I'm talking about quints here. Are the health per level or flat HP OR the +1.5%HP better for him? And are they even good on him?

If your hero is not prone to buy hp items, hp/lvl.
If your hero is prone on buying hp, % hp is strong.

Olaf stacks hp, so go %.

Flat hp quints became obsolete the moment riot took off lvl1 dragon fights.

in my honest opinion, MS quints are too strong to not take on ANYONE

% HP runes are just awful.

As for quints flat is better almost every time.

isnt it +9% total hp with the set? add 3% from the defense tree, if your hero has 3k hp before lvl18 (when hp/lvl runes end scaling), you'd get a total of 360hp.

On the other hand, hp/lvl quints+seals yield a total of 320hp (but at lvl 18, and they stop, whereas hp% scales with your hp, but hp/lvl will give you 320 even if you dont get any hp, and olaf is a bruiser that expecially stacks hp because E, because W, and gets resists from his ultimate).

HP per level seals are good because they overtake at level 6. HP/level quints overtake at 13? so they're not good. % HP quints are only slightly stronger than HP/level for the first few levels and then after 3200 HP, but since flat HP quints are better than HP/level quints...

That being said Olaf runs armor seals. It doesn't matter what lane you're in, or if you're jungling. He could be mid against an AP carry and he would still run armor seals.
