He can fall off if you aren't careful. That said, he does a scary amount of damage.
You should build him tanky and offensive.
He can do a ton of burst damage but you have to hit them with everything you got then escape. Wu can't take constant damage.
I usually build like so:
doran
boots -> berserker / speed / ninja depending how the game is going and what I need
trinity (Wu is one of the few champs that benefits from every single stat from trinity)
frost mallet

after that, see how the game is going.
If it is a close game, and the other guys are getting scary, build a warmog
If you are winning by miles, start playing around with your items. Perhaps a leviathan or phantom
If you want to switch to being more agressive, start building straight damage. Infinity Edge or bloodthirster.

You just need to practice with him and get a feel for when to chase and when to run. Wu is an amazing champ, but he has a high learning curve and can get shut down easily by CC.

Bonus:
if you can't do anything, and you are just running around, build AP. Your decoy will do tons of damage :P

Actually WuKong's late game is amazing. He has one of the best initiates in the game, as well as it does tons of damage even if you're built very tanky. I would HIGHLY suggest not building a Trinity and Frozen mallet as one of the passives gets unused. I usually build one OR the other.

If I need damage: TF. Survivability: Frozen Mallet. Then I will usually build a GA, Then a BF Sword for more damage. Then totally situational after that, sometimes even before. I normally always build Merc treads on him, unless there is no CC then I'll get BoM or Ninja Tabi if its AD heavy.

I have a question for Tashniel if he looks back. I don't play wukong and typically I never really think of him as a good pick in the current meta, but I have seen him played well regardless. That aside I was wondering about the build you mentioned. If you get trinity then should you go for a different form of health other than Frozen Mallet since you already have the slow from Trinity? Like would a Warmog's be a better choice there?

I don't want to bash wukong, I just don't play him myself so I am unfamiliar with his builds and how he matches up against others. He's just one of those picks I generally feel lack-luster about, but I could be wrong.

isn't wu kinda outclassed? it sounds like people like Darius, Irelia or Jayce do his role much more efficiently

Wukong has a strong team fight presence. However, he is becoming increasingly outclassed in laning.
