Subtlety Rogue PvP Useful Macros (Dragonflight 10.2.7)

Last updated on May 07, 2024 at 11:20 by Shadenox 32 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 Subtlety Rogues can benefit from.

This page is part of our Subtlety Rogue PvP Guide.

1.

Generalities

Macros allow you to perform actions that are more complex than simply clicking your spell while targeting the enemy. They can be used for a wide variety of things, such as using several spells together with the press of one button, using abilities on specific targets without having to actually target them, and so on. As Rogue, it is essential to use a few macros in order to gain efficiency. The class has a lot of crowd control options available , and you don't want to constantly switch targets as it could lead to mistakes, makes you slower, and hurts your damage on your main target. Macros are the solution to this, as they allow you to use your CC abilities on someone you are not targeting without dropping your target!

The examples below are all with your Focus Target. You can replace focus by arena1, arena2, or arena3 to have an easier time landing CC on arena targets. It is not recommended to start from close to zero macros and attempt to create macros for everything instantly, as you may be overwhelmed. Instead, process slowly, starting only with the focus target and the most crucial spells, and create more macros as you get comfortable with the ones you have.
