2. Enchants

Slot Enchantment

3. Consumables

Flask of the Countless Armies Icon Flask of the Countless Armies should be used for raids along with Potion of the Old War Icon Potion of the Old War as your potion of choice. 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). Ancient Healing Potion Icon Ancient Healing Potion can 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).
