I picked up good pieces of a set that only works with taunts and I keep trying to use a taunt skill on this assassin named snickers and he keeps attacking my healer anyway, are assassins just easily avoiding taunts or is this concept just a waste in cryodil?

    What set are you talking about? I don't think Snickers is doing anything special, probably what you are trying does not work in PvP.

    To my knowledge:

    Tremorscale = procs off Taunt in PvP

    Vanguard's Challenge = procs off Taunt in PvP

    Curse of Doylemish = does not proc off Taunt in PvP - requires Stun or Immobilization

    Claws of Yolna = no clue. I assume it works in PvP

    Undaunted Bastion = probably works in PvP, you might be the first to ever try it honestly

    Vykosa = supposedly works in PvP, but you're probably better off with another defensive Monster Set unless you are strictly trying to debuff for your teammates' benefit, in which case you're better off with Thurvokun, unless you are using Talons or some other source of Minor Maim. If I were strictly trying to "tank" in PvP for my teammates' benefit, overall I would pick Lord Warden.

    Tormentor = should work in PvP to activate any set which procs off Taunt in PvP. Will not proc Doylemish

    However many good pvp'ers uses the (OP) block function or put their status to offline, making them pretty much immune to taunts.

    Excessive jumping or emotes sometimes work too, but most veteran players usually have pretty high resistance against that as well.

    Funny. I read it as if you have a 100% straight face.

    In PVP you can proc effects off of using a taunt skill on someone but, unlike PVE, you cannot control who they attack.

    To taunt someone in PVP you can start by insulting their parentage, perhaps with alleged f0rnication. You could also try pressing the crouch button repeatedly while looking at them from across a field. Useful in game emotes include /sweep, /teatime, and /goutfang. Unfortunately players do not respond favorably to in game taunts.

    They are wild, unpredictable creatures.

    I have found in PvP, the most effective taunt is using the /kissthis emote.

    You can taunt players, but they would not be forced to attack you.

    There is a aoe taunt in pvp. Range is line of sight and this is not a joke. Use a build that can get away with walking around ~%50 hp and everyone will focus you. Good players will stop after a while.
