[Cata Classic] Blood DK Lvl 81-85 **Updated 07/17/2024**

Hi all,
Here is my Blood DK macro, I will keep working on this as needed to keep up the tanking performance.

Modded spells casts are:

  • Death and Decay (Will cast at your feet when you press ALT)
  • Pestilence (Will cast when you press CTRL)
  • Blood Boil (Will cast when you press SHIFT)

Macro updated: 07/17/2024: @ 9:28am PST
Change to the rotation so the sequence flows better, working smoother now.

Macro updated: 07/16/2024: @ 12:30pm PST
This macro has been completely revamped, making it a more basic/simple macro.
The macro now will cast Outbreak and use it on CD. The macro does not cast Icy Touch or Plague Strike (you can use those manually if you choose.) The macro will no longer cast Pestilence unless you use the modded key.
I did this update to try and make it easier and more user-friendly for the community and those who choose to use this macro.

Macro updated: 07/14/2024: @ 4:08pm PST
Minor changes to macro. Did dungeon and Target dummy tests and the macro is still running smoothly.
I also changed it so that when you use the modded key for outbreak if you hold CTRL it will cast pestilence as well. If you just press control it will cast Outbreak.

Macro updated: 06/07/2024: @ 9:55am PST
Updated rotation for better playstyle. I changed Pestilence to go off right after the Plague strike hits. So Icy Touch, Plague Stike then Pestilence will cast first on your target and refresh that opener on a new target.

I placed Blood Boil on a mod because you should only be using Blood Boil with Crimson Scourge active for ST or when you have 6+ for AOE.

The macro does not control:
Icebound Fortitude
Dancing Rune Weapon
Bone Shield (used generally in AOE)
Vampiric Blood
Army of the Dead
Death Coil
Mind Freeze
Strangulate
Death Grip
Empower Rune Weapon
Chains of Ice
Dark Command (Your taunt)
Death Pact
Anti-Magic Shell
Etc.
These are all situational spells.

Can anyone tell me what the Claw Ability is? I don’t see it in my spell book but its inside the Macro

Its a spell the goul uses but bit odd to have it in macro when its not an unholy spec

Heya,

Yeah, I had it in there when I was testing the macro when I had the DK pet out for a boss fight for extra DPS, it just forces the ghoul to cast claw by force instead of waiting for it to auto-attack with it.

It is mostly used for UHDK to spam the attack with their pet, I just added it for when you do summon the pet that’s all, you can remove it, it’s not necessary for blood DKs. In the updated macro, I’ve removed the claw attack and fixed some of the rotation.

Working great atm, still leveling and no tanking yet, but before i go in instances so i wonder is this for singel target mostly?? and if yes, how could i put in so it uses blood boil like on a modifier when i got more then 3-4 mobs, sry if stupid question, im still learning to understand those lines :stuck_out_tongue: and maybe it pumps some other way on aoe packs

No such thing as stupid questions IMO. I will add a mod for it soon, I just haven’t had a chance to log in and play today.

Have you managed to get the macro doing a modifier for AOE threat while tanking dungeons? Thanks!

noob here, can someone explain what the 160ms is a reference too? It sounds like a mouse setting i think? Do i need a gaming mouse to do that?

Hello,
i,m haveing a small problem and idk if is my fault. In normal rotation death and decay is casted without pressing shieft. I do something wrong or is supose to cast it in the rotation? And i more thing now i feel i run out much faster on runic power. Need to have some stats to run smoothly? Sory id those are noob questions.

Yes is mouse speed, if you dont have a dedicated mouse that suport macros, you can search something named autoclick, if i,m not wrong.

I just updated the macro about a minute ago, see if that works, and let me know if it doesn’t.

Yeah, it would help if you had a gaming mouse with software to use macros to auto-click with a mouse. Otherwise, if you do not have a gaming mouse then you can use Auto Hot Key (AHK), if you need help with AHK, I have an old AHK script that should still work.

Now key binding works perfect, it don’t cast death and decay in the rotation. Thx for help!

I feel like plague strike isn’t firing in the cast sequence block like it should. It hardly goes off in trash packs before they die or I have to pick up a new target, and on bosses, maybe it goes off before they get to half health. Either way, its never icy touch then plague strike immediately after, its always, icy touch, everything else a couple times, maybe icy touch again, then plague strike or something.

And at the end of that first block cast sequence, is it suppose to say “shh” i’m use to it saying null…but it could be a change in GSE im not up tp date with.

Otherwise things are working good!!

I just fixed it and tested it multiple times, now it fires icy touch, and then the plague strikes right after.
The ‘shh’ and ‘null’ are the same thing, it’s just to stop it from spam casting, I just put ‘shh’ cause it to me is like “shh! stop casting” lol.

Let me know if it works for you now.
