1. Gems for Blood Death Knights

You should use Quick Lightsphene Icon Quick Lightsphene (or the cheaper Quick Dawnlight Icon Quick Dawnlight) in all sockets.

2. Enchants for Blood Death Knights

Slot Enchantment

3. Consumables for Blood Death Knights

Flask of Ten Thousand Scars Icon Flask of Ten Thousand Scars should be used for raids along with Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power as your potion of choice. You should eat Lavish Suramar Feast Icon Lavish Suramar Feast for the buff to your Strength (or the cheaper Hearty Feast Icon Hearty Feast if you cannot afford the +500 food); as a non-feast option, you can use Azshari Salad Icon Azshari Salad. Note that you must switch to Frost or Unholy before eating the feasts (and then back to Blood afterwards) in order to obtain the Strength buff, as otherwise you will receive Stamina. Astral Healing Potion Icon Astral Healing Potion can be used in place of Healthstones, although Healthstones are preferable.

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.
