My current mage rune page consists of flat AP quints and glyphs, mana reg/level seals and MP marks. Should I remove my glyphs for AP/level instead so I can get higher burst starting at level 8 or should I go for flat AP for the great early game burst?
Edit: My main AP mids are Ahri and Fizz, and occasionally Cassiopeia.

Hmm it depends on the champion scaling through the game imo. Cassiopeia and Ahri would work better with AP/lvl since they don't have a real burst damage until lvl 6 or 7. Whereas Fizz's early combo W + Q + AA then E to safety with AP Flat runes could do some decent damage and thus zone the enemy mid to deny him as much cs as possible.

As for me, I always run AP/lvl runes because I tend to play passive most of the times before lvl 7. Then I either roam or start heavy trading.

Ok, that true. Now that I think about it I rarely even go for any harder poking before lvl 6 with Ahri, and practically never try to kill anyone, so AP/level is probably better there.

I like to use AP/lvl glyphs whenever I'm looking for stronger burst as opposed to trades. I tend to run a lot of AP on Lux since she outranges all the things.
Thanks to Janitsu for the sig!
