Build overview



Boss DPS:



Tornado Shot is one of the most popular Bow Skills, it does not need an introduction. Omniscience refers to the stats granted by Crystallised Omniscience Amulet, it's transformed Strength, Dexterity, and Intelligence combined. It makes you penetrate all Elemental Resistances of your opponents, all give your character Elemental Resistances. You will no longer get Accuracy or Evasion from the usually-abundant Dexterity, you will need to get some more of it from your gear, but that's no issue. This type of build underlines the importance of Attribute-stacking, the more of it you have, the more damage and Resistances you will get. It's even possible to have no Resistances in all of your gear pieces, which is actually the preferable option, as both - Resistances and Attributes are Suffixes and vie for this turf, not to mention there's also Spell Suppression to get there.

There are two ways to approach this build - to go for mixed damage with Trinity, or to completely convert all your damage to cold. For a Trinity version, the physical damage does not have to be converted by equipping the anomalous version of a tornado shot, the regular one is good. With trinity, the majority of your damage will be elemental from the start. it is accomplished by seeking modifiers for added fire, cold, and lightning damage. the bow will play a huge role here, but The purely-cold Damage version needs an expensive bow too, one that deals physical damage. In the cold version, you will need to convert all that Damage to Cold - it can be usually done with the already-mentioned Cold Mastery, Rare Gloves, or even Watcher's Eye. This guide will cover both versions, It's hard to say which one is better or cheaper, it depends on the price trends and items availability.

The survivability is not a priority here, as it is not for any Deadeye build, but you can still benefit from around 20k of Evasion on top of 3 or 4k of Maximum Life. Grace is an obligatory Aura, but there may not be enough space for Determination. The easiest solution to the fragility issue may be gaining the Wind Ward Keystone from a pair of Forbidden Jewels. As for the Ascendancy itself, pick the most standard Ricochet, Endless Munitions, Gathering Winds, and Focal Point. It will make the build extremely fast and deadly, perfectly suited for fast mapping and killing the regular bosses. It is however not suited to deal with Uber Bosses. The build is very expensive.

1. Gameplay

Use the Tornado Shot to deal with all kinds of opponents. The secondary setup that consists of Ballista Totem Tornado Shot can be deployed during boss fights. For movement use the basic Flame Dash, for a Guard Spell - Steelskin or Molten Shell depending on how much Armour you have. Sniper's Mark should be triggered automatically with Mark on Hit Support. Use Blood Rage as well to generate Frenzy Charges, gain Life Leech, and Attack Faster. For Auras, use Grace, Hatred, Precision, and Herald of Purity. If you went for the Trinity version, you don't have to use Hatred - you can use Determination or a Defiance Banner instead.

2. Build's PROS & CONS

  • one of the best builds in terms of clearing, if not the best
  • easy to set up, the most popular build using Crystallised Omniscience
  • it's a glass cannon build
  • very expensive, requires uniquely rare items


3. Leveling tips

Start with Ice or Lightning Shot - you can easily get extra Cold Damage from your Passive Skill Tree and convert the remaining 40% of Damage with one Cold Mastery. You can level up this way until yellow or red maps, so at this point, you should be able to equip all the necessary items. You can switch to Tornado Shot at a low level, given you can easily convert the Damage to Cold. Hrimsorrow Gloves may be good for this purpose. Most Unique Bows will be very good. Keep your Elemental Resistances High and remember to pick Maximum Life from the Skill Tree. Seek mostly added Physical or Cold Damage on the items.

