Best Gems for Demonology Warlock

You should use gems matching your best simming stat. If Intellect is simming highest, you should socket your gear with one Leviathan's Eye of Intellect Icon Leviathan's Eye of Intellect.

You should use Leviathan's Eye of Intellect Icon Leviathan's Eye of Intellect in one socket, and Quick Sand Spinel Icon Quick Sand Spinel (or the cheaper Quick Owlseye Icon Quick Owlseye) in all other sockets.

Best Flasks and Potions for Demonology

Potion of Unbridled Fury Icon Potion of Unbridled Fury is the best choice for situations with up to 3 targets. After that, start using Superior Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Superior Battle Potion of Intellect or Potion of Empowered Proximity Icon Potion of Empowered Proximity.

Greater Flask of Endless Fathoms Icon Greater Flask of Endless Fathoms should be used as your flask of choice.

Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal Healing Potion should be used alongside Healthstone Icon Healthstones for emergency healing.


Best Food for Demonology

Famine Evaluator And Snack Table Icon Famine Evaluator And Snack Table is our go-to food. If your raid is not using feasts, you should use Baked Port Tato Icon Baked Port Tato (or your best-simming stat) instead.


Augment Runes for Demonology

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.
