Best Raiding and M+ Potency Conduits for Holy Priest

Holy Priest has good value across their conduits and often will get strong value out of many of them. Focused Mending and Holy Oration require minimal extra work from the healer to produce results. Raids always place high importance on Prayer of Mending, Holy Word: Serenity and Holy Word: Sanctify so that should come as no surprise. In dungeons, Prayer of Mending gains a lot more value in Shadowlands now that there is more regular group-wide damage present.

Resonant Words is also a strong option to increase the value of your next Flash Heal especially with the high acceleration of Holy Words in dungeons and raids thanks to Apotheosis and the Flash Concentration legendary. If you have a tank with high self-healing Lasting Spirit becomes a solid conduit in dungeons if they need even greater support.

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

Most of the finesse conduits are very niche or situational in their uses. Often you'll be best off grabbing double Endurance conduits to improve your survivability.
