15 AD vs 9.6 AD + 10 ArPen?

Which do you think is better? Plan to use for champs like lee sin/ad casters etc.etc.etc.

Armour Pen early game for Casters like Lee, Talon, and Ez is good, but I find that the full AD works better as the 10% Pen mastery is usually enough.

However, that extra Armour Penetration will help late game, assuming they don't have enough armour to warrant a LW.

Apen to hurt champions, AD to CS.

10 Armor penetration will give you FAR more damage than 5 extra AD will. It almost negates the armor yellows that most AD Carries have.

5 AD will improve CSing exponentially, believe it or not, and when the difference is a better late game, it's better

Also for jungle speed around 10-15 ArPen will be much faster because you will be hitting for true damage. I'd have to look up the exact number but I want to say it's 12.

Stop using "exponentially" incorrectly.

I was thinking the same.

No it doesn't and you'll barely see a difference in damage. It might be 1-2 damage per auto attack on a champ early game but you'll do less to minions since they have no armor at the start which can hurt CSing a bit. It's give and take.

i hope you understand that it is exponential due to the fact that you get items faster which leads to better CSing faster which leads to more items faster? It's not a linear progression.
