About Our Author

This guide has been written by Azortharion, the main theorycrafter of the spec. He is also an accomplished player who raids in Vanguard. You can also watch his stream on Twitch.

1. Gems

You should use Saber's Eye of Agility Icon Saber's Eye of Agility in one socket, and Quick Dawnlight Icon Quick Dawnlight 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 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 should also be used when at low health.

Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power is almost as good as Old War and even better for sustained multi-target periods, or when you need extra DPS for an extended period of time. If DPS is not a primary concern in the encounter, and especially if add DPS is important, use this potion.

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).
