On this page, we list the best gems, enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Shadow Priest in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.5. We also give budget alternatives.
1. Best Gems for Shadow Priest
2. Best Enchants for Shadow Priest
3. Consumables for Shadow Priest
3.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Shadow
Potion of Rising Death is the theoretical best choice of potion in single-target situations, provided you are at least 20 yards or more away from your target. Otherwise, you want to be using Battle Potion of Intellect for single-target. For multi-target you always want to be using Battle Potion of Intellect.
Flask of Endless Fathoms is our flask of choice.
3.2. Best Food for Shadow
You should eat from the Bountiful Captain's Feast (or the cheaper Galley Banquet) when possible, and otherwise Critical Strike food ( Honey-Glazed Haunches or the cheaper Kul Tiramisu) or Haste food ( Swamp Fish 'n Chips or the cheaper Ravenberry Tarts).
3.3. Augment Runes for Shadow
If you can afford it, you should use 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.
