So far its, mercury treads,(first item-->) tear of goddess(later archangel) frozen heart, i didn't get any farther in the game, i was guessing tanky items like warmogs or force of nature.
From my experience, there are 3 major ways to build blitz
1. Tanky dps, Obvious one, you build triforce and tanky items
2. AP burst mage. Using his AP ratio to the advantage, often build a lich bane as well, offers A LOT OF BURST with ultimate in a team fight, and usually use mana shield to tank most of the damage, yet still pretty squishy
3. Support Blitz. Using some tanky item and gp10 items to make up the gold that is needed, a really aggressive support at bottom lane.
If you are going support blitz, build a philo's stone, then boot, then HoG or a sheen for more damage, after that, any item is possible (Frozen heart is good if the enemy is AD heavy, etc.)
Tear is usually not needed, as support blitz have a hard time to stack it up, and philo's stone should be build earlier, meaning tear going to delay it by a bit.
