I'll be brief—

With friends, this game can be hard to play most minigames and do dungeons, because of the level disparity. This is particularly true when those friends just got their account and are more interested in hanging out than grinding skills. My idea is simple: add an NPC in Lumbridge next to Nastroth, and a corresponding menu in settings accessible from anywhere in the game, where players can change all of their skill levels anywhere from 1 to where their XP allows.

I know there are some areas in the game where this might lead to complications (for instance, the wilderness should definitely be exempt for combat stats), but please feel free to discuss those in the comments, because if integrated correctly, this fix could be a lifesaver for many and bring together the community far more. It might also attract more new subscribing players because their friends don't have to create f2p alts in order to effectively do things like dungeoneering, fist of guthix, etc.

The way levels work in this game currently (and normally) is your XP gives you a level that defines your character forever, and this level can only progress upward. I'm asking that instead of this level being static, players can opt to temporarily reduce their level in order to have the same stats as their friends when doing X, Y, or Z activity.

This will remain in place until the player decides to bring their level back to where it was via the same interface and/or NPC.

So i think i understand you? If i am 90 in all combat, you want to reduce my level down to 60 so i can play with a person of similar level (60), making it more friendly to fun. If this is the case, i strongly support this, as long as the risks also come with the benefits of fun. I.e, The ONLY thing that changes is your levels, meaning until you go and change them back, they remain those lowered levels.

90/99 attack = down to 60/99 attack - until changed back to normal.

This can be done for all skills. This does also mean that you also have level caps, meaning if you are now 60 attack, you cannot wield godswords etc. With this, you can only limit yourself, not gain anything. This would make the game more enjoyable for high leveled players who want a challenge when doing Barrows etc.

If this is what you mean, then i support strongly.

Simple CB—that's exactly what I mean and I frankly couldn't have articulated it better. Appreciate the support! :D

@whatusaytome—thanks too!

@tenebri—lol you raise a good point; I'll stop having friends then (kidding)
