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

Show/hide cloak

/run ShowCloak(not ShowingCloak())
  • Use: Shows or hides your cloak.
  • Works in 4.x

Show/hide helm

/run ShowHelm(not ShowingHelm())
  • Use: Shows or hides your helm.
  • Works in 4.x

Switch language

/run c,d,i,p=DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME,GetDefaultLanguage,GetLanguageByIndex,player;l=(d(p)==i(1) and 2 or 1);if c.editBox.language~=d(p)then c.editBox.language=d(p)else c.editBox.language=i(l)end;c:AddMessage("Language set to : "..c.editBox.language);
  • Credit: Yza @ EU-Ysondre
  • Use: Intelligent switch between default and racial language
  • Warning: Generates a LUA error when used with a Human/Orc (no racial language)
  • Works in 4.x

Updated Switch language

/run local s,g,f=select,GetLanguageByIndex,DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME.editBox;local c,d,dd,r,rr=f.languageID,s(2,g(2)),g(2),s(2,g(1)),g(1);if d then f.languageID=(c==d and r or d);print("Spoken Language is :  \124cff88ff44"..(c==d and rr or dd));end;
  • Credit: Telarrus @ US-MoonGuard. Based on original code by Yza @ EU-Ysondre.
  • Use: Intelligent swicth between default and racial language for races that have one. Does nothing for races with only one language.
  • Works in 6.0.3

Swapping Talents, Equipment and Stances

Swap Current Dual-Spec Talent

/run if( GetActiveTalentGroup() == 1 ) then DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("Spec1...");SetActiveTalentGroup(2) else DEFAULT_CHAT_FRAME:AddMessage("Spec2...");SetActiveTalentGroup(1) end
/in 6 /equipset [spec:2]Eq1;Eq2
  • Credit: Earthsoul of Thunderhorn, many thanks to Desiday of Antonidas for inspiration
  • Use: "Quickly" swaps your Primary/Secondary talent specs.
  • Also changes your equipped item set, only need to change the name of Eq1 and Eq2
  • Works in 3.1.1

Here is one that switches the set before the spec (may avoid some errors):

/equipset [spec:1] PSS ; SSS
/usetalents [spec:1] 2; [spec:2] 1

Just have to replace PSS with the name of your primary spec set, and SSS with the name of your secondary spec set.

Swap Talents, Equipment, and Stance

This macro will switch your talent spec and put you into the respective gear and stance.

/equipset [spec:1] <Secondary Set Name>; <Primary Set Name> 
/cast [spec:1] <Secondary Stance>; <Primary Stance> 
/usetalents [spec:1] 2; 1

Here is an alternate version for fury warriors that cannot use the above macro due to Titan's Grip. Left click swaps the talent spec, right click swaps gear and stance.

#show [spec:1] <Secondary Stance>; [spec:2] <Primary Stance> 
/usetalents [button:1,spec:1] 2; [button:1,spec:2] 1 
/equipset [button:2,spec:1] <Primary Set Name>; [button:2,spec:2] <Secondary Set Name> 
/cast [spec:1] <Primary Stance>; [spec:2] <Secondary Stance>


A one button spec, stance and equipment interchanger, caters for Furry Warriors Titan's Grip

/cast [stance:3] Defensive Stance; [Stance:1] Berserker Stance
/usetalents [spec:1] 2; [spec:2] 1
/in 5.30 /equipset [spec:1] Tank ; DPS

Offhand weapon switching

You might find yourself in a situation where you have two offhand weapons with the same name but different poisons on them and you want to switch between them quickly. Or perhaps you just want to alternate between two offhand weapons with just one hotkey.

#showtooltip [mod] 0 16; 17
/equipslot 17 0 16
  • Keep your alternate dagger in the sixteenth slot (lower right corner) of your main (rightmost) backpack.
  • The number 17 refers to your offhand weapon slot.
  • #showtooltip makes the macro's icon and tooltip display the icon of the equipped weapon, or hold down a modifier key (say Alt) and it will display the icon of the weapon that's ready to be switched in.
  • Works in 3.2.2

Suppressing Sound and Error Messages

Sound and Message Error Cleaner

When you spam a spell you get sounds and error messages that can be annoying. Using the macro below you will avoid all that. This example is a macro which you can use to spam Arcane Missiles. It will not cut an already channeling Arcane Missile cast, nor will it make the error sound or spam your screen with error messages.

/console Sound_EnableSFX 0
/run UIErrorsFrame:UnregisterEvent("UI_ERROR_MESSAGE")
/cast [nochanneling:Arcane Missiles] Arcane Missiles
/run UIErrorsFrame:RegisterEvent("UI_ERROR_MESSAGE") 
/console Sound_EnableSFX 1
  • Credit: Vermin of Talnivarr.
  • Use: Change the third line to the spell you want to spam.
  • Works in 3.3 but at least one or two errors will not be cleaned with this macro

No Error Text or Sound (Improved)

For people that macro cd's into normal spells, such as petattacks, trinkets, everlasting potions, etc. it gets annoying being spammed with "This ability is not ready" and that fun error sound. I've seen a common solution online (similar to the macro above) that fixes this problem with a single issue that's almost as bad as the problem it's fixing.

