Re: Healing Draigoch
I'll agree that you use whichever traits line you feel comfortable with.
My average geared minnie so far managed to complete all Draig raids. Traited 5y/2b with Protector of Song, Harmony stance. Mitigation and Will/Fate provided by dual Tales (Tale of Warding and Heroism), while 3 Anthems (Anthem of Prowess > Anthem of the Free Peoples > Anthem of War) provided DPS and mitigation/morale regen buffs somehow eased the healing needed to go for every fellows, especially the squishies. My Anthems are coupled with duration legacy.
I could get away with Major>Perfect>Major Ballads, so I could put an anthem quickly. Non-Harmony Major Ballad is just so slow to become useable when charging in the claw.
Your quick heals are your best friends here, traited Raise the Spirit and Improved Chord of Salvation (with -cooldown legacy). I find it useful for quick healing squishies when they're critted by the claws, and in phase 3 when you'll be consistently interrupted by Draig shaking the gound.
Take advantage of Cry of the Valar's group HoT.
Pop your bubble before you stack up with your fellows. At least this give you time to disregard yourself for a while and focus on your fellows, stacking Ballads and Anthems.
Also, it goes without saying that pair up with a good Captain helps alot
