1. Gems

You should use Saber's Eye of Intellect Icon Saber's Eye of Intellect in one socket, and Quick Dawnlight Icon Quick Dawnlight in all other sockets.

2. Enchants

Slot Enchantment
Neck
Back
Rings

3. Consumables

Flask of the Whispered Pact Icon Flask of the Whispered Pact should be used as your flask. You should eat Lavish Suramar Feast Icon Lavish Suramar Feast for the +500 Intellect buff (or the cheaper Hearty Feast Icon Hearty Feast if you cannot afford the +500 food). Alternatively, you can eat Azshari Salad Icon Azshari Salad for the Haste buff (or Suramar Surf and Turf Icon Suramar Surf and Turf, if you cannot afford the +375 food). Ancient Healing Potion Icon Ancient Healing Potion should be used in place of Healthstones.

Potion of Deadly Grace Icon Potion of Deadly Grace is the best potion for dealing single target damage. Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power, however, is a superior option when cleave or AoE is the priority; essentially, any situation where you will use Wreak Havoc Icon Wreak Havoc. Prolonged Power is also the best choice for Mythic+ dungeon farming.

If you can afford it, you should also use the Legion augment rune: Defiled Augment Rune Icon Defiled Augment Rune. Note that it now works in Mythic+ dungeons (it did not used to).
