I couldn't find it anywhere, so I thought I would post it here. In the tradeskills section, for each item you can create, there is a column for green and one for grey. Can anyone tell me what they mean? Are they the minimum and maximum levels that you can gain levels while creating them? Any info would be appreciated.

Orange recipes are guaranteed to give you a skill up, yellow recipes have a very good chance to, green recipes have a slight chance to, and grey recipes will never give you a skill up.

Each succesful skill up gives you one point in the skill. So if you make 74 orange color items, your skill will raise from 1 to 75.

Its not an auto skill rise, its about a 99% chance from what i notice. I have had a couple red (thats the color i set them to rather then orange) crafts that i made that didnt give the skill up. so, I belive its a 99% chance.

It's less than that, but I believe I also heard that was a bug and that orange items are *supposed* to always grant a skill-up.

As an aside, an orange recipe will never give you 74 skill-ups for 74 attempts because it won't stay orange. The color is indicative of it's relative difficulty for you. If you start off as an alchemist, minor healing potions will be orange for a while. After you gain some skill in alchemy, they'll eventually become yellow, then green, and finally gray. However by the time they become gray, there will be other recipes that you needed those skill points to learn in the first place, and they will more than likely be orange to start off with.