For people who play without sound to begin with, these macro will -enable your sound- every time you use them. So here is my solution:

/run sfx=GetCVar("Sound_EnableSFX");
/console Sound_EnableSFX 0
/cast ExampleTrinket1
/cast ExampleSpell2
/run UIErrorsFrame:Clear() 
/run SetCVar("Sound_EnableSFX",sfx);

The overall effect is the same, but my macro checks to see what you sound currently is set to (enabled or disabled), disables it for the error, and then sets it back where you had it. (ex: if your sound was already off, it will prevent the text error without turning your sound on at the end)

  • Credit: Xaeros of Shadowmoon
  • Use: Replace "ExampleTrinket1" and "ExampleSpell2" with your cd(s) and abilities, then drag to your bar like a normal macro.
  • Works in 3.3.3a

No Error Text or Sound (Improved Again)

This is just like the one above but with an added tooltip that matches the original skill, and doesn't disable sound for the skill's error messages. Sound and error messages for the trinket use are still suppressed though. If you set the name of the macro to a blank space, you can't even tell it's a macro. This one is designed more for trinket use than anything else, but it's here for when you only want to silence one of the two skills this macro uses.

#showtooltip ExampleSpell1
/run sfx=GetCVar("Sound_EnableSFX");
/console Sound_EnableSFX 0
/use ExampleTrinket2
/run UIErrorsFrame:Clear() 
/run SetCVar("Sound_EnableSFX",sfx);
/cast ExampleSpell1

If you're running low on characters and you're using this for a trinket, you can replace the use command with "use 13" (for upper trinket) or "use 14" (for lower trinket).

  • Credit: Vandalite of Feathermoon, and Xaeros of Shadowmoon for the macro this was based on.
  • Use: Replace "ExampleTrinket2" and "ExampleSpell1" With your cooldowns and abilities, then drag to your bar like a normal macro.
  • Works in 3.3.2

Training and Levelling

/run LoadAddOn"Blizzard_TrainerUI" f=ClassTrainerTrainButton f.e = 0 if f:GetScript"OnUpdate" then f:SetScript("OnUpdate", nil)else f:SetScript("OnUpdate", function(f,e) f.e=f.e+e if f.e>.01 then f.e=0 f:Click() end end)end

  • Use: sells all grey quality items
  • Works in 4.0.3
  • May get you in trouble since the selling is so fast that sometimes the server thinks it's spam.

Sell all grey items

/run local p,N,c,n=0 for b=0,4 do for s=1,GetContainerNumSlots(b) do n=GetContainerItemLink(b,s) if n and string.find(n,"9d9d9d") then N={GetItemInfo(n)} c=GetItemCount(n) p=p+(N[11]*c)UseContainerItem(b,s) print(n) end end end print(GetCoinText(p))

This macro sends a link with your Profession recipes to a Channel.

Replace #prof# with your profession. If your Profession is Engineering, then write:

Link two professions

One button to link both of your professions to trade chat and guild chat. Just replace "Inscription" and "Enchanting" with your two professions.

Just For Fun

Below are macros that serve no real purpose in-game beyond amusement.

Mounts

There's a whole page dedicated to Mount Macros.

Vanity Pets

Wheel O' Pets

/run q=C_PetJournal;v={q.GetNumPets()}r=random(v[2])p={q.GetPetInfoByIndex(r)}q.SummonPetByGUID(p[1])SendChatMessage("spins the Wheel O' Pets! The wheel stops on ["..r.."/"..v[2].."]: "..p[8].."!","emote");
  • Credit Xaeros of Shadowmoon
  • Use: Click to summon a random vanity pet. This macro has 49 free characters, so feel free to change your message. By default it says: "[player] spins the Wheel O' Pets! The wheel stops on [[random pet number]/[total pet number]]: [random pet's name]!
  • Works in 5.4.7

Random Pet with Announce

/run q=C_PetJournal;v={q.GetNumPets()}r=random(v[2])g={"their","his","her"}x=UnitSex("player")p={q.GetPetInfoByIndex(r)}q.SummonPetByGUID(p[1])SendChatMessage("gasps as "..p[8] .." hops out of "..g[x] .." pocket!","emote")
  • Credit Xaeros of Shadowmoon
  • Use: Click to summon a random vanity pet. This macro has 33 free characters, so feel free to change your message. By default it says: "[player] gasps as [pet] hops out of [his/her] pocket! (The [his/her] is based on the character's gender)
  • Works in 5.4.7

