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 Enhancement Shamans can benefit from.

Useful Enhancement Shaman Macros

1.1.

Arena Targeting

This macro allows you to target each of the enemy team players without clicking with your mouse. This is a more efficient method of changing targets. You should replace "arena1" with "arena2" and "arena3" for subsequent macros.

  • /target arena1
2.

Wind Shear 123 Macro

  • #showtooltip Wind Shear
  • /cast [target=arena1] Wind Shear

Using this macro will use Wind Shear Icon Wind Shear 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.

2.1.

Earth Shield Friend Macro

If you select the Earth Shield Icon Earth Shield talent, you want a way to easily apply this ability to your teammates without having to switch targets or click their nameplates. The below options for this macro should allow you to maintain a high uptime on Earth Shield and maximize one of the best Elemental Shaman utilities for their team.

  • /cast [target=PLAYERNAME] Earth Shield

Alternatively, you can make the macro target the generic party members, as used in earlier friendly team targeting macros.

2.2.

Healing Teammates

This is for healing teammates without having to switch targets. We use macros for targets specifically by their name to make sure we heal the correct target without a doubt. This approach is more precise but takes time to maintain the macro if you play with various players.

  • /cast [target=PLAYERNAME] Healing Surge

Alternatively, you can make the macro target the generic party members, as used in earlier friendly team targeting macros.

3.

Hex 123 Macro

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

Using this macro will cast Hex Icon Hex 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.

4.

Hex Focus Macro

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

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 Polymorph Icon Polymorph on that player while you are still focused on your target.

5.

Cleanse Spirit Macro

  • #showtooltip Cleanse Spirit
  • /cast [@PlayerNameHere, exists] Cleanse Spirit

This macro will use Cleanse Spirit Icon Cleanse Spirit on whichever teammate you put into the macro. It is recommended that you make a macro for both of your teammates.

6.

Purge Focus Macro

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

This macro uses Purge Icon Purge on any enemy you have as your focus target. This is useful for Purging important buffs on one enemy while still targeting the other.

7.

Cursor Macros

These macros are great for quickly placing totems, instead of clicking it to active the placement icon then clicking to place it. The totem will be placed wherever your cursor is.

8.

Capacitor Cursor Macro

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast [@cursor] Capacitor Totem
9.

Earthbind Cursor Macro

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast [@cursor] Earthbind Totem
10.
