Tool belt

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The tool belt is a special ability exclusive to the engineer profession which adds up to four tool belt skills to engineer's arsenal, based on the equipped utility and heal skills. Tool belt skills are activated by using the keys F1-F4. Functionality for the F4 slot unlocks at level 19.[1] Each of the skills equipped into the healing or utility skill bar slots fill one of the tool belt skill slots with another skill, such as ability to throwing an elixir instead of drinking it, triggering turrets to self-destruct, or other gadgets. Using a tool belt skill has no inherent effect on the corresponding healing or utility skills (such as triggering recharge time), and vice versa. All healing and utility skills, including racial skills, have tool belt skills available to the engineer.
