Best Flasks and Potions for Affliction
Potion of Spectral Intellect is the best choice overall, offering marginally worse single target output compared to Potion of Phantom Fire, but better suited for burst phases and multitarget situations, with a much appreciated consistency.
Spectral Flask of Power should be used as your flask of choice.
Best Weapon Oil for Affliction
Shadowcore Oil should be used as your weapon oil.
Best Armor Kit for Affliction
Best Food for Affliction
If simming yourself results in a different best secondary stat than Mastery, you should eat that food instead.
Augment Runes for Affliction
If you can afford it, you should use Veiled 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.
