How to Respec Skills and Ranks in Diablo 4

Given the complexity of the new skills and passives system, players will no doubt make some mistakes and wrong choices for their builds. Luckily, if you ever make a mistake or you feel that you can optimize your build better, there’s the Diablo 4 Respec system. This time around, it will not be necessary to visit a specific NPC in order to respec. Rather, you will be able to respec directly from your skill tree. Diablo 4 offers the option to respec and reset skills by simply opening the Skill Tree and pressing the “Refund All” button at the bottom of the skill tree. This will immediately reset your skill tree, and you will get back all your skill points.

What’s even more convenient with the new system is that you don’t need to respec everything if you don’t want. Rather, you are also able to reset skills on a point-by-point basis. Each skill point spent on a skill, skill rank, upgrade, or passive bonus can be separately refunded. To do this, select or hover over a skill and then right-click on it to refund a skill point.

How Much Respec Costs in Diablo 4

Of course, respeccing is not free in Diablo 4; you will need to pay for it with gold. At the start of the game, respec is free until Level 7. After that, the price of a single Skill Point refund will gradually go up with each new level. At some point on higher levels, respec costs will become extremely expensive. Blizzard states that this is because they want “your choices to matter” and players to value the time and effort spent on building a character.

The idea is for respec to be affordable at lower levels when you are experimenting and making mistakes but to be significantly harder to do it in later stages of the game. Finally, when it comes to respeccing your stats and attributes, this is not currently available. You will only be able to respec your skill points in Diablo 4, not your stats.

Later, he became a predominantly PC gamer who enjoys narrative-driven RPGs, real-time strategies, and psychological/survival horror games. Nevertheless, he appreciates any game that's worth his time.With over 12 years of experience in esports & gaming journalism, I like to think that my guides once helped a NASA scientist to beat a game. What I'm trying to say is that I should be credited for NASA's Mars missions. (I'm just kidding, please don't shoot me). In my free time, I dream of the day when I will finally start clearing my Steam backlog.
