Best Raiding and M+ Potency Conduits for Discipline Priest

Since Spirit Shell is the primary playstyle with the Kyrian covenant, then the Courageous Ascension conduit and Exaltation synergizes along nicely making for the top two covenant selections. Swift Penitence is a middling increase, predominantly for Mythic+, where every potential damage increase can make the runs go more smoothly but Shining Radiance is more helpful when dealing with aoe damage for the extra bonus healing it provides.

Endurance conduits are much better and more universal than Finesse conduits. Between raids and Mythic+, you'll often want to run the same conduits.
