I didn't try this method yet, but I think it should work.
If you want to root your zenfone 3, you can following this guide to root your device.
============================

Firstly, you should use the following official unlock tool to unlock Boot-loader.
[Update] If you want to receive OTA notify, you should use Un-official bootloader unlock method.

After you unlock your device, you can download the TWRP recovery image, and follow the guide to root your device.

twrp-3.0.2-Z017D.img (TWRP for ZE520KL)

If your device is ZE552KL, then you should download twrp-3.0.2-Z012D.img + dot.supersu
If your device is ZE520KL, then you should download twrp-3.0.2-Z017D.img + dot.supersu
If you want to build recovery image by yourself, you can clone the git source tree, and compile by yourself.
