1. Gems for Arcane Mage

You should use Saber's Eye of Intellect Icon Saber's Eye of Intellect in one socket, and Masterful Argulite Icon Masterful Argulite in the rest. If your sims show a different secondary stat as the best, you should use a gem of that stat instead.

2. Enchants for Arcane Mage

Slot Enchantment

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.

Lavish Suramar Feast Icon Lavish Suramar Feast is our go-to food, giving 22 Intellect, which is by far our best stat. If your raid is not using feasts, you should use Nightborne Delicacy Platter Icon Nightborne Delicacy Platter, giving 17 Mastery.

Healthstone Icon Healthstones heal for 25% of the user's maximum health. This means that any player with more than 28604 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.
