Cleanse is a self-targeted summoner spell. It removes most crowd controls and some summoner spell debuffs.

Strategy

  • Its primary function is to remove active crowd control effects, allowing the summoner to continue pursuit or escape.
  • Cleanse Cleanse will provide 3 seconds of 65% Tenacity after activation, stacking multiplicatively with other sources.
    • This crowd control reduction will have no effect on additional Ignite Ignites but will reduce the duration of movement speed slows from additional Exhaust Exhausts.
  • Cleanse Cleanse is disabled while Suppression icon suppressed, nor will it affect the duration if activated prior.
  • Note that while Cleanse Cleanse is enabled for casting during Airborne icon Displacements, it will not have any effect. Unlike other cleansing effects, such as Remove Scurvy Remove Scurvy, Cleanse Cleanse cannot be combined with Flash Flash (or any dash) to break free of a displacement.
  • Self-CC is merely described as such for flavour and is not truly classified as crowd control. Cleanse Cleanse will neither remove or reduce the duration of self-applied effects.
  • If equipped with the rune Unflinching rune Unflinching, activating Cleanse will grant:
    • 73.225% Tenacity for the first 3 seconds.
    • 23.5% Tenacity for the next 7 seconds.
    • 10% Tenacity afterwards, until Cleanse is off cooldown.

Trivia

  • The tooltip previously stated that Cleanse Cleanse was able to remove the Sleep icon sleep debuff, even before the first champion (ZoeSquare Zoe) with this effect was introduced.
  • Cleanse Cleanse was named Boost up until V0.9.22.15.
  • Prior to V3.13, Ground Slam Ground Slam and Barrel Roll Barrel Roll were the only attack speed slows in the game not connected to a movement speed slow and so were the only attack speed slows that Cleanse Cleanse did not remove.
