The max cape is a cape available to players who have attained at least level 99 in all 27 skills. It is sold by Max in Varrock and by Elen Anterth in the Max Guild for 2,673,000 coins. It has an emote which shows off the player's expertise in each skill. The minimum total level a player needs for max cape is 2,673. When purchased, it comes along with a corresponding hood. The minimum amount of experience required to wear this cape is 374,968,717.

Equipping the cape will unlock the Maxed [Name] title, which has the same requirements as the cape. This title can be used without wearing the cape once unlocked, and will re-lock when the cape is unable to be worn. The cape also offers a teleport to the Max Guild by right clicking it - arriving next to the skill portals inside the guild garden. Chatting with Elen Anterth provides an option to toggle the Max Cape teleport between the garden and within the tower. Players need to wear their cape after (re)obtaining it in order for Elen Anterth to appear inside the Tower.

Although the Max cape might be considered to be the second best cape in the game (first being the completionist cape), there are some exceptions worth noting:

The Capes of Accomplishment each have a perk. Max, completionist, and trimmed completionist capes can hold up to three capes worth of perks by consuming it by using the respective cape on the max or completionist capes. The selected perks are then applied on any cape the player is wearing, with exception of skillcapes, master skillcapes, and expert capes (for those capes their own respective perks take priority). 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). The added perks are shared between the max and completionist capes, including additional capes if the player owns more than one of each. For a list of perks see Cape of Accomplishment#List of Capes of Accomplishment and perks.

Talking to Lady Meilyr or a harmony pillar farmer while having the cape equipped will award the following potions:

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Main article: Skillcape Customiser

The colours of a max cape can be customised by using the option in the right-click menu of the cape. In the Skillcape Customiser interface, players have the right-click option on the either of the four colour palettes to get or set a certain colour via the HSL colour algorithm (hue, saturation, and luminosity).

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The cape's emote used to be the longest emote in RuneScape, lasting 20 seconds, until the addition of the 15th Anniversary Dance emote.
  • The emote can be performed even if the player has not done the quests The Temple at Senntisten for TurmoilMourning's End Part II for making death runesAnimal Magnetism for the blessed hatchet, Plague's End for the crystal pickaxe or the All Fired Up minigame for the Inferno adze; all of which are visible in the emote.
  • The Max Guild teleport option appears even if you have not completed Plague's End, and it would be unusable.
  • The emote is updated to incorporate every new skill as they are released. To date, Divination and Invention have been released after the Max cape.
  • After a player buys their first max cape, their Adventurer's Log reads:
    For the first time after training all skills to level 99, I bought a max cape.
  • The cape features the first emote that temporarily creates NPCs for the purposes of the emote who can then be examined.
  • When a player reaches level 99 in all skills, a message is broadcasted across all servers: News: Player has just achieved at least level 99 in all skills!
  • The check to see if you had the requirements to buy and wear the cape made sure you had the required total levels. This check however, did not take into consideration that the dungeoneering skill cap was higher than 99. This allowed some players to buy a Max Cape without being Maxed by using dungeoneering levels above 99 to count towards their total level. This was fixed very shortly after the bug was found.
  • Upon performing the emote, it always makes the player character face east.
