The Defence cape (t) is the trimmed Cape of Accomplishment for the Defence skill. It is the trimmed version of the defence cape. It can be purchased for 99,000 coins alongside the Defence hood from Harlan the Melee instructor or Elen Anterth in Prifddinas by players who have achieved level 99 Defence and also have one other level 99 skill.
The Defence cape can be easy to acquire compared to other combat skill capes because it can be trained with every combat style.
The cape also has an emote, lasting 5.42 seconds, during which the player uses shields to defend from various attacks such as arrows and rocks. The Defence cape must be equipped in order to perform this emote.
Talking to Harlan 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 Defence cape (t)'s perk provides the effects of a sign of life/portent of life once an hour, and unlike them, it is not destroyed upon activation. It has a 1 hour cooldown, shared with the sign of life, portent of life, sign of death, and the portent of death. It cannot activate in PvP areas, except for Deathmatch.
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.
