Runes

This rune set on olaf is designed to deal as much damage as possible. The armour pen. and the crit damage add to this by a surprising amount.


Guide Top

Masteries

This mastery build is standard for melee orientated pwnage characters. Why? Because it works.

Items

This item set gives Olaf massive attack speed and massive damage. When you combine this with his vicious strikes ability, his life steal becoems ridunculous. You can easily take on 2 champions at once and win due to his ultimate. The slows from Frozen Mallet become useful as soon as you get it.
The Black Cleaver at the end can be substituted for a bloodthirster if your fighting enemies that do not have a lot of armour. It's worth noting that with these runes, Olafs ulti and the items shown above, Olaf bypasses about 120 of the opponents armour.

Team Work

As always, stick with your team and you'll win but go off alone and you'll probably get ganked 5-1. If you ever do get caught on your own, your ulti mixed with Ghost can get you out of pretty much anything the enemy throws at you.

The main thing you should focus on with Olaf is enemy mages and ranged carries. It can be said that Olaf is the bane of every ranged champion in the game (think of the massive damage output and the infinite amount of slows). Jump into a battle after the tank and you'll probably live until the end due to Olaf's life steal and awesomeness.
Don't bother trying to run away from the battle either if its an even battle. Olaf is GOD when he is at extremely low HP levels, if you stick in the battle you might just end up restoring all your HP anyway, and single handedly win the team fight.

Creeping / Jungling

Dont.
OK, occasionaly i'd go and get a blue buff, but Olaf really is a champion killer, especially early game when you can burst over 1/4 of most champions HP in one hit.


Guide Top

Pros / Cons

Pro's:
You murder any champion 1vs1.
You murder any champions 1vs2.
You can escape ganks using your ultimate very easily.
YOUR A NORSEMAN.
Enemy champions underestimate your strength when your at low HP. If one champion tries to attack you when your about half HP... they will pay the price.

Con's:
Undertow really isnt a damage dealing ranged ability. Use it just to slow opponents at range that are trying to run away.
You'll probably get focused because of how awesomely epic Olaf is. If its a massive teamfight, join with the tank and not before. If you dont have a tank (you really should) just run in and smack the ranged characters upside the head.
