1. Gems

You should use Saber's Eye of Agility Icon Saber's Eye of Agility in one socket, and Quick Dawnlight Icon Quick Dawnlight in all other sockets.

2. Enchants

Slot Enchantment
Neck
Back
Rings

3. Consumables

Flask of the Seventh Demon Icon Flask of the Seventh Demon is the best choice overall unless survivability is an extreme issue. If you find you need extra health, particularly to survive a large chunk of bursty damage, you should instead use Flask of Ten Thousand Scars Icon Flask of Ten Thousand Scars.

Your potion choice is a matter of context and personal preference. Unbending Potion Icon Unbending Potion is the most defensive potion, and a good choice for any situation as it can be used as an extra defensive cooldown. Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power is another good option, as it provides a good hybrid of offensive power and defensive usefulness, and is very cheap. It also lasts a full minute which is helpful if you want to spread out the potion effect rather than have a stronger spike in a shorter burst. Finally, Potion of the Old War Icon Potion of the Old War is the best choice for pure damage output and can be a great choice for pushing tight damage checks.

You should eat Azshari Salad Icon Azshari Salad for the Haste buff (or Suramar Surf and Turf Icon Suramar Surf and Turf if you cannot afford the +375 food) or Nightborne Delicacy Platter Icon Nightborne Delicacy Platter if you already have 30% Haste (or Barracuda Mrglgagh Icon Barracuda Mrglgagh if you cannot afford the +375 food). Ancient Healing Potion Icon Ancient Healing Potion should be used in place of Healthstones.

If you can afford it, you should also use the Legion augment rune: Defiled Augment Rune Icon Defiled Augment Rune. Note that it now works in Mythic+ dungeons (it did not used to).
