1. Gems for Arcane Mage

You should use one Kraken's Eye of Intellect Icon Kraken's Eye of Intellect, and then the best simming secondary stat in all your other sockets (often Deadly Amberblaze Icon Deadly Amberblaze).

2. Enchants for Arcane Mage

Slot Enchantment
Rings
Weapon

3. Consumables for Arcane Mage

Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Battle Potion of Intellect is the best choice for all situations.

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

Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast is our go-to food. If your raid is not using feasts, you should use Honey-Glazed Haunches Icon Honey-Glazed Haunches (or your best-simming stat) instead.

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

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.
