3.2. Food

For fights that are purely single-target, you should always eat Felmouth Frenzy Icon Felmouth Frenzy, especially if there is movement involved. 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), but it does not scale up with additional targets, as stat-based food does. For this reason, this is the food of choice for Fel-Lord Zakuun.

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

3.3. Flask

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

3.4. Rune

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

3.5. Potion

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

3.6. Two-Handed

3.7. Food

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), but it does not scale up with additional targets, as stat-based food does. For this reason, this is the food of choice for Fel-Lord Zakuun.

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