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 Holy Priests can benefit from.

This page is part of our Holy Priest PvP Guide.


Holy Word: Chastise 123 Macro

  • #showtooltip Holy Word: Chastise
  • /cast [target=arena1] Holy Word: Chastise

Using this macro will use Holy Word: Chastise Icon Holy Word: Chastise on arena enemy 1. This makes it easier to crowd control an enemy while healing your team. If you want macros for the second and third enemies, simply change the arena1 to arena2 or arena3. You can reproduce this macro with Mind Control Icon Mind Control.


Shadow Word: Death Macro

  • #showtooltip Shadow Word: Death
  • /stopcasting
  • /cast [@target,harm] Shadow Word: Death
  • /stopmacro [harm]
  • /targetenemy
  • /cast Shadow Word: Death
  • /targetlasttarget [harm]

This macro allows you to use Shadow Word: Death Icon Shadow Word: Death both to avoid incoming crowd control and to deal damage with only one keybind. If you target an enemy, the macro will simply use Shadow Word: Death on the enemy. This is what you want to deal damage and also to avoid CC. And if you target an ally the macro will target a nearby enemy to use the ability on. That way you can quickly press this macro when healing an ally if you notice a spell such as Polymorph Icon Polymorph being cast on you, and you will death it.


Void Shift Macro

  • #showtooltip Void Shift
  • /cast [target=party1] Void Shift

This macro allows you to cast Void Shift Icon Void Shift on your party1 without targeting it, as it is meant to be a spell you must press very quickly when nothing else will save your ally fast enough. You can reproduce this with party2 when you play 3v3 and have two people on your team.


Shackle Undead Macro

  • #showtooltip Shackle Undead
  • /cast [@arenapet1, exists] shackle undead
  • /cast [@arenapet2, exists] shackle undead
  • /cast [@arenapet3, exists] shackle undead

This very handy macro allows you to cast Shackle Undead Icon Shackle Undead on the Undead pet of a Hunter without having to target it, regardless of whether the Hunter is Arena1, Arena2, or Arena3. You simply need to use it and if there is an Undead pet it will be controlled. This is helpful to easily deny Roar of Sacrifice Icon Roar of Sacrifice when your team is about to do a go. Make sure to have a separate Shackle Undead keybind to crowd control a Death Knight who uses Lichborne Icon Lichborne.


Purify Party Macro

  • #showtooltip Purify
  • /cast [target=party1] Purify

Using this macro will cast Purify Icon Purify on party player 1. This makes it easier to dispel a teammate while healing the rest of your team. If you want a macro to dispel the second party member, change the party1 to party2.


Dispel Magic Macro

  • #showtooltip Dispel Magic
  • /cast [target=focus] Dispel Magic

This macro allows you to cast Dispel Magic Icon Dispel Magic on your focus target without having to target it.


Target Assist Macros

  • #showtooltip Holy Fire
  • /cast [harm][@targettarget] Holy Fire

This macro allows you to cast Holy Fire Icon Holy Fire on the target of any ally you are targeting yourself without targeting the enemy. Such a macro allows you to keep doing your damage rotation without having to switch targets between your DPS and their kill target. You can reproduce this macro with Mindgames Icon Mindgames, Smite Icon Smite, and Shadow Word: Pain Icon Shadow Word: Pain.


Holy Word: Sanctify Macro

  • #showtooltip Holy Word: Sanctify
  • /cast [@cursor] Holy Word: Sanctify

This macro allows you to drop your Holy Word: Sanctify Icon Holy Word: Sanctify on your cursor location without having to click it, allowing you to be faster. Make sure you are well aware of the range and radius of your spell before you stat using this macro.


Holy Ward Self Macro

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast [target=YOURNAMEHERE] Holy Ward

Using this macro will use Holy Ward Icon Holy Ward on yourself. This makes it quicker to use if crowd control is being cast on you.
