I just started playing last last week. I play in the Philippines. I just want to know if I should start buying runes already? I mean I bought some but I think it doesn't help me that much yet. Sometimes, during early game, other players have high attack damage maybe because of their runes. I'm just level 15 so I can't buy the Tier 3 Runes yet. Should I start buying runes already? And what runes should I buy?

Wait until you can buy the tier 3 runes before you buy any or you're just wasting IP. I suggest starting by reading Searz rune guide.

Some good all around runes to begin with are:

Caster:
Greater Mark of Magic Penetration
Greater Seal of Scaling Mana Regeneration
Greater Glyph of Scaling Ability Power
Greater Quintessence of Ability Power

Everything else:
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Attack Damage

Get the armour seals and MR/lvl glyphs first, they are strong on anyone. 4/6 of my runepages use MR/lvl and 5/6 of them use armour.

All the pros use AD nowadays. ArP is okay too though.

They are virtually the same against enemy champions (I think ArP has a slight damage advantage) but AD also helps with last hitting.

just because pros do it doesnt mean its not mathematically superior to do pen reds.

So I should just wait for me to reach level 20 before I buy runes? Because sometimes it's hard to fight those with runes already. :|

Wait until level 20, you're almost there anyway.

yeah, rank 1 and 2 runes are worthless once you hit level 20.

The pros probably think that AD marks and quints are equally strong. They don't really have much of a clue of how they actually compare.
ArP marks still are overall stronger on most champions. Especially junglers.
"I saw [Twilight: Eclipse] in theaters with a girl I was dating at the time. I spent more time staring at my toes and wiggling them than I did watching this abomination. When Edward proposed to Blank Face, I finally looked up with a revelation.
I blurted out loud, in a dead silent theater full of teenage girls on opening night "Wait a minute, Edward has no blood flow. How does he get an erection?" I heard several men laughing, and had several girls turn and stare at me.

I did not get laid that night." - Berengier817
