Macro Formatting Guidelines
Note: With the release of 4.0.1, 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
/y Hooray, I made a macro!
- Use: This yells, "Hooray, I made a macro!"
- Works in 5.x
Stealth Eat Macros
Your basic Macro to eat while stealthed.
#showtooltip *food here* /cast *food here* /cast Stealth
and if you're undead
#showtooltip Cannibalize /cast Cannibalize /cast Stealth
Gives the best possible chance to escape, useful for dungeons where enemies have abilities that hit regardless of stealth
#showtooltip #show Vanish /cast Sprint /cast Smoke Bomb /cast Vanish /cast Cloak of Shadows
Cloak of Shadows Vanish
This is a macro that will cast Cloak of Shadows then immediately casts Vanish. Casting CoS first will remove many of the DoTs that would immediately cancel your Stealth if you had only used Vanish.
#showicon Vanish /cast Cloak of Shadows /cast Vanish
Note: CoS won't remove phyisical DoTs such as Rend or Gouge, so it's not foolproof or as useful when up against Warriors or other Rogues, but in my experience it can be a life saver in desperate times.
One Button Poisons
This will apply Instant Poison to your main hand weapon with a left mouse click, and Deadly Poison to your off hand with a right click.
#showtooltip /use [btn:1] Instant Poison; [btn:2] Deadly Poison /use [btn:1] 16; [btn:2] 17
EDIT: To add to the utility and convienence of this macro, you can add "/click StaticPopup1Button1 " to the END of the macro so it will automatically Accept the "Do you want to replace X poison with x poison" pop-up prompt.
The end result will look like:
#showtooltip /use [btn:1] Instant Poison; [btn:2] Deadly Poison /use [btn:1] 16; [btn:2] 17 /click StaticPopup1Button1
One Button Poisons - Advanced
Applies selected poison to MH on left click, OH on right click, or thrown on Mouse4 (if available.) Hold control AND alt for mind-numbing, shift for Instant, control for Crippling, alt for Wound, or just click for Deadly.
#showtooltip /use [mod:ctrl, mod:alt] Mind-Numbing Poison;[mod:shift] Instant Poison; [mod:ctrl] Crippling Poison; [mod:alt] Wound Poison; Deadly Poison /use [button:1] 16; [button:2] 17; [button:4] 18 /click StaticPopup1Button1
- Can use "[button:3] 18" for middle mouse button or "[button:4] 18" for Mouse4 or it can be removed and still left click for MH or right click for OH
