Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Welcome to my first guide on Mobafire. This will feature mainly how I play olaf. Please refer to build two for a my main build. Well let's get started.
PROLAF (Olaf in general)
One of the best laners in the game. You got true damage, life steal, slow. N of course, u r a much more potent version. Of alistar n the lower your health the better. Playstyle of olaf: please get my health lower so I can chop u faster.
For runes, I prefer the runes in build 1 as it Is an all round selection. Armor pen n damage mixed in with armor n magic resist. However, if u find yourself against some troll top like Evelyn (mainly for draft pick) then knock yourself out. Go full damage or even AP. Not like it matters. Either way it's free food n a free win. ;)
Almost the same thing as runes. Use build 1 for a serious match n build 2 against trolls or easy wins. I wouldn't recommend the utility tree as cdr or mana regen isn't really what you need if you are maxing something that costs your own health and not undertow.
Flash and ignite. Forever. Every time. Don't use it and u suck. Just kidding. Summoners on olaf are pretty versatile.
- Good for flashing over walls.
- Good for pissing off the enemy.
- Good for chasing.
- Think the enemy's escaping? Think again.
- Say goodbye to the enemy Soraka's point of existence.
- DOUBLE TRUE DAMAGE SKILLS OP
Other viable summoners
- Good combo with olaf's ult. Turn it on n run like you've got no pants. Trust me it's fun.
- Great escape and chasing spell. However, u can't go through walls. D:
- An ally is getting chased down at bot? Surprise package OLAF delivered.
- In the event you are losing your lane, go back heal up, pot up, n come back 2 seconds later. Big problem. OLAF NEVER LOSES HIS LANE.
Olaf's build in great detail.
Basically, this is olaf's good phases. It all depends on how stupid the enemy is to getting waaaaaay too close. If he comes in range, make him know what a million volts feels like. A good tip is that before reckless striking, use your vicious strikes as there is spell vamp and you won't lose as much health. Of course, mana has to be considered as well.
This is olaf's favorite part of the game. 340 true damage when everyone has roughly a thousand and five. Yay. Make your enemies fear lightning. Turn on your ult and walk through that veigars stun. Say hello with a zing. U should go about 20-1 around this time. That stupid tower dive. Oh well.
Ok. Everybody has their full build. Team fights suddenly became all the rage. Go back to farm and your team screams at you. Just lead the charge at team fights. Turn on your ult. Keep the enemy carries occupied with your chopping and stay in the fight for as long as you can. With this build, u should come out unscathed and with the while enemy team slaughtered by the great berserker.
U practically facerolled the last team fight. Here's when the fun begins. Sell everything and get the core items. Or item. 6 zeals. Upgrade as many as you can into phantom dancers. AND RUN LIKE THE WIND TO THE ENEMY NEXUS AND CHOP IT TO PIECES. Or of course you can still go in the team fights and distract the enemy team by letting them chase you. You might die. Then your team gets aced. And you realize your team still needs you.
Super late game. (could have ended is 30 minutes ago..... Oh well)
Sell all your core items and get the stupid items again. Frozen mallet, atma's, boots and any other item from the last build affordable. Then go on and finally win the game.
So let me sum this up. Buy all the items in build one. Sell everything and get 6 zeals. then sell everything again cause u realize your team needs you and get as many of build 1 items as you can. This is the build to win. Step 2 must be followed at every match. Olaf is a great laner with a lot of damage. Use his powers wisely. And of course, attack speed is great I mean, who needs damage right?
