Provoke is one of the actions a creature can take in combat. A provoking creature attempts to force attacking enemies to target it rather than its allies. When an enemy attacks while a creature is provoking, there is a 65% chance that the attack will target the provoking creature, ignoring the target chosen by the attacker. If the provoking creature has the Taunt buff, this becomes a 100% chance. A provoking creature suffers a penalty to its Defense.

The Stronghold is a natural for this role, since its Steadfast Resilience ability both negates the Defense penalty and gives it Taunt at all times.
