Illustrious[1][2] (also known as "Illustrious Grand Master") is the seventh stage of a profession learned at the appropriate profession trainer. One must be at least level 75 to learn an Illustrious profession skill. One exception is Trade fishing Fishing where you can become Illustrious as soon as you can catch enough fish to level up to it.

Profession skill levels fall into eleven stages of increasing ability to learn and execute recipes: Apprentice, Journeyman, Expert, Artisan, Master ( Bc icon), Grand Master ( Wrath-Logo-Small), Illustrious ( Cataclysm-Logo-Small), Zen Master ( Mists-Logo-Small), Draenor Master ( Warlords-Logo-Small), Legion Master ( Legion-Logo-Small), and Kul Tiran / Zandalari Master ( Battle-Logo-Small).

Change in Battle for Azeroth Edit

The progression bars have changed so that after the base game each expansion has a separate progression bar for points unlike before which had a single bar:[3]

In the Beta, Secondary Professions still have the old full bar so this may remain the same in the pre-expansion patch

Notes Edit

  • Not counting any racial or other bonuses, at a skill level of 425[citation needed] you can learn the Illustrious stage and gain up to a maximum of 525 points.[1][2]
  • Starting with Battle-Logo-Small Battle for Azeroth pre-patch, this proficiency range will have its own progress bar of 75 points.
