About Me!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Myself


Hello everyone! I am Uber101, also known by my IGN of Arogon. No, I am not a diamond player, I am someone who prefers casual modes and mostly plays normals. Although, even though I am not lcs worthy does not mean I am bad at the game. I started out maining support with a good amount of success, my favorite character being the then-op thresh. But, I was always interested in the jungle lane. Now, it is my favorite lane, and I go jungle practically every game. I am known for my unorthodox, non-meta picks, or more lately, my support tanks(which are kind of out of the meta anyway).

About the Champion!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Olaf was my JAM back in Season 3, before his buff. I would go from top to bot ganking lanes. After his buff, I thought he was a little lackluster. But with the changes to the Spirit of the Ancient Golem which give him "+25% Bonus health", I think his old 'BUILD HEALTH' build can return with magical awesomeness. He can be the tank with incredible chasing power like I loved him back in the day.

Pros/Cons

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pros

+ Amazing Tank!
+ Great Chaser!
+ Fast Jungling!
+ Good Damage Ratios!
+ Good Ganks!
Olaf has almost everything needed for a tanky jungler. Super fast jungling, which is rare for tanky jungles. His base damage ratios are fairly high. And, if you are good at hitting your q when flash is down, your ganks are basically secured.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Cons

- Relies heavily on skillshot.
- Must watch health with Reckless Swing.
- Must hit Undertow to gank properly. :(
You MUST be good at hitting your undertow or else your ganks will be near useless. Also, you should be careful of spamming your Reckless Swing as it DOES cost health.

Max "Q" first for the chasing potential and extra damage.
Take your "E" second for the insane true damage.
Lastly, Max your Vicious Strikes last because it doesn't do as much for you as your other abilities.
Get your Ult whenever you can, obviously.

// Masteries must support your build type, and this is an awesome, infinite-chasing tank! So taking 27 Defense, and 3 Utility is perfect!

Q: But, why not take some offensive masteries since you will already be so tanky?
// I don't believe in "TOO TANKY", you must fully support your build as Olaf.

Core Item Analysis

Code:

Items


Item Sequence

Spirit of the Ancient Golem
2000

Boots of Mobility
900

Iceborn Gauntlet
2700

Good for most junglers, they are also the cheapest boots. They are great for setting up ganks, you will want alacrity, and dodge enemy CC and skillshots so the passive isn't procked.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Great jungler item with the new changes. Faster clear, good base stats and passives. In fact, this build was made for that new "+25% Bonus Health" passive, which got my team and I playfully calling the item "The Health Deathcap".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
After a few games, I saw the INSANE damage and utility this item brings to the table, as I don't see Olaf as an AMAZING teamfighter, this really makes him great!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tons of health for an extra 250 health because of our SotAG passive. Also, the health regen. passive is pretty awesome. You usually should not pick this as your 3rd item for your core, because it's effect is almost non-existant with no armor/mr.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jungle Pattern

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I like to start blue, then rush wraiths, and red buff. After that, you can promptly gank a lane or farm some more, whatever you like.
