    Here is a PTR log of of a 5:26 wipe on Mythic Hellfire Council with 3 throughput healers using the HFC Leech trinket (Unstable Felshadow Emulsion):

    https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/7H9kjV1GKLbADwfZ#fight=16&type=healing&ability=143924

    Only 3 of the 5 healers were using the trinket, yet combined those 3 trinkets did about 40 million healing, beating every single healer, including the 102k hps mistweaver monk. Thats right: 3 of these trinkets is equivalent to adding an additional chart-topping healer to the raid.

    This trinket will absolutely be BiS for every HoT healer, and once we have multiple of them it will have an enormous and noticeable impact on raid health stability.

    Side note: dear god the MW healing. Set bonuses 15% of his total HPS...

    Second side note: dear god the lifebloom healing.

    A full raid of blood dk's with this trinket can clear the instance on mythic.

    Even after the nerf to this trinket, it is still best in slot for any raid healer. See the below link in which Geodow analyzes mistweaver trinkets. The leech trinket in its worst case scenario is better than all other trinkets in their best case scenarios. I imagine that will be as true for rdruids, rshammies, and hpriests as it is for mistweavers.

    Additionally, the healing from the leech trinket scales quadratically, with both the casting healer's gear and the receiving healees' gear: better healer gear means higher hps means a larger leech buff; better dps/tank gear means higher dps means more healing derived from leech. No other trinket scales so favorably, making this one even more desirable.

    It is most likely that this trinket is BiS for holy pallies as well, however it is (probably?) better in the hands of HoT/Raid healers. Throughput healers will have smaller, more constant leech buffs on more people; holy pallies will leave much larger leech buffs on fewer people. The trinket will therefore probably be better in the hands of throughut/HoT healers because they will have less overheal from it than holy pallies will.
