If you’re using multiple macros in your WoW keybinding, it’s best to assign suggestive tooltips for each one of them, to remember, at least as you get used to them, what exactly they do. Now, you can choose the macro for WoW tooltip from the icons tab as you create the macro, but until you get the desired one, it might take time. So, what’s best that you can do.

I’ll give you an example. Let’s say you’re using this macro for WoW:

/castsequence reset=4 Icy Touch, Plague Strike, Pestilence


/cast Icy Touch
/cast Blood Fury
/use 13

If when you create the macro, you choose the question mark icon, by default, both macros will receive the Icy Touch icon. In other words, whatever spell is cast first in a macro, that’s the icon that particular macro for WoW will receive, if you choose the question mark when you create it.

But in case you don’t want that macro to have a more suggestive icon, you can add the command #show [name of the spell] and the macro will automatically receive that tooltip.

For example, if I give this “show tooltip” command to the first macro:

#show Pestilence
/castsequence reset=4 Icy Touch, Plague Strike, Pestilence

… this macro for WoW will automatically load the Pestilence icon as it’s tooltip.

Important to know here, in case you want to choose for your macro for WoW an icon of an ability that your current spec doesn’t have, the macro will display the question mark because your class doesn’t know that ability.

For example, this macro for WoW

#show Pyroblast
/castsequence reset=4 Icy Touch, Plague Strike, Pestilence

… will display the question mark, or the Icy Touch icon, because death knights don’t have the Pyroblast spell.
