Hey all! I'm just wondering what the best generic suppport runes are. I'm currently running MPen Marks, gp5 quints, flat armor seals and mr/lvl glyphs. I'm thinking of swapping out the armor and magic res for gp5 and mana reg respectively but I'm not sure if it's a good choice and I don't want to buy 9 seals for nothing.
Many thanks in advance!

If I recall correctly there is only gp10 quints and no other gp10 options and these gp10 quints are very valuable.

I'd say that the marks is different on each support, I usually go with CDR due to the high cds on the reliable heals and such, armor is something I always keep in seals because you are 90% of the time matched up vs an AD and a Support, and then the armor is the best option as mana regen shouldn't be needed since you start out with some mana regen and always get a philo stone granting you some mana regen.
For glyphs I usually go CDR aswell but magic resistance is usually recommended by the high elo players.

the gold seals are pretty weak, u shoulda keep armor.
Mana reg is not usefull for all supports(soraka...), so it kinda depends. I go still always go with lvl/mr

Marks heavily depend ont the support:
taric:flat mr or mana reg
sona:mana reg(or flat armor and use yellow mana reg)
soraka:flat armor
janna:whatever(cdr,flat armor..)

after thise runes arent rly usefull on other champions, u may just use the runes u have anyway

Red: Armor
Yellow: Gp/10
Blue: Manareg
Quint: Gp/10

replace Yellows for armor against a strong early lane (Graves, MF i.e.)

i dunno about manareg because why would i take manareg runes if i build philo anyway?
Manareg blues have a bad scaling in particular you get like 1 mp5 per 2 lvls...that's not needed at all.
i rather take mr (flat or scaling) just to get less damage from enemy support/jungler/midlane or in special cases ad-carries with magicdamage (mf, corki, trist..etc)

my runes are
marks: armor (flat)
seals: armor (flat)
glyphs: mr (flat or scaling most of the time i take flat)
quints: gp10

Actually playing with:

red: armor flat
yellow: gp10
blue: flat cdr
quints: gp10

and doing pretty fine. Before i used to go:

red: magic/arpen
yellow: armor
blue: flat cdr
quints: mov. speed

and had pretty stronger laning phase, but still the incoming gold from massive gp10 stack iz to stronk.

the common denominator of all these runebuilds is that you have to rune ARMOR.
i also strongly propose, that a low-armored support on botlane will always be a liability, therefore tanky masteries and runes should be used.
