Some Basic Tanking Terminology
Threat - This is the amount of attention you have from an enemy. If the enemy is paying the most attention to you, then they will attack you. You gain threat by dealing damage, healing yourself or others, and by using specific abilities.
Aggro - If you have the highest amount of threat, then you are said to have "aggro" on that particular enemy.
Pull - When combat is initiated against a group of enemies, it is considered "pulling" a group of enemies. As a tank, pulling enemies is your job and it lets you gain an initial amount of threat against the enemies so that you can maintain aggro on them.
Adds - "Adds" is short for "Additional Enemies" or something similar. It means any enemies you are engaging with in addition to your primary target. Usually, this term is used during boss fights and indicates any enemy you are engaged with that isn't the boss.
Patrol - Also called "Pat" for short, this term indicates any group of enemies that move through an area instead of staying in one place.
