AP for early game, which can be devastating if you manage to pull a lead and acquire/quickly stack more AP from items.

MPen in the long run.

Flat mpen is most effective at low amounts of mres though, because of diminishing returns with stacking resistances.

champ dependant.

If you are someone like gragas/sion AP all the way. These 2 champs specifically are still recommended to rush 2 dorans rings.

Look up the champs you play the most and see what their ratios are. If 2 or more spells of their kit is .8 or higher ap might be better.

stacking resistances has become extremely uncommon tho. and with the change to pen it makes sense.

Pretty much, the higher your AP ratios, the more you should prefer AP over Mpen.

Magic pen reds
AP quints

I like mpen because of how good an early guise is. No one really takes MR any more, so easy to get true damage.
