You should use Saber's Eye of Intellect Icon Saber's Eye of Intellect in one socket, and Versatile Maelstrom Sapphire Icon Versatile Maelstrom Sapphire in all other sockets.

2. Enchants

Slot Enchantment
Neck
Back
Rings

3. Consumables

Flask of the Whispered Pact Icon Flask of the Whispered Pact should be used for raids. You should eat Lavish Suramar Feast Icon Lavish Suramar Feast for the +500 Intellect buff (or the cheaper Hearty Feast Icon Hearty Feast if you cannot afford the +500 food). Alternatively, you can eat Seed-Battered Fish Plate Icon Seed-Battered Fish Plate for the Versatility buff (or Koi-Scented Stormray Icon Koi-Scented Stormray, if you cannot afford the +375 food). Ancient Healing Potion Icon Ancient Healing Potion should be used in place of Healthstones.

Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power is the best choice for potion use.

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).
