I gather that I can pay to respec my abilities, but does the cost go up permanently once I use it, or can I respec periodically for a low price?

With Patch 1.5, subscribers can respec for free and cost is reduced for Preferred players. The numbers below should still apply for Free players. See "Respecialization" at

The following information has been gleaned from the links attached:

  • Respec costs reset every week in-game for all characters.
  • The first resec is free, with each subsequent respec for the week increasing in price.
  • The relative cost of each respec does seem to be linked to your characters level, with higher characters costing more.
  • The respec cost caps at 100,000 in game currency, regardless of your level.

Relevant links:

Give it a while and there will probably be a respec calculator available, probably as an addon to the many already avalable skills calculators such as this one at tor-head.

Here are some quoted coss I have found:

Level 29 char (no spec given):

  • 1st time – 0 credits
  • 2nd time – 400 Credits
  • 3rd time – 2675 credits
  • 4th time – 8000 credits

Level 25 char (no class given)

  • 1st = 0
  • 2nd = 300
  • 3rd = 1950
  • 4th = 5850
  • 5th = 12750

No level given:

  • 1st time: free
  • 2nd: 1800 cred
  • 3rd: 8300
  • 4th: 25000
  • 5th: 50000

No level given:

  • 1st. free
  • 2nd. 300
  • 3rd. 2k
  • 4th. 10k

I hope this helps :)

P.S. If you have came to this thread looking for a more detailed answer, I am currently asking for more detailed information to work with on the SWTOR forum, so please stop by and help.
