This simple macro will group under a single button some of the most important Arcane spells for AoE. It will apply Nether Tempest on a new target, cast Arcane Explosion, Arcane Barrage and Cone of Cold as they become available., along with Ice Barrier with some defense.

Mage Arcane AoE Macro


Arcane Mage AoE Macro - Notepad Code

Macro code:

Sequences['Arcane2'] = {
PreMacro = [[
/castsequence reset=10/target Nether Tempest,null
[[/cast Arcane Explosion]],
[[/cast Arcane Barrage]],
[[/cast Cone of Cold]],
[[/cast Ice Barrier]],


Required class – Mage
Required spec – Arcane
Required talents – Nether Tempest, Ice Barrier
Required addons – GnomeSequencer


It’s best to use this macro when fighting multiple targets, especially when in instances.

You can also slip in the macro a /use trinket command or Arcane Power to use them as they become available too. However, since these are cooldowns better used at bosses or stronger mobs, it’s best to keep them for situations of the sort.
