3. Consumables for Guardian Druids

3.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Guardian

Flask of the Currents Icon Flask of the Currents should be used in most situations. If you need a bit of extra health, Flask of the Vast Horizon Icon Flask of the Vast Horizon should be used.

Battle Potion of Agility Icon Battle Potion of Agility should be used in most situations. If you need a bit of extra health, Battle Potion of Stamina Icon Battle Potion of Stamina can be used instead. For pure single target DPS, you can use Potion of Bursting Blood Icon Potion of Bursting Blood.

In Battle for Azeroth you will use Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal 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.

3.2. Best Food for Guardian

You should eat Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast or Sanguinated Feast Icon Sanguinated Feast for the buff to your Agility. If you want to buff your Stamina instead of your Agility, you can use Seasoned Steak and Potatoes Icon Seasoned Steak and Potatoes. You may also choose to use Honey Potpie Icon Honey Potpie in Mythic+ to assist in kiting enemies.

3.3. Augment Runes for Guardian

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.
