True skill mastery is an achievement greater than skill mastery, obtainable by reaching level 120 in any skill. The achievement was first released on 12 April 2010 with the Dungeoneering skill and later expanded when master capes were released for other skills on 28 April 2014.

Once a player reaches level 99 in a skill, they may continue training to level 120 and purchase a Master cape of Accomplishment. The capes can be bought from the existing skill cape sellers for 120,000 coins. Dungeoneering, Invention, Slayer, Herblore, Farming, and Archaeology are currently the only six skills that have levels past 99 up to 120. True skill mastery for other skills is achieved when the virtual experience requirement for level 120 is met.

The amount of experience required to achieve true skill mastery in any non-elite skill is 104,273,167. This is approximately eight times the experience needed to reach level 99 on a normal experience curve.

Invention, as an elite skill, has its own unique experience curve. The amount of experience required to reach level 120 Invention is 80,618,654 (23,654,513 less experience than (virtual) level 120 in other skills).

Master capes look different from an ordinary level 99 skill cape: the skill symbol is located lower than on an ordinary skill cape, with particle smoke emitting from the bottom of the cape. The Archaeology, Dungeoneering, Farming, Herblore, Invention, and Slayer master capes also have unique emotes and perks, while other master capes share their emote and perk with their skill cape counterpart.

Reaching the requirement for a skill that only has virtual level 120 gives the message: Well done! You've achieved 104,273,167 XP in [skill]! You can now purchase a Master Cape from the respective skill master. For a skill that goes up to 120 the message is Well done! You've achieved level 120 [skill]! You can now purchase a Master Cape from the respective skill master.

Players with (virtual) level 120 in all skills have at least 2,895,994,163 total experience.

History[edit | edit source]

Jagex polled players about plans to add Master capes to all skills.[1] The option to add the capes passed with 63% of the votes. On 28 April 2014 the Master cape of Accomplishment was released. These capes are awarded for reaching the experience needed for level 120, which is 104,273,167. Skill levels are not increased accordingly, and most master capes do not have their own emotes.

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
  • patch 6 July 2020 (Update):
    • Removed a reference to 'virtual levels' upon levelling up in skills that reach level 120 without virtual levels.
  • ninja 10 April 2017 (Update):
    • The broadcast text for achieving virtual level 120 in a skill has been updated to mention level 120.
    • A global broadcast for achieving virtual level 120 in all skills has been added.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • There was once a glitch in which, upon reaching level 115 Dungeoneering, the player was told that they were level 120 on the hiscores.
  • Only six true masteries, namely the Dungeoneering, Invention, Slayer, Herblore, Farming, and Archaeology master capes have a unique emote due to those skills continuing up to level 120. The other skills have a virtual level, and the skillcape emote remains unchanged at the virtual level 120 in those skills.
  • The maximum total virtual level (having every skill at 120, and Invention at 150) is 3,390.
  • On 14 March 2016, the message received upon achieving true skill mastery was changed to specify the skill rather than the generic "this skill".
