The gameplay in GRIME demands a lot of the player, both in terms of skill and build quality. It’s got plenty of RPG elements between its stat allocation and traits systems that give you a lot to mull over to make the perfect build for your playstyle. With this all in mind you need to know how to respec, so you can play with different builds and find the one for you.

In this guide, we’ll go over what you can and cannot change once you spend points and the materials you’ll need if you want to respec at all.

How to Respec in GRIME

When you play GRIME, there are two pools to spend points in: your character’s stats and Traits from the prey you capture throughout the game.

As of right now, there is no way to respec your statistics back to zero in GRIME.

The developers have the ability on their radar, but a full respec option won’t likely be available for some time. The game needs to receive bug fixes, balance patches, and stability work before additional systems make their way to players.

Thankfully there is a way to refund Trait points, provided you have the rare item required.

Scattered throughout GRIME’s world, usually hidden in secret rooms or guarded by challenging monsters, are items called Motley Pearls.

If you have one of these in your inventory, you can use it to refund all the Hunt Points you’ve spent on a single trait. This will free up those particular Hunt Points for use on another Trait of your choosing but will consume the Pearl itself.

Be aware there are more Traits available for use than there are Motley Pearls, especially early on, so use them wisely. Remember that if you use a Motley Pearl to respec a trait, you lose all the benefits that Trait once granted.

You will be able to re-spend all the points you got back if you make a mistake, but you’ll have essentially wasted the Pearl in doing so.

That’s all there is to know about how to respec your character in GRIME. Stay tuned for more content from this Met-Souls-Vania, a name I just made up.
