How are you going to be able to refund your trait points

I want to know this because on areanet they say a trainer will help you do this for a small cost but... in other videos I see people doing at will so what's the deal?

As far as I know the system will work like this:

In WvW and PvE you will be able to change your major traits out in the field. To change the trait points however, you need to see the trainer and respec for a fee. They have a fee because you need several money sinks in the game to combat the natural inflation that occurs. 

Competitive PvP works differently. In the PvP hub you can change your build how many times you want. 

I don't know what videos you saw, but maybe the system isn't implemented in the beta?

Yeah I understand the trait point system in PvP and WvW that makes sense...

But I saw a video where he was freely changing his points however he wanted hmm it was kinda old though.


I agree maybe the point refund system isn't in beta. I really hope it's in when the game comes out.

The only way I was able to change traits in the last beta (not counting in the Mists between PvP matches) was to visit a special NPC they had set up for press to auto-level to 30 to be able to play though the Ascalon Catacombs dungeon. Talking to them once set you to 30, but you could keep going back to them which would reset trait points, but not the skill points you already spent.

Otherwise, I didn't really find a way to reset points, but from what I was told it will be done through the same profession trainer where you purchase the 3 books to unlock the trait tiers.
