im watching some league of legends championship video's and i notice that in finals TPA vs AF the support dont use clairvoyance spell instead flash and exhaust.im also playing as support and watching the video makes me think if it is much better use exhaust than clairvoyance in support

Most supports pack Exhaust now, it gives you lane advantage like no other spell and it's good late game as well. Clairvoyance suffered cooldown nerfs that render it less optimal.
Thank you Byron for 2014's loudest laugh up till today

Jungle just isn't what it used to be; In the good ol' S1, supports knew the enemy jungle route was to the second. They could CV the DG camp, and if the DG were still alive, the support just saved his lane from a gank.

Season 3 is showing some buffing up for the creatures, but with the unpredictability of the jungle, CV just isn't as good as it used to be. Plus, depending on the support, they might be able to get in range of the ADC and exhaust them, which in a team fight, is always more useful than a simple CV

Really all depends on what your theory was. If you want alot of map control and plan on doing alot of invading CV can be exceedingly useful. If you're more focused on getting lane domination and letting your jungler farm his jungle and gank almost exclusively, exhaust is more useful.

Bottom lane is currently about strong pokes and engagements. Exhaust is for engagements in lane, and singling out people in fights. In team fights, being able to shut down an enemy is often more supportive than Clairvoyance.

M5 used it a bit in IPL5, or at least the games I watched.

Some popular support choices now are:

Heal/Flash
Exhaust/Flash
Ignite/Flash (strange, but actually kinda popular, with AD going heal/flash.)
CV/Flash

Thanks to jhoijhoi and LaCorpse for the amazing sigs!

Clairvoyance got a buff in Season 3. Guess we'll have to see who find it viable.

It's viability will depend on the jungle.

Exhaust is so much better than Clairvoyance especially now in season 3 that ward items is already implemented.

No one else can see, the preservation of a martyr in me.
