AA - Single Target - This will summon a pet that will attack your target generating Hate in large amounts - when the pet despawns it transfers that hate to you.

Hate's Attraction:
http://www.raidloot.com/Spells.aspx?name=hate%27s+attraction
AA - Single Target - This will generate a large amount of hate and if the mob is lower level than you, will fling them to your position.  Mobs even or higher will generate the hate, but they will be immune to the fling.

Ageless Enmity:
http://www.raidloot.com/Spells.aspx?name=ageless+enmity
AA - Single Target - This is a 100% success rate taunt. This will make you the top aggro, and put you 6000 points of hate (rank 4) above the previously most hated target.  This is a true taunt.

Mindless Hatred:
http://www.raidloot.com/Spells.aspx?name=Mindless+hatred
AA - Single Target - This is not a taunt. This will only force the mob to attack you for a short time. If you intend to keep the mob beyond the time limits of this spell, you will need to use a true taunt to make yourself top aggro, or use other aggro abilities to overcome the aggro of the previous most hated target.

Unflinching Acrimony:
http://www.raidloot.com/Spells.aspx?name=unflinching+acrimony
Disc - Single Target - This is not a taunt. This will only force the mob to attack you for a short time.  If you intend to keep the mob beyond the time limits of this spell, you will need to use a true taunt to make yourself top aggro, or use other aggro abilities to overcome the aggro of the previous most hated target.

Harm Touch:
http://www.raidloot.com/Spells.aspx?name=48691
AA - Single Target - While not a taunt or a hate generating spell specifically - this aa will give you a large amount of aggro.

And lastly - Taunt:
This is the skill you can find under the skills button on your inventory page. Create a hotkey and keep it handy.

If you are an SK and assigned to pick up and tank a mob, you should always be casting. Cast more hate spells, cast more damage spells.  Cast, Cast, Cast.  Your lifetaps cause more hate due to damage done. Your spears are great aggro. Your terrors should remain on cooldown while tanking.  Impose should be continuously ticking on the mob.

My specific hotkey for tank swap pickups:
/alt activate 10392     <- Ageless Enmity
/alt activate 822         <- explosion of hatred
/alt activate 749         <- explosion of spite
/cast 2                       <- Top level terror
/alt activate 9400       <- Hate's Attraction

All the above is instant cast.  The result would be a true taunt and +6000, +12000, +12000, +13410, +18000 = 61410 hate generated by the abilities alone.  That is before the + hate mod from your mask, and the + hate mod from bold attacks and the + hate mod from VoT/holmein if you have it up.

The above can be followed by Projection of doom and veil of darkness for another large chunk of hate.


Please read up and understand what your taunt/hate generating spells do so you can succeed at getting a mob and holding it.
