Skill Functions and Interactions

Cyclone spins at your attack speed and deals AoE damage twice per spin. When Dual Wielding, each weapon hits once per spin.

Cyclone moves to where you clicked at your move speed. Clicking further away from you means you will go further, but as soon as you start cycloning it cannot be stopped from your own and will continue until you have reached the final destination.

Death, Freeze and Bear Traps will still stop you. While cycloning you are immune to Stun and Knockback.

High attack speed and low movement speed allows you to hit a single enemy several times, with higher movement speed it's possible to start another Cyclone sooner.

The area of effect radius of cyclone is determined from melee weapon range measured from the edge of the character. Master of the Arena passive adds +2 to Melee Weapon and Unarmed range increasing the base radius of the skill which can be further augmented by increased Area of Effect Radius and increased Radius of Area Skills.

Base radius of cyclone for various weapon types is as following:[1]

  • Two Handed Axe - 7
  • Rapier - 7
  • One Handed Sword - 6
  • Staff - 6
  • Two Handed Mace - 6
  • Two Handed Sword - 6
  • Dagger - 5
  • One Handed Axe - 5
  • One Handed Mace - 5
  • Claw - 5
  • Sceptre - 5
  • Unarmed - 4
