SimpleAssist  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.95
by: schnoggo [More]
A very simple AddOn to replace the classic /assist macro.

SimpleAssist creates some new key bindings and automatically assists raid leaders who requests assistance.
In addition, it provides a mechanism to announce your requests for assistance and assign Raid Icons - all with one keystroke.

The Key Binding:
Set Player to Assist - Target the player you wish to assist in battle by clicking them or their portrait. Then hit the key you've bound to this function to 'remember' who to assist.

Assist Learned Player - Hitting this key will select the target of ('assist') the player you selected with the 'Set Player to Assist.' If no player is learned, this will assist your current target.

To clear the learned Assist, just click in empty space and hit the Set Player to Assist key.
If you have no player 'learned,' the Assist key will work like the regular Assist function. This makes it safe to override your regular Assist binding. ('F')

Attack My Target - There is a keybinding for the /attacktarget emote, as well as options to declare that you are changing your target via chat channels and raid icons.

How to Use
When following the Main Assist· Go to your keybinding panel in the Main Menu to set up your keys.
· When raid leader announces new MA, target that player
· Hit your Set Player to Assist key
· Whenever you need a new target, hit your Assist Learned Player key to target the MA's target.


When you are the Main Assist· Go to your keybinding panel in the Main Menu to set up your keys.
· Set your preferred announce channel and Raid Icon in the preferences panel by typing /sass
· To have the group attack your current target, just hit your Attack My Target key. This will send an /attacktarget emote, announce in the channel(s) of your choice and optionally put a Raid Icon on your target.



Why use an AddOn instead of a macro?

* Faster/Easier to set your assist.
* Free up a macro slot.

VERY handy in fast-moving conditions like the battlegrounds!

Update for 2.4?

Any update for this addon for 2.4? Or is it okay to use it out of date?

Thanks.

Can you use a macro?

Hi there. Love your addon! I would like to make a macro that clicks the "assist learned player" rather than assign it to a key. How would I do this? Thanks in advance

Let me clarify. I use bartender 4 and have keys assigned to them. when I mind control a target, my main bar flips to the attacks the mind controlled target uses. If I assign one of these buttons as my "assist learned target" button, that button does not work anymore when I'm mind controlling something. I learned this the hard way during Nax. That's why I wanted to script this to a macro and put it on my bar, so when it flips for MC it does not freeze up that button.

1) Download the file from here and unzip. You will have a file named simpleassist_292.
2) Rename simpleassist_292 to simpleassist.zip and unzip that file.
3) Place the directory that will be unzipped into your WoW addons directory.

I don't know why but for some reason it is a zip file within a zip file. I'm not sure why but there is a mention of Dropbox if you open the simpleassist_292 file in a text editor. *Shrug* Who knows? Who cares? Just as long as it works.
