Hopefully there is a limit on paragon respecs(1)Category: GeneralOctober-5-2013 9:37 AM PDT (6 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
I'm all for having the ability to respec, but I think both paragon and skill respecs neeed to have some kind of limiting factor. I don't think you should be able to change them on a whim.

We currently don't have any plans to limit the number of Paragon respecs, but it'd be cool to hear your thoughts on the subject. It'd be nice to have additional detail on why you feel one way or the other, so I'll write down a few questions to help guide the conversation.

  • Why is limiting/unlimiting Paragon respecs necessary for the game?
  • How does limiting/unlimiting respecs improve your game experience?
  • What sort of limits would you suggest, and why?

It's been very interesting to read all of the responses so far. I’ll be keeping up on this thread, but I wanted to comment on a few things.

It needs to be unlimited because we value our time. People don't want to spend hours searching through forums for the best possible allocation of stat points. It should also be unlimited to account for constantly changing gear, and tweaking your stat points around those changes in order to keep your character well rounded.


I think a lot of players share a similar sentiment, and I do too. The game is constantly changing, and being able to adapt your character to those changes is important. However, I can’t deny the great memories I have of games where you commit to a build, and finding ways to make that build work no matter what.

There doesn't need to be a limiting factor to the respecs in a way that directly punishes the player. Nephalem Valor stacks and the cool down for switching skills outside town is a perfect example on how it should be: you're not really punished for changing your build, but you're rewarded for keeping to it.


Personally, I like this idea as a possible middle ground, but we’ll just have to wait to see how it ends up working out. Thanks for sharing everyone, and I’m looking forward to reading more!
