Default Tradeskill Caps

Do tradeskills cap at 5 per level like the majority of other skills? I'm thinking of skilling up blacksmithing for funsies but I'm not very high level yet.

Say for example: Can I be at 200 blacksmithing at level 1 if I desired?

I vaguely remember in Classic people having low level tradeskill masters, but my memory may be skewed from years of LSD and Jack Daniels.

Yes.

Blacksmithing, baking, tailoring, jewelrycrafting, pottery, and fletching are not level-capped. You can only raise one of those past 200.
(Recommended for cultural: Wood elves, halflings, and erudites do tailoring; high elves, ogres, dark elves, barbarians, humans, dwarves do smithing)

Poison-making is capped at 0 until level 20, when it can be raised to max cap. Rogue only.

Tinkering is level capped (gnome only). Alchemy is level capped (shaman only). Research is level capped (class specific int casters). These don't necessarily follow the standard level cap formula (level * 5 + 5). Check the wiki for more info.

Follow up question: What stat influences blacksmith tradeskill point gains for a Human Paladin?

INT? WIS?

Whatever is the highest stat between INT/WIS/STR for blacksmithing.

I could be wrong...

Research for the cloth casters appears to be

Maximum per level = ((current level - 15) * 5)

but since you cannot obtain this skill until level 16, if you train for it at level 16, you will default to 16. Any attempts to skill-up will not potentially gain you anything until you are at least level 19, where you maximum then becomes 20. From my meager attempts, it appears the first trivial spells are at 21. So if you wait until level 20 to train this skill, besides being set to having 20 in the skill, you are one point away from the first trivial spells.

I am not sure if you train this skill at a higher obtain level will it default to your current level or does it peak at a certain spot. That is, train at level 50 means you are set at 50?
