The Construction cape is the Cape of Accomplishment for the Construction skill. It can be purchased for 99,000 coins alongside the Construction hood from any Estate agent by players who have achieved level 99 in the Construction skill.

The cape has an emote, lasting 6.69 seconds, during which the player builds a 1x1 house around him/herself with what seems like a bronze warhammer. The cape must be worn in order to perform the emote.

Should a player achieve skill mastery in a second skill after Construction, the Construction cape will turn into a Construction cape (t), which is the trimmed version of the original cape. The Construction cape (t) has a gold trim.

The Construction hood can be attached to the cape by using one on the other, creating either a hooded construction cape or a hooded construction cape (t). It can be detached with a right-click option.

Talking to an Estate agent gives an option to toggle the appearance of the cape to a retro version, overriding the normal appearance and making it look similar to how it did before the 2015 graphical update. Despite it not being a new item, the retro cape can be used with a keepsake key.

Perk[edit | edit source]

The Construction cape's perk has a chance to save planks when building. This perk will activate when training in the player-owned house, during construction contracts, and while using the portable workbench.

Up to three perks of the capes of accomplishment can be added to the max cape, the completionist cape, and the trimmed completionist cape and up to two perks of the capes of accomplishment of a specific skill type can be added to the respective expert cape of accomplishment. This can be done by using a cape of accomplishment with the desired perk on one of the capes. The cape of accomplishment is then lost in the process. To make space for other perks, it is possible to later remove the added perks, but with no reimbursement. All of the added perks are shared among max cape, completionist cape, and trimmed completionist cape, thus it is not possible to have different configurations of perks on the different capes.
