It's a fine combination - in fact it's very common.

Illuminated Healing, Power Word: Shield, Divine Aegis, and Spirit Shell are all different spells. They don't "stack" in the sense that they add to one another. However, you can have more than one of each on you at any time. I believe that the absorb order is determined by duration, but I'm not 100% on that.

It's been a while since I checked, but they were the most common composition in 5.1 for sure, and likely still for 5.2 overall. The bubbles do not override/hurt each other. The math on that I am not 100% sure of, but I *think* iirc Pallies mastery bubbles will be first in line to hit. Regardless it's a strong combination with incredible burst heals and high utility w/ added dps via Atonement.

So, someone can correct my math if I am wrong, but (very dumbed down version here) last I checked, long time ago, if a pally has a bubble for 2damage on a tank and the priest has a bubble for 10. The tank gets hit for 3 damage, the Pallies mastery will take into effect first and bubble for 2, and then the disc priests bubble will absorb the remaining 1 damage and still have the rest of the bubble remaining.
(If my math is wrong, it's not by much as if anything, it'd just be flipped, disc first, holy second. But I'm pretty certain it's pally first)

They don't "gimp" each other, but the disc priest, should appear lower on most fights (all things being equal - skill/gear etc and not counting incredible atonement fights, such as Horridon) but nothing drastic.

I think min/max for 10man, that's probably still the flat out best 2healing combo. I exclude monks because I know absolutely nothing about them. And pretty much every other class of healer synergizes very well with that combination as well.

Couple fights where there's extremely predictable damage (Horridon comes to mind) on a 1 min timer may end up with Disc Priest pulling out fairly far ahead, but that's because it caters to SS in a way most fights no longer do.

I would think that, but if that's the case, shouldn't SS shine as well on Megera? I admittedly am not schooled in the ways of Pallies at all, but our pally and myself obliterate our Disc priest on Megera. And, I've just noticed our Priest just by in large, most of his healing via Atonement on Horridon?

Yeah, I've benched my priest, havn't raided any 5.2 with her:P

Well, remember that SS is range-limited by who you cast PoH on. So the spread on Megeara isn't helpful (we spread in two "clumps" but they aren't necessarily in the same party, and people are constantly moving). I don't actually get to cast SS until I'm in the stack point, which means the damage is already incoming. I still use it to give the Druids/Shaman/Pallies a chance to burst back up (Disc just isn't good at that) but it's still going to probably be less HPS than straight PoH spam (if it's 100% effective). When you can front-load the SS before the damage goes out, it works a lot better, as you lose 0 HPS by putting it up during a low-damage period.

Edited to Add: I can't speak to 10 man, but in my raids, I actually spend more time on the adds because they need to go down. I would probably look a lot better if I sat on Horridon the entire time, but that wouldn't really be helpful to the raid. The damage modifier on Horridon can really skew the numbers out of control, though.

Absorbs work in sets. Effects like trinkets > tank abilities > healer abilities. In the case of multiple different effects from the same set, the effect with the lowest remaining duration will get used up first.
