Skill functions and interactions
Note: The majority of the following information is outdated, referring to Cyclone as it was before 3.7.0.
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. Cyclone uses pathfinding to reach its target, so the character won't necessarily travel in a straight line.
While Cycloning, the player is immune to stun and knockback. Death, being frozen, and Bear TrapsBear TrapTrap, Spell, Duration, Physical

After the immobilise expires, a debuff remains on the enemy for a duration, lowering their movement speed by an amount which lessens over time. The affected enemy will take increased damage from traps and mines until the debuff expires. Modifiers to spell damage do not affect this skill's damage.Per 1% Quality:

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.
