Hey guys, I'm Meteos, the jungler on Cloud 9 and this is my Olaf guide. Olaf is one of the strongest junglers in the game right now because of his strong early game and late game scaling. I'll try to share my Olaf knowledge with you so that you can try him out yourself!

In the early game, evaluate all of the lanes to decide which ones are stronger and which ones are weaker. If you have mostly stronger lanes that can push in your opponents, start with a [img=items/dorans-blade.png] and try to invade on the enemy jungler around level 2 or 3. Make sure that your laners will be able to help you at the same time or before the enemy laners, or else you might find yourself getting collapsed on and without flash, it can be really hard to get away from that. If you have weaker lanes, start with [img=items/hunters-machete.png] and farm up as much as you can. You can hold your own in pretty much any jungle duel if you get invaded by their jungler, but watch out if their laners go missing because if you get caught by multiple people in the jungle it's easy to die due to not having flash. Build [img=items/spirit-stone.png] and [img=items/boots-of-speed.png] then work on getting [img=items/spirit-of-the-ancient-golem.png] as soon as possible.

Once you get your ultimate and [img=items/spirit-of-the-ancient-golem.png], you're pretty strong and you should look to gank any lanes that are over extended. The easiest targets for Olaf to gank are champions without escape abillities because you're really fast with ghost and can't be CC'd with your ultimate. Once you get [img=items/ninja-tabi.png] you can tower dive really easily and should look to dive any lane that's pushed up and low hp. Continue to make plays in the enemy jungle near your strong lanes and try to snowball any advantages that you get. Time enemy buffs and invade them whenever possible. Olaf can do dragon pretty quickly but he takes a lot of damage from it so it's better to do it with your team.

Late game, you're pretty much just a big meat shield for your team. You still good a good amount of damage through your base values and your ultimate, but your main purpose is to soak up as much damage as possible. Figure out if their team does mostly physical or magic damage and build accordingly.

In team fights as Olaf, you want to rush into their team and try to kill their back line carries. Use your ultimate when you think you won't be immediately focused and killed. It makes you deal a lot of damage but you also take a lot as well. Do as much damage to the other team and then run away when you get low on health. Remember to auto attack as much as possible to make use of the lifesteal from [img=skills/olaf/w.png] and attack speed from [img=skills/olaf/p.png].

Thanks for reading the guide, I hope you learned something from it and good luck with your future Olaf endeavors ! Follow me on twitter @meteoslol or my stream at twitch.tv/meteos if you want to see more of my gameplay.
