Question about "Reassigning" StatsFollow

I was just curious, and forgive me if this has been discussed already, (Unable to do a search since it's restricted to premium accounts) but, when you click Reassign, is it -supposed- to only give me back 6 points? I tried reassigning at Physical Lv.5 to reallocate to magic based stats, and instead of giving me all 5 levels back, it just gave me the 6 I earned when I became level 5...

I think an unbiased sticky about how surplus exp and reallocating stats work might prevent a few of these posts.

From my understanding, you only get a certain percentage of your stats back. I recall a topic where someone tested it and it took 3 hours to fully unallocate all points so they could go from melee to mage. Someone that has truly tested it can correct me if I'm wrong.

I see, I see. Well, if someone who's fully tested it doesn't respond by the time I hit Physical Lv.10 I'll try testing it my self and posting back my finds. I just wanted to make sure it wasn't just a glitch first off. Since it seems to be % based, I'll see what I figure out at 10.

Thanks for the responses so far, and to Osanshouo, I agree, an accurate, good sticky about this stuff would help.^^;

I once heard it was 20% of your spent points back and it was on a 2 hour cool down... Never tested it though.

That said, at like level 12 during beta 3 I once got back 32 of my points in go, I had literally saved all my points up since level one, dumped them all into STR to see if it affected my crafting, then dumped them immediately into Dex. I wonder if there's a few minutes grace period to get back extra points you've JUST allocated? (in case you make a mistake?)

from my tests so far. it is less then 20%. its about an hour cooldown (or maybe less)

a big TRICK is you cannot put anypoints IN until you have removed ALL the points you want to remove (otherwise you just start taking off and on the same points) but thats kinda obvious...

i have yet to really sit down and time it, but i know the cooldown is less then an hour. you get more stat points back then elemental points per time it also seems.

if you get more exact times let us know :)

Will do. Now that I know we're a bit more unsure of the exact time, I may just stopwatch it sometime and see how long it takes the button to light back up. (Hopefully it's dynamic enough that I wont need to keep closing and opening the menu to find out, lol...)

Assuming that it doesn't change with level, I could do this tomorrow actually. I'll probably be going to sleep soon or I'd try it tonight.

It takes 15 minutes for "Reassign" to recharge.

It's been recorded on one of the FFXIV wikis somewhere, too lazy to check which one.

As for percentage of stats allowed to be reallocated, that increases per class level I believe. I went from being able to reallocate 6 Attribute Points at a lower level that I can't really remember to 20 Attribute Points at 10job/13physical per "Reassign".

If anyone can prove/disprove this, that'd be great.

Elemental Points able to be "Reassigned" might reflect job level. I can only "Reassign" 10 at 10job/13physical.

I didn't keep track of numbers (decided to test the time frame before bed) but I can verify the 15 minute wait thing.^^;
