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.

Introduction

Hey everyone! Welcome to my Olaf build guide! In this guide, I'll explain my choice in runes, skill sequence, masteries, and items, but that all comes later. For now, please enjoy my second guide. Constructive criticism is always welcome.

Runes

Greater Seal of Armor

Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist

Greater Quintessence of Movement Speed
3

I use these runes for Olaf. Thearmor penetration marks allow Olaf to get the most damage out of his Undertow and Vicious Strikes. The flat armor seals and magic resist per level glyphs give Olaf the defense he needs against any solo top laners like Darius, Shen, and even Jayce. The flat movement speed quints allow for easy chasing in the early game.

These are the masteries I use for Olaf. In the offense branch, I take the extraattack damage, attack speed, cooldown reduction, life steal, and armor penetration. Plus the bonus effect on Exhaust and bonus damage to minions and monsters from Butcher . In the defense branch, I take the reduced damage, bonus health, and armor

These items here....are just amazing on Olaf. Pretty self-explantory really. Lots of health, damage, and movement speed buffs. The Guardian Angel is there because most likely, you're going to outlast half your team. Once that fight turns around, you'll get focused, so having a Guardian Angel means if they focus you, you wreck them with your ultimate, Ragnarok, and your Reckless Swing.

Skill Sequence

Ability Sequence

The whole point of taking Reckless Swing first is to farm the early game. Maxing it first allows for moreTrue Damage and it's a great finisher. Max Undertow second to get good ranged damage and a slow proc for chasing down that pentakill. Maxing Vicious Strikes last because it's not as useful as Undertow and Reckless Swing. Put points in Ragnarok at levels 6, 11, and 16. Your standard ultimate sequence.

Summoner Spells

Ignite

  • Nice early game finisher for when you can't dive
  • Deals True Damage
  • Makes diving on multiple people a lot easier
Ghost

Farming

When it comes to farming, you should always be in between your caster minions and melee minions, waiting to last hit with Reckless Swing. If you're getting zoned, use your Undertow to farm at a distance, but be wary of your mana. It'll deplete very quickly if you spam Undertow.

Summary

In short, Olaf is one of the best solo top champions out there. His chasing is great. He can dive turrets with Ragnarok and Reckless Swing. An overall fun champion to play. Really easy to pick up. If you don't already have him, buy him.
