So yeah, nothing else to add except that if it's intended... there is really no reason left to play concealment instead of deception....

Made a ticket about this bug two days ago. But I guess it will be ignored just like all the other bugs I've reported. <3 BW

No it's not. Evasion is a purge. Read the patch notes.

Looks it is working as intended. Sorc dots can not be purged anymore, that's what bioware did in order to upgrade them.

Electronet was not sufficient to prevent concealment operatives to tag in pvp, so now Ops have to deal with an other stupid retarded threat. Conceal Op was already not viable but still too much viable in bioware's eye.

Bioware compensated this huge nerf by upgrading a useless ability (overload shot) so it is still useless, but they can say it is compensation ...

Bioware is just trolling concealment operatives now, may be are they laughing hard at those who still play this spec...

Bioware hates concealment spec. I even suspect they regret to have implanted a stealth back stabbing gameplay in their game.

In addition to previous effects, Devour now prevents the damage-over-time effects applied by Creeping Terror, Discharge, and Crushing Darkness from being cleansed.

Purge /==/ Cleanse.

Cleanse - Removes a limited number of a certain type (or types) of negative effects, usually Force or tech, from the target.
Purge - Removes all negative dispellable effects from the target, usually yourself.
The Sith Sorcerer's Purge ability has been renamed Expunge.
NOTE: Many ability tooltips have been changed to clarify whether an ability cleanses or purges negative effects from a target.

What this guy said.

The basic 4 sec evasion skill still purges madness dots, it's the 1 sec proc from the concealment tree who doesn't.

I don't know why, because it clearly says 50% chance to trigger Evasion for 1 sec.

Evasion = Purge ability
Toxic scan = cleansing ability
