You can respec skills in Last Epoch at any time while on your adventure by opening the Skills tab, though there are some aspects you need to be aware of.

Removing points from the skill tree reduces the Skill level by one, so you need to level up the skill again to regain the points. Therefore, you won’t always be able to remove a point and immediately reallocate it somewhere else.

When you want to respec your Skills in Last Epoch, follow these steps:

  • Hit S on your keyboard.
  • Click on the Skill Specialization where you want to reallocate points.
  • Click the Respec option in the top-right of the screen.
  • Select Remove Skill Points.
  • Select the Node you want to remove a point from.
  • Click Confirm on the pop-up that appears.
  • Select a new Node to allocate a point to, if possible.
