How it works

  1. You rush Stridebreaker.
  2. You play Bruiser stacking HP, going tanky and building some damage.

How to play

  1. Enemy team heavy on AP? Buy MR. They heavy on AD? Buy Armor. You need some damage? Well buy that.

Tips and Tricks

Riot
  1. Olaf can combine Berserker Rage, Vicious Strikes, and Ragnarok at low life to become deceptively strong.
  2. The bonus healing granted by Vicious Strikes amplifies your Life Steal from all sources as well as heals from allies.
