    What is the minimum skill required to make these ? Anyone attempted to make and got the message that more skill is required ?

    You can make them with 300 skill and the Master (12%) artisan trophy.

    Speaking from experience, make sure you have the trophy before you drink your TS potion and find out you don't have enough skill and suddenly have to scramble to get all the parts to do the quest for the trophy.

    300 I expect. I have made a bunch of them and none of my TS skills are over 324ish (most are lower than that even). IIRC I made the JC kits with ~304 skill. Fletching kit was similar.

    Unmodified skill of 300 should be what's "required", if you are willing to bite the bullet of failure rates.
    I have done done some of them with just 300 plus whatever the recipes i had learned gave me (so, less than 310 unmodified) and had about 25% failure rate on those combines. Could've been luck though. Plus, the raid diamond is returned on failure, so it's only the pp you loose effectively.

    Even with skill maxed to 350 with a maxed trophy, the failure rate is still very high. In our guild we have 1 person with all maxed tradeskills make all the kits for folks and we usually make them in bulk with a potion running to get the most out of our diamonds. The fishing one (combine edging kit) is the worst and he said he saw 6 fails in a row, granted fishing has a lower cap.

    The diamond is returned on a failure though so it isn't that bad. You can get a crushed diamond, but it's pretty rare.

    With the potion running you still get the diamond back even when you get the crushed. Actually have 4 or 5 crushed sitting in bank now heh.

    I am 350 in the 7 basic tradeskills with max trophy. I did lose the diamond once and had the crushed diamond dust returned instead. So yeah that does happen even with max skill.

    I cannot make them with Tailoring (317) and Smithing (319) without my trophy

    It's a minimum of 1% chance to get an alt-fail on a fail. (If an alt-fail is set) It's 1 to 5% depending on your skill difference from the trivial. This is ONLY rolled on a fail.
