General Information

On this page, we list the best gems, enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Brewmaster Monk, based on your stat priority. We also give budget alternatives. This page is updated for World of Warcraft — Dragonflight 10.0.7.


Best Gems, Enchantments, and Consumables for Brewmaster Monks

This section will be going over a variety of extra buffs available for use by your character. To have a better understanding of why certain stats are being prioritized on a Brewmaster Monk, please pay a visit to the page dedicated to them.

You should ideally make use of Radiant Alexstraszite Icon Radiant Alexstraszite or Radiant Malygite Icon Radiant Malygite in all of your sockets for a balance between offense and defense, along with one Inscribed Illimited Diamond Icon Inscribed Illimited Diamond/Resplendent Illimited Diamond Icon Resplendent Illimited Diamond. Jagged Nozdorite Icon Jagged Nozdorite or Steady Nozdorite Icon Steady Nozdorite can also be acceptable substitutes depending on cost.


Best Primordial Gemstones for Brewmaster Monks

Primordial Gemstones are a special type of gem introduced in Patch 10.0.7 for the unique Primordial Sockets that can only be found on the Onyx Annulet Icon Onyx Annulet ring. These stones all offer unique effects to bolster your strength, though only until the launch of Patch 10.1, when more powerful gear will eventually be available.

For more information regarding the Onyx Annulet, Primordial Gemstones, and how to obtain them, check out our dedicated guide below.

Remember that the effects of Primordial Stones include options for more damage, healing, defense, and even some additional utility, such as increased movement speed. Because of this, there is a lot of flexibility in choosing which 3 stones you wish to socket into your Onyx Annulet Icon Onyx Annulet. With that being said, listed below are some of the most desirable stones along with their general use-case:

In addition to the stones above, you may wish to consider the Obscure Pastel Stone Icon Obscure Pastel Stone, which triggers more frequently than any other but will use any of the remaining 23 stone effects at random. As a tank, however, you will still very likely benefit from any healing or absorb-based effects, making it a strong all-around option!


Best Enchants for Brewmaster Monks

Note that due to varying qualities and prices existing for most enchants that will impact their strength, it may be worthwhile to instead use an appropriate "Writ" enchant rather than a "Devotion", so long as it provides the same baseline effect.

Slot Enchantment
Weapon (2h and dual-wield main-hand)
Weapon (dual-wield off-hand)

As a Brewmaster Monk, stats are so close together for defensive value that you are largely free to use other stat enchants on rings if you prefer them. Meanwhile, for weapon enchants, Enchant Weapon - Frozen Devotion Icon Enchant Weapon - Frozen Devotion is the recommended choice for your main-hand and Enchant Weapon - Sophic Devotion Icon Enchant Weapon - Sophic Devotion is recommended in your off-hand if dual-wielding. If you wish to instead optimize your enchantments for even more damage, you should replace Sophic Devotion with a second Frozen Devotion, make use of Enchant Weapon - Burning Writ Icon Enchant Weapon - Burning Writ, or consider simulating your character. For more information, look into the Simulations section of this guide dedicated to explaining how to do so below.


Consumables for Brewmaster Monks


Best Phials and Potions for Brewmaster

Phial of Glacial Fury Icon Phial of Glacial Fury should be used in most situations. Although it only provides damage, its effects are noticeably more potent than other alternative phials. You may also wish to use Phial of Tepid Versatility Icon Phial of Tepid Versatility as a more generic choice that also provides a slight defensive benefit. In addition, there are no cauldrons providing phials, so you must supply your own.

Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power Icon Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power (or its lesser Elemental Potion of Power Icon Elemental Potion of Power variant) is your recommended potion both before combat as a "pre-pot" and during most fights. These potions can also be obtained from a Potion Cauldron of Ultimate Power Icon Potion Cauldron of Ultimate Power/Potion Cauldron of Power Icon Potion Cauldron of Power, so long as you have five Primal Chaos Icon Primal Chaos to convert into potions. If you are facing a particularly large number of enemies, you may also wish to have some Potion of Shocking Disclosure Icon Potion of Shocking Disclosure on hand to use.

Refreshing Healing Potion Icon Refreshing Healing Potion acts as your healing potion. Each use will incur a 5-minute cooldown, but multiple can be consumed in an extended boss fight.

In addition, a Warlock's Healthstone Icon Healthstone does not share a cooldown with other healing consumables. Remember to use it as well if you are holding one!

Finally, Alchemy offers a number of utility potions, including those that can be used while you are dead! While not every potion will be listed, you should at least keep a small number of Residual Neural Channeling Agent Icon Residual Neural Channeling Agent on you to use while you have an available potion and are waiting for a battle resurrection.


Best Food for Brewmaster

If available, Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak Icon Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak/Hoard of Draconic Delicacies Icon Hoard of Draconic Delicacies is your food of choice for some additional Agility in a dungeon or raid group. Otherwise, Fated Fortune Cookie Icon Fated Fortune Cookies provide the same amount of Agility while being a personal consumable, Filet of Fangs Icon Filet of Fangs can be used for an extra bit of Critical Strike, or Revenge, Served Cold Icon Revenge, Served Cold can be consumed to additionally gain some Versatility.


Additional, Optional Consumables

While they are not as necessary for success in areas of content as phials, potions, and food are, there are some additional consumables available for a small amount of extra temporary power for your character.

Weapon Runes function similar to Weapon Oils of previous expansions, applying a temporary buff to your weapon that is not removed on death. In Dragonflight, you will want to apply a Buzzing Rune Icon Buzzing Rune to your weapons for some additional Critical Strike. Be aware that you cannot apply a Weapon Rune and a Weapon stone to an item at the same time.

Weapon Stones also make a return in Dragonflight, appearing as either Primal Whetstone Icon Primal Whetstone or Primal Weightstone Icon Primal Weightstone, depending on if your weapon is bladed or not. In general, you should make use of Buzzing Rune Icon Buzzing Runes mentioned above rather than a Weapon Stone.

While expensive, Draconic Augment Rune Icon Draconic Augment Runes can be used for a small amount of extra Agility. Consider keeping a few on hand for times when you need to eke out every bit of possible damage.

If you find yourself in need of a Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust-effect, drums are a useful tool to provide a similar, but weaker, form of the buff. At Level 70, the only drums that can be used are Feral Hide Drums Icon Feral Hide Drums.

Note that in Dragonflight you can freely change your talents at any time outside of combat or a mythic+ dungeon. Because of this, there are no tome consumables to worry about!
