Which is better generally? When I started playing i was told nonstop to use the Armor Pen reds and quints (unless i was using something else for the quints). It made sense seeing as they cost more IP then the damage ones.

I took awhile off from the game and now when I look at guides I am seeing no one using armor pen and everyone using attack damage.

Did something change? Should I be using attack damage? Im not asking for any specific champ btw. More just for a general AD champ rune page.

In straight damage calculations AD is better for early game, where ArmPen is better late game. To win during lane phase AD is optimal, and probably why it's the stat of choice.
There are 10 types of people in the world: those that know binary and those that don't.

Because of the new masteries, you don't necessarily need Arpen runes, and it's generally better to run AD runes.

Of course, it is dependent on the role and champ you're playing.

depends on champion choice, but generally Arpen unless you have bonkers scaling or only intend to last hit for a lot of earlygame.

"Nah, it can stand upright."

10%. So you're getting maybe 3-4 armor under most reasonable earlygame circumstances. Less if you run Sunder/arpen marks.

lategame upgrade that to maybe 10-15.

Full armor pen page (25 armor pen) + 10% masteries against anyone that has under 30 armor, it's going to feel like you're doing true damage.

Umm...don't lifesteal scale with arpen too? Or am I missing something?
Question, how did world trade center building 7 (the -3rd- building to fall) collapse during 9/11?
