My argument is that it's exactly the same for the sorcs, mpen runes and void staff. I understand you would buy sorcs first because you need that bit of early game mpen. However, were I to compare 2 Champions.
1 with AD runes, a Black Cleaver and a Last Whisper
1 with Mpen runes, Sorcs Shoes and a Void Staff.
Would the Mpen runes and sorcs shoes not strip the Void Staff of its efficiency late game in the same way that the BC does to the Whisper?
On top of that why not sell your Sorcs Shoes late game for another pair of boots? Mercs Treads for example?
No one has ever explained that before. (Atleast not that I've seen)
And on top of all of this I see some guides which tell me as Lategame Items to buy Void Staff for the Mpen and also an Abyssal Sceptre. Does this not also reduce the penetration of the void staff given that reduction comes before penetration?
