The following Survival GS macro will help you keep up your DoTs on the target at all time, allowing your to put up a rather optimized rotation. It will cast Black Arrow, A Murder of Crows, Explosive Shot and Arcane Shot, and generate Focus with Focusing Shot.

Since it’s a macro meant for single targeting, I have left out Glaive Toss, Powershot or Barrage. Even though these are heavy DPS abilities, they’re AoE and might get you unnecessary aggro. However, if it’s not the case you can any of these to the macro. It’s best though to keep them on a separate key, and use them when you can.

You can use Cobra Shot if you want, but in that case the macro won’t supply enough Focus. In fact, you’ll hardly have any Focus ever to use Barrage or Glaive Toss, whether or not it’s in the macro. Therefore, if you don’t want to use Focusing Shot, you should keep Cobra Shot on a separate key and throw one or two in at times, if needed.
