Knowing how to respec a character in Diablo 4 will let you experiment with builds and try different things out without being permanently tied to your choices. It's a hugely useful ability as there a lot of different skills to unlock in Diablo 4, and with so many combinations available you can't always tell what will and won't suit you.
But how do you actually go about doing it? I've got full details on the Diablo 4 respec process below, so you can take complete control over your character. It's also free the first time so you can have one respin of skills without having top pay out anything.
How to respec your character in Diablo 4
In Diablo 4 you simply need to access the Skill Tree menu to respec a character, a huge change from the previous games where you had to visit a specific NPC. Now you can do it when and wherever you are, although there is a gold cost to pay after the first time which is free. After that the cost increases in price depending on your level and how many skill points you're refunding. When highlighting a skill node you've already purchased you'll see the Refund Cost displayed underneath it, then by holding down the Refund button you'll pay the gold to get the skill point(s) back so you can spend them elsewhere.
Alternatively, if you're after a full reset, tap the Refund All button, which will tell you you how many skill points you'll receive along with the total cost in gold – you can then choose to accept this and refund everything, or back out and pick individual nodes to refund instead.
