I've heard rumors that respec cost if done too often will creep up to 100g + per respec and that the cost may decay if you don't do a respec for a long time.

What's the story on respec costs (cap if any) and decay?

1 Answer 1


The system was changed, it used to be 1g, 5g, 10g, 25g, 50g maximum (I think), then decayed 5g a month to a minimum of 10g.

Now with the new patch, the respec cost is fixed to your level. At level 80, the respec cost is always 52g.

  • It was definitely 50g maximum. I wasn't aware that it's changed. That's unfortunate, because most of my 80s were still sitting on a 1g or 5g respec fee.

  • Ya I was sure about the maximum, just not the scale to get there. But ya same with me, the change came with 4.0.3.

  • I respecced my level 71(72?) Paladin for the first time - was disappointed it cost 18g :( Oh well.

  • This must have changed again... I just respec'd an 80 warlock and it was more like 26g... perhaps the cap is 52g.

  • I've seen both the 52G and 26G respec costs. I don't remember exactly, but it may be that it's different for each of your dual-specs. i.e. 52G for mainspec, 26G for 2nd spec.
