Mostly for last hitting. Also abilities like Tiger Stance or Valor that scale really well with AD without actually dealing physical damage.

ArP is good mainly on champions that like to harass a lot with ranged autoattacks, but even then a mixture of both is usually best.

attack damage is more for early game.

armor penetration is more for late game.

they're both good, but i find the early game AD boost more useful.

AD is better because it scales with abilities. Only on AD champs with bad scalings, you should take ArPen runes.

For AD carries AD runes are better because usually you will buy Last Whisper, rendering flat ArPen useless.

Thing is, arpen is always flat.., which means the more you rune the less effective LW will be.
If you for some reason want to follow my ranked journey to gold, you can do it Here.

I am against asking for rep, only rep me if you think I contributed well or said something wise.

ArP has an impact early game it's not just for late game, for example on a champion like Draven who has an AD steroid giving him "true damage" makes his laning hella strong. Other champions (IMO) like Irelia who have true damage built into their kit can utilize more early game AD. It's "situational" to an extent, but most of the time a rune build's impact is negligible IMO...Noticeable for sure, but choosing between ArP or AD early might almost be considered "preference"

Arpen on champs that reduce enemy armor.

AD on champs that can't.
