Macros

Note - you should place a @cursor Modifier into your macro whenever you want an ability to be placed at your cursor location as soon as you press the keybind, makes the gameplay feel smoother. Additionally, you can also do this for @mouseover an example being the macro below.

Raise Ally Mouseover Macro

Allows you to mouseover resurrect someone without clicking on them.

#showtooltip Raise Ally
/cast [@mouseover,help][@target]Raise Ally

Gorefiend’s Grasp Mouseover/Player Macro

Just makes the ability easier to use.

#showtooltip Gorefiend's Grasp
/cast [@mouseover,exists,nodead][@player] Gorefiend's Grasp

Death and Decay Cursor/Player Macro

If you press Ctrl(Can be changed to whatever you want) it will place the ability at your cursor otherwise it will default to your character.

#showtooltip Death and Decay
#show Death and Decay
/cast [mod:ctrl, @cursor] Death and Decay; [@player] Death and Decay

Weakauras

Death Strike Tracker

A simple Death Strike tracker such as this https://wago.io/WwF0xP7fu is a nice addition to have as it tells you how valuable your next Death Strike will be.

Raise Dead Tracker

This will allow you to maximise your Raise Dead as you can cast a Sacrificial Pact at the very end which will add a bit more damage to each cast of Raise Dead: https://wago.io/XudmTWwMf

General Package which includes Rune tracking and Runic Power tracking: https://wago.io/b4F59thT_/3

You can modify and customise this as much as you’d like and it covers all 3 of the specs: https://wago.io/H1jZ1-dNQ
