This section of the Guardian Druid guide provides some helpful macro and addon suggestions as well as information on how to make a macro and use Wowhead to create Weakauras. This guide is written by

Macros & Addons
With the pruning and removal of Dream of Cenarius there isn't really any need for macros anymore. A mouseover macro for
is probably not out of the question though.
Basic Mouseover Macro
Allows you to cast a spell on an ally by hovering over their raid frame and hitting the associated keybind. Replace “SPELL” with a spell name.
How to Make a Macro
To open up the Macro menu, type "/macro" or "/m".
Choose between the "General" and Character-specific macro tabs. Then click on the "New" button on the macro window.
Choose a Name and an Icon so you can easily recognize your macro, then click on "Okay."
Select your macro's icon from the list at the top of the macro window, and then click in the text area below. Type or copy/paste your macro into the text area.
When you are finished, click the "Save" button, and to close the window, click "Exit".
In terms of addons, nothing has really changed.
Tidyplates - The new default enemy nameplates sort themselves, but some will prefer how tidyplates did it.
Weak Auras 2 - Plenty of useful ways to use WAs from predicting
healing, to keeping track of your cooldowns.
Raidframe - Some kind of raid frame mod that you can use to easily target
Specific WAs to be added at a later date.
WeakAuras on Wowhead
WeakAuras is a handy addon that flashes a useful alert onto your screen related to important abilities--cooldowns, durations, etc. However, it can be tricky to configure especially if you're new to it, so we've set up basic Weak Aura customizations for every player spell, including intelligent default auras.
Just visit a spell page (
) and click on the red "WeakAuras Export" button to open the panel up. Click "Copy" for our default aura, or "Customize" to easily change your alerts!
