I was just thinking about different olaf builds because I love playing him and he's extremely fun. I know you need to build health, but what do you guys think of this build?

Boots (depending on game)
Frozen Mallet
Warmog's Armor
Atma's Impaler
Thornmail
Force of Nature

I know builds vary from game to game, and this is really expensive, but for those games with a really balanced enemy team and last for a long time, what do you think of this as kind of a core build?

Any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hmm, it seems viable, but the problem is both Thornmail and/or Force of Nature are pretty much situational items (And costy, as you said). My usual build would be :

Wriggle's Lantern (With your W, gives you a fair amount of sustain)
Boots (Mercury or Ninja)
Frozen Mallet
Warmog (You may get it before mallet, I usually get mallet first to chase oponents)
Atma's
Guardian Angel
At this point, I usually trade my Wriggle's for a bloodthirster.

With this build, you have a pretty good balance of health, armor and damage. You could ditch the wriggle's if you don't like using it or need to build an early Thornmail/FoN, but since Olaf 's job is to kill the carries (and not tank), I don't believe those items are useful, unless they are needed.
