I would like to respec my 35 warlock so I can gain back the 2 or 3 points I wasted in the Affliction tree.  I am heavy Affliction now and plan to stay that way, but I want to also go Destruction to round me out to 60...getting back these points would really help.

My question...How much will this cost me?  I only plan on doing this once, and I understand that it will cost 1g to unlearn what I have now.   Do I then have to pay to re-allocate?

Nope, it will only cost you 1g. Once you hit the button to accept the respec all your talents get erased and you get to place them anywhere you wish.

Be careful though, you should know that if you have bought any additional ranks of powers/spells learned from talents, you will lose those too and will have to pay to learn those again.

And next time you want to respec it will be more..like 5g or 10g..not sure...think it goes up to 25g.

Ok, thank you!  This makes perfect sense.  Someone was trying to explain this to me in-game and I wasn't really understanding.

It sounds like the effort is definitely worth it, at least for my case.

You can easily afford to do this a number of times.  Totally worth it to get where you want.

Close, but not quite. Here's the order:

1g, 5g, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50, 50, 50...

In short - it starts at 1, goes up to 5, and then adds 5 gold every additional respec until you hit 50 gold, where it stops.

Expensive the first time? No. After a few times? Heck yes.

There is also the cost of relearning any talents that are not part of the core abilities of your characters.

For example, as a rogue, when I respecced and included Hemorrhage, I had to re-pay to train Hemrrohage Rank 2 and Rank 3 (about 2g total).

I am not sure if this would hold true for other classes, though I assume there it might be.

Yes good point.  Almost all classes have something like this.  Warriors have Mortal Strike.  Some casting classes have spells that work the same way.

Its really kind of shitty that they will nerf or boost talents and not give you a free respec.

At lvl 35, my warlock only had to pay 1g for the respec, so I 'm very glad I did it.  The timing was perfect, because soon after, I picked up my first spell-from-talent, Siphon Life (rank 2).  Had I waited, my cost to respec at lvl 38 would have been almost double.

The best advice of course is to not screw up your talents in the first place!  If you do, fix it early!

With my mage, I didn't worry about changing talents until I got to 60.  I just went with what worked for me along the way.  At 60 is when I started to experiment with different builds.

The morale of the story?  Don't worry too much about how you do your talents since you'll most likely respec at 60 several times anyway.  At least that's what worked for me.  Did it the same way with my hunter too.  Although, I did respec once as my rogue but wasn't 60 yet...  :o

I usually advise not whats technically best, but whats most powerful (especially in PvE), at least until you are approaching 60.

Having said that, however, it doesnt hurt to respec and try out different things.  Too many people fixate too much on what the 'best' spec is, but different people have different styles.  

If I have another person tell me not to cast shadow spells as a priest, Im going to go postal  :twisted:  They dont understand that using Vampiric Embrace is like casting Renew on the entire party, and doesnt require me to babysit everybody's health.

I know Rogue also has many different viable specs, which bring different strengths and weaknesses to them.  So I guess overall the best advice would be to level up and become familiar with the class, then keep toying with the Talent Calculator until you become familiar with what the talents are and what they bring to the table.

In my case, I have what I consider to be the 'perfect' priest build, but I admit it's really only perfect for me.  Others value different class roles more, and it likely wouldnt be as effective on a PvE server.
