Frost Mage DPS Macros and Addons - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (2024)


Addons for Frost Mage


Weak Auras

Weak Auras is the most important AddOn for players seeking to master theirclass and take their gameplay to new heights. If you aspire to do any Mythicraiding, this is the most powerful tool in your kit. Weak Auras allow you todisplay helpful visual cues anywhere on your screen, which enables you to playbetter. Most players use it to track their trinket procs, highlight on-screendisplays of their most important cooldowns, or track the timers of bossmechanics. It is highly customizable and makes keeping track of your procs andcooldowns effortless. The drawback of Weak Auras is that it has a bit of alearning curve and is not the most user-friendly. Weak Auras allow you to importother players' data directly into their UI, however, and most players choose tosimply import other people's Weak Auras rather than make their own. Weak Aurascan be used to create just about anything you can imagine, as it is an LUAscripting tool (essentially an AddOn that creates other AddOns in-game). Thisis by far the most essential AddOn for players looking to step into Mythicraiding.


Boss Mods

Boss Mods are helpful pre-made timers that allow you to keep track of thenoteworthy mechanics in any given encounter. Usually, they come equipped withhelpful prompts, visuals, and sounds to ensure you do not miss anythingimportant.


BigWigs Bossmods

BigWigs is the best boss mod available currently. It is extremelycustomizable, allowing you to change what is displayed on an individual bosslevel and how boldly you want each alert customized. BigWigs is typically themost accurate and periodically updated of the available Boss Mods. It does notrequire any setup at all, though there are a dizzying array of options andcustomizations should you wish to personalize your setup.


Deadly Boss Mods

Deadly Boss Mods is an alternative to BigWigs, though it usually is not asaccurate early in the patch. Most of the alerts are loud and flashy by default,making this a potentially good choice for players who have very littleexperience in a raid environment.


Name Plates

Nameplates are essential for allowing you to easily keep track of basicdebuffs and quickly select new targets in combat. While ElvUI nameplates do comestandard with the AddOn, they are a little limited and occasionally buggy.Listed below are some good alternatives.


KUI Nameplates

KUI Nameplates offer the highest degree of customization and accuracy. Forexample, you can easily configure the nameplates to enlarge and change colorwhen a target reaches a certain percentage of health, which can be very helpfulfor classes with executes. They always correctly display your debuffs, and theirclick box is very accurate. Some setup is required, although it is very simpleand straightforward.

TidyPlates are not quite as customizable or accurate as KUI, but they are animprovement over the default UI or the ElvUI nameplates. They are also great outof the box, requiring little to no setup at all, which is a plus for someplayers.


Damage Meters

Damage meters display a variety of helpful data about what is taking place incombat, from your current DPS (or HPS) to the number of interrupts each playersuccessfully used.



Skada is a lightweight damage meter that is exceptionally accurate. Itdoes not take up much memory, which could cause you to lag, and displays a widerange of helpful data. This is the recommended damage meter if you log your raiddata to WarcraftLogs.



Details is a more heavyweight damage meter, taking up quite a bit of memory.It offers extensive in-game analysis tools compared to Skada, however, allowingyou to break down your data in depth without leaving the game. This is therecommended damage meter if you do not log your raid data.


Extra AddOns

These AddOns are just small trimmings that might make your life a littleeasier.



Decursive addsa small grid representing your party or raid to your UI. They are simple boxeswith no actual information aside from if they are afflicted with a specificdebufftype your class can dispel. You simply have to click the box that turned purpleto use Frost Mage DPS Macros and Addons - Dragonflight 10.2.7 (1) Remove Curse on a teammate.


Mik's Scrolling Battle Text

If you are not satisfied with the default combat text, this AddOn is analternative that allows you to heavily customize your scrolling combat text.Quite a bit of setup is required.



DeathNote displays the last several deaths for each of your party or raidmembers. For 30 seconds before their death, a complete timestamp of theircombat log is displayed, showing their current health, what heals they received,what buffs and debuffs they had, whether they used their cooldowns,etc. This AddOn helps break down your death as well as findingout whether that guy did use his healthstone.


Doom CooldownPulse

Whenever one of your abilities comes off cooldown, this AddOn flashes a largetransparent version of the ability in the center of your screen, alerting youthat it is off cooldown. You can easily configure what is displayed or use itby default.


Angry Assignments

This AddOn allows you to set up text assignments that are displayed toeveryone else in the raid group that has the AddOn. Extremely beneficial forraiding guilds, particularly when assigning jobs like interrupt orders, or whatplayers are soaking in what quadrants of the room, etc.
