Character creation in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous can be daunting at first. Thankfully, you don’t need to be restricted when it comes to your choices. Here’s our Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous guide to help you respec or retrain your characters.
Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous – How to respec or retrain your characters
First things first, before you start your Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous campaign, make sure to check the difficulty settings.
Turn on the “Enable Character Retrain” option (seen in the image below).
Next, go ahead and create your character (you’ll probably spend an hour doing that due to oodles of combinations), and begin the campaign. Watch the introductory cutscene, make your way past the caves, and progress further into the Shield Maze.
Your group will, eventually, arrive in the Gray Garrison. After many battles and grabbing lots of loot, the party will fight a demoness called Minagho. You can’t win this encounter, and your character wakes up in Defender’s Rest.
This large tavern has a war room in the corner where you’ll find a man named Hilor. The dialogue option you’re looking for is: “My companions and I need good training.”
You can then select your main character or anyone in your party who’ll be retrained. For your main character, everything will be reset, so you’re free to change your class, respec skill points, change feats, and so on. If you’ve reached level 5 or higher, you could also select the ideal options that would allow you to unlock a Prestige Class (i.e., getting the Dodge and Toughness feats and having a +7 base attack bonus if you want to be a Stalwart Defender).
For your companions, things can be a little trickier. Everything is reset only up to the point when you first recruited them. For instance, Seelah, Camellia, Lann, and maybe Wenduag will always be at low levels since that’s how you encountered them by default. This gives you more leeway to change their classes or gain different spells. It’s different for companions who get recruited much later in the campaign. If they’re already at level 6 or higher by default, it’s harder to tweak them accordingly.
What about a mercenary?
However, Hilor also gives you a rather expensive option to recruit a mercenary. A mercenary is basically a generic companion, and the recruitment cost increases the higher your character’s level. Your mercenary starts out at level 1, but you can continue customizing and tweaking them up to your character’s current level. From there, they’ll just earn XP normally.
