I see him played now and then. He doesn't seem like some of the super flashy champions like we are seeing released now a days, but how is he? What is his role? Who out classes him in that role?

Are there some things unique to him that no one else really brings to the field?

Is he worth learning?

Thanks!

He's a mean top lane pick who supposedly counters a good number of tops.

How is he like Poppy? I find Poppy very hard to play, I know that she can get insane later on but I find she has such a weak early game you really have to be pro poppy to get her there.

Olaf seems like he has a decent early game, his burst also seems a lot easier to pull off because it has some range to it and you don't put yourself in as much danger poking with it.

He's really good at trading in lane.

Despite not having a true gap closer he translates really well into late game because of his ult. With ghost you should be able to stick to the AD carry with no issues.

Basically, true damage and ult

Olaf is pretty boss. He's a lot of fun to play top or in the jungle tho I don't like to jungle with him too much because I suck at tossing his axe.

In lane his E does a ton of true damage for a portion of his health. It really sucks to be a melee champ agains olaf. Trying to farm and getting blasted with true damage.

His ult is great later in the game since you become immune to CC and can just go after whoever.

I can't tell you about Olaf jungle, but Olaf is my main top laner. He wins trades, ignores CC, and sustains himself. He is a strong top laner and one of the few that bring true damage to the game. His role is early-mid game fighter, late game assassin or off tank, although assassin tends to be better. I would say he's worth learning
