I believe there should be a way to either roll back stats, such as (but not limited to): Defense, Prayer, and Constitution, or be able to use lamps to remove exp (instead of granting exp) ...perhaps with an interface with an addition and subtraction icon.

This is because, for Pures or Zerkers -which makes up an insane amount of players, we're unable to complete parts of the Achievement Diaries or even Quest (because we get EXP in unwanted skills).

I ask the community to please comment on this suggestion.

I know that there was a poll for something quite like this, albeit propose that perhaps there is something we could do and/or change so that the community is apt to approve this feature.

The game is not meant to be done by pures to that level. Every build is a compromise. If you want to have higher hits, you have to sacrifice defense and EVERYTHING that that entails. You want the advantages of being pure but without the disadvantages. That's not the way of balance.

By the by, pures are a small percentage of a small percentage. You are not an "insane number of players".
Stop being a entitled snowflake. If you want something in game, earn it rather than demand it be given to you.

I'll only support this if they let main accounts temporarily lower their stats to be compatible with pvp. The point of pure account builds is to give yourself an advantage in pvp, the point of playing a main is to be able to complete all content in the game. You can't allow one small set of accounts have all the advantages in pvp with no downside, while letting main accts get wrecked by them in pvp.

Agreed.

Choosing to be a pure is choosing to limit your account to what doesn't give you xp you don't want (so if quests give xp you don't want you have made the choice to not do that quest).

No support for catering to people who choose to limit themselves.

Basically this. I play on my pure pretty much only to pk. If I want to do other content, i go on my main that i dont limit myself on.

Duly noted. I do agree, to some extent, and understand what most of you are saying. Although, does this have to apply to Achievement Diaries, too? I am unable to do most of the achievements from the diary due to this.

Yes, it does have to do with achievement diaries.

Its your choice to be a pure, and part of that is to give up diaries which require defense or things that give defense exps.
