Trying out different builds and skill combinations is an integral part of any action RPG, including Last Epoch. Every game is a little different in how you go about refunding your skills (respeccing) and putting points into new ones. This guide will show you how to respec your passive points in Last Epoch.
How to Respect Passives in Last Epoch
To respec passives in Last Epoch, visit the NPC with the pink brain icon in any major town hub. Speak with the NPC, and then select Respecialize Mastery Point allocation. You can then select the appropriate passive (mastery) tree and click on a skill to refund it.
Refunding passive skills costs Gold. The cost is more for passive skills with more points in them. You can also not break any dependencies through respeccing passives.
For example, if you have points in a mastery tree, you cannot unspec points from the base tree until you fully refund all passives from the mastery tree. The mastery tree is the right side of the tree that unlocks after you specialize in the tree.
Similarly, if you have just enough points to unlock the third skill in a mastery tree, you cannot remove a passive point from that tree if the skill is active on your character, and refunding would make that skill inactive.
For this reason, respeccing your passives in Last Epoch is time-consuming, but the system makes a lot of sense overall. It’s possible the process to respec passive skills may change in the future, but this is how you do it at the time of writing.
Hopefully, this clears things up regarding how to respec your passive skills! I know, for me, it was not super obvious how to do it.
