Can you reassign or change your character's attributes and abilities(respec) more than once in Diablo 2?

One of the patches to Diablo 2 added a quest reward that allowed you to re-spec your characters skills. If a character had already completed all the quests prior to the patch, is there any way to get a respec for that character?

Edit: I'm aware of the technique mentioned in Can you reassign or change your character's attributes and abilities(respec) more than once in Diablo 2?, but I'm not yet able to beat all the bosses in Hell. Is there no free respecs for characters that existed before the patch?

The 1.13 patchnotes says that all players who have completet the quests should receive 1 free respec in hell difficulty.

Respecialization is now possible! Completing the 'Den of Evil' quest will now additionally reward 1 free respec which can be saved. Players who have already completed this quest should receive 1 free respec in Hell difficulty.

********************Keeping answer for original question**********************

Yes, as of patch 1.13 you can respec by collecting one of each essence and using them in the Horadiric Cube

1 of each of the Essences --> Reset of stats

In v1.13 a new choice was added. A character can now respec their attributes. This is done by speaking to Akara after completing the Den of Evil quest in Act 1.

In that same version, after using all of the stat resets, if you're still unhappy with your build, you can go out and defeat each of the end bosses of each act in Hell difficulty to receive an Essence.

They are just a bit more rare than keys are to complete the pandemonium event.

Only works in v1.13 or later


  • I was aware of this, I was wondering if there was a free respec given to existing characters or anything.

Prior to patch 1.13, everyone should have been given at least one free re-spec via Akasha on Hell difficulty. I believe you also could talk to her on the later difficulties for a free re-spec even if you had previously completed the Den of Evil quests on Normal and Nightmare.
