Best Flasks and Potions for Guardian

Use Spectral Flask of Power Icon Spectral Flask of Power for your flask.

Potion of Spectral Agility Icon Potion of Spectral Agility will generally be the highest DPS potion. For pure single-target DPS, you may opt to use Potion of Phantom Fire Icon Potion of Phantom Fire. If you are fighting many monsters at the same time you may opt to use Potion of Empowered Exorcisms Icon Potion of Empowered Exorcisms.

In Mythic+, you can use Potion of Spectral Agility Icon Potion of Spectral Agility as your potion for the defensive benefit from the agility gained, which will largely increase your armor from Ironfur Icon Ironfur.

In Shadowlands, you will use Spiritual Healing Potion Icon Spiritual Healing Potion as your healing potion. Healing potions no longer share a cooldown with Healthstone Icon Healthstones, so you can use both if you have access to a Warlock.
