3.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Elemental
Battle Potion of Intellect should be used as your potion in all situations.
Flask of Endless Fathoms should be used as your flask of choice.
3.2. Best Food for Elemental
You should eat from the Bountiful Captain's Feast or Sanguinated Feast (or the cheaper Galley Banquet) when possible, and otherwise Boralus Blood Sausage is the best individual food. Those aside, you can eat Critical Strike food ( Honey-Glazed Haunches or the cheaper Kul Tiramisu) or Haste food ( Swamp Fish 'n Chips or the cheaper Ravenberry Tarts), depending on what you lack.
3.3. 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.
