There's nothing to cleanse. The spell doesn't hit until his channel completes. That big ray above your head is part of his cast animation, and it's just an animation.

It used to be much worse when the shield purged any debuffs on the target on cast, and absorbed more damage. She's fairly balanced. I agree with you, but of course the shield is strong enough irritate people with debuffs that don't deal damage.

Cleanse won't work since it's not a debuff but I was in a game where someone claimed they had Flashed out of it right before it hit. Haven't been able to verify it yet but it seems possible if timed appropriately.

flash? that sounds doubtful but possible. Cleanse used to remove the 'debuff' that preceeds Kathus's ulti, but the debuff was just there, basically, to put the little impending-doom graphic above everyone's head. It's a channeled spell that deals damage at the end, they could remove the debuff from the equation completely, cleanse shouldn't have worked on it. If cleanse would work, they'd have to make his ulti not be channeled and rather insta-cast with a 3sec delay before kaboom -- essentially a map-wide, long CD, no aoe, Zilean bomb..


Fairly certain that Highlander Yi doesn't get bothered by shrooms either. Not 100%, but it's a slow and he's immune to those. Let's just say that if Yi still takes damage from Teemo's shrooms while in Highlander there's no call for the blind component of Exhaust to not affect him... and I'd be pretty upset at the discontinuity across abilities.

One time she plowed threw 5 of em in several seconds. Was incredibly annoying early mid game as thats teemos main defense against ganks.

Anyways, I'm not looking for strategies around it or anything (I adapted, had to spread em out and put them in out of the way places) but I'm pretty sure this is a bug no? And that she was exploiting it?

I do the same thing with Udyr's turtle stance.
