- For the Expert profession proficiency level, see Classic proficiency.
The expert is similar to a commoner, but they are well trained or perform a unique role in society. Experts are diverse, skilled, and less widespread than commoners. A village blacksmith who turns out horseshoes and iron pots is a commoner, while the king's swordsmith is an expert. The dwarven gemcutter, night elf herbalist, and Forsaken wilderness guide are all experts.
