Modifiers [?]


  • Cyclone first applies the invulnerability, then the dispel.
  • While cycloned, the affected unit is moved upwards and has no collision. However, a pathing blocker is created at the base of the cyclone within a 24 radius.
  • The damage is applied at the end of the duration. If the cyclone gets dispelled, it still applies the damage as soon as the target lands.
    • The damage is only applied to enemy targets.
  • Can be cast on Roshan icon.png Roshan, but has no effect, since Roshan is immune to forced movement. However, the damage is still applied.

Recommended Heroes[]

  • Cyclone can be used in the following situations:
    • Offensively by disabling an enemy before a gank, giving you the time to set up your abilities.
    • On fleeing enemies to give your team the time to surround the target.
    • On enemies in teamfights to take them out of the fight for a few seconds. This is especially effective on carries.
    • ↓↓ Double-tapping during teamfights, baiting enemies into using their abilities on you, then becoming invulnerable to interrupt their burst damage.
    • To buy yourself a little more time for abilities and items to come off cooldown, especially items like Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger or Blade Mail icon.png Blade Mail.
    • On an enemy who has activated items like Blade Mail icon.png Blade Mail, Mask of Madness icon.png Mask of Madness or Lotus Orb icon.png Lotus Orb. Doing so will waste the duration of those items.
  • The item provides a cheap and beneficial dispel for support heroes who are very susceptible to silences. So when facing a lot of silences, or other strong but dispellable effects, Eul's Scepter of Divinity is usually the best option.
  • The bonus movement speed works well with other items that increase movement speed, such as Phase Boots icon.png Phase Boots.
