DH5: 003 - Olaf the Berserker!

Day three's the way to be!

Here's Olaf the Berserker! looking all wall-eye'd and ready to chop the crap out of everybody!

He's a pretty typical character as far as designs go, but I've always been a big fan of vikings so I have an instant bias for this champion. My favorite part of designing vikings is that they don't need a lot of details or gear to show the viewer that they mean business. A perfect example is The Animation Workshop's Saga of Biorn.

In the game i could never really get a handle on Olaf's Playing style. There's this fine line of ownage that he stomps along that never ended up gelling with me. He sure is a beast in game though with those reckless swings and constant bellowing. Anyone a big fan of the blonde bruiser? Maybe some tips on tearing down teams with this terror?

  1. Olaf hasn't seen much love lately. . .I love norse/viking stuff but never gotten around to playing him. . .i suppose hes not really viable anymore since i haven't seen him in a game since like when i started playing LoL. . . So I am a fan of the Norse Viking Dude Olaf and saddened that i dont see him in game often enough.

  2. Yeah i honestly don't know where he fits in the grand scheme of things.

    I know he can jungle like super fast but your on a razor's edge and can be disrupted really easily, and with a weak CC he can't really snag champions very well.

    I love viking stuff as well and hopefully they either buff up the viking or add another.

  3. Yay, Olaf, i really like how you pictured him haha.

    Keep them coming!! :)

    PS: I LOVED the Saga Of Biorn, haha. Thanks for sharing.
