Maganda gamitin si Cyclops way way back S8 pa yata. Dumaan kasi sa maraming adjustments si Cyclops kaya napahina siya ng napahina. At ngayong Magical Lifesteal na ang effect ng dating core item niya na Concentrated Energy, wala na siyang sustain ngayon di tulad ng dati. Kagaya na lang siya ng normal na mage na for burst damage and CC na lang.



Mababa ang carrying capacity ni Cyclops. Mas maganda pang bumuhat gamit nila Odette or Vexana in my opinion na kasama niya sa mga bottom tier mages.

Now let's move on to Skill Analysis

~~~Skill Analysis

Ang passive niya ay 0.5 CD Reduction sa bawat skills na tatama sa kalaban.

First skill niya ay 'yong AoE Damage na straight line ang kayang matamaan.

Second skill niya ay 'yong main damage source niya na 5 planets tapos may movement speed buff.

Ultimate skill niya ay 'yong ikukulong ang kalaban pero immobilize effect lang 'yon not stun kaya makaka-atake pa rin ang kalaban.

Ang Basic Skill Combo niya ay:

Ult > 1 > 2

Pwede ring Ult > 2nd skill palayo para hindi ka maatake pero make sure na tatama pa rin 'yong planetary attack mo > tsaka ka mag1st

Prioritize Skill 2 more than Skill 1 in leveling up

~~~ Preparation

Mage Emblem ang Recommended sa kanya. Talent niya ay depende sa playstyle mo.

Mystery Shop kung Gamay mo na siya kasi parang Assassin ang galawan mo dito. Ikaw ang mang-aambush dapat and Ahead ka sa Items and XP

Magic Worship naman kapag Burst build ka. As in Damage ang focus mo not Cooldown Items ang nasa build mo.

Impure Rage naman kapag hindi ka makakakuha ng Buff. Mana talaga and extra damage ang ibinibigay ng talent na ito.

Spell

Retribution lang ang recommended spell ko para sa kanya. Kailangan kasing ahead si Cyclops sa Gold and XP para maging effective sa laro. Burst Magic Damage Talaga ang Role niya. Extra na lang 'yong CC niya coming from his ultimate skill

Set builds:

1st set: Max CD Reduction

Rapid Boots
Enchanted Talisman
Fleeting Time
Holy Crystal
Necklace of Durance
Glowing Wand

2nd set: Lollipop

Arcane Boots
Clock of Destiny
Lightning Truncheon
Holy Crystal
Necklace of Durance
Glowing Wand

3rd set: Anti-Makunat

Rapid Boots
Holy Crystal
Glowing Wand
Necklace of Durance
Divine Glaive
Bloodwings

1st set should be paired with Mystery Shop
2nd set should be paired with Magic Worship
3rd set should be paired with Impure Rage

~~~Gameplay

Early Game

Buy Hunter's Knife then upgrade it to Pillager Axe.

Have a lane partner that clears the wave fast.

Get the goldcrab as much as possible and get buff if available.

Aim to get all 3 turtles within 8 minutes.

Aim to get 3 items (Pillager Axe, Boots plus another full build item) within 6 minutes.

Your priority is to help in teamfights not to push so you need to trust your teammates.

Midgame

Farm more if you are behind in terms of Gold and XP.

Get 10 Stacks for your Pillager Axe within 10 minutes.

Be aggressive if you are ahead in XP and Gold by killing enemies along with a teammate (preferrably a CC Hero)

Late Game

Cyclops utility decreases as the game goes latter. Your best utility now is your ultimate skill so make sure to choose the best target.

Do not try to get to the enemy's backline.

Shred the frontline with your burst damage coming from first and second skill.

~~~ Pro Tips

1. Avoid Mistargeting your ultimate skill because it sometimes target a jungle monster instead of an enemy hero

2. Having a hard time escaping? I will tell you ways to escape

Use your ultimate skill to immobilize enemy hero

Use your retribution to slow enemy hero

Use your second skill to boost your movement speed

3. The previous Cyclops META is getting Max CD Reduction. But today's META requires you to be a CC hero.

That is why you have Rapid Boots for some slow effect.

Retribution also can slow enemy heroes by equipping Pillager Axe.

And an item that you might want to consider even though it is not much use by most players

"Ice Queen Wand"
