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.

Skill types[edit | edit source]

There are different categories of skills:

  • Direct Damage: A skill that causes an enemy target to receive damage once, immediately.

  • Heal: A skill that restores your health or an ally target's health either directly or over time. Also known as a HoT
  • Buffs: A skill that increases a statistic of a friendly target or yourself for a duration, e.g. faster movement speed.
  • Debuffs: A skill that decreases a statistic of an enemy target for a duration, e.g. reduced armor, reduced healing.
