Existing players who have claimed the "Anti-Decay" kit will have an additional respec option available to them.
With the removal of item damage and decay, the "Anti-Decay Kit" veteran reward is not as useful as it once was. Rather than deleting these items or leaving them with a useless ability, they are being changed into a new rare useful item: the Profession Restart Kit.
It is similar to the Character Respec Device which all veteran players received after Publish 25 and since Game Update 7, it works exactly as a profession respec obtained with the Profession counselor NPCs, which means it sets the player to the appropriate Combat, Crafter or Entertainer Level after a respec.
The Profession Restart Kit is one-shot only. Once you use it to change classes, it will cease to exist. Politician and Pilot levels will be unaffected if you use your Profession Respec Kit to choose a different profession, and so are your faction rankings, quests and bio-linked items.
