Greetings summoners,

Everyone welcome Olaf, the Berserker into League of Legends. Olaf has many favorable traits: He wields two big axes, a long beard, and a belt buckle with much girth. He is adept at killing people. He dances like a Viking: A techno-loving, shirtless Viking.



Olaf plays much like a melee DPS champion, with the added benefit of growing more powerful even while only building bonus health. He’s also extremely adept at sticking to single targets, which is why I believe Frozen Mallet is such a powerful option on him. You should be one of the first two champions into the fight for your team and aim to kill the squishiest champion you can. Work your way up from the bottom, turn on Ragnarok, and don’t take “no” for an answer.

As mentioned, Frozen Mallet is your best friend. I believe that building clutch DPS stats like Life Steal and Critical Chance are also extremely important. If you can find a balance between taking damage at 20% health and Life Stealing to remain at that point, you’ll find yourself ripping up your opponents. Balancing your passive for durability and damage output won’t be easy, but if you tread the fine line between insanity and foolishness, you’ll be rewarded.

My skill order is:

  1. Undertow
  2. Vicious Strikes
  3. Vicious Strikes
  4. Reckless Swing
  5. Vicious Strikes
  6. Ragnarok
  7. Vicious Strikes
  8. Reckless Swing
  9. Vicious Strikes
  10. Reckless Swing
  11. Ragnarok
  12. Reckless Swing
  13. Reckless Swing
  14. Undertow
  15. Undertow
  16. Ragnarok
  17. Undertow
  18. Undertow

My item build, along with some other recommend items are:
  • Doran’s Shield + Health Potion
  • Phage – Frozen Mallet
  • Mercury Treads
  • Stark’s Fervor
  • Elixirs of Fortitude and Agility
  • Atma’s Impaler
  • Guardian Angel
  • Warmog’s Armor
  • Sunfire Cape
  • Banshee’s Veil
  • Youmuu’s Ghostblade
