This disease DK macro will apply diseases on your main target and spread them to the other targets. It’s a very useful macro due to the fact that you actually put 3 important Death Knight spells on the same button, saving 2 slots in your primary quick bar, and make the applying of the diseases and their spreading much easier.

DK Disease Spreading Macro

To use the macro, drag it in your quick bar, select one target (from a group of targets), and hit it 3 times. On the first hit, you will perform Icy Touch and apply Frost Fever on your main target. On the second hit, you will perform Plague Strike and apply Blood Plague on your main target. On the third hit of the macro, you will perform Blood Boil and both diseases applied on your primary target will be spread to the other targets.

The macro will reset to Icy Touch once you finish it (once you cast Blood Boil). The macro will also reset after 6 seconds (in case you haven’t hit it the 3rd time to perform Blood Boil), or if you change your target.

Macro code:

/castsequence reset=target/6 Icy Touch,Plague Strike,Blood Boil


Required class – Death Knight


You can (and you should), use this macro on any Death Knight spec. It simplifies your your disease application, and you get to free slots in your main quick bar to fill with other most used abilities.

You can expand this macro adding Obliterate or Death Strike, and have a complete rotation on one button. Your macro should look like this, in that case:

/castsequence reset=target/12 Icy Touch,Plague Strike,Blood Boil,Obliterate,Obliterate,Frost Strike,Frost Strike


/castsequence reset=target/8 Icy Touch,Plague Strike,Blood Boil,Death Strike,Death Strike

In case you expand this macro, don’t forget to change the reset timer of the macro from 6 to 8 or 12, or whatever you need, so it does not reset before you complete it. Also, if you’re going to use this macro for PvP, be careful not to break the CCs with Blood Boil. In other words, depending on situation, it’s best to only hit the macro 2 times, to apply your diseases only on your current target.

Want to automate the macro creating process and to be sure that you use the most effective macros for your class and spec? There is an addon that will help you achieve this. Read my review for this macro and keybinding addon here.
