I pretty new to playing olaf, and I know the general idea of his strength, but I find that I'm not executing it to it's full potential and I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. So if people could give me examples of a build path, skill order, and a short description of lane/teamfight playstyle, I'd be quite appreciative.

I know his niche as a character is building tanky but still having a lot of damage and relative burst. Also the whole slow and mobility from ult thing to escape or get to high priority targets. But like I said above, I don't know exactly what to build or what skill order makes this most effective. Especially skill order.

Thanks in advance!

Things I like getting on olaf are a brutelizer, shurelias and quick silver sash. This gives you damage, mobility and almost a double ult. With these items I can go for a kill anytime and still get out if it doesn't go as planned. I also like locket of the iron solari a lot on olaf as it give cd reduction and other nice stats.

I've heard kindlegem and anything that builds out of it is good on him, thoughts?

Also, what do you generally skill order for TT?

I take Q at lvl 1, E twice, then W at level 4 before maxing E. I typically build Frozen Mallet first, and if I'm ahead I'll get brutalizer. If I'm behind I'll start building tanky items like Randuins or Frozen Heart. Honestly, his build depends a lot on what you're up against, but defensive items with CDR are probably best.

hey, so i main olaf on 3's so ill tell you my build and spell sequence and you can try it
so i normally start of with half complete items if that makes sense?
so i start with a philosopher's stone, boots of speed, tiamat, either a phage or giants belt depending on the game, i then start completing items, so philosopher's into a shurelya's, beserker greaves, ravonous hydra, black cleaver, frozen mallet and depending on the composition of the other team eg a fed ap carry or fed ad carry ill either get a spirit visage or randuin's omen.
as for spells/ability i take and early point in all getting my q first then w then e, i max q first so i have a good harass, i then max my e next, the combo of q and e is amazing, plus with the health regen and cooldown from the shurelya's/spirit visage combo lets you use his e every 2 seconds, so imagine 380 true damage every two seconds without the massive health loss. i then obviously max w and of course as always take your r at 6, 11 and 16.
i hope this helps, happy gaming
