How do you target the target of your current target (assist target) with a controller? The default keyboard/mouse key is T.


Ha! Found a way!

Go to the System configuration menu > Gamepad settings and start Button configuration:

Then, select any button to bind Assist target, for example, Right Thumb-click:

As far as I know, there currently isn't a button mapping to assist-target directly via controller.

However, the same can be accomplished via a macro, which can then be assigned to your cross hotbar:

  • /assist (or /as) will assist your current target.

  • /assist "Player Name" (or /as "Player Name") will assist a player by name.

  • /assist <2> (or /as <2>) will assist the party member in party slot 2. (Useful if you tend to re-order your party list to put, say, the main tank in a specific slot.) You can change the number to any other slot, as well.

  • Why a macro? You can definitely set this directly in the options. – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Apr 18 '14 at 15:51

    @BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft If you know of a way to bind "assist target" to a controller button, then by all means, post an answer. – CloudyMusic Apr 18 '14 at 16:01
  • Due to Square-Enix's horrible, horrible support, I don't have access to the game anymore (despite paying for a subscription), so I can't give specific instructions. But I know this can be bound without a macro because I've done it. It's under 'Targeting' in the keybind menu. – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Apr 18 '14 at 16:28
  • @BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft On a keyboard, yes, absolutely. But with a controller, that'd be news to me. – CloudyMusic Apr 18 '14 at 16:40
  • Oh, I didn't realize the key-binding screens were different for the two. My mistake, then. – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Apr 18 '14 at 17:47
