WotLK Classic Guide to Paladin's Best Macros

Last updated on Aug 31, 2022 at 20:20 by Sellin 1 comment

Welcome to our Macros guide for Paladin where you will find out what the best macros are for your Paladin 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 Paladins in Wrath of the Lich King Classic


Cancel Hand of Protection

  • #showtooltip Hand of Protection
  • /cancelaura Hand of Protection

Hand of Protection IconHand of Protection is a powerful defensive cooldown, but when active mobs ignore your threat and could possibly kill allies. This macro works to quickly remove the buff so you can regain threat. You can easily construct a macro that does the same for Divine Shield IconDivine Shield as well using the same format.


Stop cast Hammer of Justice

  • #showtooltip Hammer of Justice
  • /stopcasting
  • /cast Hammer of Justice

Hammer of Justice IconHammer of Justice is an extremely powerful tool, especially in PvP, and you may need to cast it to quickly react to something. This macro stops whatever ability you may be casting and then casts Hammer of Justice immediately.


Mouse-over Utility

  • #showtooltip Hand of Freedom
  • /cast [@mouseover,exists,help][@player] Hand of Freedom

Mouse-over macros allow you to cast spells without actually targeting who you want the ability to be used on. Instead, mouse-overs make it so simply having your cursor over the enemy, ally, or party frame will allow you to cast on your intended target. Being able to use a spell like Cleanse IconCleanse, Hand of Protection IconHand of Protection, or Hand of Freedom IconHand of Freedom like this can sometimes save seconds and possibly save the target from dying.


Mouse-over Healing

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

Healing mouse-overs share the same idea as the utility ones listed above. This is largely a preference but can be quicker if you become proficient with it.


Paladin 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 Paladin Addons page.
