On the new map (Crystal Scar) I've started playing him as AD. I took prospector's blade then built Tri Force. With it's bit of AP it was quite helpful at pimping his Q and considering how often it's up, you pretty much get the sheen bonus every 2 secs. Then I tended to opt for items with attack speed and either an Odin's veil or sometimes even a thornmail depending on the other team. Thornmail really helps if you're 1v1ing an AD enemy, which can happen sometimes if you're caught out travelling to diff capture points.

i'd go for ap instead of ad, because all of his skills except dash scale with ap or magic pen (passive deals magic damage), so tanky ap with lichbane. heck, if you want attack speed go for madred or malady.

as the build goes : hog, mercury, rylai, abyssal, lichbane, finish randuin, and wards

for an ad build, trinity, warmog, atma, mercury, banshee, wards

You go back in time to before they nerfed his passive and pick up Atmogs, sunfire and Frozen Mallet

You don't. There are so many better ways to use him. And there are sooooo many better Dps or AP champ available.
