Are you wondering how to refund skill points in Diablo 4 so you can respec? Refunding your skill points is free at first, but it does begin to cost you increased gold the more you do it. This means knowing how to use both methods of refunding skill points is extremely important, so you don’t need to waste gold. The good news is that the game’s skill tree allows players to respec their skills. Read on to find out how to successfully refund your skill points in Diablo 4 and apply them elsewhere.

There are two different ways players can refund their skills, by refunding all skill points or refunding skill points individually. At the bottom of the skill tree menu is an option that states “refund all,” which will wipe all your progress clean from the skill tree and allow you to go a different route.

On the other hand, players can refund skills individually—but this will cost some gold to do so. Currently, players can refund skills up to level 6 for free, but once level 7 comes around, the cost of refunding skills will gradually increase per level. For example, refunding at level 7 will cost one gold per skill—at level 25, it will cost a whopping 222 Gold.

It is important to note that if you plan to request a refund on a skill that leads to another skill in the tree, you will need to refund both. This is because specific skills are required to go further in the tree, and the game won’t allow you to have any open gaps.

Finally, it is essential to note that using the refund all option will remove the spells you placed in your Level 15 and Level 30 Enhancement Slots. I want to point this out because the first couple of times I refunded my spells to try a different build, I forgot to equip them back!

Considering the amount of gold required for refunds gradually increase as you rank higher in Diablo 4, it would be wise to take the time to think before spending your skill points. Mistakes happen, but being too quick to decide on a skill could prevent you from being able to afford it in the future.
