    I love macros, I love saving space, I love time on target and utility macros.
    some classes dont have autoaquiretarget and auto startattack built in, the best way to find out if a spell needs a few helper commands is to stand in front of an attackable target or have a friend duel you for this purpose, have nothing targeted and open your spellbook, then click your spells out of your spellbook. If you target the enemy and go into an auto attack stance (if the target gets close enough, you will hit it with your weapon) then it is good to go but if it says "you have no target" etc, then you may want to try a few easy commands for that spell or ability.

    For those of you that don't know how to make macros, I will share a quick walkthrough the way I do it once you are logged into game on a character.
    open a line of text and type /macro or hit escape and hit macros
    name the macro, ie, "FS,AS,KC" for the macro I will show those represent Hunter Flanking Strike, Aimed Shot, and Kill Command. leave the icon as a question mark ? and hit enter
    You are now in the macro command window. here you will enter the macro.

    I usually start all my macros with some useful platform lines like this.

    #showtooltip (if this is not in the macro, when you hover over it, the tooltip on the right will only show the name of the macro and not the spell details)

    #showcooldown (this will show the cooldown number countdown on your macro icon when used)

    /dismount (if you have a pet and are mounted when a rogue saps you, even though you can target them your pet will not attack them so this command gets you off your mount and your pet can then pull them out of stealth and lose their opener, unless they blind the pet lol)

    /leavevehicle (in case you are on someone else's mount or on a vehicle like a seesaw or cannon. you need both commands to make sure you aren't stuck on something when you need to engage in combat)

    /startattack (this command auto acquires a enemy target and puts your auto attack on, do NOT use this command with a sap spell as it will immediately remove the sap with your dammaging auto attack. most of you know that but for those that don't , there ya go)

    /petattack (this command is so helpful for mages,hunters,locks as it sends your pet on your current target when you hit the macro which leaves you able to keep your pet on passive all the time and it will not run off after some guy that hit you 5 minutes ago and be on the other side of the map. Especially important for your hunter pet for Flanking Strike to have your pet on your target)

    there are variations of these for situations but my basic platform for most of my macros looks like this.
    #showtooltip
    #showcooldown
    /dismount
    /leavevehicle
    /startattack
    /petattack

    then you can add your spell or ability command as needed to change your macros.
    if you try to cast a macro and it says the command instead of casting it, look for a space in front of a command line, like this

    #showtooltip
    #showcooldown
    /dismount
    _ /leavevehicle *( _ represents the space in front of command)
    /startattack
    /petattack
    /cast Harpoon

    that macro would do everything correctly unless you were on someone else's mount which would count as a vehicle and would say " /leavevehicle" in /say because there's a space in front of it. Simply remove the space and you will be golden.


    ON TO THE MULTIMACRO for ALL SPECS.

    *
    Legion, 9/25/2017 found a few improvements here, this can be used for any class and any spec, it shows the tooltip of the different spells for each spec when you switch and the cooldown plus casts the appropriate spell , you can easily change them to what you want.

    #showtooltip [spec:1] Kill Command; [spec:2] Aimed Shot; [spec:3] Flanking Strike
    #showcooldown [spec:1] Kill Command; [spec:2] Aimed Shot; [spec:3] Flanking Strike
    /cast Flanking Strike
    /cast Kill Command
    /cast Aimed Shot

    as simple as that, leave the icon as a ? and it will change according to what spell it is for appropriate spec you are in. Hope that helps, no Modifiers needed, change specs and the spell changes with it.

    the [Spec:1] would be the top spec in your Specialization tab, [spec:2] is the middle and [spec:3] the bottom spec :)

    * copied from my post on wowhead http://www.wowhead.com/forums&topic=190&p=4083945#p4083945

    so you can see how one macro space can be used for every spec but with the lengthy space it doesnt leave room for the platforms as above like /startattack etc so maybe just use them for your main abilities like I did, that macro is for my big hitters. happy hunting

    Also here are some other useful macros I have used.

    RUNECLOTH BANDAGE; prioritizes mouseover-target-focus-player

    #showtooltip
    #showcooldown
    /dismount
    /leavevehicle
    /use [@mouseover,help,exists] [@target,help,exists] [@focus,help,exists] [@player] Runecloth Bandage

    replace with any bandage


    HUNTER TRAP on cursor, no need to click the ground to place.

    #showtooltip
    #showcooldown
    /dismount
    /leavevehicle
    /stopcasting
    /stopcasting
    /cast [@cursor] Freezing Trap
    /cast Passive(Pet Stance)
    /petfollow

    the /stopcastings are for marksman if casting aimedshot, it will cancel for an instant trap, replace with any trap, if not freezing, remove the petpassive and follow


    EAGLE EYE respammable, go from outside your base to theirs and respam it in their tunnel and follow their fc everywhere he goes. Use it on darkmoon at the entrance to see if the rabbit is in the cave. Use it in AB, Eots, BFG or AV to call incs and weak bases :) Shammy farsight is built in respam and priest mind vision can go from person to person but for hunters, you need the !

    /cast !Eagle Eye

    I have more but those are a few helpful ones, message me if you would like some helpful healer or dps macros

    its always handy to have a couple /stopcasting commands in with any instant cast like a hot or dot or snare, blink, interrupts, CDs. The reason I put 2 lines of /stopcasting in is because sometimes one line doesn't seem to work as efficiently.

    Please add any good helpful macros that you have to help build the community. Suffer well brothers and sisters

    TL;DR "One Macro to rule them all"?
