    Macros are contained in a text file located at:

    General Macros: World of Warcraft\WTF\Account\<account name>\macros-cache.txt

    Character Specific: ...\Account\<account name>\<server name>\<char name>\macros-cache.txt

    You should be able to simply copy that file from your old character's directory to the new one.

    For character transfers I always recommend copying the entire:
    Code:
    WTF\Account\accname\Oldserver\Oldcharname
    folder to
    Code:
    WTF\Account\accname\Newserver\Newcharname

    Hate to necro an old post, but does this still work? I copied just as described above, from the Gul'dan server folder to my Bleeding Hollow server folder and the macros still don't show up in game.

    I think macros are stored server-side these days, but I could be mistaken. Check if macros-cache.txt (in the folder you mentioned) has your character-specific macros.

    They're stored both server-side and client-side. Copying the macros-cache.txt file will still work.

    Make sure if you do any of the above actions you do them while you're not logged into the character you're copying to or it won't work.
