OR, you could realise that EVERY skill you have is situational and has a scale of usefulness depending on how you spec and how you play, in conjunction with what the bad guys do.

So sick of whiny little cry-babies. Thats why the game is getting into this state. To satisfy muppets like the OP.
Oh you mean all the whiney cry-babies like you that pouted that they didn't know you could cleanse a dot to cap an objective? Those cry-babies?

cool, you just cleansed it. and since you are VISIBLY no longer on fire... guess what.. they reapply and your cleanse is on cool down.

Hm, yes, their guaranteed DoT which is 25% of their resources vs. my cleanse which is almost free...

Yes, please do reapply your DoT.

Even for PTs/Vanguards, they have to get almost into melee range to reapply their DoT and it still is far more expensive than cleanse.

You know what's great at mitigating damage?

Running someone else's resources out.

I am aware of that. Gut is the same thing, it's only there so that you can use Railshot. I'm not talking about just that though, all DoTs are weak in this game for the resource cost.

Force Breach for example only does like 15% more damage than Shadow Breach, even though it does it over 18 seconds instead of instantly (and does kinetic damage instead of internal I believe, so actually ends up being less.)

actually you are right. against marauders with this dot specc (watchman in case of sentinels) it is the only usefull damage prevention.

i forgot that due to warzones where i rarly have a one on one situation against a marauder to have this worth doing it.

edit: but it seems my post gets a bit misunderstood. i don't share the opinion of the op. cleanse is still not worthless. though it is not that great damage preventing ability many think it to be (like it was in wow maybe). still a nice one.
