Fastest?[edit source]

No less than 11 of 24 skills are listed as being "one of the fastest" skills to level. That seems a little exaggerated. To paraphrase character in "The Incredibles," when everyone's special, no one's special. Perhaps we could save "fastest" for the top two or three contenders and tweak the others back to simply "fast"?

I Agree with that Farxodor 21:28, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

Two are listed as 'the fastest', those being firemaking and construction. I'm not sure, but I think construction if faster if you have the money up front, as you can stand in one place to train the skill all the way to 99.

Don't these seem underpowered?[edit source]

We get our skill all the way to 99, and just for the stats of an obby cape?

I suppose, but it was almost the same thing with the legends cape and obsidian cape.=/Santa hat.png Powers38 おはようヾ(´・ω・`) 03:59, 4 June 2009 (UTC)
At least now you can get a 99,000 coins cape rather than an expensive obby cape.-- 14:53, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
They are supposed to show skill, not really help in combat. Get a fire cape or soul wars cape if you have a problem.

Un-Headed[edit source]

I thought these where called capes of achievment --Rune full helm.pngUser:Mrs Skilly 08:55, 7 October 2007 (UTC)

Check the Knowledge Base... JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 10:35, 7 October 2007 (UTC)
Kinda freaky, but yeah... Wait, if you look through the history and then click on the current revision, it still shows up! EDIT: See the Yew Grove for info. Sir Revan125 19:15, 21 October 2008 (UTC)/Sir Revan125 21:20, 21 October 2008 (UTC)

Separation[edit source]

Seeing as each cape is an individual item, with a different name for each, shouldn't they all have their own individual pages? This would bring them into line with the rest of the articles in the Wiki. It would also mean that this article could be made to look a lot tidier. Dechaineux 15:04, 27 October 2007 (UTC)

I get the idea; perhaps also an additional paragraph on the end of each page about the trimmed cape, and an animated image somewhere close to the top. These could even have their own category. Faiylen 22:13, 18 November 2007 (UTC)

Hello and I agree with you[edit source]

Why[edit source]

I agree with you because it will clean things up with the articles. I'll see if I can add another link to it.

Just another question[edit source]

Is there a redirect page to this?? Thanks!Derilith 02:19, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Capes of Accomplishment or Capes of Achievement?[edit source]

I think it is confusing that sometimes in the article the capes of Accomplishment/Achievement are said as different things such as the bit in the first paragraph where it says Capes of Achievement are members only and in the same paragraph it says Cape of Accomplishment (or skill cape) is a cape that can be obtained from special masters when a player has achieved the highest merits in a skill I think that it should be changed to just one name.

Agreed, it should be consistent. I think the confusion arises from how the capes were released with the name "Achievement", but are now referred to as capes of "Accomplishment" in the Knowledge Base (might have been the other way around). Probably the latter should be used throughout the article. Skill 09:04, 19 March 2008 (UTC)

Do we know the release date? somewhere in 2003 I believe... Kong No Foo 17:52, September 29, 2010 (UTC)

Skill Capes for f2p rumor??[edit source]

I recently visited runehq. They says that wc, smithing & etc capes that available in f2p areas are for f2p! I wonder if this is true. Can anybody check this? o0squiggle0o

Not true. Just because they're in f2p areas doesn't mean that f2pers can get them (fansites aren't 100% reliable anyway). --Drummer (speak) 13:27, 29 April 2008 (UTC)

skillcapes are going to become f2p dont delet this... its true, go to runescape forum, mod mmg said it... also i asked mod mmg's friend and he confirmed,17,359,58520341

Prove it. I want to see links, screenshots, the whole bit... I really want to see proof before we add this to the wiki. Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 18:35, 5 April 2009 (UTC)
"MMG wishes to make Skill Capes available to free players. This is unconfirmed from a player." The way I see it, it is still unconfirmed which means that we shouldn't add it to the wiki since it is disputed and the information can't be verified. Just because someone says it might happen, doesn't mean it will. Rollback crown.svg Spencer (Talk | Edits | Contribs) 19:23, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Untrimmed[edit source]

