The Defence cape is a Cape of Accomplishment that players can purchase only when they've reached level 99 in the Defence skill. It can be bought from Harlan, the Defence tutor, for 99,000 coins from where he resides, close to the Lumbridge general store.

A player performing the defence cape's emote.

Like all skill capes, the Defence cape gives +9 to all defensive stats, and also a +4 bonus to prayer if it is trimmed, which requires a separate skill at level 99. The cape is automatically trimmed if this condition is met.

When the defence cape is equipped, players can enable the cape to act as a ring of life. This option is toggle-able, and can be enabled/disabled by the player at any given time. When the effect occurs, the wearer will receive the message Your cape saves you.. Upon completion of the medium Ardougne diary, the respawn point of this effect can be toggled to Ardougne. However, an actual death will result in the player respawning to their respawn point.

This item can be stored in the cape rack of a costume room, as part of the Defence cape set, along with the hood. Ultimate Ironmen will be unable to retrieve individual pieces until the full set is stored.

As of 1 August 2021, there are 196,554 current members that have achieved level 99 in Defence.
