Interface

For your Interface I would recommend using Weakauras and Bigwigs.

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

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

Macros

Here are some useful Hunter macros everyone should have:

Trueshot, Trinket & Berserking Macro

If you have a trinket which cooldown lines up perfectly with Trueshot, you use both at the same time. This just gives an extra action bar slot for anything you want. In case the trinket is out of cd and Trueshot is not, you just press the macro to use the trinket.

/cast trueshot
/use Berserking
/use 13 or 14 ( Trinket slots)

Aspect of the Turtle Cancel Aura

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.

#showtooltip
/cancelaura Aspect of the Turtle
/cast Aspect of the Turtle

Misdirection Mouseover or 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
/use[@mouseover,help,nodead][@focus,help,nodead]Misdirection

Party Leader Misdirection Macro

This macro will cast Misdirection on the Party Leader.

#showtooltip
/cast [target=party1] Misdirection

No channeling macros

#showtooltip Aimed Shot
/use [nochanneling:rapid fire] Aimed Shot
/cancelaura Aspect of the turtle

This has to be put in every spell that you might cast after Rapid Fire, like Aimed Shot, Multi-Shot, Arcane Shot and Steady Shot. It prevents you from clipping Rapid Fire. You can then spam these abilities even while channeling Rapid Fire without breaking Rapid Fire that has a longer channel duration than the actual GCD.

Cursor macros for Volley and Steal trap

Volley

#showtooltip Volley
/cast [@cursor] Volley; Volley
Steal trap
#showtooltip
/cast [@cursor] Steel Trap

Allows you to instantly use Steel Trap or Volley where the cursor is.

Weakauras

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

The best thing to do is to find weakauras fitting your own interface preferences and play style.
