PoE 3.9 Duelist Tornado Shot Champion Starter Build (PC,PS4,Xbox,Mobile)

This Champion Tornado Shot build pushes the limits of defense and DPS that a bow build can achieve. If you are looking for bow build that is much higher in defense while still having insane damage this build achieves just that.

Quick Jump

Pros & Cons

  • + Clear speed
  • + Defense
  • + Single target
  • + Stun immune
  • + Great league starter
  • + High absorption Molten shell / Vaal molten shell
  • - Predictive mode is a must once you get fork, limiting HC viability
  • - Cant use Queen of the forest
  • - Laggy on lower end PCs
  • - Min-maxing can be expensive
  • - Arborix bow effect makes a lot of mtx look weird


Skill Tree

Bandit: HELP alira

Passive Tree & PoB

These trees are assuming you have some currency to put into the build, leveling uniques and atleast 1 lioneye's fall. If you are starting fresh with 0 currency check the google doc at the top of the page for league start trees

level 45 tree -> level 70 tree -> level 90 tree with lioneyes falls + abyss jewel for onslaughtlevel 70 tree: You should either take a mana leech node on the right side of the tree or have a craft/jewel with it by this point

Gems Setup


Barrage > Impale > Brutality > Maim > Vicious Projectiles > Slower Projectiles

Tornado shot:

Tornado shot > Mirage Archer > Greater Multiple Projectiles > Impale > Chain > Brutality
the 6th link can be changed for fork if you do not have rigwald's quills and also for maim if you have headhunter.

Useful 4 links

Dread banner > Enhance > Blood rage > Dash
enhance grants more damage for dread banner, attack speed for blood rage and cooldown for dash

Pride> Precision (level 1) > Flesh and Stone > enlighten

Chances are your character will be too dumb for enlighten, mana is fine without it

CwDT (level 6) > Vaal Molten shell (level 13) > increased duration

I use a level 6 cwdt because if you press vaal molten shell when molten shell is not on cooldown it can proc while you still have a large vaal molten shell active, having level 6 atleast lets you get 5-7k damage from the VMS before it procs.

You can not use cwdt and self cast molten shell, I actually advise it for things like shaper and hall of grandmasters.


Gear Setup

The Bow

Adds 115 to 264 Physical Damage

90% increased Evasion Rating

Bow Attacks fire 2 additional Arrows

Every 16 seconds you gain Iron Reflexes for 8 seconds

30% more Damage with Arrow Hits at Close Range while you have Iron Reflexes

30% increased Attack, Cast and Movement Speed while you do not have Iron Reflexes

You have Far Shot while you do not have Iron Reflexes

Simply put the Arborix can not be beat, a 600 PDPS bow in path of building will only be roughly 10% at the most dps increase and that doesn't include the arborixs rotating passive. It is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to either 28% quality through hillock in syndicate transportation or 30% corrupt because the bow itself has a ton of flat added phys but no %phys so 1% quality is almost equal to 1% more damage. If you can some how get a 28% quality bow with a %phys corruption and high flat roll it will be unbeatable by mirror tier bows in terms of DPS


Tornado Shot fires 2 additional secondary Projectiles

Nearby Enemies take 9% increased Physical Damage

If you have infinite currency I would always say devoto's but a rare helmet will be a lot more health and damage at a much lower cost. The helm enchant is very strong but you should focus on having a 6link chest and 5link arborix before looking into helm enchants


There are many options in the glove slot, vuln on hit is a luxury and not needed at all but is something you could eventually go for. I personally just like haemophilia's but tombfists are probably better overall. You could go for Rampage gloves or even just a nice rare piece if you want more life and resists.

Body Armor

183% increased Armour and Evasion

+74 to maximum Life

0.41% of Physical Attack Damage Leeched as Life

6% chance to Dodge Attack Hits

You lose all Endurance Charges when Hit

You gain an Endurance Charge on Kill

You gain Onslaught for 5 seconds per Endurance Charge when Hit

100% increased Onslaught Effect

Another slot with a few options, if you go the vuln on hit gloves route I would still advice having assassin's mark on a ring so getting +1curse on chest isn't a bad idea. Daresso's Defiance is simply the only good chest we can use with movespeed on it because our bow gives us iron reflexes which removes our evasion


30% increased Global Accuracy Rating

+7 Life gained for each Enemy hit by your Attacks


20% reduced Projectile Speed

49% increased Projectile Damage

Projectiles Fork

Rigwald's Quills looks like an obvious choice and it is good but if you craft a maim/attack crit chest you can get away with replacing brutality in tornado shot 6link with fork and get a quiver with lots of crit and health


You probably knew it was coming but Headhunter is too good for clearing, there are a lot of options before that though. The nomad on league start cost me 4c for a high rolled belt and 3c for the prophecy to upgrade it and I used it until HeadHunter. However Ryslata's Coil is more damage and more health it just doesn't say so in Path of Building. It is around 17-20% more damage vs the nomad around 11-12% more damage. If you want to be tankier and need resists a fossil crafted stygian will be your best bet


You can apply an additional Curse

+30% to Global Critical Strike Multiplier

If you want vuln on hit gloves you will need +1 curse as a corruption on your neck or crafted on your chest. I bought my neck for 2exa but the price of good +1 curse necks have gone up quite a bit. If you are not going duo curse you want Crit multi/% Damage craft with life and resists


Curse Enemies with Level 12 Assassin's Mark on Hit

Assassin's mark will feel the best for clearing and you can get it either from a shaper ring or the oskarm gloves. You should try and have at least a +400 accuracy roll on one of your pieces of gear as it will take your chance to hit from around 94-96% to 100% 


These uniques are very strong on league start before 6 links are available for cheap, I had even killed shaper with them. I would not recommend using them mid-league because 6link chests are fairly cheap and the Arborix bow is a lot cheaper.

Lioneye's Vision, Death's Opus, Drillneck, The Nomad, Oskarm
