So, I've decided to start making audio soloing guides during the summer - I plan on starting with the Wotlk raids then the cataclysm one. But of course ever since a hunter in my guild tried to solo without spirit bond, I realized that many things I took for granted weren't that obvious, so I decided to start with the basics.
I've tried to be as understandable as possible, having seldom spoken english in the last 9 years, but if there's too much people who have trouble understanding me, just comment and I guess I'll have to write down that four-page script so you can check.
I hope this guide will cover everything you wanted to know about soloing, don't hesitate to comment.

Thank you for reading.
Since this is my first audio guide, don't hesitate to give feedback as long as it's constructive.
There are 3 basic macros. However, you can always create some for a particular boss fight.
The misdirect macros are:
#showtooltip name of spell
/cast [@focus,help][@pet,exists] Misdirection
/cast name of spell
Simply macro all of your shots (except barrage, or it may be interrupted), and you'll misdirect full time on your pet.
Then there's the call back pet macro:
/target your character
/cast master's call
It is useful for kiting, and is also capable of debugging your pet if he gets stuck on a ledge or in a rock
Finally the healing macro:
/tar your character
/cast spirit mend
Now, when making macros, just remember that the most useful line is /targetlasttarget or /targetlastenemy
