1. Gems

You should use Saber's Eye of Strength Icon Saber's Eye of Strength in one socket, and Masterful Argulite Icon Masterful Argulite (or the cheaper Masterful Shadowruby Icon Masterful Shadowruby) in all other sockets.

2. Enchants

Slot Enchantment
Neck
Back
Rings
Weapon Rune of the Fallen Crusader Icon Rune of the Fallen Crusader

3. Consumables

Flask of the Countless Armies Icon Flask of the Countless Armies should be used for raids along with Potion of Prolonged Power Icon Potion of Prolonged Power as your potion of choice. You should eat Lavish Suramar Feast Icon Lavish Suramar Feast for the buff to your Strength (or the cheaper Hearty Feast Icon Hearty Feast if you cannot afford the +500 food). Ancient Healing Potion Icon Ancient Healing Potion can be used in place of Healthstones.

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 50,000 Gold and requires exalted reputation with the Army of the Light faction.
