In Path of Exile 3.8, Lightning Arrow was always a popular choice for leveling, but rarely was it used in the end-game. I kind of fell in love with LA during my Kinetic Blast leveling process and decided I am gonna min-max it and push through Uber Elder and all content to see where "borders" are. This build does not struggle anywhere and just breezes through all content including Uber Elder and such.

In Path of Exile 3.8, Lightning Arrow was always a popular choice for leveling, but rarely was it used in the end-game. I kind of fell in love with LA during my Kinetic Blast leveling process and decided I am gonna min-max it and push through Uber Elder and all content to see where "borders" are. This build does not struggle anywhere and just breezes through all content including Uber Elder and such. It has the 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 no-one gives a damn about lightning jewels.
But the best part is the whole smoothness of the build. You literally take 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!
This Build FAQ
Why I die all the time?
- 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 into 300+ and farmed endless T16 maps without dying
What is the best base for crafting?
- Thicker or Imperial
What are the best mods on a shaper bow?
- 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 works with everything.
How I can craft the most insane bow?
- 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) Multimode the rest
PROS & CONS:
+ 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
- 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.
