In this downtime between expansion packs, I’ve been experimenting with the warlock slightly. Messing around with macros, mainly, and I thought I’d share a few with you!
Fire & Brimstone macro
/cast [mod:shift] !Fire and Brimstone
/cancelaura [nomod] Fire and Brimstone
What does this do? Well, I use it with Immolate, Conflagrate and Incinerate. Activating/deactivating Fire & Brimstone doesn’t incur a global cooldown, so pressing shift & the keybind for, say, Incinerate, activates F&B then casts Incinerate as AoE! Pressing your Incinerate key with no modifier will deactivate F&B if active, then cast Incinerate as single target.
Replace the red text with the spell of choice. Spells this works with are Incinerate, Immolate, Conflagrate, and your Curses.
This interrupts your current cast, and immediately casts Shadowburn. Useful for if there’s an add you can get bonus embers off through Shadowburn, but will die too fast if you don’t get that Shadowburn off right now, rather than let your cast complete THEN Shadowburn.
Soulstone mouseover macro
/use [@mouseover,noharm][@target,noharm] Soulstone
This casts Soulstone on either your mouseover, or your target if you’re not hovering over anyone.
Soulburn: Soul Swap
#showtooltip Soul Swap
/cast Soul Swap
Simple macro really, this basically inflicts all 3 DoTs at once as affliction, with only 1 button press! Useful for when your trinkets proc. Instant application of powerful DoTs!
/cast [@mouseover] Havoc
Hover your mouse over a nameplate or an enemy, press this button, and you use Havoc on it without having to change targets! Useful for Chaos Bolting.
Want your green fire? Well, these macros should help!
#showtooltip Fel Flame Breath
/cast [@player] Fel Flame Breath
/cast [@player] Demonic Siphon
/target Pit Lord
/cast Enslave Demon
/target Doom Lord
What do these do? The Fel Flame Breath macro makes your Pit Lord cast said spell on you, which deals damage to you but also removes annoying debuffs. The Demonic Syphon macro forces the Pit Lord to use that ability, which heals you! The Charge macro forces the Pit Lord to charge Kanrethad, stunning him for a time, and makes him take extra damage. Use it when he’s casting Cataclysm to interrupt it. The last two macros do exactly as they say. They enslave the Pit Lord, and banish a Doom Lord.
Camera distance console command
/console CameraDistanceMaxFactor 5
Not a macro, but type this and marvel as you are able to zoom out a lot further than you could before! See all the crap on the ground! Avoid it all!
Well, these are the macros I use on a regular basis, along with a useful console command and a set of macros for a very tough, situational fight. Happy warlocking!
