No Respecing???That sucks!
Is there any way to respec my characters? I saw in the beta that was possible how do you do that now?

It was in the beta. Backers wanted it removed

Respecing is one thing, but why the ♥♥♥♥ is there no confirmation of your choice? Lost skillpoints at first because I clicked the wrong skill and didn't want to reddo a tough battle.

They should have at least put an apply button in there instead of immediatly locking a skill on selecting it. I wasted a skillpoint because it was unclear to what skills were already learned and which could be learned.

Also the text in the skill screen makes it out that there is a way to reset skillpoints but not in character creation. So I did also pick a few skills to see what they did and how they would work in my builds. But now I am stuck with it and I rather don't want to restart after several hours just because I did picked a wrong skill on accident.

Huh? Which dumbass backer wanted it removed?

Respec is such an important thing in this game, heck, i wont mind if it cost some money to respec.

They also wanted saves to only be in the Adventurer's Guild, like the originals

Yeah it ruins customisation and trying out new builds. I get using a token or something but 0 respecing is a bit too much IMHO.

Help Devs!

The problem in beta was that respecs was infinite and free. So basicly, you wanted to craft something? Respec a character to pure crafting, craft, then respec him back to combat.

So people argued that the 'free respecs all the time' model wasn't working and that they needed to limit it somehow.

It would seem they instead went the total opposite route then, instead of finding the golden middle road.

The hell! People solved this issue a long time ago, by putting a token cost to respec and maybe increasing the cost each time someone respec.


Couldnt that be done here, instead let's go the other extreme direction...WTF?
Azsh Sep 19, 2018 @ 8:33am 
Crap I am going to restart then!
Azsh Sep 19, 2018 @ 8:40am 
So there is another thread that says you can use mercenary tokens to respec but noone has verfied that....I still might restart as the tokens are for hiring sell swords/making new characters.

It makes no sense to be able to respec whenever you want - people would just respec to fit whatever situation they faced. Some kind of restriction was needed (money/xp/token) but no-one called for a complete bar on it.

Wait there is no respecing at all? Man people were saying you could respec with tokens (makes sense since they are limited) so I made some choices thinking I could at worst respec this entire time.

They really needed to make that clear if it was totally removed as I would of done skills quite differently.

No repsecing at all is stupid. I can understand limited respecs, or you can only repsec in a certian locations, but none at all? Terrible idea for a game.

well the mercenary tokens are basically a respec in a way as you can create another character from the ground up one with one set of skills that are different from others. yes it is still set in stone once complete but you get 4 right away practically so it is not a big hurt.
A developer of this app has indicated that this post answers the original topic.
