Updates will be made after raid progress is finished and more accurate information is available.

Interface

I like emphasising key information like Clearcasting by having big icon auras by using the WeakAuras Addon.

Macros

Pop Everything Macro

Pretty useful to just macro everything in 1 bind to avoid spending time in AP to press berserking etc.

#showtooltip Arcane Power
/cast Arcane Power
/use Manifesto of Madness
/cast Berserking
/use Malformed Herald's Legwraps

Iceblock Cancel Macro

/cancelaura Ice Block
/use Ice Block

Yes in that order is how I have it. Lets you instantly cancel the ice block when spamming the button (faster than GCD). Good for removing DoTs, immune damage last second etc. You can still sit in the block like normally with this macro.

Focus Mouseover Macro

/focus [target=mouseover]

You can focus gateways with this macro and then use a key bind to use the gateway without clicking.

Go into your Settings > Keybinds > Targeting and set a key for "Interact With Mouseover".

Focus Interrupt Macro

#showtooltip
/cast [target=focus, exists, harm, nodead] Counterspell; Counterspell

If you use the focus macro above, you can use this macro to interrupt the focus target. 

I recommend having a separate bind for the focus interrupt.

Weakauras

You can find almost anything you want here https://wago.io/weakauras/classes/mage/arcane.

Here are a few specific auras that I recommend:
