oh boy. time for another fanmade update.
CORE MECHANIC REWORK:
TAUNT will now have use in PVP battles!
When a creature uses a taunting ability, the opposing creature will always do 1x damage no matter the ability it uses, even if the ability normally does no damage. this changes with attack increases/decreases, though. if the taunted creature has 50% ferocity, it will do 1.5x damage, 50% distract would do 0.5x damage, etc. bleed and rend would not be affected by taunt. there are some ways to remove taunt. any abilities that already remove taunt will still remove it. i.e. nullifying, fierce, defense shattering, and definite abilities. taunt resistance will still work the same way. however, taunt will not be cleansable. you cannot use cleansing to remove taunt. any ability used when taunted would still have the same effects, it would just do 1x damage. in raids, this new function would be added to the already existing function.
each taunting move will get tweaked to reflect this change.
devastation, dig in taunt, instant invincibility taunt, shielded taunting strike, side flap, swap in invincibility, taunt shattering rampage, taunting bellow, taunting rampage, taunting vulnerability: taunts for 1 turn, 2 attacks.
group taunting shields, group taunting shields strike, swap in defense, taunting shields: taunts for 2 turns, 4 attacks.
