Tool belt

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
(Redirected from Tool belt skill)
Jump to: navigation, search

The tool belt is a special ability exclusive to the engineer profession which adds up to five tool belt skills to engineer's arsenal, based on the equipped healing, utility and elite skills. Tool belt skills are activated by using the keys F1F5. Functionality for the F4 slot unlocks at level 19. 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 throw 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.
