Tools are assorted utility items which have a variety of uses.
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 don't break 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.
Repair kits can be used to repair damaged armor. All repair kits can be used on any level of armor, but lower level kits are less effective on higher level gear.

Soul Gems are used to recharge weapon enchantments, and also to 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 now be used for recharging and resurrecting.
Crown Soul Gems
Deprecated Soul Gems
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.]
Within the game, various tools are used as weapons and armor by NPCs. Some of them are available to players as items or outfit styles, while almost all of them can be cosmetically used by players in Emotes.
