For your Interface I would recommend using Weakauras and Bigwigs.

Weakauras will give you the opportunity to import a lot of helpful visuals/alerts/timers to keep track of your cooldowns, buffs and debuffs.

BigWigs for having a boss mod helping you to plan your cooldowns ahead of time and be prepared for certain abilities that are about to happen.


Here are some useful Hunter macros everyone should have:

Aspect of the Turtle Cancel Macro

You can cancel Aspect of the Turtle by pressing it a second time but it has a small delay in case you click it too many times in a short period of time. This macro removes that delay so use carefully.

/cancelaura Aspect of the Turtle
/cast Aspect of the Turtle

Misdirection Mouseover/Focus Macro

Misdirection is an important ability in Dungeons but also in Raids: This macro will cast Misdirection on the target you are currently mousing over. Otherwise it will cast on your Focus target.

#showtooltip Misdirection

Party Leader Misdirection Macro

This macro will cast Misdirection on Party Leader.

#showtooltip Misdirection/cast [target=party1] Misdirection

Spirit Mend heal Mouseover Macro

/cast [@mouseover] [pet:Spirit Beast] Spirit Mend

Spell & Pet Attack Macro


The auto-cast system from blizzard is super slow on pets and you might miss out, so make sure to use this macro.

Another important topic is the pet attacks. You should macro them into all of your abilities when you're using a pet to guarantee the pet will use them on cooldown and not miss out on damage.

Here is one example for Barbed Shot. It is recommended to macro these into every important ability while using a pet.

/use Barbed Shot
/use Smack(Basic Attack)
/use Bite(Basic Attack)
/use Claw(Basic Attack)


Having good weakauras can really help you out a lot with keeping track of all the important stuff.

The best is just to find weakauras fitting your own interface preferences and play style. has a huge collection for Hunter:
