The Combatant's cape is an expert skillcape that shows the wearer has achieved level 99 in multiple related skills. For the Combatant's cape, these skills are Attack, Constitution, Defence, Magic, Prayer, Ranged, Strength and Summoning.
To get the Combatant's cape, players must train each of these skills beyond level 99. Once level 99 has been reached, a skill shard has a chance of dropping during each action that rewards experience. Only one shard will be found for each skill. Once each shard has been obtained, players can combine them to create a Combatant's cape, and a matching cosmetic hood. The shards required to make the combatant's cape are the sharp, vital, rigid, imbued, holy, aerodynamic, strong, and summoned 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. This is done by using the relevant cape on the expert cape. The Cape of Accomplishment cannot be retrieved, which means that switching perks effectively costs 99,000 coins each time (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 Combatant's cape has the same stats as an ordinary skillcape, and is also capable of boosting its associated skills to level 100 for a short period of time.
The Combatant's cape cannot be re-obtained from Diango if a Keepsake key was used on it.
