just because I'm good at last hitting. Also, Mercenary on Katarina is just funny. :P

They are pretty much a must on most Supports in from of quints. Seals are nice to have but I would only take them if you want to play very passiv in lane. You can use MV quints but outside from 5 man premades its not worth it.

Pretty much this. I haven't had the chance to try gp10 seals, but most of the time I don't think they're worth it unless you know you're in for a really passive lane.

Gp10 quints are fantastic though.
Thanks to Minho for the sig!
