This build is dedicated to those who like to get down and dirty and hate micro-damaging in fights.

Ghost can be played offensively or defensively, and ignition is a solid bet against Tyran, and any player who tries to get away with low health.

Most prefer to build Olaf in terms of beefing up the health and health regeneration. I like to grab life-stealing off the start - this allows you to be a little more involved when fighting. Olaf's innate ability increases his attack speed inversely proportionate to the amount of life he has lost; this means that the amount of life you steal is exponential (the more life you've lost, the faster you life-gain, meaning at low health you sometimes reach a point where you're gaining more life than they're dishing out). The item's life-steal entwined with Vicious strike gives you about 25% life-steal (after a bit of levelling).

Speed is always a problem when it comes to battle, so I like to get movement +3 as quickly as I can (and later the ice-mallet to slow movement).

I did a half-***ed job writing the skill sequence, but my logic is that when levelling, you should follow this hierarchy: Ragnarok > Reckless Swing > Vicious Strike > Undertow

The point of this build is that it lulls your opponents into a false sense of security - they see your health going down in marginal chunks, but they may not realize your attack-speed curve.


The weaknesses of this build are tanks and stunners.
