Berserkers, as they tout themselves, are warriors who channel fury deep from their cores, unleashing pure and savage wrath upon their enemies. This fearsome evolution is a product of their unforgiving home, Lokfar - a barren tundra where all creatures must vie bitterly for every resource. Olaf belonged to a seafaring clan known for ruthlessly pillaging any and all villages within reach of their dragon-crested longboats. The last time he saw his icy home, Olaf was embarking on an expedition to pioneer and plunder a distant land known only to legend. However, while underway, a terrible storm sprung up and Olaf and his crew were thrown to the mercy of a roiling and pitiless sea. His ship destroyed, his crew nowhere to be found, Olaf miraculously washed up untold miles from ''friendly'' waters on the foreign shores of Valoran, south of Demacia. This unfamiliar place stunned and frightened the Berserker, for Lokfar is not privy to such potent magicians. Approaching them, Olaf hoped that they could use their mysterious powers to send him back to his people. A bargain was struck. Olaf would use his awesome prowess as a warrior to serve the unusual wars of Valoran in the League of Legends, and in exchange the sorcerers would find him a way to return. Despite his participation in the League, Olaf knows better than to trust the ''finger wagglers'' that run the Institute of War. He deliberately keeps details of his life and home from them. After all, with enough information, they would most certainly find the Lokfarians and dominate them as they have dominated all of Valoran, keeping both quietly -- and unwittingly -- in their thrall. Beware the war cry of the Berserker. What surges toward you is unyielding, free from the shackles of reason.

Introduction

This is a tank build for Olaf that i've been using for a while and I love it. I love the fact that you have a large amount of health which really helps in teamfights. You might think that having alot of hp will get you eaten up by Madred's but with the Thornmail and your own skills you shouldn't have a hard time suriving.

Items

I love to start out with some HP reg and it makes you able to use reckless swing more often without getting damaged too much when spamming it. When you're able to use reckless swing more often you are also able to get creepkills easier which will get you your Phage fast. After this you build your Phage into a frozen mallet for surviveability and a 100% chance on slowing them with each hit. This will help you support your team by having hp and slowing the enemies. Since you don't have alot of armor yet your next item will be a Thornmail. It will help you against those annoying autoattackers and it works so good with a Warmog's. BUT, if you are up against lots of high damaging casters you should get a Force of Nature instead. After that you get your second Warmog's for the incredible health it will give you (over 5000) and it works so well with Vicious Strikes. If you even got so far as the second Warmog's and the game continues after that you should get Atma's Impaler because it will give you lots of damage and that extra crit chance to make you drop some of those squishy mages and dpsers really fast + the extra 45 armor that can be very usefull.

Summary

This is NOT a completed build but I will publish it for advice and suggestions about how to improve it further and because I want to know how it works out for you.
