Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Olaf dominates the top lane best. All you need to win is caps lock. He is great at rughing to the carry thanks to his rediculous ult. He is imo the funnest champ because oh the insane amount of faceroll. My guide will teach you the tips and tricks to being an unstoppable force.
Things to know:
cc = crowd control
olaf = hue
hue = olaf
ATS = attackspeed
AD = attackdamage
MR = magic resist
ArP = armour penetration (lols)
cs = creep score
cdr = cooldown reduction
For runes I get ArP marks, Armour seals, MR per level glyphs, and ArP quints.
The ArP scales well with lafs ultamite making you unleashe butloads oof damage because of the pure penetration (lols). The armour seals are greeat for lane tankyness because top lane (where you should be) often consists of a bruiser so armour will counter him. The MR per level is great for those AP carries who you will face later in the game, greatly reducing their damage.
Attack damage marks
CDR reduction glyphs
Attack damage Quints
(not in any order im just listing some runes you may prefer)
My for masteris I go 16 15 0 making sure to get lifesteal in offensive tree. The 15 points in defense tree is to maintain your tankyness while steal pooping all over your enemies. Some people prefer 0 9 21 for the cdr. But my build has plenty of cdr.
-Big damagez -Easily kited
-Tanky -Gets beat by vladimir
-Great at taking out carry -Cant really think of much cons
-He throws axes
-Best skin ever
For summoners I choose:
Ghost - Great synergy with Reverie and his ulti
Ignite - Best spell ever, finish off those tryndameres after ulti
teleport - Good for saving teamates who get dove, or, getting back to lane to farm
flash - Good for escaping, but ghost is better
exhaust - Good with the slow from your Q
Seriously dont get these:
Clairvoyance - Thats janna's spell
Revive - Olaf never dies
Fortify - Can you even get that anymore?
Cleanse - Save that for the carry it gets a 4 / 10 i guess it could be useful cuz its like a second ulti ina way and if u get quicksilver sash you cant be CC'd
These items are good depending on the team comp
~ Randuins Omen - if you had to shutdown a carry with one item it would be this one. Also nice cdr
~ Bloodthirster - your super fed and can sell wriggles to get this
~ Force of Nature - Le blanc is fed get this replace wriggles lantern
~ Quick silver sash - never again will you get chain CC'd
~ Youmoos Ghost blade - Some people like it i dont. Although nice active aswell as cdr.
In team fights it is your job to turn on hero mode pop your ulti and rush that carry. As soon as the ad carry is dead get the AP carry. Then you kill whatever you can.
