Rogue Macros 3.X

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

Here are some of my favorite rogue macros for both PvE, PvP and, Utility.

#showtooltip Deadly Throw
/Cast Deadly Throw
/Cast Throw

Is a great space saver macro.  This will use Deadly Throw if you have combo points on the target, if not it will use your thrown weapon.  For leveling rogues or, if you have more than one ranged weapon for different situations.   You can add the line /cast shoot at the end to use your bow/gun also.

/cast [modifier:alt] Eviscerate; Envenom

I use this macro for my PvE Mutilate spec.  Sometimes while questing/farming or even rarely during raids a mob will almost be dead but, you haven't gotten a Deadly Poison up yet.  Hold Alt and this macro will switch to Eviscerate instead of the standard Envenom.

#showtooltip Tricks of the Trade
/cast [target=focus,help] Tricks of the Trade

Great for raids.  Set whoever you will be wanting to cast Tricks of the Trade on as your focus using /focus with them targeted.  And this macro will cast TotT on them without ever deselecting your current target.  Not only is this macro convenient; it is also a DPS boost as you will not loose any white attacks due to switching targets.  And for PvP you can just replace the [target=focus,help] with [target=(teammate name)] and get the same benefit while keeping your focus frame available for an enemy target.

#show sap
/cast sap

A PvP macro that will clear your current target, attempt to find the closest target and, sap them.  What that boils down to is that this macro is a spammable sap macro very useful for fining enemy stealthers.  Any PvP rogue should have this macro on their bars along with standard sap.

#showtooltip Mutilate
/cast Mutilate

((If you are combat just replace Mutilate with Sinister Strike)) This macro will start your auto attacks on a target even if you do not have the energy to perform your yellow attack.  This will save you those couple of seconds waiting on energy and will make sure you are at least white hitting your target.

#showtooltip Stealth
/cast [modifier: shift] Stealth; !Stealth

A spammable Stealth macro. This macro will dismount you and put you into stealth.  No matter how many times you hit after you are in stealth it, will not de-stealth.  If you want to exit stealth, hold down the Shift key and press the button.  I personally like to have the /dismount in there for quickly and easily getting off of my flying mount. Just be careful hitting this if you are flying at any altitude.

/cast [nomodifier] blind
/cast [modifier:alt, target=focus] blind
/stopmacro [nomodifier]

This Blind macro will Blind your current target by default.  Or you can hold down the Alt key to blind your target.  This is a great macro for Arenas.

/use [nomodifier] Wound Poison VII; [modifier:alt] Deadly Poison IX; [modifier:shift] Instant Poison IX; [modifier: ctrl] Mind-numbing Poison
/use [button:1] 16; [button:2] 17

And this All-in-one poison macro is one of my favorites.  One action bar button for all of your poisons.
By default this macro will show Wound Poison.  Hold down Alt for Deadly.  Hold Shift for Instant.  And hold Ctrl for Mind-numbing.
Click the button with your left mouse to apply shown poison to your Main Hand and click with the right mouse to apply the shown poison to your Off Hand.

All of these can be edited to fit your keybinds or play style.  Such as changing the modifiers.  It is as simple as just changing a line like: [modifier: shift] to [modifier: alt].

If you would like to learn more about building a macro, I highly suggest   as a start.  Macros can be confusing or intimidating but, knowing what they are capable of doing and how to get the most out using them will greatly increase not only your gaming experience but, also your play.
