I kinda have a problem with runes because I can't fully understand how they work

Are they supposed to help only during early game, or the whole match?

They stop working when you turn level 8.

Runes are a conspiracy instigated by Riot to keep da white man down.

Well in that case lesgo ah kaint wait l0l

(TheJohn, it all depends on what you want to accomplish. Your choice of runes will determine whether they are early or late game.)

k hurry up nub.

And yea, but imo runes should be targeted for early game play to give you the extra edge to get a good start and in turn the gold to itemize late game where the effects of runes don't make much of an impact in comparison to the items you could buy.

K I guess I'll actually give you a serious answer.

Generally, people buy runes to help out their early game. The bonuses tend to make the most difference earlygame with things like armour, AD or AP runes.

However if you get per level runes they will actually scale fairly decently into mid/late game.
