I've got to level 40 by biotic charging at everything and then spamming nova. Now I have been given a gift by Peebee and I want to respec into tech to maximize the benefits from it.

Is it possible to respec Ryder without creating a new character?

  • And there I was wondering why it might be hard to respect Ryder ... – Sentry Mar 28 '17 at 5:20
  • Just treat it with a little deference, pretend it's sentient and that you care about it. Every one wants a little respec. – msouth Mar 28 '17 at 5:47

Yes, you are able to do this shortly after completing the prologue. This guide explains how to do this:

In order to respec your character, you're going to need to acquire the Tempest. This will happen after you've finished your missions on Habitat 7 and the Nexus in the game's prologue.

Once you've acquired your ship, make your way down to Deck 3. You can do this by climbing down either of the ladders right outside the bridge area, which will lead to a lower level, or use the lift in the back of the cargo bay to head down.

Once you climb down either of the ladders, search for the Med Bay room. When facing the Pathfinder's Quarters, which is the room between the two ladders, it should be the bottom right door.

Once you're in the Med Bay, turn left. Usually, Lexi is standing and working in the side of the area. To the left of her is the Respec Station.

It's worth noting that these increase in cost each time. From the same site:

It will cost you a mere 20 credits to do the first respec; any future respecs will cost you a significantly larger amount of 500 credits. This rises precipitously each time you respec per save file, so do so sparingly.

  • So 20; and 500 there after; or 20, 500, then it increases by 500 each time there after? – Ramhound Mar 27 '17 at 23:55
  • @Ramhound trying to find a definitive answer to this at the moment. Some say it stays 500 after the first one, some say it increases by 500 each time, some say it costs 520 the second time then increases by different amounts... – Vemonus Mar 28 '17 at 0:01

Yes you can, for a fee. In the medical bay aboard the Tempest on the screen to the left as you enter there is an option to reset any squad member's abilities, including your own.

Note: once you have the secret tech ability that you get by helping Peebee with her quest, resetting your skills during a NewGame+ will remove this ability until you relearn it later in the story.

This will pop up a prompt, stating the amount you will be charged for this reset.
