This is only the first round of updates here at Zug Gaming, and you can expect a lot more. But we also want to hear from you! We know you’ve got kick-butt macros and we would love to feature your personal macro creations in our guides. If you have a macro you’d like to share please drop us a comment below or send me an email via the contact form.
When it comes to macros, the druid class has seen both extremes. From the classes initial conception, which literally required dozens of macros to effectively operate in both PvP and PvE environments, to the more simplistic druid we see today. After years of tweaking and adjustment this type of mass macro creation is no longer environment (thank God!), as many shifting abilities are now automatic.

Restoration Druid Macros
/cast Nature’s Swiftness
/cast Healing Touch
/cast [target=mouseover] Healing Touch
/cast [target=mouseover] Rejuvenation
/cast [target=mouseover] Lifebloom
Simply adjust the spell and you’re good to go. These macros are simply amazing and I’ve used them on my shaman as a raid healer to incredible effectiveness. This allows you to simply hover over frames and pop heals off as fast as your mouse can move to the next raid frame (as opposed to having to click the frame).
This method of raid healing really gets awesome when you take advantage of another user interface mod for raids called grid. Grid is pretty simplistic, but that’s even better for us. It’s simple, it’s easy…simply hover and start dropping heals and HoTs across the raid. Checkout the full Grid user interface guide.
In addition, you could also handle other spells, buffs, etc. in this same manner.
/castsequence reset=30 [target=player] Innervate, Thorns(Rank 1), Mark of the Wild(Rank 1), Rejuvenation(Rank 1)
Feral Druid Macros
This type of macro helps druid’s to overcome one of the biggest mistakes I’ve seen while raiding…failure to quickly engage auto attack. Simply putting a one line /startattack line before each of your primary attack abilities will do a world of good…not only for feral DPS, but for feral tanking. Many player’s view these as “unnecessary”, and believe me, those are the players who aren’t topping the DPS charts and are letting other player’s in the raid die due to their tanking failures.
#show Super Healing Potion
/use Master Healthstone
/use Super Healing Potion
/cast !Dire Bear Form
I really like this macro simply because it’s so damn fast. Even if you are tanking this is a nice macro to have for those panic situations. Simply take a step away from the boss, spam this macro and you’ll be healed to full in a snap.
Replace the master health stone / super healing potion with what ever potions you’d like to consume, or add additional consumables in there. Since the first /use macro will pull you out of bear and take the pot, you consolidate several steps together, making this macro nearly instantaneous.
/use Moroes’ Lucky Pocket Watch
Just replace Moroes’ Lucky Pocket Watch for your current tanking trinket(s). Also, for cat druids check out the macro below.
/use Bloodlust Brooch
Same as the above macro, change the trinket name / attack name to those of your choosing. The same will apply to any spec. These are great macros to help put several button combinations together.
/cast [stance:1, target=mouseover,exists,harm,nodead] [stance:1,target=target] Feral Charge – Bear; [stance:3, target=mouseover,exists,harm,nodead] [stance:3,target=target] Feral Charge – Cat
This will charge your current mouseover target whether you’re in Bear or Cat form. If you don’t have a mouseover target, it will charge your current target.
/cast !Bear Form(Shapeshift)
This shifts you into Dire Bear form and can be used to shift from Dire Bear form to Dire Bear form. Use thisto get out of CC without losing your Bear form buffs, but it will drop your rage to 0.
/cast Swipe (Bear)
Casts Swipe and queues up Maul
Balance Druid Macros
/use Hex Shrunken Head
Just change the name of the trinket to your own spell damage trinket.
General Druid Macros
/targetexact Wrath of Air Totem
/targetexact Mana Spring Totem
/targetexact Poison Cleansing Totem
/targetexact Windfury Totem V
/targetexact Mana Tide Totem
/targetexact Grounding Totem
/cast Moonfire(Rank 1)
Hilarious macro to really piss off shamans. Spam this while you’re kiting in PvP situations to really punish a shaman’s totem forest.
/castsequence [target=player] reset=10 Thorns, Omen of Clarity, Mark of the Wild
/castsequence reset=target Mark of the Wild, Thorns
