I find myself respeccing characters a lot throughout a playthrough depending on which NPCs are in the group, what hot new items I picked up, and what phase of the game I’m in.

Same, that being said I’m just an old Salt Dog/ curmudgeon so I find it cheap. I’m not saying it’s cheap it is not. I just grumble a lot and like the old d and d rules where no respec was in. Bad build? You suck start again.

For instance I was a Forward Observer in the military you couldn’t just instantly retrain me into a Cannon Crewmen. So I impose those rules on myself. Cause I like pain and failure makes you learn the hard way :)

Maybe once or twice. But I try to avoid it. Even in a solo game.

Never really. I have done it if i make a mistake for a talent or something but i dont do builds that require respecing later on.

None, except to test on stuff on a separate file save.

But respec option is there, no harm using it.

I never respec on purpose.
I always respec when I need (which might happen a couple of time per playthrough for the whole party).

But the most important rule is : I never ever ever respec with a Wizard ! (one would loose her/his spells).

Good to know! I currently have three PoE playthroughs (mostly act 3 and/or WM)  that I might be able to finish before April and it occurred to me I might want to make use of a respec or two while fooling with them in order to make use of different companions to change things up from my only other finished game.
