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 olaf build is to be tanky but at the same time to carry. olaf can be beasty!!!
Back to Top

Runes

These runes are aimed to get movement speed so u can farm efeciently without exposing yourself long enough for your enemy to do damage to you. it also you in early game to escape from sticky situations. the armor and magic resistance. enables you to handle damage but still remain stable in lane.
Back to Top

these items are aimed for you to be durrable early game that way you can last throughout the whole game. early game dominace and late game durability and heavy damage as well.
Back to Top

Skill Sequence

the skill sequence really is to max out your "q" or your axe. if your enemy is squishy or you feel confident in lane and need to scare your enemy out of range experience or scare them to stop poking so hard. you can max out your true damage "e". I personaly max out my axe first. helps with slow and drops the enemy team down in health slowly but steadily until im ready to initiate. If you find yourself bein denied, MAX OUT YOUR AXE!! it can knock out entire minion ways in right times. help u to not fall far behind in farm.
Back to Top

Summoner Spells

these abilities help you get out of sticky situations along with your ulty. ghost is used to escape or to get a couple extra hits on an enemy. if u think that exhaust would be better. i say no because if u are chasing an enemy in s traight line. u can chase, throw axe, and as u run along u pick it up again and continue to throw it. its a good slow. so no exhaust is needed.

Pros / Cons

    Pros: can dominate agains anyone!(except gp withought exhaust)

    BEAST!!
Cons: gank planks movements speed and bs crits.
