When I use this feature it grants me talent points instead.
I was hoping to lower my level in my Playthrough 2 in order to easily increase my off spec weapon proficiencies.
Note I had this occur on a level 50 Hunter that had completed both play throughs and the DLC for playthrough 2.
Use a save editor to decrease your experience instead. That worked for me.
