Additional information[edit]

Buff modifier_eul_wind_waker_thinker: Undispellable. Persists death.
Buff or Debuff, based on the target's alliance modifier_wind_waker: Dispellable with any dispel.


  • Double clicking the item casts it on self.
  • When cast on allies or enemies, applies a cyclone effect upon cast, turning them invulnerable and fully disabled.
    • When cast on self, silences, mutes, and disarms the user.
    • Right-clicking the ground causes the user to get moved via forced movement at a speed of 360.
    • Since it uses forced movement, it ignores the user's turn rate, and allows the user to path through cliffs and trees.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Infused Raindrops icon.png Infused Raindrops can block the magic damage from Eul's Scepter without triggering Blink Dagger icon.png Blink Dagger's cooldown.
  • 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.
