A Cape of Accomplishment (also called a skillcape) is a cape that symbolises achieving the highest possible level in a particular skill (level 99), the completion of every quest (291 QP), every Achievement Diary, or unlocking all the in-game music. Capes of Accomplishment are members' only items.

A selection of Capes of Accomplishment

Capes of Accomplishment cost 99,000 coins (same price for the trimmed capes once you have trained two or more skills to 99). Each are obtainable from specific NPC masters, who can be seen proudly displaying the cape. A temporary skill boost that raises a skill level to 99 will not allow the player to obtain the corresponding cape. The NPC is located in a place related to their skill. Capes also come with matching hoods, although the hoods do not offer any bonuses.

When a player achieves a second level 99 skill, their earlier cape of accomplishment receives a graphical enhancement in the form of a "trim" of a different colour. This trim is irreversible. These so called "trimmed skillcapes" can be used to show that someone has more than one skillcape. The Achievement diary cape will allow you to trim both the Quest point cape and the Music cape, although the achievement diary cape can only be trimmed after obtaining the quest point cape. Unlike other Capes of Accomplishment, the aforementioned three capes can be manually trimmed and untrimmed by use of the right click menu.

If a player holding a skillcape dies to another player, and it is not protected on death, 11,880 coins will appear on the floor for the killer.

This is a general reflection of the difficulty it takes to train the pertaining skill.

Equipment bonuses[edit | edit source]

All of the different Capes of Accomplishment provide the same bonuses, with the exception of untrimmed and trimmed skillcapes, where the trimmed versions and the Max cape provide a +4 prayer bonus. Untrimmed Capes of Accomplishment have identical stats to that of an Obsidian cape.

Emote[edit | edit source]

Each cape comes with a special emote that can only be performed while wearing the skillcape, however the music cape emote can be performed without wearing its respective cape. The emotes are meant to represent the cape's respective skills.

Skill boost[edit | edit source]

Wearing the cape and selecting the "Boost" option in the equipment menu temporarily boosts the player's effective level in the cape's skill by one, up to 100. This does not apply to the quest point cape. The Hitpoints and Prayer capes have a one-minute cool-down period between uses of this effect. The boost effect follows the same rules as any other skill boost, lasting up to 60 seconds if no other boosts are active at the time of boosting. Every cape's boost cannot be reactivated until the skill has dropped back to 99. When you equip the cape, the boost automatically activates. The following skills have no uses from the skill boost unless their level is temporarily decreased: Woodcutting, Construction, Herblore, Crafting, Fletching and Slayer.

Cape of Accomplishment perks[edit | edit source]

Each cape has certain benefits. For example, the Firemaking cape will act as a light source either when equipped or in inventory, and as warm clothing for Wintertodt, and wearing the Cooking cape will prevent any food from being burned. These perks only work on members worlds.

A max cape will provide all the perks of all skillcapes. However, a max cape may be combined with certain best-in-slot cape slot items, such as the Guthix cape, creating a Guthix max cape. Doing so will cause the max cape to assume the stats of the item it was combined with, forfeiting the max cape perks, making it merely a cosmetic enhancement to the original item. A list of all possible max cape combinations can be found here.

If a player displays a certain set of skillcapes on the cape hanger in a player-owned house Achievement Gallery, the perks that they have will become available only to the house owner. The perks of the following skillcapes can be used while displayed on the cape hanger:

Keeping the first Skillcape untrimmed[edit | edit source]

When players get their first Skillcape, it will be untrimmed. The moment the player reaches 99 in another skill, all untrimmed capes currently in possession of the player will become permanently trimmed, unless some precaution is taken. Players may wish to keep their first Skillcape untrimmed, because they like the look of it or another reason. Owning multiple untrimmed capes may be helpful to avoid losing every untrimmed version. Some methods to keep the untrimmed Skillcapes from trimming are as follows:
Note: These methods need to be repeated every time a new 99 is about to be achieved, including while not a member.

  1. Drop the Skillcape on the ground.
  2. Reach 99 in another skill.
  3. Telegrab the untrimmed Skillcape. It will remain untrimmed.
    • If picked up without telegrab, it'll trim upon pickup.
  • Having the untrimmed cape in a death storage:
  1. Dying to some instanced NPCs transports your items into a death storage, excluding your protected items. Check the death page for more info on protected items.
    • Normal death: Upon dying to an NPC your items will be transported to your grave, excluding your protected items.
    • Hespori: Arno will hold your items. Requires 65 Farming to plant a Hespori seed. He requires 25,000 coins to reclaim the items.
      • These are methods available to Skill pures, as they cannot use Magic to telegrab the cape.
    • Zulrah: Priestess Zul-Gwenwynig will hold your items. Requires access to Zul-Andra.[2] She requires 100,000 coins to reclaim your items after you have killed Zulrah 50 times.
    • Chambers of Xeric: Store your cape in during the raid and leave it there. This is the best method as you can die multiple times outside of the raid and the items in the chest will never disappear unlike the Zulrah or Theatre of Blood chest.[3]
    • The following death storages have not been tested, but are assumed to work similarly:
  2. Reach 99 in another skill.
  3. Take the Skillcape out of the death storage.

Joke Skillcapes[edit | edit source]

While these capes resemble a skillcape and possess a skillcape emote, they are considered a joke and do not qualify as a real Cape of Accomplishment (e.g. for purposes of the Falador Diary).

You can no longer perform skillcape emotes aboard the Fishing Trawler.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If a player somehow possesses a cape of accomplishment for a skill that they later have the base level reduced, they will be unable to wear it until they achieve 99 again.
  • The max cape does not have an operate function, and thus cannot boost any skill.
  • As every cape costs 99,000 coins each, buying all Capes of Accomplishment (Skill Capes, Quest Point Cape, Achievement Diary Cape, and Music Cape) will require 2,574,000 coins, excluding the max cape. With the Max cape included, it would cost 4,851,000 coins for every Cape of Accomplishment.
  • Including the 23 skillcapes, the Max cape, the Quest point cape, the Achievement diary cape and the Music cape, there are a total of 27 capes of accomplishment.
