I know each trainer can only train you up to a certain level in their skill:

  • Common: Up to 50
  • Expert: Up to 75
  • Master: Up to 90

Aside from this, does it make a difference which level trainer I go to? Will training with a Master trainer give me more XP than a Common trainer?


Two minor considerations:

  1. Certain trainers can become followers, which basically means you can get free training by training and then opening up their inventory to take back your gold.
  2. Some trainers requires you to join their guild before granting you training.

Other than that, who you are training with has no affect on xp or cost.

  • And some trainers are merchant, so you can get your money back by trading. – user470365 Dec 28 '11 at 1:02
  • @yx Is there a list somewhere of all the follower-trainers? – Iszi Dec 30 '11 at 17:25
  • @Iszi not that I know of, but you can pull up a list of trainers and a list of followers and cross correlate. – l I Dec 30 '11 at 20:51
  • @Iszi Faendal is on example. – Jim Jones Feb 11 '16 at 4:05

The only difference between the trainer's is how high they are able to train you. Each advancement gives you some xp, regardless of how it improves.
