This guide has been reviewed and approved by:

1. Gems

You should use Saber's Eye of Agility Icon Saber's Eye of Agility in one socket, and Deadly Deep Chemirine Icon Deadly Deep Chemirine (or the cheaper Deadly Eye of Prophecy Icon Deadly Eye of Prophecy) in all other sockets.

2. Enchants

Slot Enchantment
Neck
Back
Rings

Enchant Neck - Mark of the Hidden Satyr Icon Enchant Neck - Mark of the Hidden Satyr is a better option for DPS and can be considered if you feel like more damage would be an asset, or you are on farm content.

3. Consumables

Flask of the Seventh Demon Icon Flask of the Seventh Demon is the best choice overall unless survivability is an extreme issue. If you find you need extra health, particularly to survive a large chunk of bursty damage, you should instead use Flask of Ten Thousand Scars Icon Flask of Ten Thousand Scars.

Your potion choice is a matter of context and personal preference. Unbending Potion Icon Unbending Potion is the most defensive potion, and a good choice for any situation as it can be used as an extra defensive cooldown. Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power is another good option, as it provides a good hybrid of offensive power and defensive usefulness, and is very cheap. It also lasts a full minute, giving you a lot of time to spread around your power increase.

You should eat Lavish Suramar Feast Icon Lavish Suramar Feast for the +500 Stamina buff (or the cheaper Hearty Feast Icon Hearty Feast if you cannot afford the +500 food). You can also get +500 Agility by respeccing to Windwalker and then eating the feast before speccing back to Brewmaster.

Since Patch 7.3, Healthstones now heal for 25% of the user's maximum health. This means that any player with more than 1.92 million health should always use Healthstones over Ancient Healing Potion Icon Ancient Healing Potions whenever available. This is especially significant for tank specializations like Brewmaster as our health pools are very high.

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 50,000 Gold and requires exalted reputation with the Army of the Light faction.
