GnomeMacros, or extensive macros in general apply easily, and pretty well to the Arcane Mage spec. That’s because the spells are pretty much straightforward, and don’t have many requirements. Therefore here’s a ToolKit macro for Arcane, that will help you build Arcane Charges and dump them, putting quite some DPS in the process.

Arcane Mage Macro for Building and Dumping Charges

Macro Code:

/targetenemy [noharm,dead]
/use Arcane Power
/castsequence [nochanneling]reset=8 Arcane Blast,Arcane Blast,Arcane Blast,Arcane Blast,Arcane Barrage
/castsequence [nochanneling]reset=15 !Arcane Missiles,!Arcane Missiles,!Arcane Missiles
/use Presence of Mind


Required class – Mage
Required spec – Arcane
Required talents – Arcane Orb
Required addons – Macro ToolKit


It’s best to also use Supernova along with this macro, but not within the macro. Just keep it separately, and cast it when you have 4 charges.

To boost DPS you can also add Draenic Intellect Potion (or basically any short term buff potion) into the macro. Or, in order to save up your CDs for the moment when they’re most needed, you can take out Presence of Mind and Arcane Power out from the macro, and use them separately.
