On this page, we list the best gems, enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Subtlety Rogue in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.5. We also give budget alternatives.

1. Best Gems for Subtlety Rogue

You should use Kraken's Eye of Agility Icon Kraken's Eye of Agility in one socket, and Deadly Amberblaze Icon Deadly Amberblaze (or the cheaper Deadly Solstone Icon Deadly Solstone) in all other sockets.

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.

2. Best Enchants for Subtlety Rogue

Slot Enchantment

3. Consumables for Subtlety Rogue

3.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Subtlety

Battle Potion of Agility Icon Battle Potion of Agility is the best potion in all situations.

Flask of the Currents Icon Flask of the Currents is our flask of choice.

Since Patch 8.0.1, Healthstones and Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal Healing Potion no longer share a cooldown with each other, which means that you can use both of them. It is also important to note that the Healing Potion is significantly stronger than Healthstones.

3.2. Best Food for Subtlety

You should eat from the Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast (or the cheaper Galley Banquet Icon Galley Banquet) when possible, and otherwise Critical Strike food (Honey-Glazed Haunches Icon Honey-Glazed Haunches or the cheaper Kul Tiramisu Icon Kul Tiramisu).

Note that the two strongest ones are generally meant for raiding, which means that they are a lot more expensive than the other two.

3.3. Augment Runes for Subtlety

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.
