Do they reset the Neural Remap Available date?

There are two types of remaps: annual, and bonus. Annual is always used first, and is available one year after being used. Bonus remaps are only usable if the annual remap is not available, and once gone they are not replaced.

The annual remap does not accumulate, so use it or lose it! I try to remap every year.

Bonus remaps are EXTREMELY VALUABLE so don't use them without at least 6 months of training planned. Personally, I'd save them for later.

Good information, but I'm still looking for the answer to my question since I'd like to knock out some Charisma skills.

I thought, "Annual is always used first, and is available one year after being used", was your answer.

Bonus remaps don't change that, because if they did, I would have stated so. Blink

EDIT: Of course you could always test for yourself on the test server if you have doubts.

While we're on the subject:

I haven't gotten a bonus remap in quite a long time. Years? Are they still giving them out?

last 1 I got was several years ago, so it would seem not.
I have 2 other chars with a total of 5 Bonus remaps between them, which they have absolutely no use for.
would love to be able to transfer those remaps to this charTwisted

No extra bonus remaps in the 2 years I've been playing. I think they gave an option for one as a Christmas present 3 or 4 years ago.

There is a vocal faction trying to do away with attributes, skill implants and remaps so I'd be surprised if they gave another one.

I like attributes and the skill queue game so I wish CCP would compromise and just change the annual remap to every 3-6 months.

I think it will be months, if not longer before they do anything with the attribute system, just like with the learning skills they will debate the pros and cons internally trying to figure out the best way to change it, and the arguments for and against will drag on and on....

Reducing the time between remaps would be a good compromise while we wait for them to decide what, if anything they are gonna do with the attribute system.

a 3 moth delay would go a long way to alieviating a lot of the issues that new and veteran players face when deciding what to train and when..

No.

Older characters have 4 remaps.
* Two were given when remaps were introduced in Apocrypha (March 2009).
* One was an optional Christmas present in 2011.
I can't remember the other one for certain, but I think it was when learning skills were removed (Christmas 2010).
