Toolbox is a term used to describe characters who take skills that are mission-essential for the party, but for which the party doesn't have any bar compression room elsewhere. For example, in many Heroes' Ascent builds not featuring Warriors or Paragons, Elementalists will carry the necessary "Make Haste!" and Song of Concentration, though the skills don't assist the Elementalist in filling their primary role as a damage dealer. In Urgoz Warren, an ritualist with Edge of Extinction is only used against the final boss, but is otherwise useless for the entirety of the dungeon. Other examples included Rangers with Rend Enchantments, Pure Was Li Ming, or Ward Against Foes and Grasping Earth.
