1. Gems for Shadow Priest

You should use Quick Lightsphene Icon Quick Lightsphene in all sockets, or the cheaper Quick Dawnlight Icon Quick Dawnlight.

2. Enchants for Shadow Priest

Slot Enchantment

3. Consumables for Shadow Priest

Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power is the best choice of potion for all situations. Lower item level players (<905) may find that the Potion of Deadly Grace Icon Potion of Deadly Grace is a better option for single target.

Flask of the Whispered Pact Icon Flask of the Whispered Pact is our flask of choice.

You should eat Azshari Salad Icon Azshari Salad for the +375 Haste buff.

Since Patch 7.3, Healthstones now heal for 25% of the user's maximum health. This means that any player with more than 1.92 million health should always use Healthstones over Ancient Healing Potion Icon Ancient Healing Potions whenever available.

If you can afford it, you should also use augment runes (which work in both raids and Mythic+ dungeons). Defiled Augment Rune Icon Defiled Augment Rune is the cheap rune with a one-time use. Lightforged Augment Rune Icon Lightforged Augment Rune costs 40,000 Gold and requires exalted reputation with the Army of the Light faction.
