Consumables for Affliction Warlock

4.1.

Best Flasks and Potions for Affliction

Potion of Unbridled Fury Icon Potion of Unbridled Fury is the best choice for situations with up to 3 targets. After that, start using Superior Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Superior Battle Potion of Intellect or Potion of Empowered Proximity Icon Potion of Empowered Proximity.

Greater Flask of Endless Fathoms Icon Greater Flask of Endless Fathoms should be used as your flask of choice.

Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal Healing Potion should be used alongside Healthstone Icon Healthstones for emergency healing.

4.2.

Best Food for Affliction

Famine Evaluator And Snack Table Icon Famine Evaluator And Snack Table is our go-to food. If your raid is not using feasts, you should use Abyssal-Fried Rissole Icon Abyssal-Fried Rissole (or your best-simming stat) instead.

4.3.

Augment Runes for Affliction

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.

Starting in patch 8.3 you can also use the re-usable Lightning-Forged Augment Rune Icon Lightning-Forged Augment Rune to increase your primary stat by an equal amount.
