Macros and addons are an integral part of a raider's arsenal as they canmake it easier to perform a variety of tasks, improving your overall gameexperience. On this page, we present macros and addons that can be useful to anArms Warrior in World of Warcraft MoP 5.4.
The other pages of our Arms Warrior guide can be accessedfrom the table of contents on the right.
1.1. Generic Macros for Warriors
1.1.1. Bladestorm Cancelaura Macro
This macro allows you to easily cancel your Bladestorm before its 6second duration expires. This is sometimes necessary, because while Bladestormis active you cannot cast any of your other abilities. It is especially usefulif you begin Bladestorming when there are multiple enemies alive who then dievery quickly.
1.2. Specific Macros for Arms Warriors
1.2.1. Bloodbath + Synapse Springs + Dragon Roar
This macro can be used in most (but not all) situations to efficiently useyour three 1-minute cooldowns, if you are an engineer. It should be usedimmediately before using Colossus Smash, so that you get the extra damagefrom Bloodbath during Colossus Smash. Dragon Roar ignores armoralready, so it does not lose anything by being used outside of ColossusSmash.
1.2.2. Heroic Leap Spam
This allows you to spam the Heroic Leap button, but still retain theground-targeting circle.
1.2.3. Cooldown Stacking Macro
Also called a Swifty macro (after the player who popularised it),this allows you to use all your offensive cooldowns with the press of abutton.
2.1. Generic Addons for Warriors
Here, at Icy Veins, we useElvUIfor all our characters. This addon is a complete replacement of the defaultUser Interface. It comes with almost everything you need to perform properly:action bars, cooldown timers, proc display, etc.
We strongly recommend that you get this addon.
2.1.2. Boss Mods: Deadly Boss Mods or Bigwigs
Boss mods are addons that warn you about boss abilities and give youlive advice on how to handle some mechanics. We strongly recommend you toget one such addon. At Icy Veins, we mostly useDeadly Boss Mods,the most popular boss mod. A good alternative isBig Wigs.
GTFO is a lightweightaddon that notifies you when you are standing in harmful effects or when youare making other such mistakes. It is very useful, even if your boss mod isalready alerting you of such things.
2.1.4. Parrot or Mik's Scrolling Battle Text
Parrot andMik's Scrolling Battle Text are highlycustomisable addons for displaying floating battle text while in combat (incomingheals, damage of your spells, etc.). They both work very well by default.
2.1.5. Weak Auras
WeakAuras is anextremely useful addon that allows you to have visual effects on your screen,helping you track your buffs, debuffs and cooldowns. It is highly customisableand it can make it much, much easier to keep track of your procs and play yourspec more proficiently. It can also be used for a variety of otherfunctions.
TellMeWhen is anextremely useful addon with a user-friendly interface that allows you to tracka multitude of things, from internal cooldowns, to buffs, debuffs, andprocs.
2.1.7. Raeli's Spell Announcer
Raeli's Spell Announceris an extremely useful addon that allows you to send announcements whenever youuse certain spells. It is of particular use to announce when you use raidcooldowns or other important abilities.
Recount is awell known addon that most people use for displaying current DPS or HPS(Healing Per Second). We advise you to also use it for checking what youtake damage from and if the share of damage/healing you do with each of yourabilities is similar to that of other players of your class.
A lightweight alternative to Recount is Skada Damage Meter.
2.1.9. Omen Threat Meter
Omen Threat Meteris the most popular addon for displaying the current threat levels on yourtarget. We recommend you to use it to avoid taking aggro when the tank is still buildingup threat on an enemy.
2.2. Specific Addons for Arms Warriors
Currently, we feel that there is no need for additional addons to play anArms Warrior to its full potential.
