    [Holy] New Trinket Ratings

    Does anyone have a breakdown of how the new trinkets in 5.2 match up for holy? As far as I can tell, the 522 trinkets are:

    Soothing Talisman of the Shado-Pan Assault
    Horridon's Last Gasp
    Inscribed Bag of Hydra Spawn
    Stolen Relic of Zuldazar
    Lightning Imbued Chalice

    All except the first trinket have both heroic options and thunderforged options, but I don't really know how to quantify these trinkets to compare them. Has anyone else done the analysis so I can see?

    I'm going for Horridon's Last Grasp and I'm keeping my upgraded 517 Spirits of the Sun for long fights. For sheer throughput, I recommend using Horridon + Lightning imbued chalice
    I found this trinket analysis and it really helps:

    be great choices for a pally healing 25? With the Shields and us stacking mastery to boot? and all the passive regen?

    There's a couple factors, the biggest one, imo, is that those static spirit trinkets should go to your resto shaman ahead of anybody else, so it might be tough to get your hands on them early on anyway.

    The next factors is that they just aren't as "ideal" as the Int+Spirit/MP5 proc trinkets. The shields could potentially be a boost in throughput, but it comes at the sacrifice of something more reliable.

    Those trinkets are definitely "good", but I wouldn't ditch a standard Int+Spir/Mp5 proc for them. Now if you're upgrading from LFR Qin'Xi or something, than it would definitely be a solid upgrade =)

    Our raid got the Inscribed Bag of Hydra-Spawn last night and I decided to try it out. The proc rate is extremely low on it and it's random who the shield is applied to so sometimes it will go overhealing. For some fun numbers, our Ji-Kun attempts last night here are the proc numbers. The shield heals for 28018 each time. After awhile I passed it over to the shaman for good.

    The trinker procced off what seems like healing rain, earth shield and riptide so it should proc off hots. I think it would be excellent for a druid. Although for this fight I mostly sat on the platform and twiddled my thumbs as the shaman was the platform healer. It's just that the proc rate seems low and I'm essentially losing 1200 int. Whether it makes this up in terms of 2% healing? I have around 16000 int with the trinket so it's boosting my int by just under 10% which I think trumps the 2%. Maybe that was the wrong fight to try it on but I'd rather stick with my current trinkets for now.

    Yes, I picked this one up on a coin roll thinking I'd be a tad more pleased in getting it. Thanks for the spirit, but the proc is just underwhelming, very underwhelming. I ended up swapping back to Radiance until another one comes along.

    I really do hope GC comes through and buffs some of these ToT trinkets (not just healing ones). Been hearing a lot of grumbles about the state of procs off them.
