League-of-legends – Cleanse vs. Quicksilver Sash


I am not overly familiar with either this spell or item, but was curious as to which is more effective: quicksilver sash or cleanse. Do they remove the same things?

Also, is it possible to cleanse out of an ignite?

Best Answer

Cleanse removes:

Cleanse is a 'non-targeted' summoner spell. It is mainly used to remove crowd control effects to escape or catch a target. It cannot be used while suppressed but can remove most disabling debuffs. Unlike Quicksilver Sash it reduces new debuffs after all current ones have been removed, making it a more effective escape mechanism.

However, cleanse cannot be used to remove suppression effects:

Cleanse cannot be used while suppresed, and thus can not remove spells like Warwick's Infinite Duress, Malzahar's Nether Grasp and Skarner's Impale.

Quicksilver sash (QSS) removes almost any debuff but does not have the same duration reduction afterwards that cleanse benefits from. QSS is a great buy when you are a target of suppression ultimates.
