This is a list of core engineer skills. For additional skills available to engineer's elite specializations, see:

Profession mechanic[edit]

Tool belt skills are the engineer's profession mechanic, occupying the F1 - F5 slots above the skill bar. 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.
