1. Gems for Guardian Druids

You should use Kraken's Eye of Agility Icon Kraken's Eye of Agility in one socket, and use Masterful Tidal Amethyst Icon Masterful Tidal Amethyst (or the cheaper Masterful Kubiline Icon Masterful Kubiline) or Versatile Royal Quartz Icon Versatile Royal Quartz (or the cheaper Versatile Kyanite Icon Versatile Kyanite) in all the other sockets.

3. Consumables for Guardian Druids

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.

You should eat Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast for the buff to your Agility. If you want to buff your Agility instead of your Stamina, you should switch to Feral before eating (and then back to Guardian afterwards).

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.

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.
