Best Runes for Olaf?

Hello I just started playing Olaf and find him quite enjoyable. I've tried laning/and jungeling with him and have had my success with each. The first question I have is what is best for a laning Olaf, Mp5? Second is, is full AS runepage good for jungeling Olaf? I've read around that mp5 laning olaf helps a lot with undertow spamability and I'd imagine a full page of AS runes would help out his W skill in jungeling regardless of his passive. Maybe there's something better for overall use like hp runes but i'd like to get some perspective for either scenario. Thanks!

Fixed. Get a chalice if you want that much mana regen. (Which you should get anyway.)

Ya that much regen is pretty much a waste of rune space, like ^ said, get a chalice as one of your first items. I've had success with:

Red: AS
yellow: AS
blue: Flat CDR
quints: 2x ArP, 1x Mv speed

mmkay so i'm guessing Armor pen is the best for jungeling/laning phase. I've gotten chalice and it is much better than wasting runes. Is stacking a full page of AS runes on him not viable or does having ArP and some other rune combos as you have all listed much better for Jungeling scenarios.

I don't know the exact match, but its listed somewhere. Basically minions, monsters, jungle creeps etc all have armor. You get Armor Pen to maximize the damage from each hit. AS works too, I use both, Yellow/Blue AS, Red Arm Pen.

You want to always think about what you're lacking or have excess of and tailor your build to your needs. Try and find the best fit for you. I use 9/0/21 a lot with Olaf so there's some regen built into your masteries. Also, there's nothing wrong with pilling back to town to get some.

I definitely am not interested in gimping my damage output with Olaf by rushing a Chalice for mana regen.
