Olaf's greatest ability is to be able to take on 1-2 champions and come out with more health then the opponent. His ult allows him to enter combat with only a sliver of health and still win the battle. He can take down and chase any squishy champion in your path while turning around and dealing with the tanks afterwards.

*****************************************************************************************************************************************
Ghost (in my opinion) is one of the best spells to give your champion. It is good early, mid, and late game. In the beginning it is very useful to escape ganks and traps. In mid and late game it is good for chasing down enemies with that tiny bit of health.
Ignite isn't one of my favorite choices but it is very useful early and mid game to taunt of finish off an enemy. Also with "Burning Embers" as one of my masteries it can give you an edge early game to pick off a champion.

*****************************************************************************************************************************************
Undertow is my second favorite spell of Olaf's. It is very useful for taunting at the begging of a match and later on will become useful for chasing down champions. This axe can be thrown very far and on impact slows the target for you to run in there and finish them off. Another good use is to lure champions out of their turret range since you can throw it far and taunt them to come get you.
Vicious Strikes is my favorite spell of Olaf's because it allows you to stay in battle along with archers and tanks. In late game when you have Malody and Bloodythirster You can go from 200 health to 2000 heaath i a matter of seonds with this spell. This can buy you valuable time and if going hand to hand with a tank allows you to to take his damage and deal damage right back.

Reckless Swing

Is personally my least favorite of his abilities. Although it can come in handy at the beginning of a game (like taunting or a quick finishing move) it really doesnt do much damage towards the end. That is why I chose to finish this spell off at the end of your levels.
Out of every single ult this isn't one of my favorites but that is your opinion. In Olaf's case though this can be the determination between a kill and a death. If used while you have low life you can fully restore your health with the combination of Vicious Strikes.

*****************************************************************************************************************************************

How To Properly Attack With Olaf


Throw your axe first to slow them down.
Activate Ragnarok before you make the first hit.
Then activate Vicious Strikes so you can streal as much life as possible during the attack.
Use Reckless Swing if they are still trying to kill you.

If they try to run then throw your axe to slow them down and use ghost to catach up. If needed use ignite while chasing to give you a little edge up. (Remember once olaf is between level 15-18 he can take quite a bit of damage so don't be afraid to chase him past the turrets).
