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.
In terms of junglers, Olaf easily rates among the top three for his strength which is among the highest all game for any junglers. Despite not having Nunu's map control or a disable like Amumu/Malphite/WW, he is able to fight far better than any of them thanks to his skillset and ability to have high damage without going a single damage item. Simply put, you can't go wrong with learning Olaf as he's almost always relevant all game because of his strength with and without items.
Creeping / Jungling
START AT WOLVES AND SPAM YOUR "Q" THEN MOVE TOWARDS THE BLUE AND SAME THING GO TO WRAITHS AND PRESS "W" THEN SPAM "Q" AND MOVE BACK TO WOLVES IT SHOULD JUST COME UP KILL IT WITH "W" AND SPAMING "Q" THEN MOVE TO RED SAME THING AND GOLEMS
CLEAR TIME 3:50 IF DONE RIGHT WITH 3/4 HP LEFT BOTH BUFFS
VIDEO BELOW OF JUNGLING
YOU CAN REALLY GO ANYWAY YOU WANT WITH RUNES BUT THIS WILL HELP YOU ALL THOUGH OUT THE GAME EARLY MIDDLE AND END. IT BRINGS UR DMG TO CLEAR THE JUNGLE FAST AND WELL KEEPING YOU WELTHY AND WELL SUBSTAINED ABOUT 3/4 HP WHEN UR DONE WITH VAMPIRIC SCEPTER
SMITE IS A GIVEN AND YOU CAN EITHER CHOOSE BETWEEN FLASH OR GHOST
I USE FLASH FOR ARANGED TEAMS AND MOST OF ALL MY GAMES BUT GHOST IS GOOD TO BECAUSE FLASH GOT NERFED. DEPENDS ON HE ENEMY TEAM AND THERE AMOUNT OF CC EARLY GAME
A great passive, especially for jungling and 1 on 1. The lower your health get the more dangerous you are. This is the way of the Viking. But anyway, don't stay in a fight with almost no health.
Olaf's slow. Actually its damage is pretty small. So we just put one point in it and maximaze it last. Don't use this for jungling except you are not lacking mana. You should be able to hit moving enemies with it as its your job to slow somebody when ganking. Olaf is lacking a good an easy slow like Nunu has e.g. This is why you either need to be great with Undertow or need to have red buff. Best would be to be both.
Viking power! This is just an amazing skill. Damage according to your life, life steal and spell vamp. That's the skill that makes you to a great jungler. And that's the skill that makes you to kick some enemies when ganking or in teamfights. Two points in it will help to jungle fast and save.
This is Olaf's damage skill. Use it whenever possible. But... you are losing life when using it. So have an eye on your own health bar.
I could write "Vikings!" all the way down when talking about this ultimate. It's just great. This makes Olaf a great and dangerous ganking. As Olaf does not has a "nobody can move"-slow like Nunu, Amumu or a great stun ability like Udyr you will mostly need this to gank. Most enemies will try to slow you when you start ganking. Just scream "A VIKING CAN'T BE SLOWED!!!" and kill him as fast as possible. In addition to that this ability makes you even more tanky than you actually are. It helps to follow escaping enemies or to escape. So don't waste it.
