Kiting is a technique that can be used to combat slow moving mobs without taking much damage.
It can prove to be very beneficial when attempting to take down powerful enemies like the Grand Shaman.
Kiting is usually performed with a weapon with long range, like the Long Sword. Basically,you run away from the target mob, wait for the mob to take a swing, then turn around and hit it. This process can be repeated multiple times. If performed well, it will help you defeat the mob with minimal damage.
