Max E first, dont trade very much until you're level 3 or 4.

hp to counter true dmg, armor for his phys damage, dodge boots work well too.

Darius is going to build Mallet, Warmog's Maw of Malmortius and other survivability+damage items.

What you do is solo and have a jungler help you when he pushes (most Darius's are very aggressive and push you to your turret).
What you DO NOT want to do is overpush him. One reason obviously being that their jungler will sandwich you, and Darius will attempt to pull you into his turret.

With Olaf, you need to build half tank+utility then sustain+damage. This is my build:
Berserker's greaves, Frozen Mallet, Phage --> Trinity Force, 3X Bloodthirster / 2X Bloodthirster + Warmog's.


Darius is going to build health for overall survivability. You do NOT level your E (True damage) first. Instead, level your Q and W.. Add ONE point to E incase you run out of mana and need to quickly deal damage.
In the beginning take with you tier 1 boots, 2 health potions, 1 mana potion and level your Q first.
DO NOT push much, simply last-hit your cs (creep score [minions]) to maintain a mid-lane.

Harass Darius with Q when he walks towards you, make sure you keep your distance so he doesn't pull you and stack his Hemorrhage. Stay on your minion's side so that if he decides to fight you, your minions will deal a lot of damage to him.

At the end, your Q will deal massive damage (it's ratio = bonus ad [attack damage from leveling/items]), your basic attacks will deal 500+ damage.

If Darius for some reason builds armor, level your E and W with 1 pt to Q for harassment.
