Guide to Countering Olaf as Diana

Tips for Playing as Diana against Olaf

Consider when to cast Lunar Rush without Moonlight and when to wait for another Crescent Strike.

Landing Crescent Strike is critically important, but don't be afraid to miss. The cooldown is short and the mana cost is low.

Use Moonfall and Lunar Rush to stay on targets and activate Moonsilver Blade for extra damage.

Advice to Win Against Olaf

Olaf becomes more dangerous the lower life he is. Save your disables to finish him off.

Olaf has reduced defenses from damage during Ragnarok, despite being immune to disables. If you can't escape from Olaf during Ragnarok, try focusing your damage on him with your teammates.

Preventing Olaf from reaching his axe will minimize the amount of harassment he can cause in the laning phase.
