How can I bind macros to combinations like letter+number, like X+1, C+1, etc. in World of Warcraft?

You can't do that. The only combinations you can create are with modifier keys like Control, Alt, and Shift.

There are two ways to go about this. Either create a simple macro and drag it to a slot on your action bar that's bound to the combination you want (like Ctrl-1), or modify the macro to do something different if a modifier key is pressed.

For example,/cast [nomodifier] Chain Heal; [modifier:alt] Greater Healing Wave will cast a Chain Heal if no modifier is pressed, and cast Greater Healing Wave when the macro is used while you press Alt.

You could also do something like

/castsequence reset=target Victory Rush, Execute, Execute, Execute, Execute 

But instead of victory rush or execute the skills that you want, the icon will change once you cast a skill and cast different skills with one press of a button.

While yes, that can be done, it is completely unrelated to the question as far as I can tell. – MrLemon Aug 7 '15 at 8:10
