- Early Viability: It's an excellent starter build suitable for both early and late game.
- Mobility and Clear Speed: It boasts impressive movement and clear speeds, ideal for mapping.
- Scalability: With minimal early-game investment, you can still enhance its efficiency substantially in the late game.
- Low Defense: As expected of archers, you mainly rely on evasion and swift movement.
- AoE over Single Target: While it shines in area-of-effect (AoE) damage, its single-target damage output can be limiting.
- Gear Dependency: To maximize its potential, you'll often need specific gears, which can be a con for many players.

I've been using the Eagle Siege Ivory Bow. When purchasing, aim for a bow with a minimum of 1,000 elemental damage. Perfect rolls should include critical strike chance, attack speed, and additional benefits like resistances.
While both the Lightning Arrow and Tornado Shot builds have their pros and cons, the Tornado Shot changed my gaming experience drastically. It's become a favorite, and I highly recommend it to other PoE enthusiasts.
