# 1 Respec Cost
08-14-2010, 08:30 AM
Is it just me or has the respec cost in merits jumped up by 10,000

Why has this gone up to charge 30,000 merits to change your skills?

If anyone could shed some light on this it would be very much appreciated.

The cost is based on rank. The higher the rank the higher the cost to respec.

I can only assume that you've hit VA and seen this functionality in effect.

That could be the case. Just so happens that I had never needed to buy a respec with merits before I got to RA.

Thought that was a fixed cost but nevermind.

Marketing decided that Respec Tokens weren't making enough money on the C-Store.

Yeah i guess. To have to pay to re skill is like having to pay to use another ship, oh wait

That's exactly what happened and it's shamefull. This is another serously bad move: Please put the in-game cost of respect back to a reasonable level, this is part of core gameplay and there is no justification for screwing your userbase in this manner Cryptic/Atari

...oh THAT's why the flag ranks are compressed to five levels/rank for no comprehensible reason! It inflates the in-game cost of endgame respecs more effectively without making it blindingly obvious.

Diagonally. Pretty sneaky, sis.

Now if whichever genius (well, relatively speaking) in Marketing that came up with that could be persuaded to use his or her powers for good...

Respecs shouldn´t be that expensive in the first place. The whole skill system is confusing and... well, cryptic. I know that i had trouble figuring things out after launch. This is the only game that has high respec costs AND only three classes that can be done in at least 3 different ways each. And 400 CP for one token in the store is ridiculous.
