It is harder for some since the new patch. But it is only cause they broke the cleanse for sage healers on the last fight. Have submitted tickets on this but have gotten no response. Commandos can still cleanse the rakghoul virus during the last fight but sages can't. Not sure if its all of us sages that had it break or just me and the other sage I play with when I tank.
That the stacking pink needle icon that you get from the puddles? Sorc cleanse works fine as when I cry for a cleanse from our healer they vanish.
