Having a good User Interface is key to performing at a top level. Everyone should build their UI around their own needs. Think about what you want to see and don’t just copy someone’s Interface.

Here are some Add-On recommendations that everyone should consider:

  • Weak Auras 2: Great Add-on to track every kind of buff & debuff in the game that basically every top-raider uses.
  • BigWigs/LittleWigs: BigWigs is a great BossMod that is easy to setup and very customizable. It usually is the most up-to-date BossMod. LittleWigs does basically the same for dungeons.
  • Classtimer: Classtimer is a great Add-On to track your DoTs. It is very easy to setup and fulfills all your needs. There are some other good options like Gnosis or Weak Auras 2 out there too.
  • Plater: Good nameplates are really important for every class and even more for DoT-classes. Plater is one of the more popular Nameplate Add-On choices. However there are some other good ones like KuiNameplates or TidyPlates.

If you are more the lazy type and don’t want to build your own User Interface I can highly recommend ElvUI. It has a lot of options and is also aesthetically very pleasing.


Shadowfury Cursor Macro:

Using this macro makes your Shadowfury go on your cursor without placing the circle. This can be used for many other abilities like Rain of Fire.

/cast [@cursor] Shadowfury

Spell Lock Macro:

Spell Lock cast macro. This macro is important because the Command Demon ability is often bugging out.

/cast Spell Lock

Spell Lock Focus Macro:

This macro will interrupt your focus target with Spell Lock. It requires a focus target beforehand.

/cast [@focus] Spell Lock


There is a lot of great Weak Auras out that can be found on I went ahead and searched for some good packages that people can use if they’re not good at creating their own Weak Auras.

Not’s Weak Auras -

Ipse’s Weak Auras -

I can also highly recommend getting the Soulstone Reminder ( from Nnogga. It will always tell you to put your Soulstone on a healer. Only works in a Guild Raid though.
