Frost Death Knight PvP Useful Macros (Shadowlands / 9.1)

Last updated on Jul 02, 2021 at 11:04 by Flarkness 5 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 Frost Death Knights can benefit from.

This page is part of our Frost Death Knight PvP Guide.

1.

Burst Macro

  • #showtooltip Pillar Of Frost
  • /cast Pillar of Frost
  • /cast Empower Rune Weapon
  • /cast Unchained Gladiator's Badge of Ferocity

This macro combines your offensive cooldowns and trinket that are off the Global Cooldown, meaning they can all be used at the same time. This will save on button space and time to press each individually and focus on getting your burst out as fast as possible which is great when using the powerful setups Frost Death Knight has. The trinket is whichever PVP trinket you have available, if you have the Aspirant's version, you would have to type that instead. If you are an orc, you can also cast Blood Fury Icon Blood Fury in this macro.

2.

Asphyxiate 123 Macro

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

Using this macro will use Asphyxiate Icon Asphyxiate on arena enemy 1. This makes it easier to stun 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.

Death Grip 123 Macro

  • #showtooltip Death Grip
  • /cast [target=arena1] Death Grip

Using this macro will use Death Grip Icon Death Grip on arena enemy 1. This makes it easier to setup engages on the 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.

Mind Freeze 123 Macro

  • #showtooltip Mind Freeze
  • /cast [target=arena1] Mind Freeze

Using this macro will use Mind Freeze Icon Mind Freeze on arena enemy 1. This makes it easier to use interrupts on various enemies while staying focused on your target. If you want macros for the second and third enemies, simply change the arena1 to arena2 or arena3.

5.

Death Grip Focus Macro

  • #showtooltip Death Grip
  • /cast [target=focus] Death Grip

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 use Death Grip Icon Death Grip on that player while you are still focused on your target.
