I'm sure this has been brought up in the past on the forums, I've seen this as a suggestion on reddit, but most posts that I see about this give only an individual reason why they want this. But I believe this would bring about a change to a couple different areas in the game.

I wish to see there be an experience lock option in OSRS. I don't play RS3 but I hear they do have this option there. This could be done simply by right clicking a particular skill and toggle on/off there. Or if you want to make it a slight bit of effort, have it where you have to go to an NPC to toggle experience which could also cost a certain amount of coin. Since skill capes are already in the game you could have those masters that sell the capes be the ones you have to go to, to toggle the experience on and off. Using the skill masters would still limit some players, for instance Ajjat is located in the Warrior's Guild, meaning you wouldn't be able to toggle attack until you have access to it (Unless you relocated skill masters outside of restricted areas).

This toggle-able experience would also affect gains from quests, which is the main reason for this post. I believe this is a popular belief that it would be great for 1 Def, 1 Prayer, 10 HP pures or level 3 skillers that are limited in what they can do. I understand that many of you may think of this as less of a challenge, but I believe it would bring about other challenges as well. Pures would be able to access new items and areas they wouldn't have had access to before, possibly making drastic changes to PKing. Level 3 skillers would be able to access quicker modes of transport (Fairy Rings) and could challenge themselves further by doing quests they would otherwise not look twice at because of the combat experience rewards. I personally have done Shilo Village on my level 3 as a challenge and succeeded. Please grant us the ability to challenge ourselves more like this.

Suppose there was another reason for level 3 skillers to get this, it would make it a possibility for us to get 99 slayer! Albeit this would still take ages, it's still more of a possibility than relying on XP lamps and tomes.

no support to this as suggested.

I would be okay with it removing attack options, for instance gear with defence options only and def turned off, would remove the ability to select those attack options.

That is the only way I could see this implementing. Unlocking barrow gloves to a 1 def 10 hp account sounds super broken, sorry...

I could see the way I suggested as a positive for those that do not understand the semi-recent change to attack styles on weapons, and would help to prevent people from "ruining" their pures without making them suddenly overpowered.

I understand that pking with a 10 hp pure with barrows gloves and with the new poll of blessed dhide requiring no defence to wear could be a bit OP if they were still locked to 10 hp in PvP. I suppose one change to this would be that while in the Wild, or in PvP worlds, you aren't locked to experience, regardless of whether you previously toggled it off. That way even if you made a 10 HP pure for pking, you'd start gaining HP experience when you PK, so you wouldn't remain a low HP pure for long.

If the pking is too difficult to work around to be able to toggle experience, maybe for us level 3 skillers you could make a new account type. Similar to how you'd choose to be an ironman at the end of tutorial island, there would be an NPC you could talk to, to be a non combat skiller. Meaning combat experience gains are permanently turned off. And, just as Ironmen are allowed to, you could toggle this off Once and can never go back.
