Players may change talents freely when in any rested XP area. The [[Inscription]] profession can craft consumable items that allow for this to be done in the field. In addition, after queuing into an instanced dungeon, raid, or PvP content, players have a grace period during which they may change talents freely.

Don't panic! Players have the ability to unlearn all their talents and start over. Your [[Class Trainers|Class Trainer]], for a modest fee (increases by {{cost|5}} each use, to a maximum {{cost|50}}, however the first time you do this you will only be charged {{cost|1}}, a freebie of sorts), will let you recover all Talent Points spent up to this point. You can then reassign all your points. Keep in mind that all points are removed from '''ALL''' trees, and you'll also unlearn higher ranks of the spells achieved through a talent point expenditure. Fortunately, as of patch 2.4 you will automatically relearn the ranks of these spells as soon as you put talent points back into them.

You can avoid accidentally clicking the wrong talent by enabling talent confirmation. This is an option in the Features tab of the options pane.

Since [[Patch 1.11 (Release Notes)|patch 1.11]] there is a decay in the cost of such talent respecs:
  +
  +
:The cost to unlearn talents will now decay over time. This cost will be reduced by a rate of 5 gold per month to a minimum of 10 gold.
  +
  +
Note: Although the official patch notes continue to say that the minimum is {{cost|10}}, subsequent official posts on the WoW forums have confirmed that that is a mistake, and the cost will only be reduced to a minimum of {{cost|15}}.

Occasionally, Blizzard will restructure a class's talent tree. If the change is significant, they may reset that class's tree, allowing you to respec for free. Talent changes do not always give a free respec: for example, in patch 2.3.2, the mage spell [[Ice Block]] was made trainable, and the talent [[Cold Snap]] was moved to its place, and the new spell [[Icy Veins]] was put in Cold Snap's old spot. This change did not give mages a free respec, but it required those mages specced for Ice Block to go to a trainer and buy that spell.
  +
  +
Prior to every Expansion, Blizzard has and will reset the talent tree incase the player wished to change before the new expansion.
