I recently played a game against an Olaf in solo top lane. All I can say is that he made my life quite miserable. What champion can counter him effectively?

Apparently, Teemo with a full page of Def runes and nice timing on that blind can shut down melee AD's quite well.

No, reckless swing will hit through blind.

I don't think so, that's where the page of def runes come in. That aside, you should still be able to freely harass him. Most melee AD know better than to try to attack a Teemo when they're blinded. If he still comes, run, blind, and move quick after the axe throw.

But the def runes wont protect against true damage... But i understand that you can kite him. Its just when u get hit by the cleaver you are sorta gonna die since teemo is quite squishy.....

any ranged solo top counters olaf pretty hard. corki, teemo, and kennen come to mind. just start with boots+3 and avoid his throws, and he won't be able to close the gap to land the true damage.

Surprisingly enough AD Kennen shuts Olaf down hard. A couple doran's blades into a wriggles and you can harass him all day and zone him. Just E away if he ults and tries to attack you then turn > stun > win all day lol.

Vlad is actually a decent counter as well. Just gotta play conservative and poke him. Make sure u dont get hit by too many axes.
