1. Gems↑top

You should use Immaculate Mastery Taladite Icon Immaculate Mastery Taladite (better) Greater Mastery Taladite Icon Greater Mastery Taladite (cheaper), or Mastery Taladite Icon Mastery Taladite (even cheaper) in all sockets.

3. Consumables↑top

3.1. Food

For Fel-Lord Zakuun, you should eat Felmouth Frenzy Icon Felmouth Frenzy. The proc of Felmouth Frenzy is RPPM, so it is not affected by movement (it will still proc as often in a movement-heavy encounter like Zakuun). The value of Felmouth Frenzy does not scale up with additional targets, as stat-based food does, but this is not a problem for Zakuun, given that this is a purely single-target fight.

In other situations, you should always eat food that gives you Mastery. You will be granted:

3.2. Flask

Your flask should be a Draenic Intellect Flask Icon Draenic Intellect Flask or a Greater Draenic Intellect Flask Icon Greater Draenic Intellect Flask (better).

3.3. Rune

Your rune should be a Focus Augment Rune Icon Focus Augment Rune. Note that you can also use the empowered version with a 1-minute cooldown that you get from Tanaan Jungle:

3.4. Potion

During the encounter, your best choice for a potion will be Draenic Intellect Potion Icon Draenic Intellect Potion.
