It focuses the enemies attack on whoever cast the spell.

Taunt is an Ice spell that draws enemy aggro~ meaning that you'll be seen as a bigger threat by the enemy you're fighting, and they'll attack you instead of the others in your group.

The reason this is an Ice spell is because they were built to take damage~ when combined with their massive health and resistance to... well, everything... this will draw the attention towards the Ice wizard and away from his/her more-vulnerable teammates.

I don't know if KI replies to stuff like this, but I hope this answer will suffice. ;)

Happy trails,

Well for starters it does absolutley no effect in PVP. In PVE it makes the enemy attack you, and reducing the threat makes them not.

The taunt spell is used when you want who to cast it on, to attack you. I know why would you want them to attack you but my minion uses it which helps me usually heal or prepare to attack without losing any more health from them attacking me so they usually go after my minion.

Also it helpful when playing with others who might be waiting to heal themselves or prepare to attack by taunting them to attack you so your teammates stay safe while waiting for pips or to heal.

It doesn't always work that way with my minion since sometimes he will use it and they still attack me but does help most of the time.

Hope this helps explain it a little bit.

You forgot to add, taunting works on PVP ONLY on minions cast by the opposition.
