Affliction Warlock PvP Useful Macros (Shadowlands / 9.0.2)

Last updated on Jan 07, 2021 at 10:39 by Chanimal 6 comments

Macros are crucial to be successful in PvP. They allow players to use abilities on enemies without having to target them. This helps increase overall damage/healing and general awareness in the arena. Here are a few macros that all Affliction Warlocks can benefit from.

This page is part of our Affliction Warlock PvP Guide.

1.

Fear 123 Macro

  • #showtooltip Fear
  • /cast [target=arena1] Fear

Using this macro will cast Fear Icon Fear on arena enemy 1. This makes it easier to crowd control an enemy while staying focused on your target. If you want macros for the second and third enemies, simply change the arena1 to arena2 or arena3.

2.

Spell Lock 123 Macro

  • #showtooltip Spell Lock
  • /cast [target=arena1] Spell Lock

Using this macro will cast Spell Lock Icon Spell Lock on arena enemy 1. This makes it easier to interrupt an enemy while staying focused on your target. If you want macros for the second and third enemies, simply change the arena1 to arena2 or arena3.

3.

Fear Focus Macro

  • #showtooltip Fear
  • /cast [target=focus] Fear

If you find that you do not have much room on your action bars, you can use a focus macro. This is much simpler to use than the arena123 macro. Put an enemy on focus and this macro will cast Fear Icon Fear on that player while you are still focused on your target.

4.

Spell Lock Focus Macro

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast [target=focus] Spell Lock

This macro will use Spell Lock Icon Spell Lock on whichever enemy you have on focus. Because you will be primarily using Spell Lock Icon Spell Lock on the enemy healer, you should only need this focus macro.

5.

Shadowfury Cursor Macro

  • #showtooltip Shadowfury
  • /cast [@cursor] Shadowfury

This makes it so you can use Shadowfury Icon Shadowfury at your cursor, without the green AoE circle popping up. This saves you the time wasted from clicking and can be crucial to landing a Shadowfury faster than normal.

6.

Grimoire of Sacrifice Macro

  • #showtooltip Grimoire of Sacrifice
  • /cast Devour Magic
  • /cast Grimoire of Sacrifice

This makes it so that when you press Grimoire of Sacrifice, it will use your Devour Magic Icon Devour Magic ability from your pet before it is sacrificed. This helps save you from wasting your Devour Magic before it is sacrificed.
