Welcome to my Off Tank Olaf guide!
Hi! Today I'll be giving you a guide to playing Olaf. Olaf is a tanky DPS champion which means he can have a BUNCH of health and still do amazing damage. My guide covers the off tank build for Olaf. Off tank means you have tanky attributes EX: Lots of health and armor. But you can still do Tons of damage ;).

For runes I go for armor pen and magic resist while grabbing flat health quints. This may seem like more of a tank build but it's great when in combination with items. Anyway Olaf is still a champion who needs a lot of Tanky attributes.

Skill Sequence

So lets talk skill sequence.

You start off with your Q

At level 2 grab your E

and at level 3 grab W

Prioritize both Q and E grabbing both one after the other getting you're ult whenever possible.

Max your W when there's nothing else left to level

Now items are very important, let me explain why I chose what i did.

Boots and 3 health pots because extra movement speed is great also for you to rush B Greaves.

Frozen Mallet, it's a must no matter what olaf guide you see you will be getting Frozen Mallet every time.

Atmas because it Scales with Health giving you a lot of damage without sacrificing tankiness.

Warmogs for extra sustain and also for atmas.

Phantom dancers mainly because you already have a lot of damage and crit so lets get attack speed and EVEN MORE CRIT to balance it out.

I chose banshees veil because of the magic resist but that can be swapped.

Summoner Spells

So lets do this, You want to grab Flash and Ignite but You can swap Flash for ghost or teleport.

Team Work


To gank just lead in with your Q then W and the E to finish them off

If you can't kill them just spam your Q running over it again and again and also SPAM DAT E <3

Also have a jungler so you can solo top lane

Just get last hits and try to harass with your Q, its simple then follow the Gank combo to finish them off.

Remember late game your Q can be used to wipe out entire minion waves giving you tons of gold.
