I want to reclass Lucina to an archer. Doing so would remove her class C sword proficiency and replace it with class E in bows. But if I were to upgrade her to a bow knight later on, giving her the ability to use swords again, would she regain her C proficiency, or would she have to start over with E?

For classes that use the same weapon types (ie. Myrmidon to Swordmaster), they keep their proficiency. I don't know about re-classing into something completely different and then going back. – Frank Apr 3 '13 at 19:02

Yes, weapon proficiency is permanent to the character / unit, even if their current class doesn't allow them to use that weapon. When the character moves back into a class which allows use of that weapon, their previous proficiency level will be used.
