How to respec attribute points, skills and morphs in ESO

Welcome to the Respec Attribute Points, Skills and Morphs Guide for ESO (Elder Scrolls Online). We are going to take a look at what options you have to respect your characters attribute points, skills and morphs in this guide. Most new players are unaware of the options you have ingame. Please make sure to share this guide with new players.

Many players playing MMOs are always afraid to make irreversible choices with their characters. In ESO you don't have to worry about that, pretty much everything can be respec'ed at any time. That means you can change your attribute points as many times as you want, your skills, morphs and passives can also be changed endlessly. Same counts for the Champion Points and for things like obtaining and curing vampirism and lycanthropy in ESO.

What are Attribute Points, Skills, Morphs and Passives

Lets first take a look at your attribute points. If you navigate to your character sheet (by pressing C on the keyboard), you will find lots of different stats as well as the attributes magicka, health and stamina. You can respec these at any time while only spending a very little amount of gold, more on that further below in the guide.

Next up we have the skills overview, here you can find your ultimates, abilities, morphs and passives that your character has. your build in ESO will change many times and it always involves changing out morphs and passives for your character. You can also respec anything skill related as many times as you want with a fairly low amount of gold. Just know this, respecing will cost more if you have more skills unlocked and active, but you will notice later in the game that it is still super cheap, more further below in the guide.

How can I respec my Attribute Points and Skills in ESO?

There are basically two ways to respec/reset your attribute points. You can either pay 3200 gold ingame at any of the alliance main cities or buy a respec scroll in the Crown store in ESO. The Crown Store respec scroll is very overpriced and it is not recommended to buy that scroll. 3200 gold is a very small amount to respec attribute points in ESO. Players that buy the respec scrolls in the store often don't know that there are other options.

There are also two options to respec/reset your skills, morphs and passives in ESO. You can either pay gold (amount of gold depends on how many skills are active/unlocked) or buy a skill respec scroll in the Crown Store. Once again, the respec scroll in the Crown Store is heavily overpriced, it is not recommended to buy the item from the store.
Players commonly mention that you can respec your skills or reset your skills in ESO, in the end it is the same thing but might be confusing to newer players.

Should you buy Respec Scrolls in the ESO Crown Store?


Just to give you an idea of how much this actually costs you if you buy the respec scrolls from the Crown Store in ESO. On the PC EU server (15th December 2021) the gold crown ratio is approx. 2000:1. That means 1 crown (crown store currency) costs you 2000 gold if you trade. One respec scroll costs you 700 crowns. Which means you would pay 1'400'000 ingame gold for 1 respec scroll. While ingame you can respec your attribute points for 3200 gold.

In other words, any veteran player will tell you to never buy these scrolls in the crown store because it is a complete rip off at the current prices.

The Respec Logo looks like this on your map in the cities. When you see this logo you know that you can respec your attribute points, skills and also cure vampirism and lycanthropy there for ESO.




Now lets take a look at the base game respec locations for each alliance (Ebonheart Pact, Aldmeri Dominion, Daggerfall Covenant.

Ebonheart Pact Respec Location

For the Ebonheart Pact alliance in ESO the respec location can be found in Mournhold city in the Deshaan zone. On the world map Deshaan is located on the right side. Approximately in the middle of Deshaan you can find the city of Mournhold and in the city center you can find the "Rededication Shrines" where you can respec your attribute points and skills. You can also cure Vampirism and Lycanthropy there if you wish to do so.

Aldmeri Dominion Respec Location

For the Aldmeri Dominion alliance in ESO the respec location can be found in Elden Root city in the Grahtwood zone. On the world map Grahtwood is located in the southern area. If you teleport to the Wayshrine in the middle of Elden Root you basically already see the "Rededication Shrines" where you can respec your attribute points and skills. You can also cure Vampirism and Lycanthropy there if you wish to do so.

Daggerfall Covenant Respec Location

For the Daggerfall Covenant alliance in ESO the respec location can be found in Wayrest city in the Stormhaven zone. On the world map Stormhaven is located in the north west area. If you teleport to the Wayshrine in Wayrest city you want to walk towards the west side to see the "Rededication Shrines" where you can respec your attribute points and skills. You can also cure Vampirism and Lycanthropy there if you wish to do so (opposite site in the building).

Respec anything with 0 Gold Trick

There is also a very easy way to avoid all costs related to respecing anything. Be it attribute points, skills, morphs, passives, champion points and curses.

The trick requires The Armory Station, which was introduced a while ago. The Armory Station furnishing item is free for all players. You can learn how to get it in the "The Armory System Guide" if you haven't already placed one in your home.

The trick is fairly simple. You can create a "fake build", where none of your attribute points, skills, morphs, passives, champion points and curses are active. Now you can save this empty setup and take that and use it as your "respec shrine". That means instead of going to the respec shrines you can simply go to your Armory Station and reset everything for free without spending a single gold coin on the respecs, very smart.

In the example build below I simply wanted to respec my attribute points and all the skills and morphs, so they are empty but my champion points and sets are still active. That way I could test different skills or morphs without having to pay the respec cost at the shrines.


Thanks to Conan The Dentist for the tip with the Armory Station.

Now you know everything you need to know about how to respec your attribute points, abilities, morphs and passives in ESO (Elder Scrolls Online). We highly recommend that you share this with new players because often they don't know about this option. This guide should give clarity.
