Been wondering why it takes both hp and mp, usually it takes only 1 or the other.
So why is it only for him that it takes both?


Because it's a totally awesome skill. But really, it only costs MP. You're so reckless you somehow hit yourself (I think it should just momentarily lower your armor/MR but whatever)

It is actually a benefit that it takes your hp.
Cause it will make you drop in hp, therefor making your attack speed greater.

Because having a health cost synergizes with his passive, fits his lore, and gives extra cost to an ability that deals true damage.

Olaf's passive is convenient but really I'd rather be full hp Olaf than like half HP olaf in a teamfight. Survivability>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>doing more DPS.

Just imagine Reckless Swing without mana cost. Then Olaf builds would always be R>E>Q/W and early on Olaf can just nuke you repeatedly (no mana cost) and there's nothing you can do about it.

If Reckless Swing was just doing heavy damage while also damage Olaf, yes, removing mana cost would be fine. But Reckless Swing deals true damage, which is much more important.
