Abilities

Berserker Rage : (passif): For each 1% of health missing, Olaf's attack speed is increased by 1%.

This will allow you to 1vs1 anyone and to survive most team fights, it works great with hp gear.

Undertow : Damage: 65/110/165/200/245 + 30% of Attack Damage
Slow: 24 / 28 / 32 / 36 / 40 %

It used to have a ****py slow until you put 3 rank in it but now it slows for 24% at the first level so it's worth getting it when you're lvl 2 instead of Vicious Strike

Vicious Strikes : Damage: 12/18/24/30/36 (+ 0.4/0.7/1/1.3/1.6% of Max Hp)
Lifesteal: 9/12/15/18/21% Spellvamp: 9/12/15/18/21% Last 6 seconds

What can i say, i bet any melee hero in the game would love to have that ability, use it everytime, right before using reckless swing to engage and while fighting. You will spam it with reckless as much as you can.
Armor penetration/cooldown runes, masteries, your ulti (10/20/30 armor penetration) along with hp gears in this build are meant to maximize the damage and therefore the lifesteal.
You will be able to get a nice hp regen from it as soon as you are lvl 8

Reckless Swing : Damage dealt: 100/160/220/280/340
Damage taken: 40/64/88/112/136

This is the ability we will max as fast as we can (3sec cooldown only when its maxed! 2,25 with items and runes) and i guarantee you it'll be deadly effective. It has a very short cooldown we will shorten even more.
Use it to engage, use it to dps like crazy, use it to get every kills, use it.
And don't underestimate the "true damage" effect, it boost dmg like crazy.

Ragnarok(Ulti) : Immune to disables, Flat damage absorption:25/45/65
Passive : armor penetration 10/20/30



Olaf can either be a carry tank dps or full ranged tank which i like to use personally. You Wanna start off withand 1 health pot.

When you get back, you wanna get aand someif you have enough money.

You wanna use vicious strike as much as possible to farm so you can go buy aand some wards so you can check out the jungle or in case your getting ganked a bit.

Olaf's top priority is to harass and farm at the same time with undertow and vicious strikes. Reckless swing isn't good early game as it is very powerful with the true damage when you fight endgame since of it's true damage.

You wanna get someSo you can get out of those slows and stuns faster =]. Olaf stacking armor and magic resist can make him a godly tank with his ultimate.

One great item on Olaf's build isbecause of the uniqueness of it's stats and abilities plus its active.

As you progress the game, you wanna get aor afor your tanky position.

Once you get all the items that give you the armor and hp you want to get anfor the dmg that olaf can get from it's sweet passive.

At last for an extra life getfor you can tank even more.

When team fighting or ganking



Always use vicious strikes and reckless swing to do great damage to the carry. Ultimate if needed to get away if your losing a teamfight unless you want to save your teammate and sacrifice yourself.

Usually I wouldn't die in this situation since my team carries do enough damage that i survive with about 700 hp.

Overall in Olaf


Even though tanky dps is a great choice for Olaf, Tank Olaf himself can destroy people also.

This was my build on tank olaf. Please rate and comment!
