If you could only make 4 Rune Pages in 2015
If you could only make 4 Rune Pages, what would you make? Buying as few new runes as possible, IMO it's this. Note that the Ability Power one (MPen, Armor, MR, AP) also works on AP Top Laners like Singed, Maokai, Rumble. -- Watch live at http://www.twitch.tv/phreakstream Page 1 - ADCarry | Jax/Irelia Top | Nocturne/Master Yi Jungle Attack Damage / Armor / Magic Resist / Attack Speed Page 2 - AP Solo Lane | AP Support Magic Penetration / Armor / Magic Resist / Ability Power Page 3 - Thresh/Blitzcrank/Leona/Taric Support Attack Damage / Armor / Magic Resist / Armor Page 4 - AD champions in solo lanes or jungle Attack Damage / Armor / Magic Resist / Attack Damage Total Runes Used: Marks - Attack Damage, Magic Penetration Seals - Armor Glyphs - Magic Resist Quintessences - Attack Speed, Ability Power, Armor, Attack Damage Next Runes Acquired: Health Seals, Cooldown Reduction Glyphs

How I Would Change Crit Marskmen
Top 8 steepest mastery curves: https://twitter.com/RiotBlaustoise/status/1075515580570980352 Quick recap: Problems: Crit marksmen... 1. Are not well differentiated (not unique) 2. Have low agency in mid-game as compensation for their power late game 3. Have very low counter-play late game Supposition: Abilities make champions unique Solutions: 1. Make important offensive abilities scale with champion level, allowing them to scale with the game. Typically this would be with Total Attack Damage ratios. Abilities like Kog'Maw W solve this by scaling off of enemy champion HP and Kog'Maw's attack speed. 2. Make crit marksmen itemization all contain Attack Damage. This mostly just affects Zeal's upgrades. The hope is that this will make crit marksmen's abilities a larger part of their strengths and thus make playing around the abilities a bigger part of the champion, both as and against. Ideally, auto-attack based marksmen are differentiated on their decision-making for auto-attacking. Kog'Maw, Vayne, and Kalista are good examples of these as champions whose auto-attacks feel and behave very differently. This is much more difficult work and thus out of scope for this video and this suggestion. Ultimately, this would push champions like Tristana, Jinx, and Ashe more toward their caster brethren like Lucian, but I think there are good ways to hook these abilities into their basic attack patterns.
