Since the recommendations on this page (gems, enchants, food, and flasks) are based on your stat priority, we recommend also checking out our dedicated stats page for Demonology Warlock.

Best Enchants for Demonology Warlock
Consumables for Demonology Warlock
Best Flasks and Potions for Demonology
With a recent fix, pets and guardians are now affected by Potion of Focused Resolve, making it the best option in single target over Potion of Unbridled Fury. After that, start using Superior Battle Potion of Intellect or Potion of Empowered Proximity if you can afford being in melee range.
Greater Flask of Endless Fathoms should be used as your flask of choice.
Best Food for Demonology
Augment Runes for Demonology
If you can afford it, you should use 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 to increase your primary stat by an equal amount.
Explosive Potential Enchants, Gems and Consumables
When using Explosive Potential, Critical Strike becomes more desirable than Haste, therefore consider using the following Critical Strike gems, enchants, and consumables instead of Haste ones:
- Deadly Lava Lazuli or Deadly Amberblaze instead of Quick Sand Spinel or Quick Owlseye;
- Enchant Ring - Accord of Critical Strike or Enchant Ring - Seal of Critical Strike instead of Enchant Ring - Accord of Haste or Enchant Ring - Seal of Haste;
- Mech-Dowel's "Big Mech" (or the food for your best-simming stat) instead of Baked Port Tato.