Out of Date Vanity Pet Macros

/run DismissCompanion("CRITTER"); CallCompanion("CRITTER", random(GetNumCompanions("CRITTER")));
  • Use: This will first attempt to dismiss any vanity pet you have summoned, and then attempt to randomly summon a new one.
  • Works in 3.1.2
/run local z;for i=GetNumCompanions("CRITTER"),1,-1 do local _,_,_,_,s = GetCompanionInfo("CRITTER",i); if s==1 then z=1;end end if (z==nil) then CallCompanion("CRITTER", random(GetNumCompanions("CRITTER"))) else DismissCompanion("CRITTER") end
  • Use: This is a more advanced version of the above macro, as it first attempts to determine whether or not you already have a pet summoned. If not, it summons one, else it dismisses it. (Note: There's no IsMounted() equivalent for pets, hence the for loop)
  • Works in 3.1.2

Summon Random Pet with salutation

/run local z;t="CRITTER"u=GetNumCompanions(t)v=random(u)for i=u,1,-1 do local _,_,_,_,s=GetCompanionInfo(t,i);if s==1 then z=1;end end if(z==nil)then c,n=GetCompanionInfo(t,v)SendChatMessage("Wow, it's a "..n)CallCompanion(t,v) else DismissCompanion(t)end
  • Credit: Strunge 12:55, December 23, 2009 (UTC) (Talk)
  • Use: This is a compact version of the above macro that also sends a chat message stating what pet, you have summoned. All 255 characters are used, so you can only change the text in the SendChatMessage-part to a statement with the same amount of characters.
  • Works in 3.3

Random Pet with Announce (Dismiss First)

/run DismissCompanion("critter");g={"","his","her"}; x=UnitSex("player");i=random(GetNumCompanions("critter"));id,name=GetCompanionInfo("critter",i);SendChatMessage("calls for "..g[x].." faithful friend, "..name ..".","emote");CallCompanion("critter",i);
  • Credit Totemfellow of Silvermoon
    • Based on the above macro by Xaeros of Silvermoon
  • Use: Click to summon a random companion. You will first dismiss any companion you already have out. The default message is "[player] calls for [his/her] faithful friend, [pet name]." This uses all 255 characters, so any altered message will need to be equal or shorter in length.
  • Works in 4.3.4

Target's Gender

Have you ever wondered, "Is Razorscale a boy or a girl?", when directing a raid to attack "him" or "her"? Well now you can pronoun with confidence!

Maybe not the most "useful" macro, but a fun one :) Use this to discover your target's gender. You may be surprised, every once in a while Blizz slips up and flags Male NPCs as Female and vice-versa.

/run local x=UnitSex("target");local g={"n unknown!", " boy!", " girl!"} n=GetUnitName("target");if IsShiftKeyDown()then SendChatMessage(n .." is a" ..g[x],"SAY");else print(n .." is a" ..g[x]);end
  • Credit: Xaeros of Shadowmoon

Raid Blame (now with Guild Blame!)

Have you ever been in a raid that had an unfortunate wipe? Has your raid ever been left wondering, "What just happened? Who should we blame this on?"? Well, wonder no more! With this macro blame can always be placed upon those who most deserve it with 100% accuracy! [NEW!] Too much blame to go around, and not enough raiders? Well now you can blame the whole guild!

/run x=GetNumGuildMembers(1)g=x>0 and GetGuildRosterInfo(random(1,x))or 0;y=GetNumRaidMembers()r=y>0 and GetUnitName('raid'..random(1,y))or 0;if IsShiftKeyDown()then c,b="Raid",r else c,b="guild",g end;SendChatMessage("[iBlame]: "..b..".",c);

  • Use: Click the macro to blame any member of your guild in /guild ! (ex: [iBlame]: RandomGuildie)
  • Use: Shift+Click the macro to blame any member of your raid in /raid ! (ex: [iBlame]: RandomRaider)
  • Extra: This macro currently pulls a random guild member from the entire guild, if you'd rather only blame ONLINE members, change "x=GetNumGuildMembers(1)" to "x=GetNumGuildMembers(0)"

Target Wealth

By selecting a (player) target and clicking this macro, you can see the most amount of gold that player has ever owned! This doesn't show the total amount of money they've ever had, just the single largest sum of money they've ever possessed at once.

/run if not zb then zb=CreateFrame("Frame")zb:RegisterEvent("INSPECT_ACHIEVEMENT_READY")zb:SetScript("OnEvent",function()print(UnitName("target").." ("..UnitLevel("target")..") "..GetComparisonStatistic(334))end)end SetAchievementComparisonUnit("target")

Gold Counter

This macro allows you to track how much gold you've made or lost in a specified span of time. Shift/Ctrl/Alt click to set the starting point. Then just click it to show how much gold you've made/lost since the last starting point. Clicking it does not reset the starting point, you have to Shift/Ctrl/Alt click again to reset it.

/run if IsModifierKeyDown()then cG=GetMoney() print("Setting start point")else if (GetMoney()<cG)then print("Total money lost: "..GetCoinText(cG-GetMoney(),", ")) else print("Total money made: "..GetCoinText(GetMoney()-cG,", ")) end end

Usage:

  • Shift, Ctrl, or Alt click to set the starting point
  • Click to show the total amount of money made/lost since the last starting point
  • Works in 4.2.2
