How to play Olaf


Olaf is a fighter jungler. He has one of the best early games in terms of clearing and 1 vs 1 potential vs the enemy jungler. He can also be strong in the mid and late-game which makes him an all-around good pick. Once Olaf reaches level 5 and gets Ragnarok, he can run into any lane and get an advantage. Ragnarok allows Olaf to ignore all crowd control, so you can just run towards the enemy really easily and start to do a bunch of damage.


Olaf can also be played in the Baron lane, make sure to check the alternative build at the top of the page! The build with Olaf Baron Lane is very similar to the jungle build with just a few changes to make him tankier, there is not really much else that is different in terms of playstyles.

Olaf Build Breakdown


Divine Sunderer
Black Cleaver
Death's Dance
Sterak's Gage
Guardian Angel
Plated Steelcaps - Glorious

Olaf uses a mixture of both AD and tank items that allow him to deal a lot of damage and survive. Divine Sunderer is a great item for Olaf. This item gives him both damage and tank stats. Divine Sunderer's passive effect Spellblade also works great with Olaf's abilities, especially Reckless Swing. Sterak's Gage is a great example of a tank item that works well with Olaf. It gives him some health and when he is low on health he gets a shield to keep him alive longer.


For runes, we have the following:

Conqueror

Olaf is a fighter so he wants to get in the enemies' faces and attack constantly. This means he can get stacks pretty fast with his abilities, which allows him to get more damage on the enemies.

Brutal

This helps out Olaf in the early game get that extra bit of damage when clearing the jungle and getting early ganks off.

Bone Plating

With Olaf, you will be ganking a lot and be in a lot of fights doing a lot of damage to multiple enemies especially if you use your ultimate to run in and hit everyone. Bone plating helps Olaf get some bonus defensive stats when running in. 

Pathfinder

As a jungler you will be roaming around the map a lot, taking objectives and ganking lanes. Pathfinder gives you extra movement speed in brushes, jungle and river so you can move around the map a lot quicker to help your team.

Flash
Smite

For summoner spells, Flash is a must on most champions. It's a great spell to get out of a situation or if you are trying to go in for the killing blow. Smite is a must for when you are playing jungle. Helps you out a lot when clearing the jungle and securing the epic monsters.

Jungle Path


Olaf has a very fast early jungle clear. This means that you can work your way around the jungle really quick and be aggressive when contesting the scuttle crabs in the rivers. It is important to start at Blue Sentinal as Olaf can struggle on mana a lot so it will help him out when working your way through the jungle.


This is what the jungle patch would look like:

  1. Blue Sentinal
  2. Raptors
  3. Red Brambleback
  4. Scuttle Crab 1 (In river)
  5. Scuttle Crab 2 (Opposite river)
  6. Gank or continue to farm jungle.

Below is a beginner's guide for jungle in Wild Rift. It goes in-depth about every jungle camp, epic monsters and more!

Late Game


Olaf does pretty well in the late game. You can team up and run down the enemies with your ultimate. When in a team fight, your main goal is to get on top of the enemy backline and try your best to kill them. Your main job as a jungler is to keep track of when Dragons, Rift Herald, and Baron spawn. Taking these epic monsters will give you and your team an advantage in the game. When in a team fight, try your best not to get caught out and try to keep auto-attacking and using your abilities to deal damage.

Conclusion


Overall Olaf is a good all-around jungler. Great for people that have just started playing Wild Rift and want to give the jungle a try. Olaf is really good at running down enemies and dealing a lot of damage to carry the game.
