Last updated on Aug 27, 2022 at 10:15 by Sellin 1 comment

Welcome to our Macros guide for Death Knights where you will find out what the best macros are for your Death Knight in WotLK Classic.



The focus of this section is to show you some examples of some basic macros and explain how they work. A Macro is a line of commands that you can input into a text box that will execute the written commands in the order you have given them with a single button press.


Macros for Death Knight in Wrath of the Lich King Classic


Gargoyle snapshotting

  • /use [combat] 13
  • /use [combat] 14
  • /use [combat] Potion of Speed
  • /use [combat] 10
  • /startattack
  • /petattack
  • /cast Summon Gargoyle

Your Summon Gargoyle IconSummon Gargoyle ability benefits from the stats you have at the time of casting the ability; it does not update dynamically. The macro listed above will use your trinkets/glove enchant if you are an Engineer as well as a Potion of Speed Icon Potion of Speed, giving you the greatest benefit possible for your Gargoyle.


Stop cast Mind Freeze

  • #showtooltip Mind Freeze
  • /stopcasting
  • /cast Mind Freeze

While you will not often be casting as a Death Knight, it is crucial to be able to interrupt, so this macro just ensures that you will be able to interrupt without possibly being stuck channeling or casting something.


Death Knight 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 visit our Death Knight Addons page.
