Tornado Shot Raider

By | August 18th, 2019 | Categories: Ranged Builds

While Path of Exile’s Legion league paved the way for a lot of solid new builds, it also retained some rather old but very much great ones. A good example of this is the Tornado Shot Raider. With a reliable core skill, it’s not a surprise why it’s still a relevant build that’s worth trying out.
