Storyline

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.

Introduction

Well welcome to my guide, I see a a lot of his guides following very similar paths to that of the Champion spotlight sooo I'm making this guide because it's different. I play Olaf like i'm a psycho path. I use fear to my advantage and just terrorize the enemy. If you like playing crazy and aren't afraid to die to win then this guide is for you.

Abilities

Berzerker Rage
I like his passive, it allows for you to be able to fight at low health (similar to trynd and sion)


Undertow
A nice move, only use it for the slow and to get assists in group fights


Vicious Strikes
Very nice spell. I use this move if in a lane and i am getting harassed early on to get me some life off the minions


Reckless Swing
Almost like an execute, if you plan on ganking early ranking this up early on instead of vicious strikes helps.


Ragnarok
Not bad of an ulti, it's boosts the damage and little and also blocks some of the incoming dammage

DPS Tips:

Note: I have done EXTREMELY good as this build but if you are not using my rune book (second setup with crit chance + crit damage)then it might not work in your favor

Ok so the tank build isn't your thing? Well you are in luck because I have made a build that still makes players wet themselves at the sight of your manliness and you still aren't squishy (no it doesn't give you a lot of health but it gives you massive life steal...which makes you not squishy as long as you aren't that panzy who sits back and takes it up the butt)

First like I said before in my tank build I'M A CRAZY MAN meaning I pound the piss out of anything that moves and in order for me to do that I need life regen...well instead of life regen we will be grabbing first a now if you are using this build you should have AT LEAST 9.5% crit chance from your rune book (it's not that much no need to cry (this how much i had when i first tried the build)) now that you have some life steal there is no excuse to not be up in everyones face and giving them a punch every now and then.

How To Use

Like I said earlier I play Olaf (along with pretty much every other tank) like a psycho path. I harass a lot and I keep enemies away from my creep waves. Focus on last hitting minions, Olaf doesn't have a very big base damage so it may take some practice. I get the axe throw first encase I'm laned with a guy who is very good at killing players early on so I use the axe to help ensure the kill. DO NOT use the axe every chance you get to harass people, I can't stress this enough. It doesn't do a lot of damage and by blowing all your mana is dumb. You can use it some but be smart about it, don't go and throw the axe at someone who has life regen or a lot of health pots. If I'm using the rune book with crit chance and crit damage then I harass with just auto attacks. If a player is dumb and runs near me ill pop vicious strikes and wale on them a few times. Chances are I will crit and their health will drop. Use your Vicious Strikes to stay in a lane if you are being harassed a lot and use your axe for easy assists in team fights.