Now that we know Slayer capes can be untrimmed, I wonder if the same can be done with hitpoints. Can it be done? I haven't seen one yet. AriasCombatSwords.pngKnight 00:14, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Pest Control makes it possible. I don't know what it looks like though. Dtm142 01:00, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Can't it also be done if the player doesn't buy his/her first 99 skill cape and gets hp first? I'm pretty sure thats another way. Revenant-Drag.png MonsterMan RS Name theskk 2 Quest point cape.png 01:29, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

If you train all your other combat stats (strength, attack, ranged) relatively equally this shouldn't be a problem. Doing the right quests (with hitpoints xp rewards) would make it even easier. My HP is currently one level higher than any of my other combat stats because of both factors. In fact, this is the reason why it's almost impossible to get an untrimmed slayer cape: hitpoints will probably hit 99 before any other stat if you fight controlled. --Ashura652 21:41, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

The Slayer Cape Untrimmed is not as unlikely as it seems- due to Soul Wars, as well as the usage of certain forms of attack (such as the Dwarf Cannon) that lower the amount of Constitution exp you recieve per damage done. -FrOsT_DrXgon

I think it would be cool[edit source]

hmm, untrimmed hp cape would look nice... but like above said, you would need to train every stat pretty much the same, and do the right quests, also use any reward stuff like genie lamp and knowledge book on hp anytime you could, youd have to start pretty early on untrimmed hp cape to get it right Super Afroman 21:50, 14 June 2008 (UTC)

How exactly does that help the article? --Drummer (speak) 22:28, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
Not hard at all. I've been fighting on controlled since 84 att/str/def, and I'm about 815k from 99hp.--nekobawt 21:34, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

'Reaper skillcape'[edit source]

It seems pretty obvious that this was just a joke. Can I remove it, please? WWTDD? 00:59, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

Images[edit source]

Should skillcape images be taken with or without their respective hoods?

Got one!Got one too!

Skill Cape Trim in F2p[edit source]

My membership will run out in 15 days and I need to know if getting another 99 will get my cook cape trimmed if I was a non member. My friend told me no as it is a members only feature.

It should do, but bear in mind the cape is a members object and if you take it off you won't be able to put it back on. --Gold ore.png Mercifull UK serv.svg (Talk) 09:24, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Well,It seems as though skillcapes are only members currently but apparently will become free aswell but not yet so i think this awnser is a no. Liam - Beta Tester (talk) 7:39, 5 April 2009 (UTC)

Your first cape will be trimmed as soon as you get 99 in another skill. You don't need to buy a second cape for the first one to become trimmed. I know this from experience. :p Magic Luvdogmilk Thieving 03:08, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Adding Sprites for Capes[edit source]

I think that for the chart that has the locations of all the capes and who gives them to you, we should also put a picture of the sprite for each cape trimmed and untrimmed... Like this Defence hood.png Defence cape.png Defence cape (t).png Rune scimitar old.pngMXIIARune scimitar old.png 20:49, 7 March 2009 (UTC)

99 Strength, 1 Attack[edit source]

-You cannot get a skillcape of Strength without level your attack, am I right? The seller is in the Warrior's Guild, and you need a total attack+strength level of 130 to enter. Should we put this in the article? The Myth

I think the rule is changed that if you have one 99 in either Attack or Strength, they will let you inside. I might be wrong though. ~MuzTalk 22:16, 6 April 2009 (UTC)

Yes, they let you in whenever you have either one of them 99. So yes.

My First 99[edit source]

I'm about to get 99 Strength in the next sooo excited--Swiz Talk Review Me 20:21, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Congratulations! ^^ --Raian the Fallen 20:24, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

F2P skillcapes[edit source]

Mod Mark just said here (near the end) that skillcapes will not become free-to-play Frown --Iiii I I I 20:59, September 10, 2009 (UTC)

Tab[edit source]

How about a tab for the number of players who have that 99 at the time?

You have to admit the term "no life cape" does not belong on any wiki.

