Should I buy runes or wait until season 4?

Just hit level 30, have 25k IP just chilling, and only tier 1 runes.

any that get changed will be deleted and refunded. so the only risk you run is getting ones don't get changed but that you for some reason don't want anymore after others get changed

Might aswell get runes you KNOW you will need..

I.e Yellow Armours
Blue Magic res.


and then depending on how you already play...

Get red. MAgic pens and ability power quints if you love using casters
Get red attack damage and attack damage ( or life steal ) if you love using AD

etc etc

If they get removed from the game, sure, but I don't recall them doing any refunds when they nerfed certain runes. Which is why I'm waiting a bit to see if that happens before I pick up some new ones I've been looking at, personally.

TC's situation is a little different though since he doesn't even have any tier 3 runes. Unless you don't intend to play at all until season 4, I'd recommend at least getting armor seals and magic resist glyphs like the above poster said.

except the direct target of the changes that are coming were to help nullify these one size fits all setups

armor yellows were directly mentioned in this

Penetration runes got nerfed when S3 started. None of them were refunded.

The only rune refund I know were for dodge runes because they were removed.

Riot has said they'll remove the current runes and replace them with new ones, instead of nerfing them. This way everyone gets refunds for changed and removed runes.
