Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Here is a strong build for Olaf an very strong Tanky DPS champ like Jax or Garen i really like
this champ and want to share my knowledge with you. He was used to be nice guy but then he took an arrow to the knee.( look at his artwork)
Armor pen helps you with Creepping/Farming and poking the enemy with auto attacks.
Armor defenitly needet for Top cause you play against Bruiser in the main case (Bruiser = Tanky-DamgeDealer).
M.Res(per lvl) is very usefull because it gives you a nice amount of M.Res per level and you dont have to fear that much magic dmg late and when you play against an AP-Top it'll helps you with laning.
HP Quints for a nice amount of HP early and fits perfect with my masteries (Defense tree= Veteran's Scars).
Pros / Cons
CC Immmunity with Ultimate
Lifesteal and Slow
Some Mana problems in early game
E costs Life
Ill skill E first cause its an high amount of True Dmg( you cant reduce True Dmg) and it costs only a lil bit Life.
After lvl 9 ill max W second for high bonus dmg and lifesteal if activated(with W on lvl 5 you can regenerate nearly your complete Life).
Q last cause the slow isnt that neccesary with frozen mallet and the dmg isnt rly high.
I dont pickcause the slow from Frozen is strong enough and if need to slow a target thats a bit away ill use Q instead of it Ill pick for dealing extra dmg or killing someone with low health.
Ill pick you could pick instead but it isnt neccesarry with that strong slows.
Frozen Mallet : 100% Slow CHANCE on Autohit and E
Mercury Treads: -35% CC duration (very nice if ult is on CD)
Yomuu's Ghostblade : Crit,CD.Reduction,ArmorPen.You can Activated it for A.Speed and Movement Speed
Infinity Edge: High amount of AD,Crit, Sets Crit dmg from 200% to 250% dmg
Warmog's Armor: High amount of HP,HP Regen.!!!Neccesary for Atma's Impaler!!!
Atma's Impaler: 2% of your HP are addet to your AD
Creeping / Jungling
He can farm very nice with his E he can kill creeps out of Attack range or Deal much Dmg to lane enemys and his Q he deal a nice amount of Dmg to a Creep Mass.
Hes the Tank of your Team you Slow your Enemys with your Q,E and Autohits(For E and Autohits you need a Frozen Mallet).You dont care about CC with you're Ult and you just destroy little Imps like Veigar or Teemo.
His Ult is the Best Anti CC spell and got Buffed last patch.
His E is an Unique instant True Dmg skill that only Costs a bit life
His Passive gives him 1% A.Speed for each 1% HP he loses
