6. Notes / Tips / Additional Info

6a. Abilities & Talents
Abilities
Power Word: Shield - Use on cooldown, can be held for a specific player if a large amount of damage is about to occur.
Power Word: Radiance - Replaces the use of Plea when 5+ Atonements are active as Plea starts becoming less mana efficient, can be used for applying multiple Atonements quickly.
Shadow Mend - Becomes better than Plea if the target will get the full heal and 5+ Atonements are active, use when targets are low health.
Penance - Use of cooldown, only delay casting if damage is going to occur in the next 3-5 seconds while you have Atonements already prepared. Do not cast if below 20% mana and you need mana to prepare Atonements.
Smite - Used as a filler ability.
Shadow Word: Pain / Purge the Wicked - Keep active on the boss all the time, can be used on ads if they take the full duration of the DoT if not then it’s not worth the mana.
Light's Wrath (artifact ability) - Becomes a very powerful healing cooldown when used correctly, becoming increasingly better the more Atonements are active.
Power Word: Barrier - Our utility cooldown which can provide 25% damage reduction if grouped, becomes a second healing cooldown when combined with N'ero, Band of Promises (ring legendary).
Shadowfiend / Mindbender - Don’t forget it’s not just a damage cooldown but also a healing cooldown as it heals all targets with Atonement active.
Rapture - Used to apply a large amount of Atonements.
Plea - Primarily used for applying Atonements and not the actual heal.
Fade - Very useful 30 second cooldown which provides 10% damage reduction from Vestments of Discipline (artifact trait) when you use Fade.

Talents
Schism – Becomes very powerful when combined with an on-use trinket (e.g. Draught of Souls) or Light's Wrath (artifact ability) . Regardless of providing higher damage and healing output Schism isn’t recommended due to high maintenance and mana cost.
Dominant Mind– Very useful in bolstering affix mythic+'s since it doesn’t get stacks due to the target becoming friendly.
Mindbender – Use when you want to provide higher damage and healing output when you don’t need the extra mana gained from Shield Discipline (highest mana regen talent).
Power Infusion - Situational cooldown which becomes essential where extra mana and haste are needed to prepare for upcoming heavy burst damage.
Divine star - Use on stack-heavy encounters instead of Halo.
Grace - Use on encounters which require frequent spot healing.

Overall discipline priest in raids provides excellent burst healing with mediocre sustain healing, when our cooldowns are properly prepared and timely correctly we can heal the whole raid from 10% to 100% health, while the only limitation to our healing is mana and how much we can cast Power Word: Radiance.

6b. Legendaries

N'ero, Band of Promises - One of the best legendaries when an encounter requires players to stack, best used in combination with Castigation.
Velen's Future Sight - The highest healing output legendary, very powerful in combination with N'ero, Band of Promises.
Cord of Maiev, Priestess of the Moon - Very powerful legendary but at the cost of being mana consuming, if mana isn’t an issue then this provides a great increase in both healing and damage output. Amplifies the performance of Penance by increased usage which in turn increases our Castigation talent and Confession trait.

In collaboration with Luxanna
