I've been playing on my lvl 3 skiller alot lately. I've enjoyed questing, but the amount of quests are rather limited for skillers, which is comes down to limited combat (mostly ring of recoil) and quest rewards. The limited combat makes sense, but for a quest like Tai Bwo Wannai Trio, the only reason it can't be completed is the after quest XP rewards. Thus I think you should be able to decline XP rewards from quest. This could be done on the quest completion screen. Perhapse just clicking on the XP rewards on the screen would turn the reward of.

This would just open up a lot more quest for skillers and other niche acounts.

For years now, I've never understood why people get so uptight about pures, whether skilling or combat. I can definitely see the appeal of making an account specifically for the purpose of skilling or training certain skills but it sounds incredibly silly when people get all up and arms when they accidentally acquire a bit of XP from a quest, event, etc.

A little XP or a level here and there isn't gonna hurt anything.

You choose not to level those skills, don't come complaining that you can't do stuff that gives you xp in those skills.
That's the consequence if limiting yourself: you have limits.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

They could totally do the quest xp optional and they're already doing it in their own way.

Over the last years (although there weren't many quest releases lately) I have noticed that they tend to award the xp rewards in the form of lamps instead of directly adding to the player's stats. Also, I have noticed in some patches that in many old quests they've done the tweak to accomodate that. I am not a skiller and I love quests, but I do not like getting xp uncontrollably from here and there. I wish to control how much xp goes in what skill at what time, so their approach is an implementation I enjoy very much.

Their approach has 2 advantages:
- you can deny the xp reward by destroying the lamp.
- in many quests (mostly the major ones), an npc (related to the specific quest in some way) remembers that you destroyed the xp lamp, so some time in the future you could ask for the lamp back if you change your mind by talking to that npc.

So my thought is that they forgot to apply the appropriate change to the quests you're talking about as it's not something new in the game.

OP's suggestion is already being implemented. More and more quests being changed to reward xp in lamps instead of direct xp.
