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.
chalice?
do you know how hard it is to stack a warmog when you get it as soon as you can afford it? buying a chalice would screw me.

dude, by end game it's a fully stacked warmogs...
if you stack a warmogs it's worth it to buy. don't listen to ignorant people.
the fact he gains damage with health makes it more worthwhile.

Attack speed runes don't make much sense on Olaf. He has built in attack speed. You want (in runes and items) to focus on other aspects more that he doesn't have, like armor penetration or critical chance. (He also has built in damage with W, of course, though more of that isn't bad either.)

I just run red armor pen, yellow dodge, blue flat cooldown, flat health quints. You could try other quints, but they are good on anyone and he gets a little extra out of them. If you want to go tankier you could use blue MR.

He has built in ArP too, past level 6.
