Enchants, Gems and Consumables for Assassination Rogue
This section specifically covers the optimal gems, enchants, food, and flasks to use for your character. To get a more detailed rundown of the different stats for Assassination Rogue, please visit our dedicated Stats page.
Best Gems for Assassination Rogue
You should use Leviathan's Eye of Agility in one of your sockets and either Quick Jewel Cluster or Deadly Jewel Cluster in your other sockets, depending on whether you want to focus on raiding or Mythic+.
Best Enchants for Assassination Rogue
You will want to run Enchant Weapon - Lightless Force on both your weapons for Mythic+.
It is always recommended to sim yourself to find out what enchants provide the best benefit to you individually.
Consumables for Assassination Rogue
Best Flasks and Potions for Assassination
Spectral Flask of Power is our flask of choice.
Since Patch 8.0.1, Healthstones no longer share a cooldown with health potions. This means that players should always use Spiritual Healing Potions and Healthstones whenever available. The Potion provides much better Healing than a Healthstone.
Best Food for Assassination
The best food buff is provided by the Feast of Gluttonous Hedonism but it is quite costly; alternatives are Tenebrous Crown Roast Aspic or the cheaper Cinnamon Bonefish Stew. For Mythic+, you will want to use Spinefin Souffle and Fries or the cheaper Butterscotch Marinated Ribs instead.
Augment Runes for Assassination
If you can afford it, you should use Veiled Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. These will be very rare and scarcely available at the beginning of the expansion, so it is best to stock up for when you really need them.
