/cast Sinister Strike

/cast Sinister Strike
Standard usage of a trinket with your primary attack. Remember, “13″ is your top trinket slot.
/castrandom sinister strike, riposte
Not a 100% way, but if you are spamming your main attack key this is a great way to get those ripostes into your DPS without having to watch for it.
/castrandom sinister strike, ghostly strike
Spamable way to get ghostly strikes in your rotation without worrying about it.
/cast [target=mouseover,exists,harm,nodead][harm,nodead] Blind
Casts blind on your primary target, unless you have a mouse over target, in which case they will be your blind. Great way to get more out of your blind without having to drop target.
/cast cold blood
Simple enough, uses coldblood and eviscerate immediately after. Another great way to help reduce key clicks.
/cast Cheap Shot
You can also change cheap shot to any other opener. Great to build the extra combo point without even thinking.
/cast Pick Pocket
/cast Cheap Shot
You’ll need to turn on auto loot in the interface options for this to work properly. Also, you can change cheap shot to any other opener.

Macro that casts deadly throw on the target if you have combo points. If no combo points are present the macro will cast throw on the target.
/cast [target=Focus] Tricks of the Trade
