Does the cost for resetting your Trait points go up depending on how many times you've done it in the past or does it go up depending on your level or some other factor?

The cost for resetting trait points in PvE is 5 copper per point. As such, the cost for resetting them at level 80 is 3 silver and 50 copper. It doesn't matter how many times you do it, that cost at cap will remain the same.

Alternatively, your trait points reset when you use Training Manuals, so take advantage of the free reset when you buy a manual at levels 11, 40, and 60.

When playing Structured PvP, resetting your trait points is free.

That's what I was looking for - thanks! – Jawaiian Oct 22 '12 at 20:27
@Jawaiian You're welcome! I've found that the cost is low enough to allow for experimentation and changing builds for PvE/Dungeons/WvW without feeling like you have to spend too much money.

I agree. I'm used to other games where the cost of resetting skills is high enough to only want to do it a few times. I'm new to stackexchange, thanks for the tip on accepting an answer. Done and done! – Jawaiian Oct 22 '12 at 20:35

Since the April 2014 Feature Pack update, changing traits is now free, and can be done anywhere in the world, as long as you are not in combat.

The trait screen now have a minus button beside the plus one, allowing you to remove points as will.
