Macros and Addons
There are a few macros you may want to use when playing a Destruction Warlock. Here are some of the macros i use.
This macro makes your
mouseover which means you will be able to ressurect a member of your party or raid simply by mousing over them on your raid or party frames without having to change your target.
/cast Havoc; Havoc
This macro lets you cast
on the target you mouse over, if you do not mouse over anything it will be cast on your target instead.
/cast Summon Infernal
/cast Rain of Fire
These macros make your
Rain of Fire
automatically cast at your cursors location when you press the spell. This means you dont have to press the button and then select where you want to cast this spell.
/cast Channel Demonfire
/cast Dark Soul: Instability
This macro automatically switches between
Dark Soul: Instability
depending on what talent you have chosen.
How to make a macro
To open up the Macro menu, type "/macro" or "/m".
Choose between the "General" and Character-specific macro tabs. Then click on the "New" button on the macro window.
Choose a Name and an Icon so you can easily recognize your macro, then click on "Okay."
Select your macro's icon from the list at the top of the macro window, and then click in the text area below. Type or copy/paste your macro into the text area.
When you are finished, click the "Save" button, and to close the window, click "Exit".

Weakauras is an addon that allows you to track pretty much everything. One of the great things about weakauras is how easy it is to share your WeakAuras with other people. That also means you can very easily find WeakAuras for what spec or class you may be looking for. I suggest you go read the WeakAuras section of this guide to get some more information on this. You can also download my WeakAuras here.
