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

Wrath Classic Druid Macro Templates

2.1.

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 IconTravel 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.

2.2.

Mouse-over Healing

  • #showtooltip Regrowth
  • /cast [@mouseover,exists,help][@player] Regrowth

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, just replace "Regrowth" in the "/cast" line of macro.

2.3.

Stopcasting and Focus Cyclone Macro

  • #showtooltip Cyclone
  • /stopcasting
  • /cast [@focus] Cyclone

Sometimes, you really want to get a spell out as soon as possible, such as when using Cyclone IconCyclone on an enemy to stop a cast or peel for your allies. For these cases, it is very useful to have a /stopcasting macro, ensuring that your current cast does not interfere with the timing of your interrupt.

By adding the modifier [@focus] you can cast at your focus target instead, which can be useful when targeting a different player for damage purposes.

2.4.

Arena Frame Macros

  • #showtooltip Cyclone
  • /stopcasting
  • /cast [@arena1] Cyclone

For 3v3 Arena players, you can use @arena1, @arena2, and @arena3 as a modifier on your macros to cast your spells at those players, in the order they appear on your Arena frames. This allows you to quickly react with your interrupts and crowd control without targeting or focus requirements.

We only recommend this kind of macro for 3v3 because focus and regular targeting should be enough for 2v2, and 5v5 would require too many keybinds if you wanted to be able to target the full enemy team.

2.5.

Flying Farming Auto-Dismount Macro

  • #showtooltip
  • /run if IsSpellInRange("Moonfire","target")==1 then C_Timer.After(0.001,Dismount) end
  • /stopmacro [flying]
  • /cast Moonfire

Engaging an enemy with an instant spell used inside a simple auto-dismount macro while flying will cause it to instantly evade instead of being engaged. You can instead spam press this macro to dismount and immediately use your spell, as long as enemy is in range.

2.6.

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.

2.7.

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.

2.8.

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.

2.9.

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.

2.10.

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.

2.11.

Bearweave Macro Example

  • #showtooltip
  • /startattack
  • /run if GetSpellCooldown(768)>0 then SetCVar("autoUnshift",0) end;
  • /castsequence reset=4.5 !Dire Bear Form, Mangle (Bear), !Cat Form
  • /use [form:1] Enrage
  • /run SetCVar("autoUnshift",1)

This is a complex macro that allows you to more easily Bearweave, an advanced Cat DPS technique where you go into Dire Bear Form IconDire Bear Form during low Energy periods (better if Enrage IconEnrage is available for guaranteed Rage) and perform the Bear damage rotation while your energy regenerates in the background, quickly returning to Cat Form IconCat Form before you start wasting Energy regen, or earlier if you get an Omen of Clarity IconOmen of Clarity proc.

Check the pins on the Feral DPS Discord for more details and other useful Bearweaving macros!
