Macros are simple, in-game tools which allow you to sequence spells together, create custom names and icons, cast different abilities depending on whether the target is friendly or hostile, define targeting conditions, and much, much more. While the amount of options can be complex, making them is easy, so in this section we'll go over how to set them up yourself.
To open the in-game Macro interface, type "/macro" or "/m".
Choose between the General and Character-specific macro tabs. Then click the "New" button on the macro window.
Choose a Name and an Icon so you can easily recognize your macro, then click "Okay."
Select your new macro and use the text editor below to tell it what to do. If copying ours below, you can simply copy/paste the text in.
Click the "Save" button, and drag your macro icon onto your bars, which will allow it to be used just like any other spell from your spellbook.
To close the window, click "Exit", or just press Escape.
For more information on creating macros, including full lists of conditionals, modifiers, and other command customizations you can use, check out our full
There are a couple of useful Macros that a Frost DK can utilise. These help us to use spells and abilities in different ways, or with added functionality. Big shoutout to Chewie at the Acherus discord for providing input for all these macros!
is a central part of any build with the talent equipped. If you don't use it properly, you will lose out on a huge amount of DPS. It is therefore quite unfortunate how easy it is to cancel this ability accidentally! To help us prevent this, we use the following macro which makes it impossible to cancel the ability:
#showtooltip Breath of Sindragosa
/cast !Breath of Sindragosa
is can be very useful in many situations. More specifically, when it can be difficult to select your target, or when you don't want to switch back and forth to just cast
. This Macro casts
at the target you have your mouse over.
#showtooltip Death Grip
/cast Death Grip; Death Grip
If you want to cast it on your focus target:
#showtooltip Death Grip
/cast Death Grip; Death Grip
Switching between talents can sometimes be annoying when you have to switch out spells on your actionbars as well. Here are two Macros that automatically uses the talent that you have selected in the specific row, allowing you to use a single key bind for both situations:
/cast Wraith Walk
/cast Death Pact
I've already recommended one of these Macros but they are all useful. Excellent for when you don't want to switch the selected target, but still use an ability on something else. These Macros are so smart that they will use it on your main target if you don't mouseover a different one.
#showtooltip Mind Freeze
/cast Mind Freeze; Mind Freeze
/cast Asphyxiate; Asphyxiate
#showtooltip Raise Ally
/cast Raise Ally
PvP and Open-World Macros
, you sometimes want to use the ability as a pvp trinket. This macro enables you to double press it, to get out of CC and then remove the slow.
#showtooltip icebound fortitude
/cast icebound fortitude
/cancelaura Primal Rage
Addons are powerful tools that can be used to both customize your gameplay experience, ranging from graphical overlays, replacement action bars, and unit/raid frames, to performance enhancements such as rotation helping spell reminders, buff/debuff tracking, popup reminders, and boss warnings. Here are some of the highly recommended and commonly used Frost DK addons, which are certainly not required to play, but can go a long way toward increasing the information available to you in combat or simply make for a more pleasant viewing experience.
Unlike Macros, managing Addons is done outside of the game, but our
How to Install and Maintain Addons Guide
will take you step-by-step through the process.
Addons can effectively be divided into two categories: cosmetic ones that are used to display your action bars and various trackers, and functional ones which have a specific functionality built into them. Let's have a look at the two different categories and which addons can be found in them.
The cosmetic addons are personal from player to player and are decided by what you like the look of. These include
, WeakAuras and many more. The goal for these addons is the create a pleasant and compact interface that allows you to focus both on the fight but also on your various abilities, cooldowns and buffs. It's extremely important that you properly track the crucial things in a fight!
These addons can be viewed as additional elements that help your gameplay. They can tell you what to do during a fight (
Deadly Boss Mods
), they can track a large variety of raid events such as deaths, interrupts and damage (
) and they can be highly customized to do more things than what you can imagine (WeakAuras). I recommend getting at least one addon from each of these categories. I personally use DBM, Details, and WeakAuras.
