retrain follower skills

What happened to this option? When I right click on the portrait this is no longer there. Is there a different way to retrain them now?

How do I change them though?

I can't find the retrain/reset skills option that used to be there. Not mine, but the follower's.

Just choose the other skill. You dont need to reset it. Just change it.

All you do is click on the skill you want now.

Ooof. UI design fail. Looked at it, saw what appeared to be a disabled button and didn't bother clicking it.

Thanks y'all.

The first time I had to retrain my followers after the patch I was a little confused, too. All you have to do is open up the follower's window (F key by default), and left click on the skill you want them to use. You no longer have to right click their portrait and click the retrain option like you used to.

What about if you don't want them using one of the trained skills? For instance the scoundrel with a wind bow you want to use for knock backs, you may want him only using multi shot and anatomy.

You don't even have to do it in town. I recall retraining the enchantress after an elite fight because erosion caused far too much lightning enchanted spam.

*swoon* A blue response.

Grimiku, all I saw was a bunch of disabled buttons that gave no immediate feedback to being usable, and no option to retrain in the right click menu like we used to have. I think that removing that option is great as it simplifies things a lot, but the buttons need to provide a cue that they are still operational in some way when they aren't the active choice.

I have this problem too. I was using a lvl 70 bow on my Scoundrel to see how good it was and selected an option on the first skill, but now I want to re-equip my old Buriza on him, and he is stuck with the first skill selected. He can freeze far better if the first skill is not used at all. I want to be able to not have any skill selected as I was able to before the patch.
