Auto-targeting is a targeting paradigm for abilities that does not require any targeting input from the user upon activation; instead, they, as their name suggests, automatically select one or more valid targets in range or a valid area of effect when they are activated.

Point blank autotargeted abilities that do not affect the user such as Starcall Starcall are distinct from the typical point blank area of effect spell in that they cannot be cast while no valid targets are in range.

There are two subcategories for autotargeted abilities: fully autotargeted abilities use the targeting type exclusively and require no direct input from the user whatsoever. Semi-autotargeted abilities require an initial input upon cast but a portion of the ability will autotarget itself afterwards using the selected area or enemy as an anchor.
