WOW Hunter Macros and Commands

Cheap WoW WOTLK Classic Gold

The functionality of most of the old macros has been removed. It is no longer possible to cast spells based on a unit's buffs, debuffs, health, mana, or distance. There is also no way of knowing if a spell is on cooldown. If you attempt to cast multiple spells in a macro and one of those spells is on cooldown, all spells after that will not be cast. This is known as a fall-through macro and its functionality has also been removed. Even with these changes, some cool and useful macros can still be created. Enjoy!

Revive, Call, or Mend Pet
/cast [target=pet, dead] Revive Pet; [modifier:ctrl] Revive Pet; [nopet] Call Pet; Mend Pet

Call or Dismiss Pet
/cast [pet] Dismiss Pet; Call Pet

Feed Multiple Pets

¡¤The first line forces the macro to display the number of Roasted Quail in your backpack. The /use line will use certain food based on what type of pet you have.

Cancel Cheetah Without Waiting For Cooldown

Solo Farming

¡¤With one button press, this will target a nearby enemy if one isn't already selected, send your pet on it, cast Hunter's Mark, and then turn on auto attack / auto shot.

Smart Ammo

/equip Sharp Arrow
/cast Steady Shot
/equip Wicked Arrow
¡¤Use cheaper arrows for attacks that do not make use of their bonus damage.

Misdirection On Predefined Targets
