The books say what the required Cultivation is. Also, the content guide mentioned the symbols for the skills. I really don't see how one would make the mistake of making the wrong skill. Not really against the idea but is it really that common to make the wrong skill?
chalked it up to my own stupidity.
TBH I think it is. I've done it so many times even on the normal book forges and they really don't sell well in the AH or anyplace else since skill books are easy to make. I for one hate wasting the mats but have just moved on from it and chalked it up to my own stupidity.
Well, this doesnt mean you're stupid. You just need to double check. I always do....just in case.
