[2.4 Video Guide] Doomfletch Tornado Shot, Blast Rain Raider [HC/SC]

Video Guide: Path of Exile: Crit Tornado Shot/Blast Rain Build [Atziri & HC/SC viable]

Check this short (5-6 min) build guide video above. It will show you how the build performs and explain how to set everything up!

If you have any questions about the build come to my twitch stream and I will do my best to answer them:

NOTE: If you would rather use Split Arrow or Lightning Arrow instead of Tornado Shot, then I have two very similar guides for that as well. They can be found here:

Path of Exile: Crit Split Arrow/Blast Rain Build [Atziri & HC/SC viable]

Path of Exile: Crit Lightning Arrow/Blast Rain Build [Atziri & HC/SC viable] (not yet added)

This is the official thread for my "Crit Tornado Shot Raider" build. In this thread I will cover the requirements of the build. To get a more detailed explanation on how the build works and needs to be set up, check out the link to my video guide above.

First of all, what is this build and who is it suited for?

1. This build is designed for both new players and veterans alike. The build has the potential to run the highest level maps, and with great clear speed!

2. Someone who seeks a build that is fairly budget friendly - no unique items are required in order to make it work. That said there is a few very powerful ones I will recommend in this guide.

3. Fans of archers and bow builds!

4. A build that is both viable for hardcore as well as softcore.

5. People who prefer a build that has a video-guide linked to it.

Hi lifting!

Whats up?

Some quick questions bro!

Why dont u pick phase acro?Phase acro + atziris step = 45% chance to dodge spells!Big big boost in my view!

I got a drillneck and a pierce gem20/20!Shall i use the pierce cluster or go for a top tier rare crit quiver and a non pierce tornado setup?

Rats nest is a must as u said!Greatly boosts your ranger gameplay!

Then i got a problem Rats nest + atziris step + maligaros makes too difficult to cap resistances let alone chaos res!

So which one shall i drop atziris step or maligaros?

Great guide as always bro!I tested my ranger yesterday and i have to say tornado shot mechanics felt a bit weaker than before but im still sure i will continue this approach for my ranger so thank you for your time mate!
I've watched video and i wanted to rewatch it but it's gone. Pls repair it :)
Great guide bro!

Awesome been waiting for a good HC ranger guide. Could you however fix the skill tree links? I know they are in the video but i want to compare some skill tree's and its really hard for me using just the video.
None of the passive trees work. While I enjoy your videos, having them linked here would be nice for quick reference.

Ahh the skill-tree calculator is out of date. I will update them within the next hour or so.

EDIT:
Skill-tress updated and should be working now.
