Anyone know if this is worth using in EP? Also curious if it would proc off of Healing Tide Totem heals.
So looking into this potion's effects, I observed the following:
The healing proc triggers from most healing events caused by your character including
s, and passive personal healing sources (like other players' heals that triggered
on a Brewmaster monk)
Azerite Traits and trinkets that provide healing effects
seem to trigger the potion, but essence effects like the minor on
The healing effect is increased by your versatility when it procs and can crit (which can ALSO trigger
Even with all this in mind, the potion's proc-based nature means it could be overhealing at any time in its duration or fail to heal you when it would be sorely needed. In raw healing (particularly for a Brewmaster), it will likely perform better than the damage provided by
. However, its healing would be significantly worse than the armor provided by a
for defensive purposes if the damage isn't all magic-based. You can likely safely avoid using this potion.
As a Holy Priest doing Mythic+ I was wondering if this could be a interesting alternative to using Superior Battle Potion of Intellect as a second pot during Boss fights after pre-potting with Superior Battle Potion of Intellect for opening damage then using Potion of Wild Mending for the heavy healing later in the fight. However, after testing on a healing target Dummy, I have been unable to notice any additional healing output when comparing 20 casts of greater heal with and without using Potion of Wild Mending.
I removed all trinkets, Azurite gear and neck for simplicities to avoid random effects only equipping rings with mastery and versatility only.
Its very odd as the pot of Potion of Wild Mending states there is chance of additional healing of 5,876 so this effect should have been easy to see in overall healing data.

- There are times where a potion like this can be extremely powerful. I have personally tested it out in battlegrounds and in M+. I will say that it is much stronger in BG's...I actually prefer it over Superior Intel / Unbridled Fury depending on the scenario and size of the group I'm healing....i find myself spamming lots more heals than DPS in epic bg's for example. The fact that this lasts a lot longer than a Superior Intel Potion in a BG should also be considered in your decision making.
As for M+, I think advice about using a dps-focused potion is almost always better...
As a druid, Overhealing kind of came with my job...so this potion doesn't hinder you too much imo...unless it's a scenario where you need to be using a more dps-based potion...which is like most of the time ^_^
I personally enjoy the fact that Alchemy is evolving to be such a huge part of my toolkit...I'm constantly using different potions - i have 4 "battle potions" in my rotation that I alternate between regularly, depending on what i'm actually trying to accomplish...pretty cool :)!
