Implement Expertise is an expertise feat.

Adventurers with this feat first choose an implement. They gain a +1 feat bonus to attack rolls with any implement power used through that type of implement, increasing to +2 at 11th level, and +3 at 21st level.

This feat is obsolete, as it provides no secondary bonus granted by other expertise feats. See below for one of several alternatives.


  • The December 2011 update changed the bonus from untyped to a feat bonus, and moved the increases from levels 15 and 25 to 11 and 21.
