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 your 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 your move speed. It cannot target an enemy. Clicking further away from you means you will go further, but as soon as you start Cycloning you cannot control your character to stop and will continue spinning until you have reached the final destination. Therefore, high movement speed will allow you to start another Cyclone in a different direction sooner. However, high attack speed and low movement speed allows you to hit a stationary enemy more times.
  • 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 melee weapon range measured from the edge of the character's hitbox (which has a radius of 2). The base radius can be further improved by the Master of the Arena passive, Daresso's Salute, or Warlord's Reach. This base radius is then further augmented by increased Area of Effect Radius and increased Radius of Area Skills.
  • Multistrike: Cyclone cannot be supported by Multistrike.

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
  • Fixed the skill tooltip damage per second display for Cyclone.
0.11.1
  • Melee skills with Damage Effectiveness have been changed to having a "Deals % of Base Damage" stat.
0.10.4
  • The damage effectiveness of Cyclone has been increased from 35% to 40%.
  • We have also reduced the minimum distance it travels, so that you have more control.
    This distance is now about a third of what it was previously.
0.10.3
  • Cyclone has been added to the game.
