How come nobody's guides use Gold/5 quint runes. Doesn't people want their items quicker.
Is it not useful at the end game, is that why?

Thanks for the input.

Mostly because it forces you to play passively because your early stats suck with them. If you're playing passively and aren't a support you're gonna lose CS. If you're a passive support already then you'll be even more fragile when dove until midgame, by which point it's unlikely to matter all that much. Now there were in the past some high level dudes who ran janna and soraka with gold seals (not quints), but that was a year ago when support gold generation was lower and the players were on EUNE which isn't known for being super competitve.

Gold generation used to be core on supports several seasons ago. Since then, Riot Games has changed gold generation for roles that do not farm minions (support and jungle), and thus, gold per five runes became obsolete.
