Additional Olaf Build Insights

League of Legends Olaf players will find him to be a complex character to build out properly. You will find that his build is modified when he is up against either well-rounded or highly focused team compositions, demonstrating you shouldn't take the same Olaf build every round of League of Legends

The most essential items to use in your champ's build are: Trinity Force, Sterak's Gage, and Spirit Visage. Players who included these items in their builds had a much higher winrate than those who worked towards other builds for Olaf. Similarly, if you are facing a varied enemy team arrangement, you should really consider grabbing Olaf the Precision, and Inspiration runes. In recent matches, he won the greatest fraction of his matches when using these runes.
