If you’re looking to take your character in a different direction, you can respec not only your character but also your party members in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. To do this, you need to speak to Hilor.

Depending on the Act you’re currently in, you can find Hilor in different locations. Before you seek out Hilor, ensure that you have enabled the “Enable character retrain” option in your difficulty settings. Note that this option may not be available on higher difficulties, so make sure to check if it’s enabled.

After initiating your character and diving into the main campaign, your group will eventually reach the Gray Garrison. Following numerous battles and acquiring loot, the party will face a demoness named Minagho. Unfortunately, you cannot win this encounter, and your character will wake up in Defender’s Rest, where Hilor is located.

Head to the war room in the corner and speak to Hilor, selecting the option “My companions and I need good training.” If you’re no longer in Act 1, below are the locations where you can find Hilor in each Act:

  • Act 2: Crusade encampment.
  • Act 3: Second floor of Inn in Drezen.
  • Act 4: Fleshmarkets.
  • Act 5: Second floor of Inn in Drezen.

By paying the fee, you can select your main character or any party member to be retrained. For your main character, everything will be reset, allowing you to change your appearance, class, skill points, feats, and more.

Retraining companions is slightly more complex. Everything is reset only up to the point when you first recruited the companion. For example, companions like Seelah, Camellia, Lann, and Wenduag will always be at lower levels since that’s how you first encountered them.

This gives you the opportunity to change their classes or acquire different spells. However, it’s more challenging to tweak companions who join your party later in the campaign and are already at a higher level.

After completing the campaign, Hilor will always be at the Drezen Inn. So, if you’re looking to respec and try out new Archetypes from the A Dance of Masks DLC, make sure to pay him a visit.
