The imbued guthix cape is obtained from imbuing a Guthix cape with the items dropped by Justiciar Zachariah, Porazdir, and Derwen, during the The Mage Arena II miniquest. Subsequent imbues will require only ent's roots.
This cape, along with the imbued Saradomin and Zamorak capes, provides the best in slot magic attack bonus for the cape slot.
Despite the update newspost stating that the cape is always lost upon death (excluding safe deaths and services that offer an item reclaim function, such as Zulrah via Priestess Zul-Gwenwynig and the Grotesque Guardians via the magical chest), the cape, like most untradeable equipment, is automatically protected upon death in dangerous PvM scenarios outside of the Wilderness.
Upon death in the Wilderness (level 20 and above), if the item is unprotected, it will be converted into 60,000 coins when dropped. If the player dies below level 20 Wilderness, it will remain in the player's inventory. However, the item will be unusable and must be repaired with 75,000 coins by using the item on Perdu.
The imbued Guthix cape can be combined with the max cape to change its appearance by turning it into the imbued guthix max cape.

- Players can no longer obtain additional imbued god capes without giving the remains of another god being, and capes obtained in this manner were removed.
- The imbued god capes can no longer be alchemised. Previously, casting High Level Alchemy resulted in 60,000 coins being given.
- The cape's design was based on that of a Reddit user named acy2fast . As a token of thanks, he was given a care package containing a Chambers of Xeric coaster, an Inferno poster, a mousepad, a Deadman t-shirt, and a red mug signed by Mod Ash.
