1. Gems

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

2. Enchants

Slot Enchantment
Neck
Back
Rings

3. Consumables

Flask of the Seventh Demon Icon Flask of the Seventh Demon should be used as your flask. You should eat Nightborne Delicacy Platter Icon Nightborne Delicacy Platter for the Mastery buff (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.

3.1. Potion Choice

Potion of the Old War Icon Potion of the Old War and Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power are the potions of choice in Legion. Both options are quite close in power on a single target. Old War is generally better for burst windows and favours good strings of Stormbringer Icon Stormbringer procs and is very strong during Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust, whereas Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power is better for general use or if Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust has already been used. Prolonged Power is always better if 2+ targets are present or will be present at some point during the potion's duration. It also has the advantage of being much cheaper and is therefore the clear choice for farming Mythic+ dungeons.

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).
