See ability details

Stats Changes

Nothing for now.

Let's Talking About

Abilities

Berserker Rage
Berserker Rage

Olaf gains 1.11% bonus attack speed per 1% of his missing health capped to 100% bonus attack speed at 90% of missing health. Rage: Olaf gains 1 Rage every time he recives damage equal to 8% of his maximum health, upon reaching 5 Rage his next ability is empowered; Olaf can allows a maximum of 8 Rage and it can only lost by ussing abilities.

Ability Details
Berserker Rage is a self-buff ability.

Additional Information:

  • The stack's damage counter applies before damage reductions, 'apart from armor and magic damage, so Olaf will loss less health than of his 8% maximum health on them.


Changes Justification: Attack speed, is so difficult to balance in Olaf because he has the high base attack speed in the game, so increase some of the total bonus is unnecesary, insteand, increasing the AS scales to 1.11% from 1% but with a maximum bonus of 100% allows him to reach it with 10% of his maximum health for fight. Rage Resource. If you want to lose health you need to recive damage, this effect encourages you to take the risk with the promise of a bonus effect.

RANGE: 400 / 1000
SPEED: 1550
COST: 20 – 60 mana
COOLDOWN: 7

  • Bonus Damage: 14 / 23 / 32 / 41 / 50 (+ 20% AD)
  • Slow: 16 / 17 / 18 / 19 / 20%

Berserker Rage Berserker Rage: The bonus damage is increased by 50–100% when you have 0–80% of missing health. Don't cost Rage.

Second Activation: Olaf throws an ice axe to the target location, dealing physical damage to all enemies it passes through and Slow icon slowing them for 1.5 - 2.5 seconds, based on the distance the axe traveled.

  • Physical Damage: 70 / 115 / 160 / 205 / 250 (+ 100% bonus AD)
  • Slow: 29 / 33 / 37 / 41 / 45%

Berserker Rage Berserker Rage: The axe damage, projetil speed and slow are increased by 50–100% when you have 0–80% of missing health. Costs 1 Rage.

Ability Details
Undertow is a ability with two activations, the first is an auto-attack modifier and the second is a linear, pass-through skill shot.

Additional Information:

  • Olaf won't be able to cast the second activation if he doesn't haves the first activation's effect (The bonus damage).
    • Because of this, the second activation only can be use one time per first cast.
  • First activation:
    • Can affect structures.
    • Applies life steal
    • The basic attack can critical strike but the bonus damage is unaffected.
    • To reduce the cooldown its necesary to use it on a enemy or neutral unit.
    • Silences the ability when Olaf is landing a basic attack.
    • Don't resets attack timer.
  • Second Activation:
    • Will grants a brief instance of sight when it hits the ground.
    • If Olaf attempts to cast it below the minimum range, he will throw it the minimum distance units in the direction of cast.
    • If Olaf attempts to cast it beyond the maximum range, it will fall short at the maximum range in the direction of cast.
    • Olaf cannot pick up an enemy Olaf's axe, unlike DravenSquare Draven.
    • Neutral monsters hit by the axe will temporarily be ignored by unit collision. This is an invisible debuff and is intended to make it easier for Olaf to pick up his axes.


Justification: The activation mode allows you to choose between a more constant and personal DPS fight or a evasive and lapsed but more strong and groupal attack, the most important different is the activation frecuency. The most important thing is that you can use only one activation per availability, in other words, you choose to use the first or the second activation effects but not both in the same succession.

Other important thing about the new effect is, dispide is a autoattack modifier, it NOT resets the attack timer.

About the Rage's bonus effect for both activations, is the choice for more damage and utility between his empower abilities.

Vicious Strikes
COST: 30 mana
COOLDOWN: 16
Vicious Strikes

Active: For 6 seconds, Olaf will strike twice in his next basic attack. The attack will only deal a % of AD but it scales with Olaf's max health and is increases with his missing health.

Ability Details

  • Vicious Strikes has no cast time and it will not interrupt previous orders.


Changes justification:

Well, the first opinion at this ability changes is they are over buffed, but if you do the calculations the ability is less overbuffed, for example, the twice attack do a lot of damage but the cooldown prevends it for a constant use also the maximum health scale can only reach near to 15%, the armor reduction with a attack speed of 2.5 Olaf can only applies in the best ways a maximum of 14 stacks, reducing 28 / 31.5 / 35 / 38.5 / 42 flat or percentile armor in a single target.

Rage bonus: The shield effect works in a similar form as the Life Steal do, but it only serves in fight because it don't recover health but allows Olaf to stay with the same health into a fight, also it can be used only when Olaf has 5 Rage at least.


Reckless Swing

Reckless Swing is a single target ability.

Additional Information:

  • This ability's cost is equal to 30% of the total damage. Olaf will pay the cost regardless if the ability deals any damage.
  • As with all activated health-cost abilities, Reckless Swing can be cast at any health value but will not reduce Olaf's health below 1. This makes Reckless Swing effectively free-to-cast at 1 health.
  • Health cost refund on the ability is considered a heal, therefore it is affected by increased healing from OlafSquare Olaf's Vicious Strikes Vicious Strikes and Spirit Visage item Spirit Visage.
  • Reckless Swing will cancel if Olaf loses sight of his target during the cast time, as with many of the game's older and non-updated champions.


Changes justification:

The cost is no longer refunded but now you gain aditional true damage equal of the cost, the ability helps to generate Rage without reciving damage but you stills need a enemie to generate Rage and it don't serves to reach the cap because of his Rage cost.

Rage bonus: This effects works good where the slows don't prevent something than stuns do, like chaneling abilities or movile champs with leaps. But if you want to stun much longer you need to sacrifice basic attack damage in order to do it, thats is more significative when Olaf is in low health.

Ability Details
