Artisan's cape detail.png

The Artisan's cape is an Expert cape of Accomplishment that shows the wearer has achieved level 99 in multiple related skills. For the Artisan's cape these skills are Cooking, Construction, Crafting, Firemaking, Fletching, Herblore, Runecrafting, and Smithing.

To get the Artisan's cape, players must train any of these skills beyond level 99 using a method that gives a chance to obtain a skill shard for each skill. Once one shard per skill has been obtained, players can combine them to create an Artisan's cape, and a matching cosmetic hood. The shards required to make the artisan's cape are the roasted, designed, carved, fiery, fletched, herbal, runic, and molten shards.

The Capes of Accomplishment each have a perk. The support, gatherer's, artisan's, and combatant's capes can hold up to two of those perks, from their respective skill sets, by consuming a cape by using the respective cape on the relevant cape. Master Capes of Accomplishments can be added, and will retain the perks of both the standard and master versions when added. If the standard counterpart is already added, then adding the master version will replace it.

The Cape of Accomplishment cannot be retrieved, which means that switching perks effectively costs 99,000 coins each time or 120,000 for master versions (extra capes are easiest to get from Elen Anterth's store in the Max Guild). For a list of perks see Cape of Accomplishment#List of Capes of Accomplishment and perks.

The Artisan's cape has the same stats as an ordinary skillcape, and is also capable of boosting its associated skill by +1 for a short period of time.
