Written by Meeres Last Updated: 20th Apr, 2019

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:

You're unable to cast spells while being in Aspect of the Turtle so it might be useful to cancel it sometimes.

/cancelaura Aspect of the Turtle

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

IT'S IMPORTANT FOR BM HUNTERS TO USE THIS MACRO FOR EVERY OFFENSIVE SPELL

The auto-cast system in the game is super slow on pets and you might miss out make sure to use this macro.

Another important topic is the pet attacks, you should macro them into all of your abilities when your 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.

#showtooltip
/use Multi-Shot
/use Smack(Basic Attack)
/use Bite(Basic Attack)
/use Claw(Basic Attack)

Weakauras

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

The best is just to find the best weakauras fitting your own interface and playstyle.
