Can a familiar use a Help action to grant advantage on an Attack to a near by ally?
As I understand it, a familiar can aid in any action it can take itself. But by the spell Find Familiar, a normal familiar cannot attack. Is it correct that by extent a familiar thus cannot Help an Attack action?
Superior Warlock familiars (Pact of the Chain) can attack if the Warlock gives up her attack action to grant the familiar an attack.
Additionally, when you take the Attack action, you can forgo one of your own attacks to allow your familiar to make one attack of its own with its reaction. (SRD p. 46)
Can a superior familiar Help in an Attack action? If so, would the Warlock be required to use an action to allow the familiar to Help?
Are their any official errata or posts related to the above?
It is commonly explained that the familiar is aiding by distracting an opponent rather than attacking themselves. But I didn’t find an explicit answer to this question, so I’m posting it here. Similar questions listed are:
