About the Author
My name is Guiltyas, I raid in Whatever on Auchindoun Alliance, where I rejoined after Uldir. I've played feral since Wrath when I picked it up as main. I'm well respected in the Feral community and you can find me talking about Feral (passionately) in a few different places,
, and of course the
I enjoy walks on the beach and this is really what makes me reliable on the subject of Ferals! I do not own a cat :(
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
Focus macros are a simple way of casting a spell on a secondary target that you designate.
They follow the following formula
Focus macros are a simple way of casting a spell on a secondary target that you hover over without targeting.
They follow the following formula
Priority Interrupt Macro:
/use Skull Bash
/tar <Target Name>
/cast Skull Bash
/tell <player> You're next
You do have to know the monster name in advance, but it will focus the add you need to interrupt hit
and you shouldn't leave your current target. The extra logic is in there in case you are already targeting the mob in question.
#showtooltipp Tiger's Dash; Wild Charge; Renewal
/cast Tiger's Dash
/cast Wild Charge
/cast Wild Charge
This macro will display the tooltip for whichever talent on the level 30 tier, will cast the selected talent and if an ally is selected will cancel form and wildcharge to the target.
Bloodtalons Healing Touch Macro:
/run if InCombatLockdown() then SetCVar("autounshift",0) end
/console autounshift 1
This just prevents you from shifting to caster form if you hit
and you don't have Predatory Swiftness. It will also cast rebirth on the mouseover if the mouseover is dead.
Utility talent macro:
#showtooltipp Mighty Bash; Mass Entanglement; Typhoon
/cast Mass Entanglement
/cast Mighty Bash
Nothing complex here. Just keeps the same button no matter which utility talent you pick.
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".
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 Feral Druid 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.
The main addon that I would recommend for any feral is Weakauras. Weakauras is a powerful tool that will allow you to modify your UI or visual space in order to display the information you need to see most easily. Where I too pick a single addon to use it would be Weakauras.
My weakauras can be found
Other Weakaura compilations can be found in the Dreamgrove discord resources channel.
If you want to setup your own display then I would recommend
by moonbunnie which provides an easy plug and play set of snapshotting indicators.
While it's easy to use someone else's Weakauras, and many people do, I would recommend learning to use the addon yourself in order to customise the way your fed information to most accurately conform to how you yourself learn. If you want to learn more about how to use Weakauras the guide
I'd also recommend looking around on
