About targetAssist


Anyone else miss MainAssist? targetAssist is my attempt to recreate the basic functionality of that wonderful addon.

targetAssist provides unit frames that track tanks and main assists in your party or raid, along with their current targets. You can position the frames by dragging the header bar. Targeting buttons can be arranged above or below the header (see the Appearance section of the configuration options):

targetAssist window

Right click on the header bar to bring up a context menu that will allow you to select the tracked party/raid members and configure the addon:

Left click on party/raid members or their targets to target those units. Right clicking on the party/raid member buttons brings up a menu that allows you to change the order in which they appear:

targetAssist unit order

Right click on a party/raid member target to change the raid icon on that unit:

The interface options panel allows you to customize the visual appearance and behavior of the addon:

In addition to setting up the addon to automatically track tanks and main assists set through the default UI, you can also broadcast your current settings to other members of your party/raid who are running the addon:

    I have the same problem.

    The bar/buttons do not show when joining a group. Even after cycling hide/show. The only way to get it to show is doing a reloadui - and dungeon groups have no sense of humor waiting for that to take place. :-(


  • #102

    /ta triggered another addon, tabard assist, which I had loaded.  I disabled that addon. /ta show & /ta hide does nothing.  Still have to reload ui after joining group to see tanks.  Will file a ticket.

    I miss this addon so much .... :(

  • #98

    It still works fine for me, are you just not loading it cause it says out of date? Or are you getting an error?

  • #96

    This addon is great but it randomly clears all the assists.  Really bad when you're relying on it and it does this in the middle of a rbg.

  • #95

    hey, can you make this work with a macro?

    so i can bind the macro to a button and basicly what would be nice is:


    /assist <player name>

    like when you set assist on sommebody make it auto fill the player name in the  macro or code. i guess like the Main assist it used to have? i don't know

    cause then you could quickly change your assist player macro without having to go into macros type it out gbla bla bla.

  • #93

    Can you add all party automatically? Would like to have all the party there for when I do 5 mans.

  • #92

    Hi everyone,

    First off thanks for your patience and continued interest in the using the mod.  It's true I'm no longer actively playing, but will keep an eye out here (although, clearly should do so more frequently!).

    Mad props to pesibeth for catching the broken API calls.  I've pulled your "patch", updated the TOC and committed a new release (1.4.4).  Please let me know if you run into any more trouble!

    Pepsibeth u made 1 WOW nerd very happy :+>> Hats off to you

  • #87

    Pepsibeth thanks a lot for the help, high five's coming your way!!!  Laughing

  • #86

    Thanks Pepsibeth worked real good!!... although I have found you can do almost the same thing with Shadowed Unit Frames (SUF) and Clique installed since SUF lets you see party targets also... it's harder to setup but more flexible in the long run.
