So i'm currently just short of level 19 which means i'll soon have access to tier 3 runes, would you recommend buying more champions (I currently have around 10 or 11) or saving my ip to fill 2 basic rune pages? Most of my champions are bruisers with a couple of ap mid champions so i'm not sure if buying a support and another ad carry first so i have a better range of roles available.

Thanks in advance,
Musher

Runes. You'll be better with them and you will probably win more, which means more cash. Buy runes for a champion you mostly play, pointless getting Gold per 10 sec if you aren't playing support.

Yes and no. Having runes will not make you win more, it gives an advantage, but chances still are 50/50.

If he buys runes, he will have advantage. With that advantage, if hes any good, he'll carry and instead of 50-50 victory he'll have 55-45 perhaps. Anyway the point was, buy runes first in my opinion.

A wise man gets more use from his enemies than a fool from his friends.

If you've got around 10 champions, I'd say DEFINITELY start working on your rune pages. Obviously you won't be able to fill them out completely, but getting a good head-start is never a bad idea.


For example, my first very basic rune purchases:

Greater Mark of Desolation x9 (For basic AD)
Greater Mark of Insight x9 (For basic AP)
Greater Seal of Resilience x9 (Used for both basic AD, and AP)
Greater Glyph of Shielding x9 (Used for both basic AD, and AP)
Greater Quint. of Desolation (For basic AD)
Greater Quint. of Potency (For basic AP)

After I farmed up IP for quite awhile, I'm FINALLY able to start creating rune pages specific to champions I enjoy playing. So, YES. Starting basic AD, and AP rune pages is definitely a great idea.

I'm gonna have to say runes, but with an exception clause that you should get some really strong champions if you don't have them. Like, if you're stuck with nunu, annie, ashe, poppy etc (cheap ones) I would say finish your pen marks and quints then buy 1-2 strong 6300 champions before finishing off seals/glyphs.

Runes, It can get you started on being able to do ranks at lvl 30 and it can give you an advantage.
