As soon as you play in a party, it is very useful to know which monster the tank is fighting. The /assist command makes the tanks target automatically become your own. This means that you can either aid them in killing this monster, or control the other monsters that are not currently engaged; as clicking randomly on the other monsters is neither easy nor efficient.

There are two ways to do this:

1. Using the keyboard:
a. Select the player to assist (with key F2 to F5)
b. Press the F key (which is bound to assist in the keyboard options)

2. Using the mouse
a. Make a /assist macro and put its icon in your action bar.
b. Click on the portrait of the character to assist. Then click on the icon of the macro in your action bar.
(You can also add the characters name to the macro command so that when pressed it always assists a particular character).
