1. Gems↑top

You should use Haste Taladite Icon Haste Taladite (cheaper) or Greater Haste Taladite Icon Greater Haste Taladite (better) in all sockets.

3. Consumables↑top

3.1. Food

You should always eat food that gives you Haste. 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.

3.4. Food

During the encounter, your best choice for a potion will be Draenic Mana Potion Icon Draenic Mana Potion or Draenic Intellect Potion Icon Draenic Intellect Potion, depending on how much Mana regeneration you have. If you are using the Soul of the Forest Icon Soul of the Forest/Dream of Cenarius Icon Dream of Cenarius build, then Intellect is probably the better choice.

Alternatively, you can use Draenic Channeled Mana Potion Icon Draenic Channeled Mana Potion during the fight, which restores you more Mana, but does so over 10 seconds seconds (provided you do not need to perform any action during this time).
