[3.8] LIGHTNING ARROW/BARRAGE Deadeye Build / Your #1 Bow League Starter! UBER ELDER DONE!

Lightning Arrow was always a popular choice for levelling, but rarely was it used in the end-game. I kind of fell in love with LA during my Kinetic Blast levelling process (went from level 1 to 85 on LA) and decided i am gonna min-max it and push through Uber Elder and all content to see where "borders" are. Actually they are nowhere to be seen! lol. The build does not struggle anywhere and just breezes through all content including Uber Elder and such. It has same speed as Tornado Shot, can be MF just as Tornado Shot, and at the same time can kill Uber Elder not-as-any-Tornado-Shot while being cheaper as noone gives a damn about lightning jewels.
But the best part is the whole smoothness of the build.You literally take a skill at level 12 and progress through the WHOLE game! It is literally one of the best bow league starters i've ever played and can totally recommend to any new players who want to try bow skills!

======================================================================================
How does it work, in general?
Lightning Arrow is a phys-to-lightning based projectile AOE bow attack. Barrage is a shotgunning strong single target bow attack. We will be using Lightning Arrow to clear most content and Barrage for nasty rares and bosses.
======================================================================================
1) PROS
Spoiler

+From level 12 to Uber Elder with just 2 skills. Incredible League Starter that will not fail!
+great clear speed
+Plenty of bossing DPS. Barrage 6-7 Million. LA = 1-2 Million.
+cheaper than Physical and Cold builds. Cheaper than Tornado Shot (helm enchant says HELLO)
+can switch to MF in a blink of an eye

======================================================================================
2) CONS
Spoiler

-Expensive to min-max (my investment was around 50 EX)
-squishy, super hard to reach 6k life. Mostly dodge and Warlord's Mark to survive. But does fine in end-game.
======================================================================================

3) Skill Tree Progression / Path of Building / Ascendancy / Bandits
Spoiler
Path of building:
Basic Tree https://pastebin.com/J8Zw4SF2
For Ascendancy: Gathering Winds, Rupture, Fast and Deadly, Powerful Precision
Bandits: Kill All

======================================================================================
4) Early Levelling Gear / Skills
Spoiler

As a lot of people are having general problems progressing, you need to understand a few basic things about GEARING while levelling:
1) Always upgrade your gear as you go. Don't be surprised if your 3L LA does no damage as well as your 2L Barrage which you are carrying since Act 1. ALWAYS upgrade your links and gear. ALWAYS buy a cheap blue/white 5L for 1 Alch and put LA and BARRAGE in bow/chest. Don't expect to run on a 4L till Act 10. Follow gearing progression guide.
2) If you are a new player and can't dodge shit as more experienced players, make sure your life pool remains solid as well as try to balance resists otherwise you will constantly die from everything. Once you reach maps start buying resist rings/belt/amulet/30% movespeed boots/helm. etc. Your resists must be over 75+ and life over 4K to start mapping smoothly.
3) Once you get enough currency buy the chest and make a 5L.

===============
Get a 6L Silverbranch if possible. You can later upgrade it to Silverbough at level 36.
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Silverbranch
Lioneye's Glare 6L is also 1 ex, so this will be your end-game bow for a while. Then buy a Windripper





Hyrri's Bite can be also upgrdaded to Demise at level 45:
https://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Hyrri%27s_Demise
Take Ice Shot and use it in this combo:
Ice Shot - Pierce - Volley support
Puncture and Burning Arrow are also great for single target
Switch to Lightning Arrow at level 12. Take Precision
Assuming Tabula: 6L Lightning Arrow - Added Cold - Added Lightning - Pierce - Mirage Archer - Ele.damage with attacks.
4L Lightning Arrow - Added Lightning/Pierce - Mirage Archer - Ele.damage with attacks.
5L Lightning Arrow - Added Lightning - Pierce - Mirage Archer - Ele.damage with attacks.
Add Herald of Ice and Thunder when available.
Add Barrage when it's available (lvl.12):
6L Barrage - Added Cold - Ele damage with attacks - Vicious projectiles - Elemental focus (need to get it from another character or buy) - Volley (you will later drop both Volley and Added Cold for stronger gems as you go)
5L Barrage - Added Cold - Ele damage with attacks - Elemental focus (need to get it from another character or buy) - Volley
4L Barrage - Ele damage with attacks - Elemental focus (need to get it from another character or buy) - Volley
At level 31 get Cold Penetration and switch Volley to Slower.Projectiles

