What up guys. Just finished my "cheat sheet" macro set for T14 LFR, guides for all bosses currently released. Just copy-paste these into your macro menu, assign icons and whack 'em on one of your spare action bars. Then all you'll need to do is click the one for the appropriate raid encounter that you're about to face and all questions should be cleared up for your group.

Click the REQUEST STICKY above if you find these useful, and be sure to check out the follow-up in-progress 10/25man role based strategy videos over at youtube.com/theddguides
If there's enough interest over these then I'll be posting cheat sheets on all future patches and raids as soon as they come up. Love writing these things!

[UPDATE] They just changed the system for LFR chat in the last patch (5.1), so now /ra doesn't work at all. I've changed all the macros to /i so anyone using the old ones will need to update!

---------------------------------------------------------

Guardians of Mogu'shan

/i - Move from tornadoes.
/i - Taunt swap at 2 debuff stacks.

/i - Priority for DPS: little adds --> mutated construct
/i - Kill flamey dude.


/i (Boss 3/3 - Shek'zeer)

thanks for the list although at least the stone guard strat may want to be changed. Yes what you have does work great they should be able to be zerged down fairly easily with stacking all three together. So maybe make a macro dealing with what to do per combination/mechanic to avoid damage.

Lol I literally re-opened my tab after doing the raid finder just then to make that very change!
Consider it happened.

Another thing for Amber-shaper, and this may be different for tanks or lfr I suppose but I believe when you get transformed your 1 skill is the debuff with 3 being to absorb the puddles.

Also you have "is is" as a typo in the sha of fear one. Once again great list thanks for making it.

I'll confirm in my next run.

You don't need to trade pheromones in LFR, they max out at 20 stacks...so you can just have the tank hold them and everyone stay away from him for safety.

/ra (Boss 2/4 - Tsulong)
/ra - Spread out. During Night Phase, step into the beam of light to clear your stacks. Tanks, face boss away from raid + taunt swap after breath. Dispels!
/ra - Day Phase: stack in front of boss (heal boss!) + kill adds


This isn't nearly good enough imo. Healing breath should be mentioned and dispel tsulong is more important per sec than an entire phase.

/ra (Boss 2/3 - Feng)
/ra - Tanks, click purple crystal before fight for abilities. Use 'em during the bosses channeled stuff. Face him away from raid.
/ra - Everyone, group up during [Epicenter] for AOE heals.
/ra - Drop [Wildfire Spark]s away from raid


Would be good to add the p3 debuff warning.

Added the suggestions, but would you mind rewriting the Tsulong to clarify your point? There's a character limit in each macro that prevents me from being thorough.

Swapping at 20 stacks of spray is a recipe for a tank to get one shot.

Should it be lower or higher? Is the issue the number is too high, or that the stacks would overlap before taunt swapping?

well I see no need to have the (boss 2/4 - Tsulong)

/I Night Phase- go into beam of light to clear stacks, avoid puddles
/I Day Phase- healers in front of boss ( healing buff from breath) heal boss and dispel terrorize off him
/I Kill unstable sha-> fright spawn-> embodied terror

Thats just how I'd do it.
