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.
Boxtrot, the peacefull

NO.

Playing as a skiller is playing the game ina way it wasn't intended.

It has both advantages AND disadvantages.

Skillers need to accept that there are disadvantages to their play style and stop trying to completely break the game in order to make things easier for them.

How would it break the game for anyone?


I've explained this on plenty of other threads related to this.

There are many rewards locked behind quest requirement, such as new areas, bosses, wepaons etc etc.

I.e. a few main ones off the top of my head are the crystal bow, Excalibur and barrows gloves.

Now...the only reason pures can't get those items is because the quests required to give them hand out defence exp which they obviously dont want.

And pures are incredibly broken, especially in PVP already and giving them things such as the crystal bow, barrows gloves AND excalibur? i.e. untradable items that can't be lost on death, would both severely buff their damage in combat AND make it so they don't have to risk literally anything in combat.

tl;dr

- Pures are already broken and play the game in a way it wasn't intended to be played.

- This would make them even stronger and even more broken by allowing them to pick and choose exp.

- when playing as a pure you have to accept BOTH the advantages and disadvantages to the playstyle...and one disadvantage is you can't do certain quests/get certain items.

- If you don't like that? then don't be a pure....you can't have everything handed to you for free and complain about all the negatives to being a pure that you willingly imposed on yourself...Jagex isn't stopping you doing the quests. only you are.

Crystal bows are rubbish for everything but ragging, the main thing is that barrows gloves and heavy ballista shouldn't be available to people that deliberately limit their account. Instead of Jagex changing the game to allow people with novelty accounts to do certain things without 'ruining' the account, and then having to add hundreds of bits of code to prevent pures from accessing weapons they (deliberately) shouldn't be allowed to use, maybe you can just accept that limiting yourself comes with limitations.

If you voluntarily put limits on your play-style then you can't complain that you are unable to access certain features/rewards....it's your choice to play in a way that makes them unobtainable.

Agreed.

You choose to play a certain way thus have to deal with the downsides.

If you cant deal with them then stop playing this way.

Exactly.

The point of pures is making sacrifices for strength in other areas. If you don't have to make those sacrifices, it'd be incredibly imbalanced.

No support. If you want the rewards from quests that give Defence XP, you gotta get the Defence XP that comes with it.
I'll keep score from now on.

If ironmen could do shield of arrav and heroes quests which explicitly mandate player interaction, then it'd be imbalanced.
The ditch is gonna get endless repolls while sand buckets can pass the first poll and never be implemented. After the ditch passes the 7th poll attempt, it'll be implemented an hour before the poll closes because it's actually important. Deal with it.
