Hi guys,

I recently started jungling with Olaf. I have jungled with Trundle, Skarner and Amumu before and everything went well. My masteries + runes felt greatly combined. Unfortunately it doesn't feel smooth with Olaf.

My runes for Olaf are:
Armor pen reds
Flat armor seals
Magic resist per level glyphs
Armor pen quints

My Masteries are 1/8/21.
I start with Cloth armor and 5 health pots, i build it into wriggles, go for merc treads, then trinity force, warmogs, atmas and Force of nature.

I feel that, untill atleast late game, I just lack damage, movement speed, and attack speed (yes I'm aware of Olaf's passive and how he should be played). I just feel that my jungling isn't goign as fast/good as it should, and I really think my build isn't good at all.

Has anyone got some tips on how to improve my jungling with him?

Thanks.

There's not enough farm in the jungle for Olaf.

He's one of the most gear dependent champions in this game.

Try AS marks or AD quints. They will only help with your jungle though. Your damage outside of your jungle will be worse.

Ok, I'll give that a try Searz, thanks for your help.

Does my build/masteries suit Olaf? Cause I've just tried changing my build a bit, cause Merc Treads seems a bit overkill cause of his ult. Ofcourse if the team has alot of cc it's worth getting them, but I tried berserkers and instead of a FoN i rushed a Youmuu's for the extra AS and CDR.

Is there anything I need to change about my items or masteries?

Thanks for the help so far.

Your runes and masteries are good.
I'd say the problem is that Olaf a kind of a weak jungler atm.
"I saw [Twilight: Eclipse] in theaters with a girl I was dating at the time. I spent more time staring at my toes and wiggling them than I did watching this abomination. When Edward proposed to Blank Face, I finally looked up with a revelation.
I blurted out loud, in a dead silent theater full of teenage girls on opening night "Wait a minute, Edward has no blood flow. How does he get an erection?" I heard several men laughing, and had several girls turn and stare at me.

I did not get laid that night." - Berengier817

I just don't jungle him any more.

Solo top Olaf all day.
