    The mobs are the kite, you are the one running to make the kite fly.

    So... it's hit & run without the mob touching you.

    lol maybe because english isnt my native language, but i never knew kiting came from using a kite xD

    but yes basicly what he said. run in big circles, slow the enemys and damage only if you are at a safe distance.

    To add to this, and show off my old, unimportant knowledge of this terms creation:

    KIT used to refer to "Kill in Tow", meaning you tow something behind you (like a trailer) and kill it. Since most people pronounce it the same way as kite (like the toy) then people just associated the term with kiting enemies. Both versions are perfectly acceptable.
