  • Cyclone first applies the invulnerable, then the dispel.
  • While in the air, the cycloned unit 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. The damage is still applied.

Recommended Heroes[]

Heroes whose default item build includes Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon.png Eul's Scepter of Divinity as a core item will upgrade item to Wind Waker during late game:

Lina icon.png
  • Provides Lina with movement speed bonus that synergizes with Fiery Soul, and gives her a much needed escape mechanism.
Shadow Fiend icon.png
Puck icon.png
  • With a stronger Cyclone added to Puck's kit, Puck can be nearly unkillable.
Death Prophet icon.png
  • More movement speed bonus for Death Prophet, Cyclone helps her isolate an enemy or to set up long team fights in favor of her team.
Void Spirit icon.png
  • Eul's Scepter of Divinity icon.png Eul's Scepter of Divinity is a core item on Void Spirit because of how well it combos with Aether Remnant. The Intelligence attribute symbol.png intelligence bonus increases his mana pool and right-click damage output. Wind Waker also provides Void Spirit with extra movement speed for mobility and an escape mechanism.



  • Use the Cyclone offensively by disabling an enemy before a gank, giving you the time to set up your abilities.
  • Use the Cyclone on fleeing enemies to give your team the time to surround the target.
  • Use the Cyclone on enemies in teamfights to take them out of the fight for a few seconds. This is especially effective on carries.
  • Use the Cyclone on yourself during teamfights, baiting enemies into using their abilities on you, then becoming invulnerable to interrupt their burst damage.
  • Use the Cyclone 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.
  • Use the Cyclone 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.
  • Eul's Scepter 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 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.
