This is the best disc legendary by a considerable margin, you can expect it to contribute between 7-12% of your healing on average, but its real strength lies in how it lets you deliver that healing. Using Velen's Future Sight you can convert disc’s immense raid healing into extremely high single target burst with a fairly short cooldown. A good example would be Star Augur’s Icy Ejection, you don’t know who they’ll be on beforehand and they need heavy healing, with Velen's Future Sight you simply pre-atone essentially random people as normal, pop Velen's Future Sight as they go out and spam damage for the duration.
The Prydaz shield is buffed by our absorb trait, making this a very strong legendary for us.
The choice between Xalan the Feared's Clench and Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus depends mostly on incoming damage, the more damage you take the better Xalan the Feared's Clench becomes compared to Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus.
The Pain Suppression reduced cooldown is a nice perk but the real value is the increased Power Word: Shield amounts, for overall hps its numerically inferior to Prydaz, Xavaric's Magnum Opus or Xalan the Feared's Clench, however there are certain damage patterns of situations where as a healer you’re damaged significantly less than others or the increased Power Word: Shield amounts help with extremely heavy single target damage.
You should always use the following consumables to maximize your healing:
You always want to prepot a Potion of Prolonged Power (Deadly Grace damage is nerfed, specifically for disc) and consume some form of mana pot in the fight. On most fights there are 10 second windows of no or low damage, you should co-ordinate with your healers so you can get the full leytorrent channel off.
