So now that it's become just a bit more relevant due to Binding Heal's newfound strength, I'd like to talk about a bug that has to do with the new gold trait Holy Priests recieved in 7.2, Cosmic Ripple. This bug has been around since CR was introduced, and still hasn't been fixed to this day. Update 9/7/17 - Cosmic Ripple Fixed Since posting this, Cosmic Ripple has now been fixed and no longer procs multiple times as discussed in this post. 3 and a bit months later and Cosmic Ripple is not still broken... What is Cosmic Ripple? Cosmic Ripple was Holy's fourth golden artifact trait introduced in 7.2. It's a pretty strong increase, doing 3-4% of your healing while also triggering Echo of Light. It's worth nothing that the original implementation of the trait was bugged badly. Upon Cosmic
Binding Heal has had a hard time this expansion, starting with 7.0 where Surge of Light was really valuable, and continuing into 7.1.5 when we moved on to Piety as our primary raiding talent choice on the T75 tier.

Update 27/6/17 Over the weekend some of the Blizzard
As the opening of the Tomb continues to inch closer, more and more questions of what our best in slot (BiS) list is. With the titanforging system currently in place, and the fact that we gain value from every stat, it is impossible to come up with a definitive list of the best items for every slot since a piece from a dungeon, trash mob, even previous Legion raid could proc high enough and become BiS. The only items we can feasibly develop a BiS list for are Trinkets, and Relics. That said, a very important part of Tomb is the tier gear we get access to. We are lucky in that we have one of the most powerful if not the most powerful set bonus of all the healing classes.
