Respec is a term for respecialisation and refers to a game feature that allows players to partially or completely reallocate the points they have spent in various skills, 'talents', or 'attributes'.
How to Respec
Players in Diablo 4 will be able to respec their characters at any point on the game and reset skills on the skill trees. This is achieved by right-clicking on the skill as show below:
How to Refund All Skills
Skills will be able to be reset on a point by point bases or via "Refund All" button at the bottom of the skill trees.
Cost of Respeccing
The only requirement to respec skills is a cost in gold and is dependent on your skill level. The amount of gold players currently hold is indicated in the top left of the skill tree.
High Level Characters
As players level, the cost of respecing becomes more expensive. At a certain point, the cost was expected to become expensive and players were expected to actually re-roll their character from scratch. That is the theory at least but respeccing a full level 100 character is viable.
Ths costs of a full respec have been worked out for a level 100 character.
- Level 100 refund all 58 possible slill points: 4,358,642 Gold
- Level 100 refund all 225 Paragon Board points: 8,846,325 Gold
This may seem a lot but at higher levels running dungeons can net a lot of gold making it not cost prohibitive to respec at max level.
Level 50 and Below
Any character below level 50 and not made the move the move to World Tier 3 will find the cost of respeccing manageable and it's a these lower levels that players should be experimenting with their skills and not be afraid to experiment.
Selecting Skills to Respec
The beauty of the skill trees is the ability to respec individual skills in the tree including skills around them and pre-requisite skills. Players do not have to reset all their skills points (the option do so is there however).
Players can easily remove skilll points from any part of the tree as long as they point requirements are met for every skill category.
