Torchlight Iii Torchlight 3 Refund Skill Points Respec Respectacles

Players who are familiar with action role-playing games (ARPGs) will know how important it is to refund or respec your allocated skill points. More freedom and flexibility when choosing your builds can lead to improved player experience since everyone can experiment accordingly. In Torchlight III, however, skill point refunds aren’t entirely free since you need to find Respectacles. Here’s our mini-guide to help you out.

Note: This guide is intended for Torchlight III‘s early access stage and certain mechanics may change in due course. For more information, check out our guides and features hub.

Torchlight III: Skill points – Refunding and getting Respectacles

For each character level-up in Torchlight III, you’ll get a skill point that can be allocated to a select few skills. Most character perks allow you to upgrade up to level 10, with additional boons for each “skill tier” that you obtain.

More often than not, players will pick up random skills and perks, only realizing that they’re not ideal a few hours into the game. As such, it’s imperative to manage the limited number of skill points you have and, similarly, farm some Respectacles in case you do need to refund these points.

Respectacles can be found from boss drops or boss chests. The bosses you find in regular areas and dungeon delves, including Mapworks dungeons, also count. These can be quite rare, although not as rare as Scrolls of Unbinding (which you need to remove the “lifebound” tag from items).

Once you pick up a Respectacle, simply go to your consumables tab and use the item to earn respec points. These points, in turn, can be used to refund the ones you’ve allocated into skills that you don’t need anymore (explained below).

Note: Respectacle points are also earned every 10 levels starting at level 5 — so, levels 15, 25, 35, and so on.

Let’s say you already have respec points, you’ll then need to head to your fort and build the skill station for your controlled class. For instance, the Sharpshooter needs to use the Arms Cart.

Interact with the object to bring up the two skill trees for your chosen class. If you mouse over a skill and hold right-click, you’ll be able to refund a point.
