Don't bother to fill out you runes page till your summoner level 20 and thus unlock the tier 3 runes. tiers 1 and 2 are simply a waste of IP.

And if someone tells you can can't press D to dance don't it just wastes a summoner spell. The emotes are ctrl 1, 2, 3, or 4.


So, I am not sure what you are talking about, but remember seeing something to that effect on youtube. Are runes a way to level up your summoner and/or champion? If so, are you saying that it's basically a waste until I can use IP on level 3 stats?

Runes provide bonuses you take in game with you. I believe they break down like this:

Summoner Level - Rune Tier
1-9 : Tier 1
10-19 : Tier 2
20+ : Tier 3

Tier 1 & 2 aren't complete wastes, but since you can out level their usefulness quickly, many just wait til 20 to buy the stuff they'll use for the rest of game.

An example (seriously example only on numbers):
Attack Damage (ad)
Tier 1 may add like 2ad
Tier 2 may add like 5ad
Tier 3 may add like 9ad

So as you see, T2 is better than 1, but easily outclassed at level 20.

Just thought I'd make this more accurate

For AD marks:
Tier 1 - 0.53/rune
Tier 2 - 0.74/rune
Tier 3 - 0.95/rune

So the difference between them isn't that great, but it doesn't change the fact that the lower tier runes are almost entirely useless once you are able to unlock the greater runes.
