The only AD you need to build on Zed is a BT or IE + LW. So even with boots, you still have three slots to dedicate to defensive items; and you should put defensive items in those slots. If you're building Zed with 4 big damage items + boots and a GA, then you're going to suck.
I often build a HoG and Maw of Malmortius on him, to mitigate unpleasantness long enough to double-Flash to the squishy.

Phage occasionally, as well. Depending on what's going on. Sometimes people need to die faster, sometimes you may need to live longer and chase.

Not as a pure bruiser, though. He doesn't need Frozen Mallet or the like-- not many endgame tanky items.

Just enough early survivability.

Leveling W second (after Q) is also very helpful, since the % AD boost increases the effectiveness of just about everything you do, including tankier builds.

If you might guess from my thread, I believe he is an excellent champion.

But really, wait for free week and/or watch other people play him, perhaps in streams or spectator, then decide.

I put some of my build and leveling choices in the thread.

I also rather like Flat AD runes for even better early harass.

I maintain that the main reason people are failing with him is that they buy too much into his assassin role and what that should do. Thus they think of his W as primarily a gap closer when really it's most useful as a range extender to your Q and E. Thus the constant jumping in on people thinking that's what you're supposed to do with him. Really, he's more of a poke champ who can assassinate people when his R's up. People want to compare him to Talon when he's really more like Nidalee.

Zed is an amazing champion, but most noobs bought him and expect the usual:''Omg I just pwned you darius pre-nerf style because I'm assassin'' and when they can't do that they say he's up and he needs more damage. Typical community.