Joke or real?[edit source]

At the bottom uder trivia there's something about clicking "random objective" and getting a funny message. Is this really true? 06:44, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, it's true, but you need to have all 99s. See this link for proof Tokkul detail.png Inhaps talk 15:05, February 6, 2010 (UTC)

Rarity of skillcape reasons[edit source]

Hey, It says that Construction is the most expensive skill to train. This is untrue, as you can get construction to under 100m easily at the moment

Herblore, however is costing at least 300m a peice. Please may I suggest this is changed :P

Hazz80.176.234.167 23:57, March 10, 2010 (UTC)

You can train construction much more cheaply if you are using methods far under your current level, such as oak larders. Herblore CAN cost more by making extreme potions and overloads, but can also be trained by cleaning herbs from farming or monster drops, or bought as grimy from the GE or other players.

Not only can this be far less costly, but it can also be profitable. Based on current prices, there is a loss involved in selling flatpack pieces in construction, while oak furniture is much faster experience, is a commonly accepted method of training construction, and provides a reasonably minimal loss.

3-way Split[edit source]

Discussion moved to RuneScape:Requests for splitting/Cape of Accomplishment

Regarding Frequency numbers[edit source]

Many of these numbers are too great when checked on the highscores, a revision is needed.

99 Slayer is NOT Easy?[edit source]

Honestly, Slayer's difficulty is only 4 stars? Slayer is as slow as Runecrafting, or I should say it's even slower, only 15k exp per hour. The difficulty should be 5 stars, and why RC gotta be 5 stars but not slayer while you make more profit with runecrafting? Please fix this

No self respecting player averages 15k/hour. An accepted rate is around twice that, although that's still undercutting it. 01:06, June 4, 2010 (UTC)
Agreed ^ High levelled combat, chaotic weapons from dungeoneering, extreme potions from herblore, cannons from questing, and familiars from summoning all work to increase the speed that slayer tasks are completed. Completion of smoking kills also awards reward points that can be used on slayer experience.
A player dealing 50K lp (500hp) a minute (not hard btw) is gaining 30K slayer xp/hour. That's about 20 hits of 25 on average per minute, which is easily obtainable using the methods mentioned above.
Finally, while training slayer, the player is also training other skills including melee, ranged, magic, prayer, not to mention collecting charms for summoning. When you consider these benefits from slaying, IMO the difficulty involved in slaying is offset by its usefulness in providing for other skills.
DeathByLivid (96 slayer) - 07:18, August 3, 2011 (UTC)

Trivia[edit source]

The trivia states that Thok's dungeoneering cape is trimmed. However, this is not the case as the untrimmed version has a black trim (strange as it is). This untrimmed cape is also displayed on cape racks. The trimmed version that we have been seeing more often has an orange trim. I think this justifies for an edit. 02:11, June 6, 2010 (UTC)

Skillcapes = Cape of Accomplishment[edit source]

Why don't we just change the name of the article to skillcape...? Even the game refers to it as a skillcape.Lord Captain Cecil Harvey 15:14, September 25, 2010 (UTC)

Frontal view[edit source]

I noticed we don't have any frontal views from the capes on the wiki, I know cape pics should be taken from the back, but skill capes also have a clearily visible frontal appearance. We could also use these images for the skill capes' hoods as it doesn't make much sense why they are take from the back as opposed to other head gear
10:07, June 21, 2012 (UTC)

If you can find someone with all 52 capes (trimmed, untrimmed, 120 dunge) then go for it. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 10:10, June 21, 2012 (UTC)
120 Dung doesn't really need a frontal view, but also got the backside view from all capes, so why not? :p Doesn't have to be done all at once obviously, just when someone has them. If someone wants to take a pic from me I can already get 5 or if you need someone to take a pic from your cape, let me know :).
10:18, June 21, 2012 (UTC)
Well only cape I have is quest cape (I know, I'm a noob), but getting close to untrimmed hp now. Will pose for that if needed. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 10:20, June 21, 2012 (UTC)
Quest cape is indeed very nooby :p, but if you got some time, could you also take a pic from my capes, please? I'll do the transies if you want.
10:24, June 21, 2012 (UTC)
Well I'm logged in now, not doing much of anything (clue scroll, bah). Username is as it says on my sig. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 10:49, June 21, 2012 (UTC)
Gotta do something now, I'll be back in 20min or so, I'll pm you if you're still online.
