All skillbooks will be of the elemental element except for Blood Rain (which is necromancy) and all infusions (which are summoning).
All skillbooks require level 1 in each of the two skills needed to make them, except Corrosive Spray which requires level 2 in each.
Information provided on what the skills do is a summary of the tooltip, rather than actual ability use. In many cases the tooltip is a little vague.
Most amusing combination award goes to erratic wisp which you should use on your allies constantly.
