The Fire spec is much better to play vs. single targets. However, it also has its share of AOE abilities, and can of course be played vs. multiple enemies. The following GS macro, even though it’s not exactly the most perfect one, can simplify your gameplay as a Fire AoE Mage.

The macro will scroll through your main damaging abilities, such as Inferno Blast, Combustion, Dragon’s Breath, but also use Scorch and Fireball, as they’re great for creating procs for your Pyroblast. It also contains Living Bomb, but you will have to cycle through targets in order to apply it on each one of them. The macro will always apply Living Bomb on a new target.

Fire Mage AoE Macro

Fire Mage AoE Macro - Notepad Code

Macro code:

Sequences['FireMageAoE'] = {
PreMacro = [[
/targetenemy [noharm][dead]
/castsequence reset=target Living Bomb,null
/run UIErrorsFrame:Clear()
]],
[[/cast Scorch]],

[[/cast Fireball]],
[[/cast Dragon's Breath]],
}

Restrictions:

Required class – Mage
Required spec – Fire
Required talents – Living Bomb
Required addon – GnomeSequencer

Tips:

Flamestrike is one of the most important AoE abilities for a Fire Mage. But since it must be applied with an area target, it’s problematic to have in this macro. It can still work though, but whenever it will be up and toggled under your mouse cursor, you will have to select an area to place your Flamestrike and left click to cast it. It’s best to use it separately, though.

Needless to say, to be more effective with an AoE Fire spec, you should use Glyph of Dragon’s Breath and Glyph of Inferno Blast. Glyph of Ignite also helps with kiting, if necessary.

In case you use Ice Barrier, you should add it in the macro.

Using Pyroblast whenever it procs it’s of the essence when playing a Fire Mage, whethere you’re fighting one or multiple targets. But if you put it in the macro, you will sometimes cast it when it’s not instant. That’s why it’s best to have it on a separate key, or even better, use it in a stopcasting macro.
