A taunt is a skill that increases the amount of hate an aggressive target has towards a combatant. Think of it as a threatening gesture or look that provokes or goads a target into acting more and more aggressively towards a combatant until that combatant is the sole target of their hate, to the exclusion of other available targets. Normally tanks use taunts. Tanks are fighters. Many tanks have 2-6 taunts. There are sometimes emotes that the character will use with a taunt.
