There's no noticeable difference...?

Kiting is the act of making the mobs follow you in a circle to reduce damage received. Used in GM, mainly.

Tanking is taking the damage and healing to hold aggro.

EDIT: In GM, you're Tanking, but you kite the mobs.

I still don't see how people mix the two up.

kiting/kiter, like aggro/aggroer, is an incorrect term people use to describe a tank.

I know aggro is one improper word referring to a tank, but I didnt know kiter was also one

So basically in Greens the TANK does KITE monsters to reduce damage right? Well, i don't think Kite is improper though, it basically means the same I think

Kiting is more like a role that a tank performs.

They're still incorrect terms used by the ignorant, or the ones that refuse to learn the terminology. Aggro is what you receive from dealing damage or healing crewmates. Kiting is running the mobs around to reduce damage.

To even refer to the Tank as anything else shows one's lack of willingness to be correct, or seem less ignorant.

inb4 people b***h, whine and moan and try to say they're not ignorant

The person with the aggro, the animated will follow them like a kite on string, one would do this to avoid damage. Hence the name kite. Not everyone knows what the terms means or where they come from, I agree with mage people are ignorant.
