Best Flasks and Potions for Arcane

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

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

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

3.2.

Best Food for Arcane

You should eat from the Famine Evaluator And Snack Table Icon Famine Evaluator And Snack Table when possible, and otherwise Critical Strike food (Mech-Dowel's Big Mech Icon Mech-Dowel's "Big Mech" or the cheaper Honey-Glazed Haunches Icon Honey-Glazed Haunches).

If simming yourself results in a different best secondary stat than Critical Strike, you should eat that food 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.
