WOW Rogue Macros,Shadowstep Premeditation Macro

I posted this before but the post was too complicated so i'll simplify. Here are some macros to makes switching between daggers and swords a no brainer. Since going shadow step makes your backstab and ambush potentially hit harder, it would be nice to be able to mix them in seemlessly like druids can. Check my armory for the build.

MAKE sure ambush is where your HEMO button is. Also make sure you replace the buttons on your UI with the actual macro.... OR IT WON'T WORK AT ALL. Also make sure if you are trying to do a shadowstep ambush backstab that you have the shadowstep macro NOT on your stealth bar. It only works if you mash it.


#showtooltip Ambush
/cast premeditation
/cast [stealth] Ambush; Backstab
/equipslot [stealth] 16 INSERT YOUR DAGGER NAME HERE

Here is your Hemo macro:

#showtooltip Hemorrhage
/startattack
/cast [equipped:Daggers] Backstab(); Hemorrhage()
/equipslot 16 INSERT YOUR SWORD NAME HERE

Shadowstep ambush backstab macro.

#showtooltip Shadowstep
/cast Premeditation
/cast Shadowstep
/cast [stealth] Ambush; Backstab
/equipslot [stealth] 16 INSERT YOUR DAGGER NAME HERE

And in case you ever wanna just cast backstab but you have a sword equipped...

#showtooltip Backstab
/startattack
/cast Backstab
/equipslot 16 INSERT YOUR DAGGER NAME HERE

Rogue Macros

Riposte/SS
/castrandom Sinister Strike, Riposte

.A very ghetto way to bypass the restrictions. You have to mash this non-stop and it works fine.

Dismount -> Mashable Stealth(tries to Cheap Shot if you mash it in stealth)
/cast [nomounted, nostealth] Stealth; [nomounted] Cheap Shot
/use [mounted] Swift White Steed

.Nothing fancy, replace ¡°Swift White Steed¡± with your own mount name.

Expose Armor without breaking gouge/sap/blind
/equip Bow of Love
/cast Expose Armor
/stopattack

.Change ¡°Bow of Love¡± to your actual ranged weapon of course

Cheap Shot without breaking gouge/sap/blind
/equip Bow of Love
/cast Cheap Shot
/stopattack

One Button Press Cold Blood -> Eviscerate
/cast Cold Blood
/stopcasting
/cast Eviscerate

Start autoattacking automatically before casting special
/startattack
/cast Backstab

Activate A Trinket & Cast Evasion + Adrenaline Rush + Blade Flurry
/use 13
/castsequence Evasion, Adrenaline Rush, Blade Flurry

.13 is top trinket slot, 14 is bottom. If Evasion is not up, Adrenaline Rush & Blade Flurry will not come out. There is no way to bypass this at the moment, unless you want to /castrandom and get those abilities out randomly.

Premed/CS in One Button Press Without Global Cooldown
/cast Premeditation
/stopcasting
/cast Cheap Shot

Ghost Strike/Hemo
/castsequence reset=6 ghostly strike, hemorrhage, hemorrhage, hemorrhage, hemorrhage, hemorrhage

.5 hemos for every ghost strike is plenty. This for me works better than /castrandom Ghost Strike, Hemorrhage, you can try both versions and see which one you prefer.

Ghost Strike/Hemo #2
/castsequence reset=20 ghostly strike,Hemorrhage(Rank 3), Hemorrhage(Rank 3),Hemorrhage(Rank 3),Hemorrhage(Rank 3),Hemorrhage(Rank 3),Hemorrhage(Rank 3),Hemorrhage(Rank 3),Hemorrhage(Rank 3),Hemorrhage(Rank 3),Hemorrhage(Rank 3),Hemorrhage(Rank 3)

Mashable Stealth
/cast [nostealth] Stealth

Stealth if not in combat, else Vanish (mashable)
/cast [combat] Vanish; [nostealth] Stealth

Cast Shadowmeld if Stealth is on Cooldown
/cast Stealth()
/script CastShapeshiftForm(1);
/script if not(string.find(GetShapeshiftFormInfo(1), ¡°Invis¡± )) then CastSpellByName(¡±Shadowmeld(Racial)¡±); end


Ambush if Stealthed else Backstab
/cast [stealth] Ambush; Backstab

Equip Dagger and Ambush
/equipslot [stealth,noequipped:Daggers] 17 Dagger of Pwnage
/cast [stealth,equipped:Daggers] Ambush

Apply Poisons
With this macro, you can left click to poison your main hand, right click to poison your offhand, hold down the alt button when you do it to use crippling poison or the ctrl button to use mind-numbing.

/use [nomodifier] Instant Poison IV; [modifier:alt] Crippling Poison II; [modifier:ctrl] Mind-numbing Poison III /use [button:1] 16; [button:2] 17

As an alternative to the one above, this one contains all six kinds of poisons that rogues have. This one will also always use the highest rank available.

/use [modifier:ctrl,modifier:shift] Anesthetic Poison;[modifier:ctrl,modifier:alt] Deadly Poison; [modifier:alt] Crippling Poison;[modifier:ctrl] Mind-numbing Poison;[modifier:shift] Wound Poison;Instant Poison /use [button:1] 16; [button:2] 17

Blind Mouseover
/cast [target=mouseover] Blind

Super Preparation
Burn all your preparable abilities before using Preparation. Since you're going to be resetting all the CDs anyway, you might as well dodge a little more and move faster for a little bit.

/cast Evasion
/stopcasting
/cast Sprint
/stopcasting
/cast Preparation

Stealth => Shadowstep => Premeditation => Ambush => Hemorrage
Stealths if not stealthed and not in combat. Shadowstep and apply Premed if its up. Ambush. Hemorrhage spam during combat. Great with the new Shadowstep.. can be a bugger when attempting on a moving mounted foe.

/cast [nostealth] stealth
/cast [stealth] Shadowstep
/cast [stealth] Premeditation
/cast [stealth] Ambush
/cast [combat] Hemorrhage

Pick Pocket + Ambush
If you are stealthed and use this macro it will Pick Pocket your mob netting you a few extra silver and the occassional Locked Box. You should(!) enable Autoloot in your Interface-Menu. Instead of Ambush you can use every other Opener of course.

/cast Pick Pocket /stopcasting /cast Ambush

Equip throwing weapon + Deadly Throw
This macro will equip your throwing weapon & cast Deadly Throw (requires two button presses, about a 1 second delay due to global cooldown). Handy if you want to keep a bow/gun/crossbow equipped due to better stats.

/equipslot [noequipped:Thrown] 18 My Thrown Weapon
/cast [equipped:Thrown] Deadly Throw
Deadly Throw + Throw (1-button ranged attack)
It'll use deadly throw if you have the combo points, otherwise it'll just throw/shoot.

/cast Deadly Throw
/cast [equipped:Thrown] Throw; Shoot

Sap + Pick Pocket
Needs Improved Sap talent and Autoloot option.

WARNING: There is a small chance that your sap misses AND your pickpocket gets resisted!

Almost guaranteed pick pocket even in laggy situations and on moving mobs, I use this a lot when roaming around and pick pocketing random humanoids. It has its obvious weakness in world PvP though, your enemy can easily know you're there :)

/cast Sap
/stopcasting
/cast Pick Pocket

Gouge => Bandage
Automatically Gouges the target and begins bandaging yourself. Be warned that if your Gouge fails, this will still expend a bandage. Replace Netherweave Bandage with the name of whatever bandage you wish to use with this macro.

/cast Gouge
/stopcasting
/cast [target=player] <Netherweave Bandage>
