Battlefury is only the best choice in few games, really. If you really need the hp regen early on... other than that orchid is superior in every way other than the 300 or so extra gold it costs.
Either phase boots or power treads, imo. I get phase myself, because of how important mobility on windrunner is, as well as raw damage items. However, a bit of IAS for when your ult is down is always welcome, and so is the early cheap hp boost from treads. If you get treads then don't invest too much in IAS from other items, imo.
HotD is very nice on her, imo. It gives the things she needs. Her armor is low, and she makes very good use of the raw damage bonus. Lifesteal gives her a way to get her health back up (that way you don't need the hpr from battlefury at all anymore), especially when you get some additional damage items. And ofcourse you can dominate a centaur for an additional stun. Finally, lifesteal works over full damage rather than 70% when using ultimate (unless you got aghanims, then mechanics change and your lifesteal works for only 70%).
One big mana regen item is always welcome, meaning guinsoo or orchids. Both would be a waste of the mana, but I would say it's still acceptable.
Raw damage items. MKB is nice, or desolator. Desolator should ofcourse not be used if you have hotd, but otherwise it's a very good damage item. Battlefury is decent, but as I said I think there's superior items out there.
Finally, there's utility items for windrunner that also help with damage. Force Staff, Blademail, possibly even BKB. Should also mention RoB I guess. If you have a build like Phase Boots, Orchids, HotD, Force Staff, you don't have any pure damage items, but even so, it gives you fantastic mobility, all the mana you need, and still a very good dps.
