Hi everyone,

Caitlyn is my first 6300ip champion and I like her a lot, pretty impressive if played correctly and really fun ultimate to get the double kill in lane ^^

I'm not level 30 yet, so I don't have a complete rune set, but at the moment I'm playing with these runes:
- 2 flat AD Quints
- 8 Armor penetration Marks
- 8 flat Armor Seals
- 7 flat Magic Res Glyphs

I chose AD Quints + ArPen Marks over ArPen Quints + AD Marks, because while ArpQuints = 2*ArpMarks, ADQuints > 2*ADMarks.

I was wondering if it would be better to switch ArPen to AD Marks and flat MagicRes to MagicRes per level Glyphs. What do you think about it? Should I consider Attack Speed Marks?

Standard on most AD carries:

- 9x flat AD Marks
- 9x flat Armor Seals
- 9x MR/lvl Glyphs
- 3x flat AD Quints.

Reason to take flat AD is because you will get a Last Whisper so you do not need the ArPen. Also the AD works well with last hitting minions and Caitlyn's Q and R scale well with AD :)

You got it right in terms of AD quints>AD marks(by the exact same reasoning I had :) ).
AD quints are real strong, but don't just go with the flock on AD marks. They're pretty good, but ArP out-scales AD after just 1 or 2 levels against enemies with above ~20armor (I'm GENERALIZING here, so it's just this way in 90% of the cases). That means that against melee minions you deal a tiny, tiny bit more damage and against caster minions you deal noticeably(2 or 3 or so) more damage(depending on their armor. Cannon minions take more damage when you use ArP though).

It's up to you. Do you want 1 to 3 more damage against minions or do you want ~3% more damage against champions? (the actual benefit of ArP marks range from -~4% at level 1, to +~8% at level 10, to +~3% at lategame)
I personally like ArP more.

True, though ArP Marks are stronger imo. Normally you get LW not thaaat early and ArP > full AD til then.

^ArP marks are stronger than AD even with Last Whisper, but the difference shrinks when you get that item.
