Macro to assist tank???
So, is it possible to do an assist on a roll and not a person?
Would it be:
/cast [pet:imp,@target,exists, assist:Tank] fire bolt

Will it let me make the pet assist the tank?
Warlocks have been having issues with our imp randomly attacking mobs that are in combat. The problem with this, is now that we can use Glyphed Fear as a cc, the imp will sometimes target that mob.
So, we've been coming up with a macro where the pet will go between passive and defensive depending on our spell cast.
So, it kinda occurred to me, what if I can have my imp just assist someone else and then I could target a different mob to cc without having to wonder if my imp will attack it. So, it was only natural to want to have the imp assist the tank.
You can use an AddOn like AssignedTankAssist - http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/assignedtankassist.aspx - to help you automatically update your macros to assist the LFD tank though.

That will have whatever target your 'maintank' (set by party/raid leader). Just make sure if you have any other tager code it is BEFORE the above target line.
 That is, IF you are in a party Again - no idea if this works. But something I've been working on to keep my pet attacking the tanks target.
