For the hunter pets ability, see Taunt (pet).

Taunt Can mean several things in World of Warcraft.

Aggro ManagementEdit

Main article: Aggro

Taunt can refer to the class abilities that allow players to attract attention of a mob. They include the following:

Other classes have high aggro abilities that generate set amount of threat. They include:

These abilities do not function identically. "True" taunts both force a mob to attack the taunter for a few second and give the taunter enough threat to top the aggro list. Other abilities (Challenging Roar and Shout, Mocking Blow) compel temporary attacks but do not give aggro; if the taunter fails to build aggro quickly, the monster will go back to its previous target when the effect expires. Still others merely generate a large chunk of threat, but do not compel mobs at all.

  • Taunts have no effect on player controlled characters (Death Grip has a partial exception in that it will still move a player's character, but will not force that character to attack the Death Knight.) Players' pets, however, CAN be taunted, allowing some level of Tanking to be applied to PvP situations.

Verbal DiscourseEdit

  • Using /yell to call members of the enemy force Bad Names during PvP Raids.
    • Note: The enemy force only see gibberish when you do this, so it tends to be a bit lost on them, but they get the general idea.
  • Using the slash command /taunt to show an animation and play a sound that would be spiteful to an enemy player. /chicken and /rude are similar.
  • Useful marcos include (but are not limited to):

/cast Challenging Shout

/y I slept with ALL your Mamas!


/cast Growl

/y I would have been your daddy, but a dog beat me over the fence!

(this will look to other players as though Mobs were responding to your insults)
