This macro works in a similar way to the HOTs macro for Druids. It’s button that will allow you to quickly cast your instant heals on your tank (or on a target that you focus), quickly following with a Healing Surge. It starts by applying Earth Shield on your tank (or on the target that you focus), then follows up with Unleash Life, Riptide, Healing Stream Totem, and Healing Surge. When Riptide and the other instant heals are on CD, you will only cast Healing Surge.

Also, in order to re-apply Earth Shield on your tank, you need to change the target. However, this shouldn’t be a problem, because sooner or later you will have to heal someone else, and when you get back to spamming this healing button for your tank, Earth Shield will be re-applied.

Shaman Focus Heal Macro

Shaman Focus Heal Macro - Notepad Code

Macro code:

Sequences['RestoShammy1'] = {
PreMacro = [[
/targetenemy [noharm][dead]
/castsequence [@focus,exists] reset=target Earth Shield,null
[[/cast [@focus,exists] Unleash Life]],
[[/cast [@focus,exists] Riptide]],
[[/cast Healing Stream Totem]],
[[/cast [@focus,exists] Healing Surge]],



Required class – Shaman
Required spec – Restoration
Required addon – GnomeSequencer


You can add Chain Heal to this macro if you want. However, it’s best to keep only single target heals in it, to know that this is a button exclusively for your tank. Also, you can remove Healing Stream Totem from it and cast it separately when you think it’s most needed.

In case you don’t have or don’t want to install the GnomeSequencer addon, you can write a similar, simpler panic button macro for healing your tank, this way:

/castsequence [@focus,exists] reset=6 Riptide,Healing Surge,Healing Surge

This shorter and simpler macro won’t work until your Riptide is up again, if you’ve just casted it on a different target. The same goes for Unleash Life, and if you want this too in the simpler sequence, the reset period should be 15.
