This build shows you how to play Olaf as a high damage dealer with a lot of hp.

Why these summoner spells?
Olaf can't stun or do anything else to keep fast enemies from running. Undertow can slow but it costs a lot of mana at the begin. So Exhaust and Ghost are very helpful to kill. And if Olaf is in trouble he can use Ghost + Ragnarok to run.

Why this skill order?
As I said Undertow costs a lot of mana. Level 1 is enough to slow the enemies down.
Reckless Swing is much better to kill than Undertow. It deals huge TRUE damage and the self damage is nothing when Olaf uses Vicious Strikes. So it's the best to level those up at the begin.

Why these items?
Warmog's is one of the best health items and you have to buy it at the begin to get stacks fast. After you bought Frozen Mallet your life should soon be near 4000 health so the Impaler will give you 80 damage. Vicious Strikes will get stronger with more health, too. Soul Shroud gives you even more health and cooldown reduce so you can use your spells more often. And with the Ghoustblade no one will ever escape from Olaf.

How to play?
Don't use Undertow too often at the begin. It will drain your mana and you need it. On level 6 you can kill an enemy near the tower if your mate is a good damage dealer. You shouldn't go gang. Olaf is a good tower killer and he can escape if the enemies want to stop him.