5. Final Gems links

[DPS] Tornado Shot setup
Tornado Shot Tornado Shot - The main Attack you will use. It fires multiple Arrows that then "split" into three Arrows each. These secondary arrows can hit the same target if originated from a different primary Arrow. Use the Anomalous version if you plan to include Trinity Support AND have a bow with tons of Physical damage, and if not - the Divergent.
Elemental Damage with Attacks Support Elemental Damage with Attacks Support - Increased and more Elemental Damage with Attacks.
Inspiration Support Inspiration Support - Reduced Mana Cost, Increased Elemental Damage, and Critical Strike Chance.
Increased Critical Damage Increased Critical Damage Support - Your Critical Strike Chance should reach 100%, or be very close to it. Use this Gem for more Critical Damage.
Greater Multiple Projectiles Greater Multiple Projectiles Support - Use it to fire more Projectiles. Tornado Shot scales great with the number of Arrows even against single targets.
Vicious Projectiles Vicious Projectiles Support - Use it for more Physical Damage, later converted to Cold. Replace it with Trinity Support Trinity Support if you plan to use it.
[DPS] Ballistic Tornado Shot setup
Tornado Shot Tornado Shot - Another Tornado Shot, here it is used by Ballista Totems.
Ballista Totem Ballista Totem Support - The linked Bow Attack is used By Ballistas you can place, three by default.
Focused Ballista Totem Focused Ballista Totem Support - Ballista Totems will fire as your character does, so much faster than their default Attack Rate allows them to.
Elemental Damage with Attacks Support Elemental Damage with Attacks Support
Greater Multiple Projectiles Greater Multiple Projectiles Support
Inspiration Support Inspiration Support
[UTILITY] Mark and Blood Rage setup
Sniper's Mark Sniper's Mark - By far the best Curse/Mark, it makes the target receive increased Projectile Damage, and splits the Projectiles Hitting it.
Blood Rage Blood Rage - Use it for an increased Attack Spee, Life Leech, and Frenzy Charges on Kill. It drains your Life.
Mark on Hit Mark on Hit Support - Sniper's Mark will be applied automatically on Hit against though enemies.
Enhance Enhance Support - Increasing the Quality of linked Skills in this setup will greatly improve your DPS, but their cost may be too high. It that's the case, replace it with Lifetap Support Lifetap Support​​​​.
[UTILITY] Auras setup
Grace Grace - Use Grace for more and increased Evasion Rating.
Hatred Hatred - Hatred grants more Cold Damage and adds extra Physical Damage as Cold. It's great if you have a Bow with a lot of Physical Damage, but if you plan to use Trinity Support Trinity Support in your Tornado Shot setup, you already need a Bow with a lot of added Elemental Damage, so it may not be suitable. Determination Determination is another good option to use instead, it grants you more Armour. Herald of Ice Herald of Ice can be used for more DPS.
Herald of Purity Herald of Purity - Grants more Physical Damage, later converted to Cold. It's not very good in the Trinity version as your base Physical Damage is not high, to begin with. If that's the case, use Anger Anger instead.
Enlighten Enlighten Support - Increases Mana Reservation Efficiency for all linked Skills.
[UTILITY] Precision
Precision Precision - Adds Accuracy Rating and increases Critical Strike Chance. If you have spare Mana, try to level it all the way up.
[UTILITY] various Gems
Flame Dash Flame Dash - Flame Dash is used to quickly Teleport over a short distance.
MoltenShell Molten Shell - Molten Shell prevents a portion of incoming Hit Damage, it's able to absorb more of it the more Armour you have, so if you don't run Determination, switch to Steelskin Steelskin instead.
Lifetap Lifetap Support - Linked Skills will cost no Mana, but Life.

5. Gear Setup

Crystallised Omniscience completely changes many aspects of how you gear up. You should be able to get around 2000 Omniscience with a min-maxed gear, maybe even 2,5k in extreme cases. The Unique gear pieces, besides the amulet, are all optional, but the most popular option seems to be a well-rolled Black Sun Crest. The build is often used with Headhunter Belt as it fits really well into this insanely-fast-mapper archetype. Rare Items are in most cases the best options in a long run. Remember that you don't want items that scale up with Attributes, as you don't have any Attributes. Most Items should have a Prefix with Maximum Life and Suffixes with Attributes and Spell Suppression. Chaos Resistance may be an issue as it's also gained from Suffixes, so to avoid it use a Flask or proper Patheon options. The best source of Accuracy is Precision, but it can also be found in Rings, Helmet, Gloves, Amulet, and Bow. Damage penetration is not very useful here, you don't need to apply Exposure. You already Penetrate a lot of Elemental Resistances. Focus more on Added Damage, Critical Strike mods, and Attack Speed instead.

Our recommended items will:

  1. Cap your resistances 
  2. Give you enough DPS/Life to start mapping successfully

Stat priorities on items:

  1. Maximum Life
  2. Dexterity
  3. Strength and Intelligence
  4. Elemental Resistances (until capped)
  5. Accuracy Rating (until reaching 100%)
  6. Mana Reservation Efficiency
  7. added Attack, Projectile, Elemental Damage
  8. Attack Speed
  9. Reduced Mana Cost
  10. Critical Strike and Chance Multiplier
  11. Chaos Resistance
  12. Chance to Suppress Spell Damage
  13. Chaos Resistance
  14. increased Damage

40% reduced Light Radius
(5-15)% increased Dexterity

You can also play the trinity version with a physical bow, and that would require the anomalous tornado shot.

Lethal Pride(Jewel) Lethal Pride - Lethal Pride is better than Brutal Restrain as the notable modifiers it grants are often more useful. Both of these Historic Jewels can be used for more Attributes, but you can have only one equipped. Socket it near Fervour.
Denoted service of (500-8000) dekhara in the akhara of (Asenath-Balbala-Nasima)
Passives in radius are Conquered by the Maraketh
