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 Holy Priest (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 Priests

1.1.1. Leap of Faith Mouseover Macro

  • /cast [target=mouseover,help,nodead][]Leap of Faith

This macro will cast Leap of Faith Icon Leap of Faith on the target your are currently mousing over, if it is a friendly target and not dead. Otherwise, it will cast Leap of Faith on your current target.

1.2. Specific Macros for Holy Priests Priests

While we do not recommend any specific macro for Holy Priests, we do highly suggest that all of your heals, as well as other spells that can be cast on raid members (such as Guardian Spirit Icon Guardian Spirit) be incorporated into mouseover macros. This will allow you to much more easily cast them on raid members.

Here is an example of a mouseover macro. Simply replace Heal Icon Heal with the name of the spell you want to use:

  • #showtooltip Heal
  • /cast [target=mouseover,help,nodead][]Heal

This will cast Heal on your mouseover target, if it is a friendly target and it is not dead. Otherwise, it will cast heal on your current target.

2. Addons↑top

2.1. Generic Addons for Priests

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. 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.

2.1.3. 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. 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.

2.2. Specific Addons for Holy Priests

2.2.1. Lightwell Buddy

Lightwell Buddy is a small, useful addon that sends customisable reminders to your raid members whenever a Lightwell is present, encouraging them to click it. This addon can help ensure that Lightwells do not go to waste because many players are not in the habit of using them.
