Thank you for the feedback. I don't know with certainty to say you're wrong on this, but based on my experience trade skills at lower levels skilled up much more frequently than they seem to do now when I do combines in the 170s. Maybe I misunderstood your example?

I have been raising tailoring for about a year now I'm at 248. I would say a hundred combines at average 6 to 8, the worst I saw was 2 out of a hundred combines the best I got was 10.

Default Tradeskills

One final question from me. Sorry if this is a little thread jacking.

For tailoring, which recipe is the least expensive to chase skill ups at the high levels? Assuming you're needing to buy resources through EC tunnel? Is there one or two that stand out?

Tradeskills - is this normal?

Nope, definitely not cool or normal.

Oh yes, sorry I said that poorly. I guess I should have prefaced what I said with "At any given skill level, ....". But yes it is most certainly easier to get skillup #2 than it is to get #200 [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

I'm pretty sure he's wrong. You have much higher chance of raising skill on a successful combine than on a fail, therefore lower trivial items will result in more successful crafts and overall more skill ups. The only reason to grind on super high, relative to your skill, trivials is if the combine is simpler, cheaper, or otherwise easier to mass produce like if you had a glut of materials for it.

That's half of it. I believe the INT/WIS part comes in on likelihood to raise skill on a fail. Dalden had an amazing post awhile back detailing all this in much more detailed detail. But that's how I remember it.
