Note: I don't find healing wall necessary for questing unless you are with a high-need group, but you might need to make the switch if the party needs more healing than usual. For raids you will need to make this change every time because you never know when you might be called into healing mode even if there is another primary healer.

Boss Fight Swaps
For boss fights you should always swap to clouded dreams and legendary queen's sceptre for extra crits and spellpower. You should also swap in respendlent fury for all your light/alignment spells and back to the shield after those spells. Light and alignment spells benefit up to 50% vulnerability from shield of condemnation so maxing out this damage with resplendent fury is highly beneficial.

Spell Power and Spell Crits

These #s assume the following swaps during boss fights
1) Clouded Dreams in place of Legendary Shattered Onyx (add 10% exceptional lore and 20 exceptional spellpower)
2) Legendary Queen's Sceptre in place of Legendary Prince's Sceptre (adds 77 insightful potency and 33 spellcraft)
3) Legendary Resplendent Fury in off-hand in place of Legendary Alchemical Shield for just light/alignment portion of spell rotation (adds 18% insightful radiance lore and 107 insightful radiance spellpower)

Outside of boss fights you can use your judgement and swap as needed but I find DPS optimization is most important for boss fights.
