Best Gems for Brewmaster Monks

You should use Masterful Sea Currant Icon Masterful Sea Currant (or the cheaper Masterful Tidal Amethyst Icon Masterful Tidal Amethyst) in all sockets.


Best Enchants for Brewmaster Monks

Slot Enchantment

Since Brewmaster Monk stats are so close together, you are free to use other stat enchants if you prefer them. We do not recommend the Armor weapon enchant at the moment.


Consumables for Brewmaster Monks


Best Flasks and Potions for Brewmaster

Greater Flask of the Currents Icon Greater Flask of the Currents should be used in all situations, since Agility increases the amount of damage you Stagger. The flasks obtained from cauldrons will give you Agility also.

Potion of Unbridled Fury Icon Potion of Unbridled Fury should be used in most situations, with Superior Battle Potion of Agility Icon Superior Battle Potion of Agility being ahead on multiple targets. Against Physical damage, Superior Steelskin Potion Icon Superior Steelskin Potion is alright, but provides no damage increase.

In Battle for Azeroth, you will use Abyssal Healing Potion Icon Abyssal Healing Potion as your healing potion. Healing potions no longer share a cooldown with Healthstone Icon Healthstones, so you can use both if you have access to a Warlock.


Best Food for Brewmaster

If you can, you should eat Famine Evaluator And Snack Table Icon Famine Evaluator And Snack Table or Sanguinated Feast Icon Sanguinated Feast for the buff to your Agility. The best solo food you can use is the Boralus Blood Sausage Icon Boralus Blood Sausage, giving 15 less Agility than a feast. If you wish to increase Stamina instead (not recommended for most cases), you can eat Fragrant Kakavia Icon Fragrant Kakavia.


Augment Runes for Brewmaster

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.

Starting in patch 8.3 you can also use the re-usable Lightning-Forged Augment Rune Icon Lightning-Forged Augment Rune to increase your primary stat by an equal amount.
