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.
On an uncharted continent beyond Valoran's grasping clutches, the conqueror named Olaf was born to a long tradition of soldiers unlike most others. Berserkers, as they tout themselves, are warriors who channel fury deep from their cores, unleashing pure and savage wrath upon their enemies. This fearsome evolution is a product of their unforgiving home, Lokfar - a barren tundra where all creatures must vie bitterly for every resource. Olaf belonged to a seafaring clan known for ruthlessly pillaging any and all villages within reach of their dragon-crested longboats. The last time he saw his icy home, Olaf was embarking on an expedition to pioneer and plunder a distant land known only to legend. However, while underway, a terrible storm sprung up and Olaf and his crew were thrown to the mercy of a roiling and pitiless sea.
His ship destroyed, his crew nowhere to be found, Olaf miraculously washed up untold miles from ''friendly'' waters on the foreign shores of Valoran, south of Demacia. This unfamiliar place stunned and frightened the Berserker, for Lokfar is not privy to such potent magicians. Approaching them, Olaf hoped that they could use their mysterious powers to send him back to his people. A bargain was struck. Olaf would use his awesome prowess as a warrior to serve the unusual wars of Valoran in the League of Legends, and in exchange the sorcerers would find him a way to return. Despite his participation in the League, Olaf knows better than to trust the ''finger wagglers'' that run the Institute of War. He deliberately keeps details of his life and home from them. After all, with enough information, they would most certainly find the Lokfarians and dominate them as they have dominated all of Valoran, keeping both quietly -- and unwittingly -- in their thrall.
Beware the war cry of the Berserker. What surges toward you is unyielding, free from the shackles of reason.
So I was playing around trying different builds on Olaf and I wanted to know what a Tanky/Crit Olaf was like. I tried different items on each game until I came to this one. I just dominated everyone that came at me. One game I had about 600 health on me left, I saw this pantheon coming through the bush, I used Ragnarok and ran at him he tried stunning me (fail), I used reckless swing took a big chunk of health from him, shredding him with basic attack, he tries to run away I used undertow to kill him. Maokai comes out of nowhere and roots me, I use reckless swing followed by Vicious strike for the life steal and spell vamp, I use Reckless swing every time it is available, And Double kill. :)
Pros / Cons
His (E) does ridiculously damage
Tanky while packing a huge critical punch
His ultimate is immune to any disables
Cons (this is a tuffy)
Can easily be killed if ganked by 3 or more players.
Undertow - Olaf throws an axe into the ground at a target location, dealing damage to units it passes through and slowing their movement speed. If Olaf picks up the axe, the ability's cooldown is reduced by 6 seconds.
Olaf throws an axe to a target location, dealing 50/90/130/170/210 (+) physical damage to units it passes through and slowing them by 24/28/32/36/40% for 2.5 seconds.
If Olaf picks up the axe, the ability's cooldown is reduced by 6 seconds.
I love using this build to slow down or finish my enemies.
Vicious Strikes - Olaf's attack damage is increased, based on his health, and he gains massive lifesteal and spell vamp.
For 6 seconds, Olaf's attack damage is increased by 7/14/21/28/35 (+ [1% of maximum Health]) and he gains 9/12/15/18/21% lifesteal and spell vamp.
I use this skill when I am low on health to regain my health because of its lifesteal and spell vamp;
Reckless Swing - Olaf attacks with such force that it deals true damage to his target and himself.
Olaf deals 100/160/220/280/340 true damage to his target and inflicts 40/64/88/112/136 true damage to himself.
Our main skill inflicts true damage this skill is ridiculously strong, use when available.
Ragnarok - Olaf is immune to disables, has increased armor penetration and reduces incoming damage.
Active: For 5/6.5/8 seconds, Olaf is immune to disables and reduces incoming damage by 20/30/40.
Passive: Olaf has 10/20/30 increased armor penetration.
Awesome ultimate use when fight against someone with a stun or root and etc.
like pantheon, maokai, etc.
+25 Magic Resist +35 Tenacity UNIQUE Passive: Enhanced Movement 2 (Tenacity reduces the duration of stuns, slows, taunts, fears, silences, blinds and immobilizes. Tenacity effects do not stack) More magic resists and tenacity AWESOME :)
+68 Armor +38 Magic Resistance UNIQUE Passive: Revives your Champion upon death, restoring 750 Health and 375 Mana. This effect can only occur once every 5 minutes.
Armor Magic resistance Revives your champion OMGG ULTIMATE armor :D
+80 Attack Damage +25% Critical Strike UNIQUE Passive: Critical hits now deal 250% damage instead of 200%. Damage + Critical FTW and it increases Critical hit damage
+55% Attack Speed +30% Critical Strike +15% Movement Speed
(2 of these) Movement speed + Attack speed + critical Strike how much more can you want?
+30 Attack Damage +15% Critical Chance UNIQUE Passive: +20 Armor Penetration 15% Cooldown Reduction UNIQUE Active: You gain +20% movespeed and +50% attack speed for 4 seconds. Attacking enemy units with melee attacks increases the duration by 2 to a maximum of 8 seconds. 60 second cooldown. My favorite last item for olaf because it adds armor penetration attack and critical chance.
Use Undertow on a large wave of minion to kill a few weaker ones then charge at them and use Vicious strike to finish the rest off.
