Trader's Tier

Wall-mounted building

The Trader's Tier is the area of the Exodar containing most of the trainers and vendors. This area houses various non-magic craftsmen and merchants, and also the Guild Master and tabard seller. Scattered around the floor are engineering, mining, blacksmith, skinning, leatherworking, and tailoring trainers, as well as Dugiru the Alliance Cloth Quartermaster. Slightly up the stairs is the Hunter's Sanctum, with hunter trainers, and at the top of the ramp is a circular platform called the Ring of Arms with warrior and monk trainers and Handiir the weapon master.

The naaru helped build the Exodar, and M'iri designed the Trader's Tier, shaping it to attract talented tradesfolk. There's also a mural of M'iri, made from brightly colored glass. After the Fourth War, the district was visited by Zekhan and Rexxar. Noticing the Exodar's system, the troll ambassador thought that some Horde engineers would surely want to get their hands on the contraptions.[1]
