SWTOR: Complete Guide to Cleansing in PvP (5.9)

Rambol and I have just finished work on a guide to cleansing in PvP. Cleanse (known as “Dispel” in other games) is an underused ability, even among seasoned players. Learning how to cleanse will raise your gameplay and make you a greater asset to your team, whether you are a healer or DPS. We hope this guide will be useful to players of all skill levels.

We cover the basics, including a breakdown of effect types, and more nuanced ideas like cleansing priority. We’ve included a cheat sheet so you can check which effects can be cleansed by which disciplines. We also give some suggestions for optimizing your UI so you can cleanse more quickly and accurately.

This guide is the culmination of a lot of hours of research and testing but if there are any errors or omissions, please let us know.

Both sniper hardstun/root are listed as physical not tech. Maim and Leg shot.

Yup, Maim and Leg Shot have physical effects and are correctly listed as such in the guide.

Yeah, you got a sticky on the way for sure.

Very nice, thank you for the time and effort, I'm sure it will be very helpful for many players unlike myself who think that cleansing is something you only do once a month =p

The guides are great, this one's a keeper too. Well done.

Must be from pros to pros.

I just use them when i have 3+ debuffs or slows or when i see that someone is mezzed. I can barely keep in mind my own buffs, not to mention debuffs from my enemy. Too much information for me to process.

It helps to activate “show only cleanable debuffs”, this will filter out a lot of crap and make it easier for you to identify which debuffs are ones you should cleanse. Remember that the debuffs that have the most value in cleansing are ccs which are have 6 unique icons. In pvp these are the only ones you should be paying attention to, which makes it easier.
