Yes, you can get SP from other class abilities. I went from rank 17 to 18 Thaumaturge using Blizzard and Stone from Conjurer as my primary spells and go all kinds of skill points from them.

I too get plenty of SP using cross-class abilities. I use marauder skills on my gladiator without problems. To me, it seems that you get more skill points when you use different abilities rather than using the same ones over and over again, so perhaps you could try mixing it up a little bit more and see if that works for you?

As a conjurer I was getting a small amount of skillups (around 18) from using Slow (from THM) on enemies.

Level 20CON/14THM, my action bar is always right around a 50/50 split of CON and THM spells. I'm always paying pretty close attention to my combat log and I hardly ever get SP for using cross-class abilities. It has happened, but only on rare occasions.

I've only ever noticed this in one circumstance. I was a Gladiator, shield equipped, guard in use. I'd get "Block! ... Shield skill increased..", but occasionally I'd see a "Block! ... Sword skill increased..". I got confused as to how I was gaining sword skills for blocking, but then started paying attention to the animations. While you have your shield up you will normally block with the shield, but you can and will sometimes block with your weapon.

A few days later I had forgotten about this and was trying to get my Thaumaturge to 10 when I was momentarily confused by a "Block! ... Thaumaturge skill increased.."
