Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Battle Potion of Intellect should be used as your potion in all situations.

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

Healthstone Icon Healthstone heals for 25% of the user's maximum health. This means that any player with more than 28604 health should always use Healthstones over Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal Healing Potions whenever available.

3.2. Best Food for Elemental

You should eat from the Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast or Sanguinated Feast Icon Sanguinated Feast (or the cheaper Galley Banquet Icon Galley Banquet) when possible, and otherwise Boralus Blood Sausage Icon Boralus Blood Sausage is the best individual food. Those aside, you can eat Critical Strike food (Honey-Glazed Haunches Icon Honey-Glazed Haunches or the cheaper Kul Tiramisu Icon Kul Tiramisu) or Haste food (Swamp Fish 'n Chips Icon Swamp Fish 'n Chips or the cheaper Ravenberry Tarts Icon Ravenberry Tarts), depending on what you lack.

3.3. Augment Runes for Elemental

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.
