Elemental Shaman DPS Gems, Enchants, and Consumables — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.3
Best Gems for Elemental Shaman
If Versatility's damage reduction is irrelevant to you, you should use Deadly Lava Lazuli (or the cheaper Deadly Amberblaze) as critical strike is more powerful in multi-target. If you want to optimize the "funneling" strategy, focus on haste with Quick Sand Spinel (or the cheaper Quick Owlseye).
Best Enchants for Elemental Shaman
Consumables for Elemental Shaman
Best Flasks and Potions for Elemental Shaman
Potion of Unbridled Fury is the best potion for pure single-target. Superior Battle Potion of Intellect is not far behind in single-target and should be used as your potion in all multi-target situations.
Greater Flask of Endless Fathoms should be used as your flask of choice.
Best Food for Elemental
Augment Runes for Elemental
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.
