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.
Sorcery YES TO SPAM
Deadliness YES AD
Weapon Expertise YES ARPENDefense
Perseverance Sometimes good if you get poke too much in lane
Durability MUST ----> Veteran's Scars MUST
Unyielding You are Olaf. You charge.
Block You are Olaf. You charge.
Tenacious NO ONE STOPS YOU EVEN YOU HAVE NO Ragnarok
Juggernaut More hp = Profit
Legendary Armor You can either take this or Good Hands
Honor Guard MUST
Greater Mark of Attack Damage
Greater Seal of Armor
Greater Glyph of Scaling Magic Resist
Greater Quintessence of Health Regeneration
AD Mark = OP and last hits.
Armor Seals = Bruiser
MR18 Glyphs = Bruiser
HPR Quint = This can be changed into MS/AD/ARPEN quints. I just love this so that I can sustain in lane easier while using Reckless Swing to harrass.
Teleport split push/gank op
Flash best summoner in the whole game
Ghost BROMACIA + Ghost = OP
Heal not recommended but can be used for some
Cleanse why do you need this.
-> Because Undertow is your only ranged ability, you might not want to get harassed too much.
-> OP POTS.
-> This is best sustain.
-> If you want to use Q but no more mana.
sight ward -> Buy a ward, save a life.
-> You might need this if enemy is a pain in the ***.
-> Against AP Top. Also if AP Mid got snowballed.
-> Against AD Top. Also if AD Mid got snowballed.
EITHER ONE WITH:
-> CDR ON TP and GHOST BEST.
-> SLOW AUTOATTACKS + AXE = NO RUNS.
-> BEST ITEM IN THE WHOLE GAME
-> ANTI ADC + HP + Armor BEST
-> Super ANTI ADC
-> OP AXE + AUTO ATTACKS. HP.
-> Armor is good. The passive is the one that makes you so OP.
-> If no one buys this in your team, its ok to buy this since you are diving to carries.
-> REBIRTH OF THE VIKING.
locket of iron solari -> The shield it gives from it's active is really good in teamfight against AOE comps
-> Seriously. If no one buys this in your team, you're screwed. Just buy it for your team.
Pros / Cons
Even though your Undertow's slow fades over duration, it is still a threat to every player.
Spam your Q, pick up and throw again to catch an enemy.
In a teamfight, run to the enemy ADC and massacre him/her. Use Ragnarok and Ghost if necessary. Throw everything at the ADC. Remember that you can brawl like a barbarian.
Laning Phase against Champions
- Juke her Vault Breaker. You don't need extra damage from her. Once juked, use Reckless Swing to punish her.
- Try not to get harrassed by her Excessive Force.
- Use Undertow on her face if she try to harrass you when you farm.
- Punish him with Reckless Swing for farming.
- Brawl him with Vicious Strikes and Reckless Swing to show him that he can't brawl with you.
- Stop chasing if he attempt to run away with Highlander and with above 20% HP.
