I’ve had a few requests for an updated BM hunter macro. This is what I have been running with. So here’s the latest GSE macro, and a couple of others I use with this. I’m hitted my simmed DPS pretty easily in M+ Really enjoying BM hunter!
—==== Shadowlands BM macro by Bam™ ====—
This is always a work in progress, so please keep the suggestions and ideas coming!
-== Changes for Shadowlands ==-
Kill Shot - Fires when your target falls below 20% HP, it will skip this until that point).
Hunter’s Mark - Beware, this only marks your first target, if you’re pulling large mobs you will have to manually put this on each target after the first.
On Key Release this macro will now cast Bite, Claw or Smack depending on which pet you have active, I have added this because the auto-cast of your pet is very slow.
Cobra Shot is now a cast sequence with 3 second cooldown. This should help to make sure that Kill Command and Barbed Shot are priorities. I have found that elsewise I was firing off too many Cobta Shots, loosing foucs so that when Kill Command was off Cooldown I did not have enough focus.
-== About the Macro ==-
The macro should help you keep Barbed Shot up to get the most use from Thrill of the Hunt talent. Another staple of my rotation is to cast Kill Command pretty much on cooldown - I have spent hours running various tests, and this macro will cast Kill Command and Barbed Shot pretty much on cooldown. Cobra Shot aims to fire no more than twice between barbed shots, Kill Shot will fire when your target falls below 20% HP. Until then the sequence will just skip this.
This macro does not include Arcane Shot, due to the cost. This macro does now include Bestial Wrath and Aspect of the Wild as part of the main macro. I have also included the Heart Essense function at the moment. This will be updated when shadowlands drops and we are no longer using it.
I am making use of AHK, running at 70ms for this macro.

For help or advice you can find me on the WoW Lazy Macro’s Forums along with my other published macros! Alternatively find me on battle.net - Bam#2447
This macro contains 1 macro version. This Sequence was exported from GSE 2.6.38.
Macro Version 1
Step Function: Sequential
Pre Macro: Bestial Wrath, Aspect of the Wild, Hunter’s Mark
KeyPress: Call Pet 1, Revive Pet
Main Sequence: Kill Shot, Barbed Shot, Kill Command, Bestial Wrath, Steady Shot, Aspect of the Wild
Post Macro: Revive Pet
This macro does not inclue my Covenant ability. I have roled Night Fae, and am using a seprate simple macro to pop this [@cursor] - I find that it’s important to use this at the right time to get optimum DPS.
It also does not include Soulforge Embers which I am also running. Again. im using a seperate macro from the default macro panel to run this in a very similar way as Wild Spirits.
I have had some requests to add these into the main macro sequence, this is entireley possible. However, I feel that these abilities are best used outside of the main sequence and used when required for specific encourters, mostly AoE. I might work on a seprate AoE macro and encorporate these into that. However, for now this seems to be working well for me.
Please let me know how you get on with this update, and if you have any suggestions please let me know :).
