Max cape detail.png

The max cape is a cape available to players who have attained level 99 in all 23 skills. It is sold by Mac for 2,277,000 coins (99,000 for each of the 23 skills). Mac is located on an island west of the Warriors' Guild, beyond the ladder that leads down to level 106 Cyclopes. To reach him, the player needs a pickaxe and an axe, as well as level 99 in Agility, Crafting, Construction, Defence, Mining, and Woodcutting.[1][2]

The total level a player needs for the max cape is 2,277, the minimum amount of experience required being 299,791,913. When purchased, it comes along with a corresponding hood. Its stats are equivalent to a trimmed skillcape. It inherits all skillcape perks from other skillcapes. Like the ranging cape, a Vorkath's head can be used on the max cape to increase its ammo-saving effects to match that of the Ava's assembler. If you have already used a Vorkath's head on a ranging cape prior to obtaining a max cape you do not need to use another on the max cape.

Mac will purchase excess max capes for 1,821,600 coins. This can only be done if the player has both the hood and cape in their inventory. Other max cape variants can be refunded in the same manner.

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

As of 1 September 2023, there are 39,034 players that have achieved level 99 in all skills.

The max cape's emote shows the icons for all 23 skills flying above the character's head, and a bar graph stylized like the stats interface icon, with the player floating over it.

Variants[edit | edit source]

Players can use the max cape on certain cape items, which will change the stats of the max cape to those of the item it is combined with. This will remove all skillcape perks that the max cape provides, effectively being a cosmetic upgrade to the item it is used on; for example, the infernal max cape has identical stats to the infernal cape (with the exception of a lower weight and higher value) without providing any teleports or perks. Creating a max cape variant requires the max cape, max hood, and the original item in the player's inventory. Any max cape variants sold back to Mac will only return the max cape and hood; the other item used to create the max cape variant will not be returned. Purchasing every variant of the max cape would cost 29,616,224 coins.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If a player attempts to purchase a max cape before reaching level 99 in all skills, Mac will say "None of yer bis'ness." when asked what is in his sack.
  • Any item used on the max cape that would normally produce the "Nothing interesting happens." message, will say "That doesn't seem to do what you want it to." instead.
  • Despite being a Members object, the max cape can be used to enter the Crafting Guild on Free-to-play worlds in place of a Brown apron or Golden apron.
  • When the max cape was released in October of 2015, there were only around 150 players that had achieved 99 in every skill.
  • Upon purchasing a max cape for the first time, the Wise Old Man, Hans, the Gielinor Guide, and Bob the Cat will congratulate the player via magic:
    • Wise Old Man: Hello?
    • Player: Huh, who's there?
    • Wise Old Man: It's Dionysius here. I'm using my magic to communicate to you. Don't worry.
    • Player: What are you doing in my head?
    • Wise Old Man: I just wanted to say congratulations <player name>. I've been watching you in your adventures - very well done.
    • Hans: Oh very well done <player name>. Taken you a while, but I knew you could do it.
    • Gielinor Guide: Ahhh <player name>, I knew you had potential when I first met you. My compliments on reaching the pinnacle of your achievements.
    • (If Dragon Slayer II has not been completed):
    • Bob the Cat: Meow!
    • (Alternatively, if the player is wearing a Catspeak amulet):
    • Bob the Cat: Oh most excellently done old chap!
