I am a level 19 summoner and i have just recently started buying runes. i just thought it might give me a bit of an edge over my opponents who don't use them at all. Should i wait until level 30 to start buying runes? I already have multiple champions for each position, and I am not close to being bored with them. Should i buy runes now, or wait?

Runes give you so much of an advantage. Buy them after you hit level 20 (so you have access to tier 3 runes).

This. Also most useful runes:

9x Greater Mark of Attack Damage (cheap and useful on most champions)
9x Greater Mark of Magic Penetration (Use AD marks on mages until you got these)
9x Greater Seal of Armor (cheap and universal)
9x Greater Glyph of Magic Resist (same as the seals)
3x Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed (most versatile quints)
3x Greater Quintessence of Ability Power (for those mages who do not benefit that much from AP quints)
3x Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage (useful on bruisers, junglers and carries)

Yeah, you don't have to wait until level 30. The runes you can get at 20 are the best you can get. Also, if you have the money, saving your IP for runes and buying whatever champ you want with RP will make it a lot easier to fill out those rune pages.

Also, above poster has it right. If you're looking for the quickest, most versatile set of runes, then go for flat AD reds, flat armor yellows, scaling MR blues, and flat AD quints. These are great for playing top, bottom ADC, and will work for jungler (until you can get some atkspd% reds).

Or like me one tank and one ap
Meaning the same thing as AD and AP
Same quints, seals, and glyphs help.
AKA MS, Armor, and MR
For Marks go AD/Armor Pen and AP/Magic Pen
+1 Rep me if you think I help you or others or don't Pick A Card.

... Man I used to say that stuff. It's been years.

The difference in early game power between level 20+ players and lower level ones is ridiculous.

I bought some runes early levels, had like -4% CD and +2 AP for AP mids. OWNAGE.

GrandmasterD summed it up pretty good.
