So you want to play a PvE setup for your multiboxing team? Then I might have a few tips, to get you started. After all, multiboxing is about character management and the way to achieve this in WoW is addons and macros.
The following macros can be used for all classes, and only serve a purpose out of combat. It is not required to have these on any keybindings. You might want to put them on an actionbar for less used stuff, e.g. bar 5.
Consume conjured food and water
/use [nocombat] (name of conjured food) /use [nocombat] (name of conjured water)
This macro will use the group leader’s target and assign focus to it.
/assist party1 /focus
In order to clear the focus, the following macro is required, too.
/clearfocus [targetfocus, dead]
The following macro will mount a character using either a land mount or a flight mount, depending on the zone a character is in. If the zone allows flying mounts, the macro will always use the flying mount, otherwise the land mount.
If you are currently mounted, you will be dismounted.
#showtooltip /cast [outdoors,nomounted,flyable] (name of flying mount) /cast [outdoors,nomounted] (name of land mount) /dismount [mounted]
The following macro can be used to assist the group leader, and assist him in order to attack his target.
#showtooltip /target [targetparty1,nodead] /assist /cast [exists,harm,nodead] (spell name)
Class specific macros
The following macros will only work for specific classes, and some might need a counterpart on another character.
Conjure / Consume food and water
/use [nocombat] (name of conjured food) /use [nocombat] (name of conjured water) /use [combat] (name of conjured mana gem) /cast [mod:ctrl] Conjure Food /cast [mod:alt] Conjure Water /cast [mod:shift] (name of Conjure Mana Gem)
This macro will sheep the current focus.
#showtooltip Polymorph /cast [targetfocus] Polymorph

This macro will cycle through a list of characters which are alive and friendly, and will cast Divine Intervention on the first target that fulfills these two conditions, in order to save a class with a resurrection spell.
#showtooltip Divine Intervention /cast [targetBrista,help,nodead][targetPriswa,help,nodead] Divine Intervention
One little secret that while in a regular group (not raid) the
true for your group members but NOT for you. This way you will never try to cast
Blessing of Protection on yourself. If the mob targets you, the macro will do
The castsequence effectively gives you a “backup” taunt. If your first one gets resisted or you need to re-taunt before the cooldown is up it will use Blessing of Protection.
#showtooltip Righteous Defense /castsequence [targettargettarget,help,raid] reset15 Righteous Defense,Blessing of Protection
Multi-purpose healing / debuffing
/cast [modifier:lctrl, targetparty1, exists,party,nodead] Renew; [modifier:lshift, targetparty1, exists,party,nodead] Flash Heal; [modifier:rctrl, targetparty1, exists,party,nodead] Resurrection; [targetparty1, exists,party,nodead] Heal
This macro will shackle the current focus.
/cast [targetfocus] Shackle Undead
Repeatedly executing this macro will stomp the listed totems one by one. If you wait longer than 7 seconds, the macro will reset and start from zero with the first totem listed.
