Olaf jungle guide Wild Rift | Build and Runes S1

Olaf jungle guide Wild Rift

Olaf has arrived on LoL: Wild Rift like a steamroller. Filled to the brim with testosterone and muscle, this proud Viking works wonders in the jungle. Perfect for beginners who haven't fully mastered this special role, our Olaf jungle Wild Rift guide will give you all the keys you need to beat the crap out of your enemies. They'll regret standing in front of you and end up mashed or stewed, depending on your preference. Sensitive souls should refrain, the gameplay of the berzerker does not make any lace. It lacks a bit of finesse but is violently effective.

To master Olaf Jungle, you need to keep in mind some basic principles. These include the optimal itemisation of the champion, his role in the game and his skill rotation.

Recommended build for Olaf jungle : items, runes and skill order

With this build Olaf is ready for battle!

Olaf may have a rather simple gameplay, but he is still a formidable jungler part of our Tier List Wild Rift. While the champion can also be seen playing in sololan, there are a variety of builds. Considered abruiser, he can be equipped with both defensive and offensive items. For an optimal choice, we advise you to keep a certain balance. The temptation to go full damage is great, but the Viking is not invincible and can quickly turn into a crisp if he has no protection.

What build for Olaf jungle Wild Rift?

  • Must-have items: Olaf excels in long battles and the Black Spur is a great item for him. It reduces the enemy's armour while giving the berzerker a speed bonus. Then come the Dance of Death and Sterak's Sting, which allow him to hold his ground in combat. Health points, damage reduction, shield... These items have very good defensive statistics in addition to giving additional attack damage.
  • Boots: The Gluttonous Legs are the best boots for Olaf, they give him a very useful omnivampirism bonus. On the enchantment side, the Famous Glory is a good choice for going after enemies.
  • Situational objects: Olaf's last two objects can be debated and several solutions are available to you. It is important to look at the composition of the opponent and the state of the game before making your choices. TheGuardian Angel is a sure bet to get a second life. Then comes a last defensive item: the Spiritual Face (magic resistance) or the Thorny Boot (armour).

Which runes for Olaf jungle Wild Rift?

  • Main rune: no doubt about it, the Conqueror rune is the rune of the bruisers. It allows Olaf to shine as soon as the fights last a little while.
  • Secondary Runes: The Weakness rune synergizes very well with Olaf's axe throwing. Guardian of the Spirits gives him tenacity which is useful especially when the Viking doesn't have his ultimate. An alternative solution is to take the Hunter rune - vampirism for more sustain. Finally, the Maquis rune is perfect for playing in the jungle.

Which skills should be improved first?

Obviously, you should not forget to improve your ultimate skill as soon as possible. Otherwise the order of skills to upgrade is as follows: Ripper > Savage Strike > Vicious Strike. This last skill is powerful from rank 1 and does not require a quick additional investment.

How do you use Olaf's jungle skills?

Berzerker's rage
Berzerker's rage (passive)
A double-edged passive that increases Olaf's attack speed according to his missing HP
Ripper
Ripper
Olaf's main skill which allows him to throw an axe to hurt and slow down all enemies in the path. Remember to pick it up to reduce the cooldown by 4.5 seconds and use it almost continuously.
Vicious strikes
Vicious strikes
A skill that on activation increases Olaf's attack speed and life flight. Use it as much as possible in the jungle and in battle.
Wildcat strike
Wildcat strike
Inflicts a lot of raw damage to an enemy, but also inflicts some recoil damage. Don't be afraid to use the skill sparingly in the jungle, as well as in combat.
Ragnarok
Ragnarok (ultimate)
A bulldozer ultimate that increases Olaf's damage and speed while making him immune to crowd control. Use in anticipation of a CC or under the effect of one to purge.

To put it simply, Olaf's skills are all very useful and at the risk of hurting your fingers, don't hesitate to use them over and over! This will allow you to clean the monsters in the jungle very quickly. However, the risk is to run out of mana. This is why the Blue Buff is essential, not to say vital! Also remember to pick up as many of your axes as possible when throwing them with Tear. In combat or while running behind an enemy, this drastically reduces your recovery time. Wild Strike is a close combat attack, but good players will notice that it allows for a mini-strike to reach the intended target. So remember to lock on to your target before attacking so you don't lose the fluidity of your movement.

Olaf's Wild Rift jungle skill
Olaf can use Wild Strike to get closer to his enemy.

Finally, it's a good idea not to cast Ragnarok too early. Try to cast your ultimate only when you suffer a crowd control (stun, slow down). The skill instantly purges the effect and your opponent will have wasted a recovery time.

With which champion should a good synergy be set up?

Good synergy with Olaf jungle Wild Rift: Lulu

Olaf is a somewhat solitary champion who goes for it without really caring about his surroundings. As a result, there aren't really any champions who synergise particularly well with him. However, he can pair with Lulu supportHe can, however, be paired up with the "The Ranger", which gives him an extra steroid in movement speed and attack speed.

Counter of Olaf jungle Wild Rift: who should we watch out for?

Counter of Olaf Wild Rift: Fizz

Olaf is not afraid of many people and in the jungle he can stand up to anyone. There is no real counter, although some picks will put you in a bit of a bind. Olaf has no real dash and can't jump over a wall. Champions like Ahri or Fizz can quickly become impossible to catch. So be careful during the draft phase. More generally, items and champions that reduce healing are also very detrimental to Olaf.

Advanced tips and tricks for playing Olaf jungle Wild Rift

This guide will help you win!

To play Olaf well, you have to be ready to go straight for it. His skills inflict a lot of damage at the beginning of the game, especially thanks to the raw damage of Wild Strike. You should therefore take advantage of this strength to quickly gain an advantage, force enemies to fight and snowball the game. On the other hand, Olaf is not as strong at the end of the game... Going for it in 1v1 is easy, but doing it in 1v5 is more complicated! Moreover, defensive items start to flourish and Olaf becomes much less efficient.
We also advise you to be careful with Ripper. The range is respectable, but to save time when you are in close combat, throw your axe as close as possible. This way, it will be easy to quickly pick up your weapon to get the valuable cooldown reduction. In the jungle, also be careful not to throw your axe behind an inaccessible wall.

We have reached the end of our Olaf jungle Wild Rift guide. With this one, you can start your soloQ adventures with the viking without further ado 😉
