One of the two ways you can respec or reset Skill Points and Stats of your character in Diablo 2 Resurrected is by completing Akara’s quest in Act 1 of the game. To do so, you will need to head right back to this act. You can choose any difficulty for this. Once in Act 1, you need to finish the Den of Evil quest assigned to you by Akara. You will also need to interact with her in the Rogue Encampment. Here, you need to select the Reset Stat/Skill Points option. Doing so will reset all of the stats settings. With that being said, you need to remember that this can only be done one time per difficulty. Considering the fact that there are three different difficulties in the game, you will only have the opportunity to get skill and stat respect up to thrice, depending upon the difficulty you choose. Because of this, we recommend you go in with a clear plan and figure out the best time to respec or reset.

The second way to respec or reset Skill Points and Stats in Diablo 2 Resurrected is with the help of Token of Absolution. This particular process also entails the Horardic Cube. Once you acquire the cube, you need to kill each and every one of the Act bosses. You will need to do so on the Hell difficulty. Here, each boss will have a one in ten chance of dropping an Essence.

If you acquire 4 different essences, you can place them in the Horardic Cube. Now, you can press the Transmute button. Doing so will result in the creation of a Token of Absolution. Since there is no fixed amount of Tokens that you are restricted to create, you will only be limited by the time it takes to farm these essences.

With that being said, let us check out the Essences that you need to collect in order to create the Token of Absolution. You need to follow the order mentioned below:

  • Twisted Essence of Suffering – You will receive this essence from Duriel and Andariel.
  • Charged Essence of Hatred –  You will receive this essence from Mephisto.
  • Burning Essence of Terror – You will receive this essence from Diablo.
  • Festering Essence of Destruction – You will receive this essence from Baal.

After you acquire these essences, you can drag them into the cube to get The Token of Absolution.
