Enchants, Gems and Consumables for Subtlety Rogue

This page covers what are the best gems, enchants, food and flask to use as Subtlety Rogue. For more detailed explanations on how stats interact with each other in different scenarios, please visit our dedicated Stats page.

You should have Sensei's Alexstraszite Icon Sensei's Alexstraszite in all of your sockets and one Inscribed Illimited Diamond Icon Inscribed Illimited Diamond.

Note that all four stats are close to each other for Subtlety, so if you have very little of certain stat, you might want to gem for that instead.


Best Primordial Stone Gems for Subtlety Rogue

The newly introduced Primordial Stone Gems, when fully upgraded, are roughly 0.6% better for single-target and significantly worse for AoE situations than any Mythic Item Level ring.

With the current tuning on release of Patch 10.0.7, you will want to aim to get Onyx Annulet Icon Onyx Annulet ring and the Primordial Gems for single-target scenarios, and below, we will have listed the best Primordial Gem setup:

Note that if you do not already have high Item Level rings, the Onyx Annulet will likely be a significant upgrade for you. Still, it is highly recommended to sim yourself to figure out the best choices and combinations for your specific gear and the specific gems you already own.

For more information regarding the Onyx Annulet, the Primordial Gemstones, and how to obtain them, check out our dedicated guide below.

Consumables for Subtlety Rogues


Best Phials and Potions for Subtlety

Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power Icon Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power (or the easier to obtain version Elemental Potion of Power Icon Elemental Potion of Power) is the potion for all situations.

Phial of Tepid Versatility Icon Phial of Tepid Versatility is the recommended Phial for Subtlety Rogues as it performs almost exactly same as other Phials but has no downsides and Versatility also has defensive value.

Refreshing Healing Potion Icon Refreshing Healing Potion is our healing potion in Dragonflight. Using it will put it on a 5-minute cooldown.

In addition, a Warlock's Healthstone Icon Healthstones does not share a cooldown with other healing consumables. Remember to use it as well if you are holding one!


Best Food for Subtlety

Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak Icon Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak/Hoard of Draconic Delicacies Icon Hoard of Draconic Delicacies is your food of choice for some additional Agility. Cheaper options are Filet of Fangs Icon Filet of Fangs and Revenge, Served Cold Icon Revenge, Served Cold.


Other Consumables

Weapon Runes work the same way as Sharpening Stones and Weapon Oils from previous expansions. In Dragonflight, you will want to apply a Buzzing Rune Icon Buzzing Rune to both of your weapons.

Note that in Dragonflight you can freely change your talents at any time outside of combat or a mythic+ dungeon. Because of this, there are no tome consumables to worry about!
