I always play him as tank so i want to try something different. AP, AD or both?

Are you seriously asking if something is stupid about an economy made up out of hats?

Pretty sure he scales off AD. You'd still want Health built into it though, as that just helps his bite.

Do not build him AP.

E+R do scale off that but they're both pretty poor scalings with long CD, and R scales off AS just as well.
I don't suppose Tri-Force would hurt but Mallet would probably be better.

Honestly they really need to get rid of those scaling and make it health or AD.
I suppose it's a reason to buy IBG though.

Health and attack speed, then AD.

(He's another champ hurt somewhat by turning Ionic Spark into Statik Shiv)

Build him tanky/aspd. Volibear's strong point is early/mid and you want to take advantage of it.

Lots of health is important for Volibear, and Spirit Visage + Warmog's is pretty much core on him, as they both help his damage and survivability immensely. Tanky hybrid, in my opinion, is stronger than either AP or AD on Voli:

The whole point of Voli is you build him tanky and his W will just sort of do massive damage anyway. The rest of his kit is about catching people and hitting them a bunch of times while you wait to use your W. Some AD and attack speed is good too, but your autos and ult is more about keeping some steady damage while waiting for that bite.

AP scaling is pretty much worthless to him since it can't be used consistently against people. Your ult is only good when there are a couple people near by who have fully committed to a fight and it doesn't even last a long time. And your E is never going to compare to your W even taking cooldowns and the AA build up into consideration.
