Macro Formatting Guidelines

Note: With the release of 6.0.2, many spells have been renamed, and much of the scripted command functionality has been modified. In an effort to keep Wowpedia posts relevant, please re-validate and re-post macros that work in the current version.

Re-Creating Old Macros

When re-creating a macro in Useful macros please

  • follow the example format posted below (to get the frame around your macro, add a space before you start it)
  • describe what it does
  • note the version of WoW in which you tested it
  • remove it from the Old Macros page

Example Macro

/y Hooray, I made a macro!
  • Use: This yells, "Hooray, I made a macro!"
  • Works in 6.x

General Macros

Conjuring

Eating and drinking

There are some general macros for food an water management on the Useful macros.

Polymorph Focus Macro

A modified version of the old Polymorph Mouseover/Focus macro.

This polymorph macro will do the following:

  1. Set your focus on your mouseover target if you don't have a focus already OR if your current focus is friendly
  2. Set your focus on what you have targeted if you don't have a mouseover target and if you don't have a focus already OR if your current focus is friendly
  3. Polymorph the Focus target.
/clearfocus [@focus,noharm][@focus,dead]
/focus [@mouseover,harm,nodead][@focus,noharm][@focus,dead]
/cast [@focus,harm] Polymorph

You can also use this macro without the mouseover feature; just delete the [@mouseover,harm] bracket from the macro and you're set.

This macro will also work for other crowd control spells like Fear, Hex, etc.

  • Tested in 5.3.0 (should still work in 6.0.2)

Buffing

Cast and Remove Ice Block

#showtooltip Ice block
/stopcasting
/cast Ice block
/cancelaura Ice block
  • Validated: 6.0.2
  • Use: Press to cast [Ice Block], and press again to remove it.

Start buffs, conjure rations, and eat/drink in one click

#showtooltip Conjured Mana Fritter
/castsequence [btn:1] reset=10 Arcane Brilliance,Conjure Refreshment
/use [btn:2]Conjured Mana Fritter

This macro is good for start-up as it allows initial buffs, and the conjuring of refreshment; or it will consume refreshment with a single click. If you left-click on it, or click on it with a keyboard hotkey, it goes through a sequence which will give the intellect buff, followed by conjure refreshment. By putting the buffs first, when they run out and you are not out of food, you can simply left click on it twice to renew your buffs.

If you right click on it, you will sit, eat, and drink, in one click. By setting #showtooltip to the food - change it to which ever food you conjure - you will see a big red ? when you first log on, to remind you that you need to run it, and, once you have run it, you will see the number of foods you have in stock.

Arcane Macros

Standard Rotation

This will cast Arcane Blast 4 times to build up Arcane Charges, then cast Arcane Barrage. When Arcane Missiles procs hold shift to cast Arcane Missiles after the fourth Arcane Blast.

#show Arcane Blast
/cast [mod:shift, nochanneling] Arcane Missiles;
/castsequence [nochanneling] reset=10/nocombat Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Blast, Arcane Barrage

High Damage Blizzard

#show Blizzard
/cast Icy Veins
/cast Blizzard

Decurse

This is particularly good if you keybind your mousewheel to it.

#show Remove Curse
/cast [target=mouseover,noflying,nomounted,nodead,help] Remove Curse; [target=mouseover,noflying,nomounted,nodead,harm] Counterspell; [flying,combat] Slow Fall

Fire Macros

Living Bomb, Fireball

/castsequence reset=12/target/combat Living Bomb, Fireball, Fireball, Fireball, Fireball

Cast Living Bomb on Mouseover Target

#showtooltip Living Bomb
/cast [@mouseover,harm,nodead][] Living Bomb
  • Use: If there's a mouseover target that isn't friendly or dead, this macro will pop a Living Bomb on it. If not, it works like normal Living Bomb. Useful for spamming Living Bomb onto adds and around groups!
  • Works in 6.0.2

Frost Macros

Frostbolt and Pet Attack

You can replace frostbolt with any other spell you use alot and it makes the water elemental attack faster.

#showtooltip Frostbolt
/cast Frostbolt
/petattack

AoE Grinding

May not the be choice for higher levels, but for AoE leveling grinding as frost its good.

#showtooltip
/castsequence reset=10 Frost Nova, Ice Barrier, Icy Veins, Blizzard, Blink, Cone of Cold
