    Question about 1.13 Respec

    So the patchnotes say that you are award 1 respec with den of evil quest.

    Does that mean that you can have 3 respecs (1 per difficulty) or only 1 respec overall?

    Both =^^=
    Already completed... 1 respec in Hell-Mode!
    Skipped (All 3) or a new character will have 3 *Per-Mode*!

    I don't understand that post.

    When starting a new character, you will get 3 respecs, one in normal, one in nightmare, one in hell and you can make use of them whenever you like, in any order. Characters who solved the Den quests before the reset will get a single respec in from hell Akara.

    Two 1.13 respec questions:

    Does the respec work on attribute points too?

    And can you gain more respecs than the 3 from the Den of Evil quests?

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    1. Yes
    2. Yes, through a special cube recipe, involving special components.

    See the 1.13 sticky for more information.

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    I only played a bit 1.13a but no 1.13b. In 1.13b do you really get 1 respec per den of evil?

    Notes on respecs for 1.13b:
    - Respecialization is now possible! Completing the 'Den of Evil' quest
    will now additionally reward 1 free respec which can be saved. Players
    who have already completed this quest should receive 1 free respec in
    Hell difficulty.


    The wording is a bit weird, I think you only get 1 respec on hell difficulty now and that's it. (not counting the boss drops recipe) Anyone has a backup of 1.13a patch notes? I think it was more clear in 1.13a but i don't really remember.

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    But what does finally is "respec"? You can redraw ALL your skill points assignement, or only one/part of them? Sorry, but my english is a bit poor

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    From what Ive learned, the respec resets all attribute and talent points.

    You get 3 free respecs, 1 per den of evil quest done.

    To gain more, you must cube together 4 different essences from Hell difficulty act bosses.

    Duriel and andariel drops the same essence, and the remaining 3 act bosses drops their own each. Simply cube them together to create the token.

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    I think this is a GREAT idea!! Really GREAT... I can play my game until level 50th and at that point I can "switch" to my final build! I think about some builds that require to save point till higher levels to be effective, but to do that you have an unplayable chars for early levels and need to be babysitted...
    Really really good

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    Unfortunately, the possibility of respecs opens up a whole new can of worms. I'm wondering if any bugs with it have been reported? Imagine, for instance, that respecs fail to give you back the skill points for Den of Evil/Radament/Izual, the life for Golden Bird, or the stat points for the Lam Esen Tome? And imagine if there's a bug that allows you to gain any of those rewards a second time, or an infinite number of times, for the cost of one respecialization?

    Perhaps even Blizzard understands how devastating such bugs would be... but given their track record (like with the ethereal bug) there may yet be something weird in the new patch.

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    Cant see why golden bird might be a problem, since its a static health bonus of +20 life per difficulty.

    Only possible issues with black tome and the skillpoint qs.

    I really don't mind at all... I'm playing a 10 years old game... I'm impressed that their still making patch... and if it will be bugged... ok, **** happen!

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    To be clear, new chars will get 1 respec for each Den in each difficulty

    The confusing patch notes, as I read it, will apply only to NL/SP/Open chars that have already completed all 3 Den quests; they'll get one reset from Hell Akara.

    As no chars on the new ladder, of course, will have already completed all 3 Dens before the patch goes live, it doesnt apply to them.

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    I'm not sure about this but I'm thinking it'll be okay.

    I think the respec will take however given stat points and skill points you have put in and just gives them back. I tried it on the PTR with the den of evil. Was level 3 and put 2 skill pts + 1 den of evil skill pt into warmth. Respeced and gave all 3 back as well as stat points. I believe it'll do the same with stat points regarding lam esen tome.

    As for the Golden Bird life, I think that is added on to your base HP (before vitality is calculated)... so lets say you have 100 hp base health and with vital you have 200 and with the Golden Bird potion 220...when you respec, you will have 120.

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    I certainly wouldn't rule out the possibility of bugs, but coding this shouldn't be that difficult. The database the game uses to save characters should have an easy time tracking which quests you've done. For instance, when you activate the respec, the game looks and sees that you are a level 30 character (29 skill points) and you've completed normal Den/Rad/Izual, so it gives you 32 skill points. It wouldn't reset those "flags" in the database, so I fail to see how this should be a problem. Anything is possible, but it seems unlikely.

    *Note: I am a Software Engineer, so I have some expertise, but I have no knowledge of how their software works. I can only speak from my own experiences.

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    I have a Normal (single player) paladin who completed the Den quest.. I was going to try it out on him, but he's not getting any respec from Akara.
    But my other Hell characters all have the respec reward.

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    It's not that hard for the game to keep track of how many skill and stat points you have gained. It'd probably be harder to distinguish between the points gained from quests and the ones gained from leveling.

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    But why would it even need to distinguish between quest skill points and normal leveling? It simply takes all skill points that you have used(whether by quest or leveling) and give the equivalent amount of free skill points.

    Re: Question about 1.13 Respec

    Stupid question: how do you respec? I didn't see any respec button in the stat/skill/quest tabs.

    edit: nevermind, I figured it out - you talk to Akara.

    Hi,

    Is this bit:

    "To gain more, you must cube together 4 different essences from Hell difficulty act bosses."

    ..still true?

    Cheers
