Out of all slices of World of Warcraft content, PvP requires the largest number of WoW macros, for any class or spec. You simply cannot be competitive playing without any macros.
Of course, you might not be a LUA expert and probably don’t know how to write who knows what advanced macro. But, to learn how to write the most common WoW macros is not a hard nut to crack. In fact, you can reach quite a nice arena rating using just a few common macros, specific to your class, race and spec.
The purpose of this post is to give you a general and simple formula for “BURN” macros.
But first, what’s a “BURN” macro?
It’s a macro that simultaneously burns several of your major cooldowns, to achieve a high damage or burst when the time is right, to be sure that one of your opponents dies, or uses some of their important cooldowns as well.
Here’s the formula:
/cast DPS cooldown 1
/cast DPS cooldown 2
/cast racial ability (if it’s the case)
/use trinket 1
In case this general WoW macro doesn’t speak clearly enough for you, here’s an example:
/cast Empower Rune Weapon
/cast Pillar of Frost
/cast Blood Fury
/use Impatience of Youth
This is one of the WoW macros that I use on my Frost DK. After I have cleared a full bar of Runic Power on a target and that target is diseased and debuffed, hitting this macro will grant me a sweet damage burst.
I hope this post on WoW Macros helps. May your enemies perish!
