On this page, we list the best gems, enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Arcane Mage in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1. We also give budget alternatives.

1. Best 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. Best Enchants for Arcane Mage

Slot Enchantment
Rings
Weapon

3. Consumables for Arcane Mage

3.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Arcane

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.

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

3.2. Best Food for Arcane

Sanguinated Feast Icon Sanguinated 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.

3.3. Augment Runes for Arcane

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.
