I've had the feeling at times that taunts on my powertech are slow. But there can be many possibilities. I've never actually checked if the debuff shows up instantly, as I hit 50 recently.

Just a quick copy from combat log of TFB. Anyone able to supply a log of a sin and a jugg with simular info?

Some taunts take ~0.1sec, some ~0.2sec, which is proof there isn't one set time for the taunt to have effect. Note that these are random copies, I have no clue at what range they were used. Some more testing would be needed to conclude it has a direct correlation to the range where the taunt is used.

Might it just that the target-of-target is slow at updating? Or that your target finishes its current attack before target-of-target updates?

Also, if there was such differences between the taunts of different classes - would BioWare not fix it? Having a slower taunt is a very big disadvantage for a class.

Also, my maintank (a jugg) once said something about his taunts having travel-delay when learning a new jugg EC HM kephess, in order to execute last phase perfectly. This I cannot back up with any logs or facts tho, only that one statement. But based on this I believe all classes are simular in terms of taunt-delays.
