Holy Trinkets question

I have:
Stolen Relic of Zuldazar
Double upgrade Relic of Chi-Ji
Single upgrade Spirits of the Sun

Which two should I be using? I got the Stolen Relic on the last attempt of tonight's raid so I couldn't really test it.

On another note, can someone please explain to me why Soothing Talisman of the Shado-Pan Assault is good when you can only get so few uses of it per fight?

Because you get a lot of mana from it. It's roughly equivalent to a constant 1-1.4k, depending on fight duration.

It's also really user friendly, in that it doesn't require much thought and won't proc at a pointless time.

Go with Relic of Chi-Ji and Soothing Talisman of the shado-pan assault.

The link goes in depth on how mana regen differs from trinket to trinket, which is why I chose the above 2 (incase you don't like the gimmickness of the Stolen Relic).

I would stick with Relic of Chi-Ji for one slot at least. It was one of our top three trinkets last tier, behind the heroic versions of Spirits of the Sun (Tsulong) and Qin-xi's Polarizing Seal (H Will), and a reasonable argument could be made that it was/is still better than the latter due to its reliability. Note that I am directly comparing the 476 Relic to the heroic T14 trinkets (509 and 502 respectively) without including any upgrades at all.

Now, the Stolen Relic trinket is, for the lack of a better term, pretty awful. It doesn't proc anywhere near often enough to justify losing the Intellect from other trinkets - Inscribed Bag of Hydra-Spawn appears to fare slightly better on average but is basically still a hunk of junk.

Boring, honest answer that pretty much every raiding Holy Paladin would agree to is to stick with Int/Spirit (or Int/regen) trinkets. That would mean, for now, Relic/Spirits. Upgrade Spirits to Soothing Talisman when you get the VP, it would be a pretty substantial upgrade both in Intellect value and MP5.
