This would just be abused to let pures use certain weapons eg whips. Jagex should look at updates that disincentivise pure accounts not those that pander to them, as they are nothing but an additional barrier to the (dying) PvP scene and their removal would encourage more new players to actually participate.

How would it be "abused" ? It's a simple game setting option that would only affect Hitpoints experience not the attack skill

Why would Jagex want to discourage people from making pures?
Pures are a large part of PvP in old school runescape and from recent updates it seems jagex are trying to improve pvp not discourage people from par taking if they did it would surely result in a loss of membership revenue

How would their removal encourage more new players to participate?

Agreed.

Even more reason for this not to happen.

Again HP doesn't affect what weapons you can wield lol that's the attack skill

The game is not made for pures. Pures try to pretend they are a larger percentage of the player base than they are, but they aren't.

Every build has positives and negatives. You want to get rid of the negative without giving away the positive. That's not going to happen.
Stop being a entitled snowflake. If you want something in game, earn it rather than demand it be given to you.

Still doesnt disprove the point being made.

I misread the OP slightly as I have seen probably dozens of similar threads that usually ask for more than just 1 skill to have XP paused. This idea still keeps a player's account at a certain level to suit whatever account build they are using, so my point about pures still stands.

I'd rather they made it possible for *every* account to lower their own stats before entering the wilderness, than they continue to just pander to people that choose to limit themselves for an advantage. By increasing the advantage that people with specialised accounts have in PvP you further exclude other players that don't have pure accounts from participating. When PvP is struggling for players as it stands, this does nothing at all to help attract more people.
