Discipline Priest Macros for Cataclysm

Macros are useful ways to bind several actions to one key or quickbar slot. Any class has an infinite variety of ways they could bind spells, actions, or alerts, but I thought it would be useful to share the few macros I use as a discipline priest in Cataclysm.

To use the following macros, load your character in WoW and hit ‘Esc’. Chose ‘Macros’ from the menu, select ‘New’ and paste the code for each macro into the empty space below the icon. Choose a nifty icon, name it, hit save and drag the icon to your quickbar. Done!

If anyone would like to share their own useful disc healing macros in the comments, please feel free!

Power Word: Fortitude +  Shadow Protection +  Buff All:

Inner Will + Alert

/showtooltip Buff All
/tar self
/cast Inner Will
/say Priest buffs applied.

Buff your group and yourself and announce that you have done so. Works in party, raid, or all by your lonesome.

Free Greater Heal:

Inner Focus + Greater Heal

/showtooltip  Free Greater Heal
/cast Inner Focus
/cast Greater Heal

Casts Inner Focus, which decreases the mana cost of your next Greater Heal, Prayer of Healing, or to zero, and then casts Greater Heal on your target.

Self Infusion:

Target Self + Power Infusion

/showtooltip Self Infusion
/tar self
/cast Power Infusion

Casts Power Infusion on yourself to speed your spell cast time and reduce mana cost.

Raidwide Damage Redux:

Power Infusion + Divine Hymn

/showtooltip Raidwide Damage
/tar self
/cast Power Infusion
/cast Divine Hymn

Casts Power Infusion on yourself, speeding the cast time and reducing the mana cost of your Divine Hymn. Good followed with a Prayer of Healing.

Possible Addition:

Inner Focus + Prayer of Healing

/showtooltip Raidwide Damage Plus
/cast Inner Focus
/cast Prayer of Healing

Casts Inner Focus- if it’s not on cooldown- with Prayer of Healing, to make PoH free.

 

Improved Shadowfiend

Acquire Target + Shadowfiend

/showtooltip Improved Shadowfiend
/cast [nopet,harm][nopet,target=targettarget,harm]Shadowfiend
/petattack [harm][target=targettarget,harm]
/petaggressive
/cast [harm][target=targettarget,harm]Shadowcrawl

Summons a Shadowfiend  and makes him aggressive. If a Shadowfiend is already out, it casts Shadowcrawl.

Heal ALL The Things!:

Barrier + Alert + Power Infusion +   Prayer of Healing

#showtooltip Big Barrier Heal
/cast Power Word: Barrier

Next macro:
/raid DPS: Please get under the yellow dome now.
/tar self
/cast Power Infusion
/cast Prayer of Healing

Casts a Barrier, alerts all the DPS to stand inside of it, casts Power Infusion on yourself for speed and reduced costs, and then casts Prayer of Healing on everyone in your party. Be sure you’re in the party with your DPS for this to work as advertised!

Polite Priesting:

Alert + Hymn of Hope

/showtooltip Hymn of Hope Plus
/tar self
/raid Casting mana regen. Mana users, please within 10 yards of %t.
/cast Hymn of Hope

Alerts the raid that you’re about to cast Hymn of Hope to regen mana for everyone within 10 yards of you, then casts HoH.

Resurrection Alert:

Resurrection +  Alert

/showtooltip Resurrection
/y Incoming resurrection on %t.
/cast Resurrection

Casts Resurrection on your target and announces you are doing so in a yell.

Bonus Macro!

Super Suppression:

Target your tank + Pain Suppression + Alert

#showtooltip Super Suppression – YOURTANKNAMEHERE
/tar YOURTANKNAMEHERE
/cast Pain Suppression
/raid Pain Suppression on %t.

This one requires a little customization but is well worth the effort. If you regularly heal a particular tank, put their character name into the macro wherever you see YOURTANKNAMEHERE. The macro will then target your tank, cast Pain Suppression on her (reducing her damage by 40% for 8 seconds) and announce it to your raid.

Useful Sites For Macro Creation:

For some reason, macro sites  are dominated by an unbelievable number of junk sites with viruses and the like. Please use caution when searching for macros on the interwebs.

    I think I had most of those which is satisfying, my only suggestion is to use @target more often :)

    Is there a reason you’re actually targeting yourself in a lot of the macros? Is it so the target switches just for the proceeding spells?

    E.g. I would do this instead:


    #showtooltip
    /cast [@player] Hymn of Hope
    /raid Casting mana regen. Mana users, please within 10 yards of %p. <-- not sure if this works :/ cant test now

  2. Upyursh says:

    Oh also you can do things like this I think so you’re not editing Tank names etc :) :


    /tar [@mouseover]

    I’d recommend this site decrypting macros and helping to edit/create new ones.

    Great list! :D

    One that I like for “getting the whole picture” is:

    /console cameraDistanceMaxFactor 40

    I used to type it upon zoning into an instance and finally macro’ed it to my buffs. Lets you zoom waaaaaay out to be able to see stuff better :) Unfortunately it doesn’t help in tight instances like SFK or Deadmines :/

  5. Hi wow 300 website has been moved to wow300.co.cc :P

    Hi thanks for the help :) Started me off as a macro user xD

    Im just having a bit of difficulty with the Instant cast Greater heal. Ive copied it letter for letter, however i still get a cast time on the heal? Any help with this please? Thanks in advance

    • Slimmytimmy says:

      sorry, ive been stupid and not checked the new update >.< now the ifocus doesnt make it an instant cast as of the new update. My mistake! sorry :3

      • You beat me to it; sadly, the changes in Mists mean that many of these will not function correctly. I’m looking forward to writing a brand-new macros post specifically for the expansion, though!

  7. Need help on this /castsequence reset=target PW: Shield,
    Renew When I’m pressing Alt it won’t cast it on me. Is there way to
    edit this macro so it can support Alt button so I can cast this on
    me to ?

  8. Diego Mejia says:

    disculpen pero no me sirven los macros especificados al inicio: /showtooltip Buff All
    /tar self
    /cast Inner Will
    /say Priest buffs applied.
