Hey everyone! I wanted to put up my Olaf build that i use and works. All of my friends i la with have tried this build of mine and they say it works very well. This is also my very first guide to make on this wonderland of Mobafire. I've haven't seen that many good Olaf builds, sense i play Olaf or as i should say Brolaf as my main i thought it would be very good to make a build.
I will tell you what to do in beginning/middle/late game as Olaf. What runes you should get and why, Your items, and what skill points to get first.
This is my first guide so if there's anything i can fix please tell me and i will do it :)
Thanks :D

Greater mark of desolation

Greater Mark of Desolation

+1.66 Armor Pen

Armor pen is fantastic through out the game. It helps you destroy those really tanky people and go through the low armor that caster have to be able to do your maximum damage against your target. This will benefit you a lot late game with having this build as an Ot.

Greater Glyph of Shielding

+0.15 Magic Resist/per level(2.7 at lvl 18)

The Magic Resist for Olaf is really important to get to have a lot more survival against people like Veigar, Vlad, Lux, Annie, ect. It is really important against Jax and Nida. Although Nida shouldn't be a problem she can still put off enough damage to have her team mates finish you off. Magic Resist is clearly the best to have on Olaf. The per level rune's give you more magic resist in the late rune also so it is better to have later.
Greater Seal of defense

Greater Seal of Defense

+0.15 Armor/Per level(2.7 at lvl 18)

Armor on Olaf is nice to have. Especially if your in a lane against Udyr and Tyrndamere. This should buff you up against them turret shots and them minion hits that could get that last five damage to you. With armor you will also be able to tear minion after minion after minion while even tanking them.
Greater quintessence of Desolation

Greater Quintessence of Desolation

+3.33 Armor Pen

This is just to boost up your armor pen higher than it is already.

Those are the runes your should have as Olaf for this build. It will put him to his fullest against other champions.

Summoner Spells

Ghost: Ghost is an all around summoner ability for Olaf. This makes him a perfect escape artist when his is activated. He can also use while his ghost is active. This can also be used to chase down someone with low health.

Flash: Flash, used to get that final hit with a skill all the way around to escaping with 10hp left. Olaf is indeed my favorite champ to have flash on. He can flash in and use his and get that final blow so you can brag about it to the other team! :D

My build

This would be my build and what the final looks like. Running around with a lot hp and hella dmg with around 40-50% crit destroying everyone with my true damage. This is my recommended build for people.

Core Items

These item's are the ones you want to have for sure for this build. These core item's will make up most of your build. The mix with Warmog and Frozen Mallet going into your Impaler you should end up with around 3.5k HP and 220 AD. Frozen Mallet also slow's the target when you hit them so you can chase people really far and get that kill.

Optional Items

These are the optional items for this build. Stark's and Phantom dancer you should get if you plan on pushing the whole time. Sunfire cape and Randuin's are both good team fight items that are nice to have sometime's depending on the other team i would only get these and it would help against Warwick or Tyrn. I would use my build if i were you though.

Total Walkthrough

Level 1-6

k so first off your is what you what to get when you start. Put your first point into . You need to try to get to your lane as fast as you can cause you might be able to get a kill. You should end up in the bush closer to there tower. Don't do this if your gonna solo lane. Keep popping off and you should get a kill in no time. By now you should be level 2 so go ahead and put your next point into . This is going to help you chase down that enemy or if your health drops you can use it to get away. Go back and get your ,x2 , and . Now farm away and don't push till your at least level 6 where you can use + + to get away from the people chasing you after they show up and try to gank you. If you followed the build with the skill points you should be fine.

Level 7-11

Once your level 7 you should have around the items of . You need to start doing dragon,red buff, and blue buff. DO NOT forget to ask your jungler if you have may take there red buff or blue buff. Around level 8 start to gank for team they will need it a lot most likely. Be careful for people to gank you soon though especially if they got a jungler.

Key: Star's are the main places for wards.
Circle's are the optional places for wards.

Place wards in the spot's marked as star's in the picture above. Work on keeping those up through the whole match. If you can afford them it's the best for you and your team. Ask your team to help you out with the wards also. Make sure to do the dragon and Barron for sure though. Ward's are optional but they could ensure you a victory. Start jungling minions on your way to ganking so you can level n get gold. By lvl 9 or 10 your jungler shouldn't care at all. You should be getting a next in your build and eventually end up with an . Once your level 11 you will get your second level ulti and you will get more armor pen. witch will help you get those kills that you need to get farmed. Try to have at least 2 towers down by now if not 3. Tower's can get you that extra gold you need to get that new item. Dont forget to kill dragon every time it is back to be slain again. If you get the most of the dragon kills your team will excel in gold and items. Now you should be working on your Warmongs by getting either or . ( If you have enough).

Level 12-18

Level 12 is when you should start playing hardcore and go for those tower's while not getting yourself killed. Any non-Idiot should know what to do if you pay attention in the passage i said above. Farm farm and farm away till you get that warmong's armor and start farming the stats on it to get ready for that . Once you farm up enough to get the you will be pulling off hella damage for your stats. Around 225-250 damage plus the crit chance it gives you to have a chance to crit for 200% the damage. Push with your team and jungle till level 16 to get your new level on your ulti to max it out. Go ahead and get barron with your team make sure they do not have it warded. I would have a oricel when i went just incase (You might have to have one anyways cause of Twitch and Eve. Now you should be finishing up your impaler or working on your Veil. Now since you got barron hopefully you should be able to do that final push. Once you got that impaler it was GG already. Push and win. For me i usually win before i get my impaler >.< This build that you just went through should ensure you a victory's easy. Please tell me if there's anything i need to add. Video's will be added very soon. Thanks :)
