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 [spec:2]Riposte; Evasion
/cast Vanish
/cast Cloak of Shadows
  • Works in: 7.1

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[]

  • Requires Specialization: Assassination

One Button Poisons[]

This will apply Deadly Poison to your weapon with a left mouse click, and Crippling Poison with a right click.

/use [btn:1] Deadly Poison; [btn:2] Crippling Poison
  • Works in: 7.1

One Button Poisons - Advanced[]

Hold shift for Leeching, control for Crippling, alt for Wound, or just click for Deadly.

/use [mod:shift] Leaching Poison; [mod:ctrl] Crippling Poison; [mod:alt] Wound Poison; Deadly Poison
  • Works in: 7.1

Pick Pocket Macros[]

This macro allows you to sap and pickpocket with a single button. You do not have to worry about targeting any mobs either, as it is a mouseover macro. Simply mouse over the appropriate mob and click the macro.

#showtooltip Pick pocket
/use [@mouseover,harm,nodead]Sap
/use [@mouseover,harm,nodead]Pick Pocket
  • Works in: 7.1

This macro allows you to both target and pickpocket your target with one button. As long as the target is in front of you and in range, it will work

/stopmacro [noexists] 
/cast Pick Pocket
  • Works in: 7.1
