Assassination Rogue Art Image

Macros and addons are an integral part of a raider's arsenal as they can make it easier to perform a variety of tasks, improving your overall game experience. Below, we present macros and addons that can be useful to an Assassination Rogue (WoW 4.3). On the left side, you will find links to the other parts of the guide.

1. Macros↑top

1.1. Generic Macros for Rogues

1.1.1. Tricks of the Trade

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast [@mouseover] Tricks of the Trade

This macro will cast Tricks of the Trade Icon Tricks of the Trade on your mouse over target.

1.2. Specific Macros for Assassination Rogues

1.2.1. Envenom and Cold Blood

  • #showtooltip Envenom
  • /cast Cold Blood
  • /cast Envenom

This macro can be used to replace Envenom Icon Envenom on your cast bar. It enables you to relinquish control over Cold Blood Icon Cold Blood and turn it into a sort of passive proc.

1.2.2. Cooldowns

  • #showtooltip
  • /cast Vendetta
  • /cast Cold Blood

This macro will cast your main cooldowns at once. It is best to use it when Overkill Icon Overkill is active.

For maximum effects, we advise you to add, at the end of the macro, /use 13, /use 14 (for your on-use trinkets), and/or /use Potion of the Tol'vir. You can also add your racial trait (Berserking Icon Berserking for Trolls, for example) or Synapse Springs (/use 10) if you are an Engineer.

1.3. Generic Addons for Rogues

1.3.1. ElvUI

Here, at Icy Veins, we use ElvUI for all our characters. This addon is a complete replacement of the default User Interface. It comes with almost everything you need to perform properly: action bars, cooldown timers, proc display, etc.

We strongly recommend you to get this addon.

1.3.2. Boss Mods: Deadly Boss Mods or Bigwigs

Boss mods are addons that warn you about boss abilities and give you live advice on how to handle some mechanics. We strongly recommend you to get one such addon. At Icy Veins, we mostly use Deadly Boss Mods, the most popular boss mod. A good alternative is Big Wigs.

1.3.3. Omen Threat Meter

Omen Threat Meter is the most popular addon for displaying the current threat levels on your target. We recommend you to use it to avoid taking aggro when the tank is still building up threat on an enemy.

1.3.4. Parrot or Mik's Scrolling Battle Text

Parrot and Mik's Scrolling Battle Text are highly customisable addons for displaying floating battle text while in combat (incoming heals, damage of your spells, etc.). They both work very well by default.

1.3.5. Recount

Recount is a well known addon that most people use for displaying current DPS or HPS (Healing Per Second). We advise you to also use it for checking what you take damage from and if the share of damage/healing you do with each of your abilities is similar to that of other players of your class.

1.4. Specific Addons for Assassination Rogues

Currently, we feel that there is no need for additional addons to play an Assassination Rogue to its full potential.
