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 a Destruction Warlock. On the left side, you will find links to the other parts of the guide.

1. Macros↑top

1.1. Generic Macros for Warlocks

1.1.1. Soulstone Mouseover Macro

  • #showtooltip Create Soulstone
  • /cast [target=mouseover] Create Soulstone

This macro allows you to cast 6Create Soulstone Icon Create Soulstone on a raid or party member by simply hovering the mouse over their unit or raid frame.

1.2. Specific Macros for Destruction Warlocks

1.2.1. Singe Magic Macro

  • #showtooltip Singe Magic
  • /cast [target=mouseover,exists,nodead,help][target=player]Singe Magic

This macro allows you to cast your Imp's Singe Magic Icon Singe Magic (dispelling 1 harmful magic effect) on the target you are currently mousing over. If you are not mousing over a viable target, it will instead attempt to cast Singe Magic on you.

2. Addons↑top

2.1. Generic Addons for Warlocks

2.1.1. 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.

2.1.2. 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.

2.1.3. Power Auras Classic

Power Auras Classic is an extremely useful addon that allows you to have visual effects on your screen, helping you track your buffs, debuffs and cooldowns. It is highly customisable and it can make it much, much easier to keep track of your procs and play your spec more proficiently.

2.1.4. 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.

2.1.5. 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.

2.1.6. 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.

2.1.7. Grid and GridClickSets (Optional)

ElvUI comes with decent raid frames. The only real reason for using Grid and GridClickSets is if you want to be able to use 6Create Soulstone Icon Create Soulstone on raid or party members by mousing over their raid frame. If you choose to go with Grid, then you might want to also use GridStatusRaidDebuff.

2.2. Specific Addons for Destruction Warlocks

Currently, we feel that there is no need for additional addons to play a Destruction Warlock to its full potential.
