Traits selected during character creation in Starfield are permanent and cannot be modified or added. They can only be removed, not replaced, and the effects of unselected Traits cannot be obtained through any method.

Cannot Reset Skill Points

Cannot reset skill points

In Starfield, you must be mindful of the skills you unlock or upgrade since you cannot respec skill points once allocated. You can earn skill points as you level up, and there's no level limit, which means that if you invest enough time, you can obtain all skill points in a single playthrough.

Cannot Retry Persuasion


When persuading an NPC, you have only one chance to succeed. Failing means you can't re-attempt the persuasion on the same NPC. It's recommended to unlock and rank up the "Persuasion" of the Social skills to increase your chances of success.
