There has been a lot of concern over this the last few weeks and some awkward/confusing enforcement.
I want to document the stance we are trying to enforce. By no means is swarm kiting banned or bannable, it is a very classic mechanic. Swarm kiting is defined by kiting mobs and either charming the pack down or doting the pack down.
The key is understanding the intent of this rule.

Enforcement will be by the general philosophies below:

If you want to kite 20 mobs from a single camp around and kill them that's fine.

However, what you may not do is monopolize a zone. The reasoning behind this is: It makes other people on the server. That want to XP avoid those zones which is unfair to them.

Some examples:

Werewolves in PoN is an acceptable camp to swarm; additional mobs in the swarm from around the area is not.

All of plane of valor is not.

The entire zone of Overthere is not acceptable.

Swarming the NE corner in Overthere is acceptable.

You can kite anything you want in your raid instance as the XP in those instances is turned down.

Enforcement will be on a case by case basis.

We are going to try something. To help combat swarming and the issues that some people have brought up, I have more than doubled the exp rates in instances. Named already do not spawn in instances, so this will let bards whom have guild instances to swarm their hearts content out without impacting others.

In other words, adhere to the swarm kiting rules above in non-instances but swarm the whole zone in your instance if you'd like.

This need a bump, and is starting to be abused again - We will start taking action on anyone abusing this rule again.
