About Our Author

This guide has been written by Azortharion, the main theorycrafter of the spec. He is also an accomplished player who raids in Vanguard. You can also watch his stream on Twitch.

1. Gems

You should use Saber's Eye of Agility Icon Saber's Eye of Agility in one socket, and Masterful Shadowruby Icon Masterful Shadowruby in all other sockets.

2. Enchants

Slot Enchantment

3. Consumables

Flask of the Seventh Demon Icon Flask of the Seventh Demon should be used for raids along with Potion of Deadly Grace Icon Potion of Deadly Grace as your potion of choice. You should eat from the Lavish Suramar Feast Icon Lavish Suramar Feast if available, otherwise you should eat Nightborne Delicacy Platter Icon Nightborne Delicacy Platter for the Mastery buff (or Barracuda Mrglgagh Icon Barracuda Mrglgagh, if you cannot afford the +375 food). Ancient Healing Potion Icon Ancient Healing Potion should also be used when at low health.

Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power is almost as good as Deadly Grace, and even better for sustained multi-target periods, or when you need extra DPS for an extended period of time. If DPS is not a primary concern in the encounter, and especially if add DPS is important, use this potion.

If you can afford it, you should also use the Legion augment rune: Defiled Augment Rune Icon Defiled Augment Rune. Note that it now works in Mythic+ dungeons (it did not used to).
