Last updated on Sep 27, 2022 at 10:51 by Simonize and Sellin 2 comments

Welcome to our Macros guide for Rogue, where you will find out what the best Macros are for your Rogue in Wrath of the Lich King Classic.



The macros on this page are broken down into general Rogue macros and macros intended for the specific specializations.


Macros for Rogues in Wrath of the Lich King Classic


General Macros


Spammable Stealth

  • #showtooltip Stealth
  • /cast !stealth

This macro allows you to spam your Stealth IconStealth without unstealthing yourself by mistake.


Overkill Buff

This macro will allow you to double-tap a single button to enter and exit Stealth IconStealth to trigger the buff from Overkill IconOverkill.

  • /cancelaura Stealth
  • /cast Stealth

Applying Poisons with One Button

  • #showtooltip Deadly Poison IX
  • /use Deadly Poison IX;
  • /use [button:1] 16; [button:2] 17;
  • /click StaticPopup1Button1

This allows you to add poisons to your weapons with a single press of each of your primary and secondary mouse buttons.


Swapping Off-Hand Weapons

  • /equipslot 17 WeaponName1
  • /equipslot 17 WeaponName2

Replace the "WeaponNameX" with your real weapon names and this macro will allow you to swap your off-hand weapons with a single button press.


Specialisation-Specific Macros

There is only one Specialization-specific macro and, despite it looking different from the other specialization-specific macros, it performs the same function, simply changing the generator being used in the macro.

  • #showtooltip Mutilate
  • /cast Mutilate
  • /startattack

The above example is for Assassination and ensures that, even if you do not have enough Energy for Mutilate IconMutilate, you will still start auto attacking.

The variant for Combat is as follows:

  • #showtooltip Sinister Strike
  • /cast Sinister Strike
  • /startattack

The variant for Subtlety is as follows:

  • #showtooltip Hemorrhage
  • /cast Hemorrhage
  • /startattack

Rogue Addons

While macros can certainly be helpful in improving your gameplay, their scope is fairly limited when compared to addons. You can learn more about what is possible with addons on our dedicated page below.
