Once you have your character set up with gear, enchants, and so on, and you’ve learned your rotation, there are a couple of ways you can really take your gameplay to the next level, and that’s with addons and macros. These tools can enhance your performance by making it easy to track and perform actions that might be much more complicated with only hotkeys and the default interface. This guide will get you started with some of the best addons and macros to use as an Elemental Shaman in Cataclysm Classic.


Addons are direct quality-of-life improvements to the existing game features. They can range from User Interface modifications to simple tools such as a Damage Meter or Threat Meter. Addons can also be used to generate text notifications or even in-game vocal notifications to keep better track of your buffs and procs. They can also be used to display boss tactics and notify you of impending threats.

  • DeadlyBossMods – Allows you to track boss abilities. A must-have for raiding.
  • Details – Shows you how much damage, healing, and threat everyone in your raid is doing. Flex on your friends!
  • WeakAuras – Extremely versatile addon that can be used to track buffs, debuffs, or create audio notifications.

WeakAuras or a similar addon is strongly recommended for tracking your buffs, procs, and cooldowns as an Elemental Shaman. You may have a hard time keeping track of everything otherwise.


Here are a few macros that can improve your effectiveness as an Elemental Shaman by combining actions so you can focus on other things.

Reincarnation Tracker

Passives can’t be dragged to your action bars, but you can use this macro to keep an eye on your Reincarnation cooldown.
