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

Skill functions and interactions

  • 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.
  • While Cycloning, the player is immune to stun and knockback. Death, being frozen, and Bear Trap inventory icon.pngBear TrapsBear TrapTrap, Duration, Cast

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.
