Introduction

This is my first build for one of my favourite champions. I try to build tanky DPS Olaf who deals lots of damage and is hard to kill


Guide Top

Runes

For my runes I take armor pen. marks for more damage which really helps if you're building little bit tanky. I take armor seals for better surviving which helps a lot in early game and if you are jungling. I also take attack speed glyphs for heling more often from each hit if you buyed wriggle's lantern and later the bloodthirster.

Masteries

I go 21-9-0 for more AD, and armor pen. and a little bit more armor which gives you i think the best choice for Olaf.

Items

As I said i try to build tanky Olaf so I'm not going full AD. I start with vampiric scepter to heal on minions so i don't have to recall often. As a second item i buy boots of speed to move more fast and to save money for Wriggle's lantern i don't buy whole Berseker's Greaves, I buy them just after the lantern. Later some additional armor and damage can be useful so i recomend buying Atma's impaler but if you are not doing well with surviving you can buy Warmog's armor earlier. After that i buy phage and then upgrade it to Frozen mallet which gives you great health and some damage that you will need. Next i buy zeal, upgrade it to Phantom's dancer, Warmog's Armor (if you were doing good and didn't buy it before Atma's Impaler). As a last Item i pick the bloodthister instead of Wriggle's Lantern that you should sell.

How to play?

I play Olaf on lanes more than as a jungler so i will tell you how to play on top/bot lanes.
First when you picked your Q you go into the bushes and throw the axe through them it's a big chance that you hit and slow enemies and if you will work good with your teammate its a big chance to get first blood. On level 9 i ususally go for blue and red and gank mid. Ganking with olaf is very easy because you can slow enemies with your Q and let your teammates catch the enemy. On teamfights always try to hit as many enemies as you can with your axe so that will give your team time to escape or a moment to catch some slowed enemies. Always try to kill blue buff because Olaf's mana isn't good and you can be missing a little mana to your Q and then the enemy with 10 HP escape, so that will be not cool. In erly game play aggresive so that your enemies will be sticked to a turret. Remember to put a wriggle's totem in the bushes by the river to see ganks and have time to recal or get back to a turret.
