Rune pages are a vital part of every League of Legends game. Choosing between paths, their unique Runes, and Stat Shards is not an easy decision to make. To make it easier for everyone, we prepared standard Rune pages for every role. These pages are set to work in general, but don’t forget to play around and find the playstyle that suits you the best!
Recommended all-around page starts from the Precision path. In a combination with the Resolve path, this Rune page includes almost everything you need - sustain, attack speed, additional damage, etc. For Stats Shards, it might be best to grab a little bit of everything!
Top Lane (Tank)
For a full-tank toplaner, we recommend going with the Resolve path and choosing Grasp of the Undying as your keystone. Grasp will deal additional damage while also healing you and increasing your overall health. Afterward, Runes include health and sustain boosts, as well as the Stopwatch and Biscuits for survivability. For Stats Shards, grab CDR, armor/MR (depending on the matchup), and scaling health, respectively.
Top Lane (AP Bruiser)
AP bruisers need to dominate, so Domination path with Electrocute as a keystone is what will let you truly burst out the damage. Feel free to switch Sudden impact with Cheap Shot if you’re playing with a hero/team that impairs movement. Even more damage should come from Sorcery secondary path and Stat Shards.
AD Top & Mid
Choosing Precision path for your AD toplaner or midlaner will let you deal higher damage, with some sustain to help you hold on a little longer. CDR and damage are usually what you’re looking for in most of the bruisers, so Sorcery is a great secondary path to pick. As an offense Stat, CDR works great, but adaptive force works just as well too.
Mid Lane (AP)
Sorcery path is usually the choice for a mage. Arcane Comet is an amazing keystone, but you’ll find Aery to be very useful at most times. The path and the Stat Shards focus on mana, CDR, and damage. These stats are further increased with the choice of Inspiration as your secondary path.
To move quickly around the jungle and deal a fair amount of damage, choosing Precision as your main path and Sorcery as the second is the best way to go. Pick Conqueror to gain more damage, and the rest accordingly. Choose between armor/MR as your flex Stat based on the matchup.
Tank junglers are more likely to pick the Resolve path for more durability and more efficient ganks. Precision path is a good second choice since it adds health and attack speed. Focus your Shards on sustain and attack speed, too.
Bot lane: ADC
ADC's need damage and attack speed the most. Choosing the Precision path will improve your attack, while runes in Inspiration as the secondary path will ease up the early game. Don't forget to grab more attack speed as your offense Stat!
Bot Lane: Support (Mage)
AP supports should choose the Sorcery path. Summoning Aerie helps you to target opponents or shield your allies, and the rest of the tree will add to your sustain, CDR and damage for poke. Choose Inspiration as your secondary path for more damage, cooldown reduction, and movement speed.
Bot Lane: Support (Tank)
Support tanks call for the Resolve path. Guardian as a keystone will give a shield, while the rest of the Runes will add even more sustain. Inspiration path will help you keep up with the laning phase. Change your flex and/or defense Stat based on the matchup.
