Easy Misdirection

This project is abandoned and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of World of Warcraft. Whether this project is out of date or its author has marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

The easiest way to create/edit a misdirection/Tricks of the Trade macro. The same documentation is available in game within the configuration panel.


  • With a Data Broker display, I use Bazooka
  • With the minimap icon
  • With Titan Panel
  • With the command line

The macro need to be named as indicated in game (can be localized), the replacement string need to be as indicated in game (can be localized) and is case sensitive. You can set differents macros depending on your location (5-man, raid, battleground, arena) and your current specialisation if activated. You can also set it manualy with the menu or the command line, below you will find the order behavior. When your are not using a macro location type the input box need to be empty or the addon will consider it activated.

You can drag and drop a spell from the spellbook to the input boxes.

Some example macros (in enUS):

/cast [@{TARGET},nodead] Misdirection

Will turn into:

/cast [@Shenton,nodead] Misdirection
/cast [target={TARGET},nodead] Misdirection
/cast [somecondition,othercondition] Somepsell

Will turn into:

/cast [target=Shenton,nodead] Misdirection
/cast [somecondition,othercondition] Somepsell

Will stay the same.

If activated when you will enter a 5-man instance and roles are defined the macro will be automaticaly set to the tank, if the tank left and auto pet is activated the macro will switch to your pet, and if a new tank join it will set it automaticaly. If activated when you will leave the instance the macro will be automaticaly set to your pet.

You can create the macro easily in the configuration dialog.

Locations order behavior

  • Party: Party => Raid => Default
  • Raid: Raid => Party => Default
  • Battleground: Battleground => Arena => Default
  • Arena: Arena => Battleground => Default


/md or /easymd

  • With no argument it will display the configuration dialog.
  • /md help Commands help.
  • /md cicle Cicle through tanks if the Tanks module is activated.
  • /md <name> [raid|party|pvp|arena|default], Will set the macro to the given name with the optional forced instance type.


If you find an error or have a suggestion please use the tickets page on WowAce, you can also help with localization.

You will find here the enUS locales with comments.
