Cape of Accomplishment
Capes of Accomplishment (more commonly known as a Skillcape among players) is a cape that symbolises achieving the highest possible level in a particular skill (level 99), the completion of every quest (269 QP), every Achievement Diary, or unlocking all the in-game music. Capes of Accomplishment are members' only items.

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 his/her 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.
As of 15 June 2019, Runecraft is the least common skillcape with 13,465 players having 99 Runecraft; however, the number of players with the quest point cape, achievement diary cape, and music cape is unknown.
As of 6 February 2017, the top five least common skillcapes are Runecraft, Construction, Mining, Smithing, and Agility, respectively, while the five most common skillcapes are Strength, Hitpoints, Cooking, Ranged, and Attack, respectively. This is a general reflection of the usefulness of the skill, and the difficulty it takes to train the pertaining skill.
If a player holding a skillcape dies to another player, and it is not protected on death, 11,800 coins will appear on the floor for the killer.
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]
- 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. Each cape comes with a special
Perks[edit | edit source]
Each cape has certain benefits. For example, the Firemaking cape will act as a light source when equipped, 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:
- Construct. cape
- Crafting cape
- Fishing cape
- Fletching cape
- Hunter cape
- Magic cape
- Strength cape
- Herblore cape
- Quest point cape
- Achievement diary cape
- Music cape
- Max cape
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: Construction, Herblore, Crafting, Fletching, Slayer, Woodcutting and Farming.

Joke Skillcapes[edit | edit source]
While these capes resemble the skillcape, possess a skillcape emote and were technically obtained after gaining 99 in a level, they are considered as a joke and are not qualified as a real Cape of Accomplishment. The only known "joke" skillcape so far is the Cabbage cape, released during the 2016 April Fools event.

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 99000 coins each, buying all the skillcapes will require 2,574,000 coins, excluding the Max cape. With the Max cape, it would cost 4,851,000 coins for every skillcape.
