About Our Author and Reviewers

This guide has been written by Furty, who has an illustrious history in the World of Warcraft raiding scene and race for World First. He has been a member of guilds such as Serenity, Midwinter, and many more, and is currently raiding in Future. He plays most classes at the highest level. You can follow him on Twitter and watch him play on Twitch.

This guide has been written in collaboration with the team at Storm Earth and Lava, a group of Elemental theorycrafters that includes top players and prominent theorycrafters such as Stormy, Sadozai from Wizards IRL, and Gistwiki from Indestructible.

1. Haste vs Critical Strike

In the sections below, we advise the use of Haste gems, enchants, and food. This is because it can be considered as your default secondary stat (being as useful in Mythic+ and raiding). That said, if you are using the Icefury Build you are free to use Critical Strike enhancements.

2. Gems

You should use Quick Lightsphene Icon Quick Lightsphene in all sockets. If you cannot afford to use the epic gems, you should instead use a Saber's Eye of Intellect Icon Saber's Eye of Intellect in one socket and Quick Dawnlight Icon Quick Dawnlight in all other sockets.

3. Enchants

Slot Enchantment
Neck
Back
Rings

4. Consumables

Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power should be used as your potion in all situations.

Flask of the Whispered Pact Icon Flask of the Whispered Pact should be used as your flask of choice.

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). Exceptionally geared players may experience marginally better results when using Azshari Salad Icon Azshari Salad for the +375 Haste buff due to the nature of secondary stat scaling.

Since Patch 7.3, Healthstones now heal for 25% of the user's maximum health. This means that any player with more than 1.92 million health should always use Healthstones over Ancient Healing Potion Icon Ancient Healing Potions whenever available.

If you can afford it, you should also use augment runes (which work in both raids and Mythic+ dungeons). Defiled Augment Rune Icon Defiled Augment Rune is the cheap rune with a one-time use. Lightforged Augment Rune Icon Lightforged Augment Rune costs 50,000 Gold and requires exalted reputation with the Army of the Light faction.
