Standard Raider Macro Collection

Standard Raider Macro Collection

This thread will consolidate all macros that we recommend/require YaWA members to use for specific raid encounters. It is organized by boss. When a new macro is requested or posted, I will add it to the main post. Off-topic posts in this thread will be deleted.
  • Encounter List
  • 2.1: General Macros
  • 2.2: Lady Vashj
  • 2.3: Kael'thas Sunstrider
  • 2.4: High Warlord Naj'entus
  • 2.5: Teron Gorefiend
1: Setting Up Macros

These are the Cliff Notes on setting up macros for complete noobs. If you can't figure it out with the instructions below, ask someone to help you on Vent.
  1. In WoW, type "/macro" on the chat line (without quotation marks). Press Enter.
  2. Click "New".
  3. Type a name for the macro (anything will do).
  4. Pick an icon for the macro (the "?" icon is fine).
  5. Click "OK".
  6. Alt-Tab or task switch back to this web page.
  7. Click and drag to highlight the text within the "Code" block of the macro you want.
  8. Press Ctrl-C, or right-click on the highlighted text and click "Copy".
  9. Alt-Tab or task switch back to WoW.
  10. Press Ctrl-V to paste the text into the macro.
  11. Drag the icon for the macro you just created from the macro window to an empty slot on one of your action bars.
  12. Click the macro to do the thing the macro does.

2: Macros by Encounter

2.1: General Macros

Super Target: This macro will quickly and easily target the critical unit or units in most boss fights.

Code: Select all

/tar Demon
/tar Corrupted
/tar Spitfire
/tar Astral
/tar Sinister
/tar Inner
/tar Tainted
Target + Cast: This macro will switch to a critical target when you hold the Alt key while activating it, allowing you to pair it with your favorite nuke.

Code: Select all

#showtooltip
/tar [mod:alt]Demon
/tar [mod:alt]Corrupted
/tar [mod:alt]Spitfire
/tar [mod:alt]Astral
/tar [mod:alt]Sinister
/tar [mod:alt]Inner
/tar [mod:alt]Tainted
/cast Fireball
Broadcast Target: For raid leaders, this macro tells everyone which mob to target next by raid symbol, based on your current target.

Code: Select all

/script local i,s,g,u,c={"star","circle","diamond","triangle","moon","square","cross","skull"}, SendChatMessage,GetRaidTargetIndex("target"),UnitName("target"),"RAID_WARNING" if g then s("Target: {"..i[g].."} "..u,c)else s("Target: "..u,c)end

2.2: Lady Vashj

Tainted Core: The following macro will attempt to throw the Tainted Core to your current target, whisper the target, announce it to the raid, and if the target is out of range will whisper them that they are out of range and ping the map with your current location.

Code: Select all

/use Tainted Core 
/run f=SendChatMessage w="WHISPER"c="Tainted Core"t="target"u=UnitName(t)if IsItemInRange(c,t)==1 then f("You have the "..c,w,nil,u)f(u.." has "..c,"RAID")else f("Can't throw core at you. Get close!",w,nil,u)Minimap:PingLocation(0,0)end
Net Strider: For netting striders and notifying the current target of the strider (also works for the Pally stun, just replace /use with /cast Hammer of Justice):

Code: Select all

/use Netherweave Net 
/script SendChatMessage("Netting "..UnitName("targettarget").."'s Strider!","YELL"); 
/script SendChatMessage("Netting your Strider!", "whisper",nil,UnitName("targettarget"));
BoF MT: Paladins may want to have the following macro set to cast Hand of Freedom on the MT as soon as Vashj casts entangle. Change "MTName" to the name of the main tank. As an alternative, ZOMGBuffs (see the Recommended Addons sticky thread) has the ability to set up a hotbutton to track who you are supposed to cast BoF on.

Code: Select all

#showtooltip
/cast [target=MTName, nodead][] Hand of Freedom
2.3: Kael'thas Sunstrider

Equip/Use Weapon: Equip and use one of the weapons in one macro. You must change this to indicate your preferred weapon, of course.

Code: Select all

#showtooltip 
/equip Phaseshift Bulwark 
/use Phaseshift Bulwark
Equip/Use Bow: Equip the Netherstrand Longbow automatically, summon lots of pretty Nether Spikes, and equip them as ammo. Important note: you must manually open the Bundle of Nether Spikes before you can equip them.

Code: Select all

#showtooltip 
/equip Netherstrand Longbow 
/use Netherstrand Longbow 
/script EquipItemByName("Nether Spike",0)
2.4: High Warlord Naj'entus

Use Spine: Targets Naj'entus and uses the spine that you (hopefully) plucked from your fellow raid members in time.

Code: Select all

#showtooltip
/tar High Warlord Naj'entus
/use Naj'entus Spine
2.5: Teron Gorefiend

Ghost Killer: This macro will automatically target the nearest Shadowy Construct and cast Spirit Lance at it. You do not have to face the target to use Spirit Lance, and the global cooldown is 1 second. IMPORTANT: Do not put this macro in a slot in your primary action bar, because it will be replaced by the pet bar that appears when you turn into a ghost. (Note: Updated for 3.0.2)

Code: Select all

#showtooltip
/target Shadowy Construct 
/cast Spirit Lance
