Welcome to our Macros guide for Druids where you will find out what the best macros are for your Druid in TBC Classic.

1.

Foreword

While this is not an exhaustive list of all possible / useful macros, we will be exemplifying almost all macro functionalities below. Use these templates as an example and replace their spells with the ones you feel will be most useful to you, personally.

TBC Classic Druid Macro Templates

2.1.

Power Shifting

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast !Cat Form
  • /startattack [form:3,harm,nodead]

This is a simple macro that will activate Cat Form IconCat Form even if you were already in Cat to begin with. It uses the new ! command to prevent going into humanoid form if you lack the Mana to powershift, making it safe to use.

2.2.

One-Button Travel Form

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast [swimming] !Aquatic Form;[outdoors] !Travel Form; !Cat Form

This is a great macro that is a one-button Travel Form. It will put you into either Travel Form IconTravel Form, Aquatic Form IconAquatic Form, or Cat Form IconCat Form depending on if you are outdoors, in water, or elsewhere.

2.3.

Mouse-over Healing

  • #showtooltip Regrowth
  • /cast [@mouseover,exists,help][@player] Regrowth(Rank 1)

Especially as a healer, some people find it easier to cast healing spells by mousing over their intended target on their raid frame, rather than clicking and actually targeting them.

This saves time and will allow you to keep an enemy targeted, which can be useful in raids to track casts. For other spells like Healing Touch IconHealing Touch, just replace "Regrowth" in the "/cast" line of macro. You can also replace the rank with whatever rank you want of the spell. If you wish to see the tooltip of the rank you picked, you need to specify it on the #showtooltip part as well.

2.4.

Rake and Pounce

  • /cast [nostealth] Rake; [stealth] Pounce

This puts both Rake IconRake and Pounce IconPounce into the same bind, so you do not need two separate buttons, depending on if you are in stealth or not. You can modify this with any two abilities for when you are and are not stealthed.

2.5.

Stealth

  • #showtooltip Prowl
  • /cast [noform:3] Cat Form
  • /cast !Prowl

This macro will allow you to quickly go into Cat Form IconCat Form to use Prowl IconProwl from any form with just one button.

2.6.

Bear and Cat Mangle in one button

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast [nomod,stance:1] Mangle (Bear)
  • /cast [nomod,stance:3] Mangle (Cat)
  • /cast [nomod,nostance] Cat Form

This macro allows you to use Mangle IconMangle with a single button, no matter what your form is. It will also put you into Cat Form IconCat Form if you are not in a form yet.

2.7.

Dash

  • #showtooltip Dash
  • /cast [noform:3] Cat Form
  • /cast !Dash

This macro will allow you to quickly go into Cat Form IconCat Form to use Dash IconDash from any form with just one button.

2.8.

Faerie Fire (Feral)

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast [nomod,stance:1] Faerie Fire (Feral)
  • /cast [nomod,stance:3] Faerie Fire (Feral)
  • /cast Faerie Fire

Mostly useful if you use different specs often, this macro will allow you to use Faerie Fire (Feral) IconFaerie Fire (Feral) when in a form and the regular Faerie Fire IconFaerie Fire, otherwise.

3.

TBC Classic Druid Addons

Macros are very important in making your character play as smoothly as possible, but so do addons, for which reason we recommend that you also read our Druid Addons page.
