Shaman macros - Patch 6.0.3

Here you'll be able to find useful and interesting macros for Shamans in patch 6.0.3.
The macros are separated in categories , so it'll be easier to find a macro for your spec.

General Shaman Macros:
Wind Shear macro:
/cast [@focus,exists][@target] Wind Shear

This macro casts Wind Shear Icon Wind Shear at your focus, if you have one. Otherwise, Wind Shear is cast at your current target.

Purge macro:
/cast [@focus,exists][@target] Purge

This macro for Purge Icon Purge works in the same way as the above macro for Wind Shear Icon Wind Shear.

Hex macro:
#showtooltip Hex
/clearfocus [modifier:alt]
/focus [@focus,noexists]
/cast [@focus,exists][@target,exists] Hex
/y Casting Hex on %F

This macro casts Hex Icon Hex on your focus or your current target. The first time you use this macro, the focus is set on your current target (if it is an enemy). Subsequent uses of the macro will keep casting Hex on your focus, unless you press alt (or whatever modifier you specify in the second line of the macro), in which case, the macro will set the focus on your current target before casting Hex on it.

Enhancement Shaman
 Spirit Wolves macro:
/cast Feral Spirit
/cast Spirit Walk

Press the Macro one for Feral Spirit, then a second time for Spirit Walk. Really easy way to save on some keybindings, but it sucks that we need a Macro for this now.

  Quick Enchants macro:
/use [nomod] Windfury Weapon;
[mod:ctrl] Rockbiter Weapon;
[mod:shift] Flametongue Weapon;
[mod:alt] Frostbrand Weapon

Use the above modifiers when applying all of your weapon enchants. After awhile you will of got used to using the Macro, so remembering the modifiers won’t be a problem.

  Purge/Cleanse Spirit macro: 
/cast [no mod, help] Cleanse Spirit
/cast [no mod, harm] Purge
/cast [mod:shift,@focus] Purge
/cast [mod:alt,@player] Cleanse Spirit

Hold shift to Purge focused target. Hold alt to Cleanse yourself. If no modifier is used, you will Purge current enemy target or Cleanse current friendly target.

  Stormstrike macro:
/cast Stormstrike
/startattack [harm]

This will cast Stormstrike whenever it’s off cooldown. If it’s on cooldown, you will just auto attack. Now you can just spam Stormstrike. Plus it saves you a slot on your actionbar. Of course that’s if you still have auto attack on your actionbar. 

Restoration Shaman
Healing Mouseovers macro:
/cast [@mouseover] Chain Heal

This is just a example of how to make a mouseover for your main healing abilities. Just replace Chain Heal with whatever spell you want. Imo once you get used to it, it’s the easiest way to heal for raiding.

  Ancestral Swiftness macro:
Chain Heal
/cast Ancestral Swiftness
/cast [@mouseover] Chain Heal

This is exactly like the last one, but makes the ability a instant cast. I would just get a feel of what spells you’re using most with Ancestral Swiftness, then start making Macros like this for them.

  Focused Wind Shear macro:
/cast [no mod, help]
/cast [target=focus , exists] Wind Shear
/cast Wind Shear

This stops whatever you’re casting and Wind Shears your focused target. If you have nobody on focus, it interupts your current target. Really great Macro for Arena.

  Shaman Shields macro:
/cast [modifier:shift] ; Lighting Shield
[modifier:alt] Water Shield; Earth Shield

Press the Macro normally for a Earth Shield or hold down alt for Water Shield, and shift for Lightning Shield. I normally use this for PvP, but I could see this being very helpful while raiding. 

Elemental Shaman
Ancestral Swiftness and Lightning Bolt macro:
#showtooltip Lightning Bolt
/cast Ancestral Swiftness
/cast Lightning Bolt

If you chose Ancestral Swiftness Icon Ancestral Swiftness as a Tier 4 talent, this macro will grant you an instant-cast Lightning Bolt Icon Lightning Bolt every minute. You can also use Ancestral Swiftness with Chain Lightning Icon Chain Lightning in AoE situations. In this case, simply replace Lightning Bolt with Chain Lightning in the macro.

Searing Totem with Primal Elementalist macro:
If you are using Primal Elementalist Icon Primal Elementalist as your Tier 6 talent, you can use the following macro for Searing Totem Icon Searing Totem to make sure that you are not putting it down while your Primal Fire Elemental is up.

/cast [nopet:Primal Fire Elemental] Searing Totem

 Instant Hex macro:
/cast [nomod] Hex;
[mod:shift] Ancestral Swiftness
/cast Hex

Press the Macro without any modifier for your normal Hex or hold down shift to casts Ancestral Swiftness for a instant Hex.

  Chain Lightning macro:
Chain Lightning
/cast Ancestral Swiftness
/cast Chain Lightning

This will give you a instant Chain Lightning every time Ancestral is off cooldown. I use this all the time when I’m raiding.

  Ghost Wolf macro:
/cast !Ghost Wolf

This will let you spam Ghost Wolf without accidentally taking you outta form

  Quick Burst macro:
Elemental Mastery
/use 13
/use 14
/cast Blood Fury
/cast Berserking
/cast Elemental Mastery

Uses all of your big cooldowns for some quick dps. If one of your trinkets is for something other than damage, just take out the /13 or /14 lines.
