    How many respec?

    Hi there
    So did I understand it correctly, there are only two respec, one in normal the other in hell, both in act 1 ?
    No way to "buy" a respec from somewhere else? Thanks for help

    there's a third "free" respec in NM as well

    And you can "buy" additional respecs by creating Tokens. You make Tokens by cubing up 4 different color Essences, and Essences drop from the act bosses.

    Oh by the way, I've read that the drop rate of these essences is roughly 1/13.
    Do they drop only in Hell?

    Only in hell. Andariel and Duriel drop the same essence BTW... which is good, as nobody really wants to farm Duriel because it's too bothersome to find out the right tomb without a durimule.

    I don't really understand why Akara grants the respec reward. You are typically L3-5 after solving the Den quest in normal mode, what would it be good for then? IMO it should have been added to the Nihlathak quest reward, i.e. in addition to naming an item.

    A small note: although you can technically get infinite respec tokens they are by no means trivial to obtain. They go for pul on my realm (EUSCL) which is about the same as most good uniques, or to find one yourself would involve running hell baal and diablo a reasonable number of times.

    Just going to there for the tokens makes no sense, of course, but if you do act boss runs for MF, you will find more than you need. Since I gathered five of each from Andariel and Mephisto, I leave further ones on the ground, for example, and it will be the same with Diablo and Baal as soon as I start MFing these two to a greater extent.

    This way even classic players also get to respec their characters, it would be hard for them if it was in act 5.

    Good point. It could also have been a reward for defeating Diablo, given by Tyrael. Or Diablo could drop special tokens which are bound to the characters who got the quest.

    Plus you can get tokens and depends how many respecs you need to use. best to respec to be strong enough to handle hell like nothing. Final respec is when you have both 20 stat torch and anni.

    That's right. I stopped picking them up after I had 5 of them.

    Re: How many respec?

    Are there any issues with the respec, such as not recieving the correct quest reward bonus' to stats/skills? I've asked in game and recieved the usual silence from people, so apologies for bumping an old thread with a Q.

    Re: How many respec?

    I haven't heard of any discrepancies, but you can try that with an unused character. If all quests are done, it's as follows:

    Skill points = level + 11
    Stat points = 5*level + 10
