I'm hoping somebody can explain HP quints and runes to me, let me explain my confusion.

HP quints give 26 flat HP, you can have up to 3 quints, 3 x 26 = 78.

78 HP??? really? isn't that a TINY amount?

Even at level 1 this isn't much HP at all. Even a Doran's shield gives 150 HP which is almost double what you get from quints, on the other hand, if you look at something like AD quints, they give 2.25 AD, 2.25 x 3 = 6.75, rounded up to 7. And a Doran's Blade gives 10 AD which isn't a huge amount more...Maybe I'm just being naive, but I just feel like when you start with someone like Garen (who I tank with quite often) who starts with 455 HP (Before adding runes, masteries and items) it feels like a waste to spend money on HP quints...what's your opinion's on this matter?

I don't feel the need to have them. Plus they're really expensive. If you want universally good runes get MS quints.

Thank you Miss Maw, CasterMaster and Arcana3 for the sweet sigs. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a nice sig.

I think the only champ I still use them on is Shen.

You can just get movement speed instead as an all-around rune, but most tanks scale somewhat well with AD or AP too.

Marks can be armor, Mpen or Arpen while quints can be movement speed. I really don't know what else to get on tanks :>
