Playing Ashe would it be worth it to rush Last Whisper for the first item before boots(2) even with full Arm Pen marks or would it just be a waste and should just go for the EI or cleaver?

Ashe has no damage-steroids, penetration is useless if you aren't dealing a lot of damage in the first place. I would build IE/Bloodthirster.

Even if ashe did have damage steroids, the flat damage and spike damage of ie or the survivability with blood thirster outweighs the penetratin on LW. Additionally LW only becomes valuable later in the game when oppoenents actually have the armor values required to make % pen worth it.

Last Whisper's usefulness is directly proportional to how much armor the enemy has. In the time it takes to farm IE, most enemies still won't have enough armor to justify LW. Besides the armor penetration, LW only gives you 40 AD. Infinity Edge gives you twice that and amplifies your damage by approximately 37.5%. It also enhances the effectiveness of your other crit items.

No
Ashe, just like most ad carries need Infinity edge to be able to do some damage
If you buy Last whisper first you will go past all the enemies magic resist but won't have the damage to gain from doing so, the enemy will think your stupid rather than be intimidated by such a thing
here is how you should build Ashe
Shoes->Infinity Edge->Phantom Dancer->Bloodrazor->Last Whisper->Bloodrazor
