Last updated on Jan 20, 2020 at 07:08 by Impakt 14 comments

Welcome to our Macros guide for Warlocks where you will find out what the best macros are for your Warlock in WoW Classic.



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.


Classic Warlock Macro Templates


Pet Recall

  • /petfollow
  • /petpassive

Sometimes, your pet will just go somewhere that you do not want it to go. This macro calls your pet back and ensures it will not start attacking something.


Pet Attack

  • #showtooltip Immolate
  • /petattack
  • /cast Immolate

A simple but useful macro that commands your pet to attack a target while also casting Immolate Icon Immolate on it. This is very useful for opening on new targets while soloing when you want your pet to tank. Replace Immolate with any spell that you want if you desire.


Single Button Pet Spells

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast [@mouseover,exists,pet:felhunter][@target,pet:felhunter]Spell Lock; [@mouseover,exists,pet:succubus][@target,pet:succubus]Seduction
  • #showtooltip
  • /cast [pet:Voidwalker] Sacrifice; [pet:imp] Fire shield; [pet:succubus,@mouseover,exists,nodead][pet:succubus,@target] Seduction; [pet:felhunter,@mouseover,exists,nodead][pet:felhunter,@target] Devour Magic;

These macros allow you to bind a spell from each pet to the same bind. The first one specifically will cast Spell Lock IconSpell Lock if you have a Felhunter, or Seduction IconSeduction if you have a Succubus. The second one will do the same thing, except with Sacrifice IconSacrifice, Fire Shield IconFire Shield, Seduction IconSeduction, and Devour Magic IconDevour Magic.


Spammable Wand

  • /cast !Shoot

Normally, if you keep hitting your Shoot Icon Shoot button, it will toggle between attacking and not attacking a target. This macro makes it so that you can spam the button and it will always command you to attack the enemy with a wand, allowing you to always get the optimal number of attacks off, even while moving and stopping.


Spammabel Drain

  • #showtooltip Drain Life
  • /cast [nochanneling:Drain Life] Drain Life

Normally, if you cast Drain Life Icon Drain Life while already casting it, you would start a new cast instead. This ensures that you will never clip Drain Lifes, thus not wasting mana. You can replicate this with Drain Soul Icon Drain Soul or any other channeled spell that you wish to spam.


Classic Warlock 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 Warlock Addons page.
