Jungle Olaf Guide
Summoner Spells::Smite is a must have for jungling, especially with Olaf.
:Ghost is excellent to supplement Olaf's ability to chase enemies as well as an escape route when neccessary.
Items::Cloth Armor is an excellent first item becuase not only does it make jungling easier, you will have enough cash for 5 health pots which will speed up your jungling.
:Madred's Razors are amazing becuase the 15% chance of 500 on a minion will help farm youre buffs that much quicker, and when its time for dragon as well.
:Berserker's Greaves are my personal favorite for Olaf because with his passive he will have plenty of attack speed, however you can swap these for your choice, and substitute one of the items for attack speed.
:Phage is excellent because the health increases Olaf's damage with vicous strikes, and adds the slow chance which is very useful.
:Wriggle's Lantern, which I personally choose because it gives you damage, life steal, and retains the percent (20%) to deal minoin damage which helps with jungling or pushing. The ward is y favorite part though, placing it at dragon or wherever helps your team extremely. You can always grab Madred's Bloodrazer insted and a different life steal item, this is just my preference.
:Frozen Mallet + Olaf = Amazing. The slow helps so much with chasing and the hp helps with survivability as well as damage output.
:Avarice Blade into the Ghostblade is great because the crits and armor pen help out with your DPS and the active helps for chasing/fleeing in battles.
:Infinity Edge helps with crazy crits from it and your ghostblade, heavily increasing your damage output.
: Soul Shroud is completely optional, I choose it for the health (which helps with vicous strikes) and cooldown for abilities. You can easily swap it for Black Cleaver or a different item, whatever suits you best.
1.Start off jungling at Golem. Open with vicious strikes and pop a health pot. When vicious strikes is up again use your smite because the spell vamp will heal you, making Golem a whole lot easier.
2.Next, head to the wolf camp. Spam your Undertow and make sure to hit all the wolves. Once again use undertow when Vicious Strikes is active for the spell vamp. If you need a health pot use it, then head over to the wraiths.
3.At the wraith camp use Undertow diagonally to hit as many as you can, then finish them off.
4.Next up is lizard, pop a health pot and start attacking. Like before make sure that when you use undertow or smite that your Vicious Strikes is active giving you that much more survivability.
5.The next camp is the two golems, if you need a health pot use it but otherwise this should be fairly easy.
6.Next up, with both buffs you should check which lane is the easiest and go for a gank (if not just make sure you can afford at least Madred's Razors).
7.With Madred's Razors you should go for Dragon, use the same tactice you used for Golem and Lizard. Dragon is important for your team to control so try to be dominant over it.
8.After, you can continue to jungle when neutrals are up and even steal the enemy buffs. After a few items you can take most champions 1v1 so as long as your smart about it you could steal their buffs as well.
