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

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

Vanish Macros

Ultimate Vanish

Gives the best possible chance to escape, useful for dungeons where enemies have abilities that hit regardless of stealth

#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.

Poison Macros

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.

/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:

/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.

/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
