When Siliconera spoke to Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment, he revealed Dungeon Siege III will not allow players to respec their characters. Respec (short for respecification) is a system that allows players to redistribute points into other attributes, that way you can play a different way without having to make a brand new character.
We’re going to have to update that article because a source (that pointed to our previous interview as incorrect) says a respec feature is coming to Dungeon Siege III. It’s part of an update designed for high level players with other tweaks to Square Enix’s dungeon crawler. So, don’t restart the game with Anjali. You will be able to turn her from a fire archon to a spear master someday (soon?).
