Respecialization is when you reset all of your talents and traits to zero. No talent points are lost in this process. There is a one-month RL timer on Respecialization, during which you cannot Respecialize again. After the timer expires, you may Respecialize again. These do not stack up - you cannot wait two months and Respecialize twice in a row immediately.

Click the Specialization Name to see a list of Levels for that Specialization.
