Push Subtlety Rogue UI
Tricks of the Trade mouseover
I use this instead of a focus macro because of its flexibility.
#showtooltip Tricks of the Trade
/cast [@mouseover, help, nodead][help,nodead][@player,help,nodead]Tricks of the Trade
Shadow Dance + Shadowstrike macro
Used to avoid casting Backstab as first GCD in Shadow Dance, there is an unfortunate stance delay that has plagued Subtlety for years; this macro solves that issue.
/cast [stance:0] Shadow Dance;Shadowstrike
Equip Edge of Night macro
Used for the weapon swap when the boss has below 50% hp. Only relevant if you have 2x Mythic Edge of Night daggers.
/equipslot 16 Edge of Night
Sepsis + Shadow Blades
If you play Night Fae, you want to make sure every Sepsis is covered by Shadow Blades (if possible). Therefore this macro makes a lot of sense, sort of a “Swifty” macro for Sepsis. The trinket is included because it also gains a lot of damage from your haste when playing Dreamweaver and pressing Sepsis. So you want to line them all up if possible.
/cast Shadow Blades
AoE button keybind
I use this to create a keybind for both of our AoE talent abilities, saving you some time.
/cast [talent:7/2] Secret Technique
/cast [talent:7/3] Shuriken Tornado
Used as a lazy way to avoid having to change your on-use trinket macro every time you swap to another trinket.
Standalone Weakauras to consider:
- Melee uptime tracker: https://controlc.com/c60e8c74
- Shadow Techniques tracker by Plode: https://wago.io/K1kaQkSDI
Melee uptime is very important for any melee DPS, especially for Subtlety, since it gains resources from auto-attacks. I used this melee uptime tracker to ensure I was in range of the Spiked Balls on Painsmith while keeping max distance to avoid getting run over. But I decided to keep it around because it was very neat on other bosses as well.
As a new Subtlety player, you probably won’t pay much attention to the Shadow Technique tracker. But as you get more used to the spec, it becomes very helpful.
