Assigned Tank Assist creates macros that are aware of the "tank" role assigned by the LFD tool. The default is to assist the tank, but they are normal macros except that they can be longer.
Note that !mt and !ma will also work, for the Bliz raid MT and MA. But if you have more than one MT or MA, it basically picks one at random.
To configure, go to the panel (/atassist will go there immediately), and type in a macro in the large box. In the macro, you can use !t where the name of the tank should be inserted. For example, "/assist !t". The addon will keep the macros up to date with the correct name.
Up to 30 macros are supported.
To actually run the macros, do one or both of the following:
1. Set a key binding in the addon's config. panel.
2. Create a normal macro, or edit an existing one, or in some other way run the command:
That line can also by copy/pasted in-game from the smaller text field in the configuration panel. For macros 2-30, you can do the same thing but put the number after, i.e. "/click AssignedTankAssistButton2"
-Updated TOC for 4.3
-Update for WoW 4.0 (thanks to acidzero for providing the fix, since I don't have an account ATM).
-!mt and !ma tags work properly now (note that the tags are designed for raids that only use 1, tags like this are pretty useless if you use multiple mt's or ma's since there's no way to differentiate between them).
-The !mt and !ma tags work better now.
-Fix for "raidx" spam and lag during raid updates (sorry x.x).
-Added !mt and !ma for raid "maintank" and "mainassist" roles.
-Fix for a bug that caused some ATA settings to be cleared when changing other interface settings without having opened ATA's config panel during the current session.
-Fixed a few typos.
-You can now have up to 30 macros.
-Fixed the "default" button not resetting all the options.
-Added "Clear Binding" button.
-Added an option to suppress error text ("You aren't in a group.", "There is no tank.").
-Added an option to run the macro when called even if there is not a tank (replaces !t with blank space).
-Added a button to bind a key to the macro rather than using the /click command.
-Redesign, see the info page.
-Check for changes occasionally as well as on events.
-Added some customization options to the top of the .lua file.
-Fix for rarely leaving duplicate bindings.
-Allows using a macro (ATA_Temp) instead of a binding (see description).
-Registers PLAYER_ROLES_ASSIGNED in addition to PARTY_MEMBERS_CHANGED
