Cyclone is an skill that initiates a spinning series of attacks as the player travels to a target location.

Skill functions and interactions

Cyclone spins at the player's attack speed and deals area of effect damage twice per spin. When dual wielding, each weapon hits once per spin.

Movement: Cyclone moves to a targeted location at the player's movement speed. It cannot target an enemy. Clicking further away means the character will go further, but as soon as Cyclone starts, the character can't be controlled and will continue spinning until the final destination. Therefore, high movement speed will allow the player to start another Cyclone in a different direction sooner. However, high attack speed and low movement speed allows for more hits on a stationary enemy.

The minimum travel distance is 10 units.[1]

will still stop movement. Movement will also stop upon hitting an object. The player can pass through enemies for the duration of the attack. Note that this is not considered Phasing.

Though Cyclone has the movement keyword, using it will not drop the Karui spirit during a Haku mission.

Area of Effect: The base radius of Cyclone is determined from the edge of the character's hitbox (which has a radius of 2) to the edge of the melee weapon range,[2] i.e


 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} \text{Cyclone radius} = \text{Weapon range} + 2


The base radius can be further improved by the Master of the Arena and Razor's Edge passives, Daresso's SaluteDaresso's Salute

, a unique item mod on certain weapons, or a lucky weapon corruption (up to +2). This base radius is then further augmented by increased Area of Effect Radius and increased Radius of Area Skills.

Note that, since the base radius is so small to begin with, quality on the gem will never provide more than 1 extra unit of range, and thus isn't necessary to get to 20% in order to get full potential out of it in the vast majority of cases. Consult the available area of effect calculators to determine the exact Cyclone gem quality necessary to reach the next radius threshold.

Range: 2 (base character range) + 9 (base Prismatic Eclipse range) + 2×6 (white socket bonus from the two swords) + 2 (Daresso's Salute) + 1 (Warlord's Reach) + 3 (tree notables) = 29 total base radius.

Total range with the flask: 29 × √3.62 = 29 × 1.92 = 55.7 (rounded down to 55).

Version history

Version Changes
2.1.0
  • Attack skills that have their damage based on the wielded weapon have their mana costs fixed in place from level 1 onwards.
  • There was a display bug that caused Cyclone to show the wrong DPS value and attack speed. We have fixed this bug, so you'll now notice the visual DPS almost double and the attack speed on the gem shoot up a lot. In addition, we have reduced the damage of Cyclone by around 10% and have reduced the damage of its initial hit.
2.0.0
  • Reduced the mana cost at all levels. It now grants 0.5% increased area of effect radius per 1% of quality (was 1% per 1% quality).
1.3.0h
  • Fixed a bug related to Cyclone where its stats could apply for a while after it ended.
1.3.0
  • Cyclone now attacks slightly slower and has an equivalent increase to damage. It now deals damage immediately when it is used, in addition to periodic damage. Cyclone no longer targets enemies, only locations.
1.2.1
  • We no longer treat Cyclone as a movement skill for the cases of Karui Spirits or flags in Capture the Flag.
1.2.0
  • This skill can no longer be supported by the Multistrike support gem.
1.0.2b
