This isn't a glitch. Attack styles are now tied to weapon type, rather than saved as the last one you used.

To safely ensure you don't gain XP in unwanted styles, equip one of each weapon (or at least the weapons you plan on frequently using) and set the intended style on each. This should remove any worry you experience, and will also retain the intended style across weapon swaps.

yeah 333333333 now i have to check attack style to not ruin my accounts that were already set up properly for years of playing rs.

my point was jagex randomly changing the way the game has worked for so many years without being very clear about it beforehand was wack.

and i have made so many accounts that i have to remember months after the update to switch attack styles when i decide to play on an acc that hasnt logged in since that update.

i would like a rollback to my 41 attack if possible please playing for 20 years without having to check attack style sorta became habit.

To be frank, this is just simply not true.

Jagex were extremely upfront about not only the update, but the danger to pure accounts if they don't properly read up on the changes to attack styles.

Yes, in the initial launch of this change, there was a bug that meant some people gained unwanted XP as a result of said bug and not their own fault, but those cases were all handled and fixed back in April.

You have had more than ample time to become acquainted with this change in attack styles, and sadly, while it is definitely a pain to have to remember this and change settings on multiple accounts, to claim that Jagex gave no indication of this happening is quite simply not true.

While I understand your frustration, this is just how the game works now after the update, and sadly there's nothing that can be done to reset your stats due to XP gained because of this change.
