    This guide will give you an overview of the boss fight to help you understand how to solo Olm. I will not go in depth with the abilities, as other guides has covered these thoroughly. I will focus more on the advanced part with special skipping and how you can speedrun this boss.
    The video I upload with this guide is a speedrun, and I'm focusing more on doing damage than staying safe. It should help you understand some of the things I explain in this guide




    Gear and inventory
    [​IMG] [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    You should find an inventory that you are comfortable with, I recommend bringing more supplies and less switches until you are fully comfortable with the fight.

    The Fight
    You want to start the phases off with 2 Dragon Warhammer or Bandos Godsword specs on his melee hand. If you have Recover special potions, you will always have 100% spec for every phase if used correctly. For the first 2 phases start off with double speccing the melee hand and then going to the middle to attack the mage hand and start skipping. You want to kill the mage hand first except in the last phase.
    In the last phase I recommend staying on the melee hand till it is almost dead(dont kill it, they need to die at the same time). You should also focus on skipping the Swap and Heal here, which I will cover later on.
    When both hands die in phase 3 you attack the head. You can skip his auto attacks, by running back and forth between melee, middle, mage side.

    Special ability skipping
    Olm has three special abilities in the first 2 phases and four special abilities in phase 3 and will always use them in this order: Crystal Burst, Lightning, Swap and Heal(phase 3).
    These are the abilities that I will teach you how to skip today.
    Every second auto attack, Olm will do a special ability 1 second after the auto attack, but if no players are in sight, the special ability will be skipped.
    To get an idea how this works let's imagine you are attacking Olm's melee hand and his head is facing this way. When he is about to cast his second auto attack you prepare to run past the middle point towards his mage hand. Now there is no players on the side that olm is facing and the special ability is skipped. If you run before he casts his autoattack, the special ability will not be skipped.
    Skipping these abilities is harder on melee and I recommend only skipping Swap and heal on that side.
    When you are maging you want to stand in the middle, one tile closer to his mage hand. This way it is easier to skip his special abilities as you need to move very little to the melee hand to skip.


    Turning the head
    You can turn the head to either side by standing on the blue or red tiles on this picture.
    If you are standing in the middle, Olms head will also turn to the middle. But lets say you are attacking any hand while also standing between the yellow tiles and the hand you are attacking he will also turn to this side, because you have aggro on that hand. This is useful when you are skipping because when you want to skip special ability when attacking the mage hand, you can still stay close to the middle and run to the melee hand when you want to skip a special ability

    Praying
    Olm can either hit you with a mage or range ability and he tends to stick to that attack style for a couple of attacks. If you want you can pray soulsplit all the time and eat food if you get low, or you can switch prayers back and forth and minimise damage taken.