======================================================================================
5) My Actual Gear / End-Game Skills
Spoiler



I also tried Voidfletcher but TBH could not find the advantage of shit, void shots are not that crazy and Demise gives important INT.
Overall i use Hyrri's Demise for everything, but for lower content and MF definitely Rigwald's Quills can be used.
I recommend 2 jewels with Blind/Onslaught. I also use one jewel with Phasing.
Other jewels are mostly lighting damage to attacks/bow/penetration/life/resists/dodge/int. You will need 159 INT for lvl.21 Wrath.
Make sure you have Murderous Eye in Tombfists and one Hypnotic Eye somewhere to fully utilize the power of Bubonic Trail.
Place Lioneye's Fall under CLAW wheel.

For Uber Lab enchant: Lightning Arrow Deals 40% Incrased Damage (mapping) / Barrage Fires an Additional Projectile (Shaper/Uber Elder/Bosses)
LA 5L (Bow) Mapping: Lightning Arrow-Ele.Damage.with.Attacks-Hypothermia-Energy.Leech-Greater.Multiple.Projectiles
LA 6L (Bow) Mapping: Lightning Arrow-Ele.Damage.with.Attacks-Hypothermia-Inc.Critical.Damage-Energy.Leech-Greater.Multiple.Projectiles
Barrage 5L (Shroud) Bossing: Barrage-Ele.Damage.with.Attacks-Elemental.Focus-Slower.Projectiles-Energy.Leech
For the gear i would prioritize:
1) Tabula Rasa and any levelling gear
2) lvl.5: Karui Ward
3) lvl.10: Hyrri's Bite
4) lvl.20: Berek's Pass (insane damage early on!)
7) lvl.25: Prismweave
8) lvl.32: Sacrificial Heart
9) lvl.36: Silverbough / Doomfletch (28)
10) lvl.44: Death's Opus
11) lvl.66: Lioneye's Glare / Windripper

======================================================================================
6) Flasks
Spoiler


You can also use Diamond Flask instead of Wise Oak, as well as Cinderswallow urn(Hyrri's Demise gives you fire source of damage). As well as Vessel of Vinktar, although i don't like to be shocked! :)

======================================================================================
7) Pantheon Gods
Spoiler

Major: Arakaali
Minor: Ryslatha

======================================================================================
8) Hardcore Viable or not?
Spoiler

Not recommended

======================================================================================
9) FOR THE RICH GUYS
Spoiler

A lot of things here. Triple Wrath jewels, Precision / 2x Wrath, +2 Shroud, Corrupted Gear, Prismatic Fossils crafted GG bow, GG Assasin's Mark / Warlord's Mark Opal rings. Plenty of Stretch goals.

FAQ
1) I die all the time!
Spoiler
Level up, stack life jewels, use Warlord's Mark. I would consider this build a squishy one, but not SO SQUISHY. I delved just fine ibto 300+ and farmed endless T16 maps without dying

2) What is the best BASE for crafting?
Spoiler

Thicker or Imperial

3) What are the best mods on a Shaper bow?
Spoiler

I will just give you the rundown of the BEST MODS without prefix/suffix attachment.
120% elemental damage
20% more attack damage (cold stacking is about 10% less damage as we are lightning build)
20% Double Damage
Elemental Penetration
Attack Speed
~80% Lightning Damage / Chance to Shock
10% Double Damage
~27% Crit Chance
Attack Speed While Unique / Rare is nearby is INCREDIBLY strong, but i decided to craft 10% double damage instead as it work with everything.

4) How i can craft the most insane BOW?
Spoiler

1) Get a Shaper Bow (Thicker or Imperial Base)
2) Throw Prismatic fossils for 120% increased Elemental Damage till you run out of currency lol
3) Multimod the rest

Can be done. Windripper can be farmed, quiver is not hard to get.
Amulet is pretty impossible, gloves are impossible too i guess, but these are mostly top tier upgrades anyway

Can you guide me on this "pastebin" thing? I can't see anything understandable, and I know there is some trick to how it works. I just can't see it.
The built is nice, I want to try it (once I understand the pastebin) as I already have 6L Lioneye and some others worth trying.
