Some skills can be toggled without auto-selecting a target such as the warrior's Whirlwind skill. When toggling single target skill without a objective, the skill will auto lock to the closest valid target. In the case of a buff, when not selected on an ally, it will automatically target you.

Using a skill will trigger a global cooldown (1 sec.) during which you can't use other skills.
