Hi, welcome to my Olaf build guide. Olaf was one of my first jungle champions I purchased but I eventually grew out of him and started playing Lee and Jarvan more, but with the new changes he is a very fun top laner. Olaf is super tanky and with his new passive on his ult gives him even more tankiness, he is also very good at chasing and disengaging. With his strong poke on his Q and E and his great sustain with his W makes him a good counter pick to a lot of the popular top laners.

I run a very standard rune page for Olaf, attack damage is probably the best marks for him another option could be attack speed but his passive gives him attack speed already. Armor seals is never a bad option on any champion. Magic resist glyphs is the same as seals just some extra tankiness that is good on anyone. Now for the quints, I chose move speed so he can stick to people with his Q but other options are Quints of Health, Quints of Attack Damage, Quints of Armor, and Quints of Magic Resist.

Olaf's Q undertow had its damage reduced by ten which isn't a big deal because the slow was increased so your strongest ability to trade with in lane is still your E Reckless swing since it does true damage (Reckless swing's damage was also reduced but since it does true damage it is a better tool to trade with). Maxing this first is also the best idea but always get a point in W vicious strikes early to stay in lane for as long as possible. Max undertow second for the highest damage output.

For the start a Doran's Shield is good since it gives you 10 health regen which synergizes well with your W but a rejuv bead 5 pots is always good against someone like Yorick who will constantly harass you. You could build a Ravenous Hydra since it does give you health regen, AD, and life steal but I prefer to rush health items since his passive and W work extremely well with High HP. That is why I rush either a spirit visage or Sunfire cape since it gives health but also early defensive stats. You could exchange the Sunfire Cape for the Ravenous Hydra but always get a Spirit Visage since it increases healing abilities and gives Hp, and Hp regeneration. Final items can really be anything you want after you get a Spirit Visage i like getting a Warmog into a Randuins Omen since they give passive that help Olaf with dueling, but you could get a Frozen Mallet, Frozen Heart, or Frozen Fist (Iceborn Gauntlet). Boots are very standard Mercury treads for high magic damage and cc team or a fiddlesticks, or Ninja Tabis if you are against an physical damage team. I originally had atmas impaler as the final items but frozen mallet is much better on him thank you for the input yoshiman.

Thank you for reading my guide please make comments to help me make it even better.

Comments coming soon!
