As it stands, #bot offtank sends what the game considers the best off-tank in your raid/group to go offtank your target. The bot offtanks for a few and then returns to the main target. The problem I find is that whatever target you want offtanked will shortly return to attacking non-tanks (healers/slowers typically), requiring constant #bot offtank commands; this gets tedious or difficult depending on the number of adds.

Is it possible to make the #bot offtank command work so that the bot *stays* on whatever target is being offtanked, rather than swapping back to the main target?

I really appreciate these higher level reports because I fix what I see as I am playing and I don't yet have a character higher than 30.
You do a great job at describing the behavior and from that I'm able to look at the code and immediately see how it might be fixed.

The test fix is in for tonight's build. Let us know how it works.

If you have an assigned Secondary Tank, it does give that tank a bit more weight in deciding the offtank.

Cong, that sounds great! Thank you for the expedient work.

I do indeed keep a secondary tank marked and I've also noticed it usually picks my hybrid tanks (Pally and SK) before it would pick my secondary tank (warrior #2 for my raid). Will watch it next time I raid after reboot.

So this fix didn't get in until a few days later. Any feedback?

Haven't done much in-game recently, I will keep an eye out on it.

This appears to be working better. I never bugged it because it always provided a sense of taking care of your army in situations where off-tanking was needed!
