Curse Eye is one of the most versatile support hypers in the the current build of the game. He has two modes accessible from his ultimate Mood Swing, which is available at level 1: Nice and Mean (my name). Nice mode gives you access to the more standard support abilities such as buffs, heals and shields. This mode has a slower base attack speed with a higher base damage. Mean mode gives you access to more aggressive abilities such as his petrify, fear, and poison. This mode has a very high base attack speed with lower base damage and shorter range. All of Curse Eye's abilities have separate cooldowns even across modes. They will continue to count down regardless of which mode you are currently in. This will challenge your ability to "feel" about how much longer you need to wait before changing modes unless you want to switch only to use your regular attacks. Curse Eye's abilities work well when used in specific sequences and often can even amplify other hypers attributes when used effectively.

Put one point into this item to start gaining gold over time. You will not be getting many last hits on minions/monsters, so these boots are great for helping your gold gain throughout the match. Finish boots as soon as you begin to get kills and assists, as your gold gain will increase significantly. If this isn't the case, finish this item last, right after Blue Hyper Ring.
Blue Hyper Ring / Nano-tech Band
Put one point into this item at the start of a match to get a ward, then move onto The Blue Gaze. All supports should try to carry this item. As mentioned earlier, Curse Eye can reduce the mana of his enemies with his "Screamer" skill. Nano-tech band further bolsters this trait as its able to decrease enemy mana by 15, as well as completely stopping enemy mana regeneration (on a cooldown).
The Blue Gaze (essential)
This item allows you to petrify enemies regardless of the direction they are facing. Purchase this item before playing Curse Eye, there is really no replacement for it.
Vital Crystal / M.E.D.I.C. System
Vital Crystal significantly increases your healing output and your poison output. You can also opt for M.E.D.I.C. system if you don't like/have Vital Crystal, it's a strong basic defensive item.
Mark of Chaos / Titan Suit
Mark of Chaos increases your shield size and fear duration, but you can use Titan Suit if you don't like/have the unique. Titan Suit increases your healing and has a synergistic effect with Duality.
Duality / Omniwatch
Every time you press Mood Swing you heal. Seems good. Also the only way to reduce your ultimate's cooldown. If you don't like/have Duality, you can use This item increases your CDR cap and pushes your movement speed to cap.
