Macros & Addons
Here is a list of helpful Blood DK macros.
Every DK worth their salt should have and use these target and focus-interrupt macros, as follows:
/cast Mind Freeze
/cast Mind Freeze; Mind Freeze
If you are comfortable using modifiers (alt, shift, and ctrl), try the following macro, which will
your focus if you hold alt, and
your target otherwise:
#showtooltip Raise Ally
/cast Raise Ally
This casts Raise Ally on mouseover, removing the need to click the target.
#showtooltip Gorefiend's Grasp
/cast Gorefiend's Grasp; Gorefiend's Grasp
This allows you to cast
on either yourself or your target. Holding alt while pressing the hotkey will target yourself, otherwise it will target your target. You can replace "ctrl" with "alt" or "shift" to change the modifier key.
Every tank should have a macro to mark their target with Skull, so that dungeon groups can focus enemies down in order:

Blood Shield Tracker is an addon made specifically for Blood DKs. It predicts the value of future Blood Shield based on damage taken, gives the current value of your Blood Shield, as well as tracking many other useful things such as
, and procs.
Weak Auras 2 is infinitely customizable and can track virtually everything in-game that you can possibly think of, and a lot more. Use it!
ElvUI is a complete UI overhaul mod that, among many other things, features informational nameplates that change size, shape, and color based upon your threat.
Tidyplates, for those who do not use ElvUI, is helpful for customizing nameplates to provide more information about mob activity, such as threat state.
Deadly Boss Mods / Big Wigs provide information about when bosses will cast abilities, when phases will end, etc., which is vital in dungeons, raids, and against world bosses.
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 on Wowhead
WeakAuras is a handy addon that flashes a useful alert onto your screen related to important abilities--cooldowns, durations, etc. However, it can be tricky to configure especially if you're new to it, so we've set up basic Weak Aura customizations for every player spell, including intelligent default auras.
Just visit a spell page (
) and click on the red "WeakAuras Export" button to open the panel up. Click "Copy" for our default aura, or "Customize" to easily change your alerts!
