Your 6th item can be of your choice as well depending if you need Magic Resist or Armor or if you don't need either you can get some more damage. I like to go with Frozen heart most of the time since it has an aura plus gives mana since you wont have the Philo stones anymore.
My Normal end game build
Rod of Ages
Exhaust - A good replacement spell for Ignite if you have to many Ignites on your team.
Ignite - The other spell I use the most on many to all characters.
Ghost - One of the better spells to use lets you catch up to get that hold on someone to let your team catch up and finish them.
Fortify - Another spell that could be used since you are a tank but you don't need the extra damage on minions so I don't recommend it.
Teleport - Could be used to get to lane faster to hop to another lane quick to get the kill on someone or to hold a lane for someone else.
Clarity - I don't feel like a tank should go near this ability but having the mana when you need it can be helpful.
Heal - Sure your tank you honestly shouldn't be dieing but to me this spell is only helpful early game.
Rally - Extra damage isn't needed on a tank as you shouldn't be getting kills even though its quite easy with some.
Revive - Well reviving faster is nice but I don't recommend this spell since most players will think you are bad if you have it.
Smite - This one should be fairly obvious why you don't need it, simply because its for jungling mostly but hey if you want the extra creep kill every 60 or 75 seconds go for it.
