Not Updated For Current Season
Hey guys welcome to my edition of Prolaf, or as most of you call him "Olaf". I feel that with this guide you will have really good success as I have in the past. A lot of other builds either focus to much on survivability or to much on attack speed. In my opinion both of these are extremely situational and can mess up your game in the long run. To counter both these builds I have decided that attack speed coupled with a bit of lifesteal, and a lot of good damage items makes for an amazing Prolaf. Some of you may prefer to build survivability and I understand, because Olaf is often focused for being an auto attacker. However with this build you'll see a lot more kills on the score board if everything goes swimmingly.
For runes it's a pretty basic setup. Armor pen Marks and Quints allowing you to rape squishes HARD and in my opinion it's a lot more beneficial then using attack speed. The reason for this is because with this build you'll pick up plenty attack speed anyways. For Seals you want dodge to piss off people like Tryndamere, Jax and pretty much anyone whos tries to auto attack you. Lastly we have Glyphs for CD reduction. This is mainly for yourReckless Swing you so can destroy the enemy carry.
I'm not going to give you a bunch of reasons for why each item has been chosen, because trust me and just try it out. All you need to know is that Frozen Mallet is REQUIRED. Its gives you lots of health, AD and a slow. The rest of the items are simply for AD, some lifesteal and attack speed. Some people might think that lifesteal on Olaf is useless because ofViscous Strikes and your passive but with extra attack speed your passive isn't AS important and the lifesteal will give that extra HP when your raping the enemy team carry. The Guardian Angel is completely situational if your getting a lot of kills and find it unnecessary buy an Atmas Impaler for some armor and an amazing unique passive giving you more AD.
In the early game stages you want to always conserve your mana. If someone like Viegar for example gets to ballsy and starts to push, throw yourAxe at him. If that doesn't do anything and they continue to be aggressive tell your teammate your going in for their squishy and hope he backs you up. Every time you go in for a kill makes sure to throw yourAxe first, then pop your Viscous Strikes andReckless Swing the **** out of them. If your teammate is doing their job after this they should be dead within 2 auto attacks or even better they've died. If you notice the mid lane getting pushed more than normal make sure to signal that your going to gank. Run in throw theAxe,Viscous Strike, thenReckless Swing. That mid is as good as dead.
When team fights occur make sure your not the one to initiate. Once the fight has begun throw yourAxe at their carry and go in and Reckless Swing. If you notice yourself taking to much damage pop yourUlt before things get worse. If the worst occurs and you get focusedUlty and run. Your team might hate you for it but if you feel you can hop back in rinse and repeat the process.
