Being proficient with a weapon, shield or armor means you can use it without incurring the non-proficiency penalties. Proficiencies are obtained through feats, either given at Player Character creation or during advancement.

If a Player Character is not proficient with a weapon or shield, the icon of that item will have a yellow border and an exclamation mark will be displayed on top of the icon as well.

Proficiency feats[edit]

Every class gives your Player Character proficiencies in weapon and armor usage. Weapon proficiencies are split into simple, martial, and exotic. Armor is divided into light armor, medium armor, heavy armor, and shields. If you do not have the correct proficiency then you suffer a non-proficiency penalty when using the item.
