Isometric - Do I need to add shade to the sprite images itself, or render shade during runtime?

So I'm drawing sprites right now for my game world. It's going to be isometric, not rotatable, 2.5 Dimensional. Do I need to add in the shadow to my sprites right now (which would mean to have 5~6 variations of each sprite based on the shadow angle) or do I do that on runtime as the light source changes in the game?
