About Our Author and Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Blixius, a top Arcane Mage who raids in Bird is the Word.

1. Gems for Arcane Mage

You should use Quick Lightsphene Icon Quick Lightsphene in all sockets. It is never worth using Saber's Eye of Intellect Icon Saber's Eye of Intellect, regardless of gear level.

2. Enchants for Arcane Mage

Slot Enchantment
Neck
Back
Rings

3. Consumables for Arcane Mage

Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power is the best choice for all situations.

Flask of the Whispered Pact Icon Flask of the Whispered Pact is our flask of choice.

Lemon Herb Filet Icon Lemon Herb Filet is our go-to food, granting 1% total Versatility (475 in total — 100 more than any other secondary stat food).

Since Patch 7.3, Healthstones now heal for 25% of the user's maximum health. This means that any player with more than 1.92 million health should always use Healthstones over Ancient Healing Potion Icon Ancient Healing Potions whenever available.

If you can afford it, you should also use augment runes (which work in both raids and Mythic+ dungeons). Defiled Augment Rune Icon Defiled Augment Rune is the cheap rune with a one-time use. Lightforged Augment Rune Icon Lightforged Augment Rune costs 40,000 Gold and requires exalted reputation with the Army of the Light faction.
