Any one else notice the rise of these runes? Especially in higher elo.

On champs like singed and kat they are very strong. There actually better than magic pen for early game.

For example when kat goes in and e's she will do 2-3 auto attacks when she does full combo of q w e these runes give more dmg due to armor pen and you only lose a bit of magic pen. They only thing i could say is maybe magic pen is better late game but items are really what matters and doing well in lane so im switching to hybrid on akali and kat and singed and champs like that.

They are common on champs who auto attack for ad dmg also a bit. So yea singed is good also kat and others.

Really? I don't exactly see the point... Running flat AD would be 10 times smarter on Kat if what you want is more damage with Autoattacks and sinister steel. Also, Armor Penetration won't do much for you early game, it's only really strong late game if you go for a lot fo physical damage... which you will not.

Well if you go flat ad you get no armor pen where if you go hybrid you get magic pen u dont lose much going hybrid at all you still get good amount. Unless voyboy and other higher elos are lieing to us then you dont do more dmg they say if you get 1 or 2 autos in then its already better than magic pen in a trade (for kat).

Imo - and probably mathematically too - they will be superior in lane if your champion frequently does autoattack harass in addition to magic harass, but weaker in team fights with AoE spell damage. A valid option for being a jerk in lane.

I think point is there stronger in lane runes dont matter as much for team fights... items do so if you got few kills off in lane because of more dmg its better than 2 or 3 more magic pen which can easily be built in larger amount in items.

Its same situation of why people us ad red and quints over armor pen in lane you need early game dmg to lead to kills with lead to advantage.

There not for every one who autos alot i would not use them on diana since shes most autos for her passive.

Here is it more in detail.

" we see that if you're likely to land even one auto attack between two spell casts early game, you'll find greater damage output in this part of the game with Hybrid Penetration runes."

mathematically magic penetration is awesome for magic based champions. But you dont lose alot of mpen if you swap them out for hybridpen while gaining alot of arpen. High elo players abuse auto attacks whenever they can, so the efficiency of armorpen goes through the roof. Ive been experimenting with many setups and hybpen is so strong.
I wouldnt recommend this for players below mid gold ranking because thats where people dont understand how auto attacks work in lane (either they dont aa when they have the chance to, or they take too much miniondmg when attempting to abuse those runes)
learn to aaharass first, then start using hybridpen. (plus there are matchups where you just wont land aas remember that)

I generally only use them on singed and mundo, but they work well on AP champs with decent AA range. It gives you a little more damage in trades and makes last hitting a lot easier.
