This article is about items with practical use throughout your adventures in Tamriel. For the collectibles with practical use, see Tools (Collectible).

Tools are assorted utility items that have a variety of uses.

LockpicksEdit

Lockpicks are used to pick locks on chests and doors. They are found in containers everywhere and can stack up to 200. Lockpicks can be used many times if you're careful enough when picking locks and avoid breaking them. Pressing a tumbler for too long increases the chances of breakage, and the difficulty of the lock also has an effect. If you force a lock, you will always break a pick.

Soul GemsEdit

Soul Gems are used to recharge weapon enchantments or resurrect yourself or other players who have fallen in combat. Normally, these are found as Soul Gem (Empty) and can be filled by using the Soul Trap spell or the Soul Lock passive ability. Once filled, they can be used for recharging and resurrecting.

Crown Soul GemsEdit

Crown Soul Gems can be purchased from the Crown Store or received via Crown Crates or Daily Rewards. They are always pre-filled, but they are otherwise identical to standard Soul Gems.

Deprecated Soul GemsEdit

Prior to Update (?), there was a range of soul gems at different levels. Afterwards, all Grand Soul Gems were renamed to simply "Soul Gem", and the lesser ones became useless.[verification needed — Or could they still be used? I forget.]
