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


Black Cleaver
Divine Sunderer
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 allows him to get the 6 stacks pretty fast, which means he can deal more damage and get a lot of physical vamp when fully stacked

Triumph

Olaf will be in a lot of team fights running onto the backline and trying to kill the enemy carries so dealing extra damage will always help and Olaf restores health every time he gets a takedown.

Ultimate Shield

When using Olaf's ultimate it is normally when you are looking to engage or escape a bad position. With Ultimate Shield you will gain a shield that will absorb a bit of damage when you use your Ultimate so you can take a little bit more damage.

Nimbus Cloak

Olaf is a champion that can sometimes struggle to get close to enemies when trying to deal damage to them. Nimbus Cloak will help Olaf give him some movement speed when flashing or smiting an enemy champion.

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. Krugs
  2. Red Brambleback
  3. Raptors
  4. Look for Gank
  5. Scuttle Crab
  6. 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.
