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 is best when he jungles, but I do not like to jungle with him. This guide will help (hopefully) all the people who are like me and do not like to jungle him. It will focus on what to do in two different scenarios. The really easy lane in which you can gank the opposing champions and the farm gold cause you cannot gank them.
The masteries I took were 21/0/9. These are common and are used on most other champions. The exhaust and ghost masteries are picked to get an easy gank or to get away. The buff duration is useful because you will be wanting to get the buffs.

The runes you will be taking are Armor Penetration, dodge, and Crit Chance. These runes enable Olaf to easily survive and gank in lane.

The summoner spells that i take are exhaust and ghost. These spells are common in many champions. They are helpful at slowing down and catching up to champions and running away from them.
There are two ways to build Olaf. One way is the easy lane way and the other is the get gold way. If you are being fed then I would get E whenever you can and then get W and Q. If you are not being fed then I would get Q then W and then E, or get Q then E then W. The ax throw is very helpful begin it can be used to farm gold faster which is VERY important to Olaf. If you are being fed then getting E is very helpful at doing extra damage against the enemy champions. The Q can just be used to slow.
The items I picked are common items on Olaf. Dorans Shield and good because you gives everything you need to stay in lane longer. The health regen, extra health, and the damage are good on Olaf. You can get multiple boots. I would get Berserker boots if you are just in it for the gold. I would get Boots of Swiftness if you are dominating your lane, and I would get ninja tabi for the dodge but your runes give you enough to begin with. You do not need mercury treads because your ultimate can help with that. One of the most important items to get on Olaf is frozen mallet. It is almost required to play a good Olaf, or so I think it is. After, Frozen Mallet you will want to get Phantom Dancer. Phantom Dancer gives attack speed, movement speed, and crit chance. The attack speed and crit chance are very good because you can hit fast and hard end game. Next you get a warmogs. Your W ability will benefit greatly from this. It will also be helpful when getting Atmas which is next. Atmas passive is very good to get with this item. Finally, you will get Starks Fervor to top it all off.
