FEAR THE BEARD! READ THIS!
Hi guys this is my first mobafire guide! Listen guy I know Olaf has been changed a lot and now his ult gives damage over armor + mag resist. Also his q now gets stuck in walls and can't pass through. I know that seems like Olaf is not good anymore but he is good! I promise you guys Olaf is still strong! I hope you guys try out my build because its suuuper strong! It may seem kind of weird but I will explain here. Basically Olaf has an attack speed steroid with his passive and his w. He also has high base health. So if you build this much damage with lifesteal you become UNKILLABLE with your w on. W also grants extra lifesteal on top of attack speed. Read ITEM CHAPTER for further help. Thanks guys hope you enjoy!
On the skills you have to max r first because its your ult duh! Max e next because of true dmg it is great early game. Remember YOU are the lane bully. Then max w because it grants you your attack speed and sustain. Max q last this is only a utility, it can be maxed second if you are being harassed in lane but if not this only serves as a utility.
Pros / Cons
Olaf is a viking! Mana hungry early game.
Olaf is natrually tanky No hard CC
Has a slow No initiation
Has an amazing ult that stops all cc Only single target dmg
Mana hungry early game.
No hard CC
Only single target dmg
In this phase you just cs and harass with e. E does true dmg so you can normally beat out your opponent during this time. No need for big plays at this time you will start shining in mid to late game.
This is where you run in ultimate and lifesteal the hell outta everyone. Beginning with the enemy adc. First let your tank engage. Then either kill anyone who attacks your adc or go for their adc. Priority is killing enemy carries. Note: Do not engage. You are NOT the tank and yyou have no initiation. Enter the fight after your tank/initiator has started it!
Items. Oh boy. Well you see the items I have chosen synergize very well with all his abilities. You begin with rushing randuin/spirits visage because you have true dmg in the beginning. Then you rush lots of lifesteal and dmg because you have att speed built into you. End game you can easy solo baron and 1v2 pretty much anyone. Randuins gives you a little more cc with active and spirits grants you extra heals from lifesteal. You also take turrets very fast and can split push insanely quickly with ravenous hydra. Your boots give you some att speed while your w is down also. Olaf being the natural tank will still have around 2700 - 3000 hp with the final build I put up. Most people do not build full ad on olaf but try it and see how crazy it is for yourself.
Thank you for reading through my build. I have not elaborated much on masteries, runes, and such because I am terribly lazy! Tell me in the comments what you think of this build and please do try it out before you negatively comment.
