Cyclops ML Build, Spell, Emblem, and Strategy Guide

Never seen someone handsome with one eye?

Cyclops is a versatile hero who can be played in a variety of roles. He is often played as a mid laner, but he can also be played as a support or a jungler. Cyclops is a powerful hero who can be a valuable asset to any team.

So, if you’re a novice Mobile Legend player who wants to kill an enemy in just a combo or wants to play all the roles in just one hero, you might want to consider following this Cyclops ML build guide to help you master him.

Who is Cyclops?

Cyclops is a Starsoul Magician in Mobile Legends. He is a mysterious celestial traveller who came to the Land of Dawn thousands of years ago. He is known for his powerful magic and his ability to draw power from celestial bodies.

Cyclops Skills Set

Passive: Starlit Hourglass

Cyclops’ skills cooldown is reduced by 0.5 seconds whenever it hits an enemy.

First Skill: Stardust Shock

Cyclops releases two black holes dealing magic damage. If the two black holes successfully hit an enemy, it can potentially reduce the skill cooldown by up to 1 second.

Second Skill: Planets Attack

Cyclops spawn five spheres around him dealing magic damage and increasing his movement speed.

If all the spheres landed on a single target enemy, it could reduce the skill cooldown by up to 2.5 seconds.

Ultimate: Star Power Lockdown

Cyclops invokes a giant sphere, chasing and rooting the enemy target and dealing magic damage.

Custom Mage Emblem

Cyclops emblem build, Mobile Legends: Mage talent with Inspire, Festival Blood, Lethal Ignition

This custom Mage Emblem build emphasizes Cyclops’ sustained damage potential and ability to secure kills in the early to mid-game. Here’s a breakdown of why it works well for him:

  • Inspire: Inspire temporarily increases Cyclops’ attack speed and ignores a portion of the enemy’s defence. This synergizes amazingly with his ultimate, which fires rapidly, allowing him to shred through targets that get caught.
  • Festival of Blood: Provides Spell Vamp, which means Cyclops gains health back whenever his abilities deal damage. This offers some needed sustain in lane and during team fights.
  • Lethal Ignition: This talent complements Cyclops’ area-of-effect skills. When his abilities damage multiple targets, Lethal Ignition applies additional burning damage over time, maximizing his damage output, especially in chaotic fights.

Cyclops Gameplay Tips and Strategy

Getting fast items and a high level is what you need to do when playing Cyclops.

Laning Phase

Start with a magic necklace and boots if you want to be a mid-laner. These items will help you survive the lane and spam your skills. For the spell, make sure to select the Flicker for escape ability.

Routine: Mid lane → Jungle → Gank → Clear lane → Gank

Jungle type: Start with boots and upgrade it to Demon Shoes if you’re going to focus on burst damage. For the spell, select Retribution so you can farm fast and kill monsters quickly.

Routine: Jungle → Lane → Gank → Jungle → Gank → Lane (repeat)

Tip 1: Don’t stay in the jungle for too long. Consider visiting lanes and helping teammates to get possible pickoffs since you have a lockdown.

Tip 2: When ganking, use Star Power Lockdown first; next is Planets Attack(2nd skill), then Stardust Shock(1st skill) for the finishing combo.

Tip 3: If you’re having a hard time killing an enemy tank, build Divine Glaive and Glowing Wand.

Tip 4: If you’re planning to make a solo kill, clear your lane first and avoid chasing near jungle monsters because Cyclops Ultimate often targets jungle monsters, so try to avoid that.

Best Battle Spell For Cyclops


Mobile Legends Retribution icon, recommended battle spell for Cyclops

Note: I’d suggest that you use this spell after 50 matches of using Cyclops or until you master his game style. Cyclops lack escape abilities, and if you’re inexperienced, you will easily get killed by the enemy.


Mobile Legends Flicker icon, recommended battle spell for Cyclops

To be an effective Cyclops user, you must master the two essential skills: Map awareness and Positioning. You can initiate a clash but always stay behind your tank for a continuous nuke to enemies, and always check your minimap for a possible team fight.
