Each of the engineer's healing, utility, and elite skills has an associated tool belt skill—equipping a skill in slots 6 – 10 will automatically place the associated skill in the corresponding tool belt slot. These skills are listed in the healing, utility and elite tables below underneath their associated primary skill.
