The Concept

I know I'm definitely not the first person to suggest this, so this concept won't be a new one to many people. Once you hit 200 million experience in a skill, your master cape in that skill should essentially "trim" itself to become and even more impressive version, to represent your fantastic feat. It would NOT be an entirely new cape, just a fancier version of what you already have. Even something simple would suffice! (Isharial suggested just add a star above the skill symbol)

I actually suggested this a long time ago, before 120 capes even, and before I even had a 200m. I kept the thread going for about two years before I finally took a bit too long to keep it up. I've finally decided to recreate it.

I'm not an artist, but here's something I threw together. It's not intended to be a specific design I want, it's just to get the idea across.


Alternate Suggestions
If capes aren't the answer, I'm open to other cosmetics to show off this achievement.

- Medallions/Auras/effects. I think this is referring to the Lover's/Hater's medallions, and the little heart effects that come off of it. If each skill had it's own medallion with little symbols in the cape's colors that came off of it, that'd be pretty cool. by Saviours

- Wings: I would actually be okay with having this instead of my suggestion. Used in conjunction with a cape, it's basically the same as trimming it. by Saviours

- Crowns. Each one colored or styled for the skill it represents. by Krystelle

- Titles. I don't like this idea as much because you need to talk in public for them to be more noticeable, but its acceptable, and would probably get more approval. by Saviours

- Cosmetic outfit to match the current 120 cape. This idea is okay but most players prefer to mix and match their own fashionscape outfits. I would imagine many players with 200M wouldn't want to wear it. by soul-toktzt

Alternate Suggestions (cont.)

- Teleport override. Personally, I hate teleport overrides but almost everyone uses something other than default so it's not a bad idea. However, it's only visible for a few seconds. I'd still probably use it if it was all I had. by Basma

- Walk animation. This would probably have to not be skill specific, you just unlock it if you have a 200m. Interesting concept, but I think a lot of people wouldn't really want to use it. by Basma

- Comp Cape Theme. Toggling will make the cape have the respective skill symbol on the back, and recolor the particle trail to match. There would be issues incorporating it into trimmed comp though, and players without comp would be unable to use it. Maybe just a new, single 200m cape with toggleable themes? by Zara

Arguments

- There are too many capes in the game already and we don't need more. A different reward may be a better approach.
This is somewhat valid, although it doesn't add more capes to the game any more than trimmed skillcapes do, which seems to confuse a lot of people. A counter argument can be made that capes are a lot more noticeable than other things, and more versatile than most other items in terms of fashionscape. I'd probably be okay with it either way.

- Jagex shouldn't support getting max xp as an official accomplishment.
I can understand this, but I don't agree with it. People will go for the capes they want and not the ones they don't. If they feel 200M is too extreme, they won't do it. Look at the Trimmed completionist cape. Lots of people go for comp, but not trimmed comp. Besides, it's all purely cosmetic.

- It affects too few players.
I remember when the max cape was released in 2011, 6000 people could wear it. 8000 people have 200M in Dungeoneering alone. This argument is invalid.

Could 200m exp capes ever be a thing? Or something else that's specifically a reward for 200m exp in a skill?

Mod Osborne: We've got to be careful not to make 200m the true endgame for RuneScape. It's a stretch goal for a player: a huge achievement. If we bring out something with stats and benefits, then we're effectively saying that 200m is the new expectation. I want to avoid this, but I think there is a nice cosmetic middleground.

Mod Kieren
replied to a Reddit post from 2016 about 200M xp capes saying "Love to do em one day, but it is the usual argument of, that is a lot of capes x2 for male and female and not many players have or go for 200ms. I am totally for rewarding players that do get there though but I reckon it would be more of a spare time project."
It's also worth noting he works on Old School, not RS3.

I like the idea of having something to show off for 200m XP in a skill but I don't believe capes are the best way to go. Mainly because, most skills capes that are bought are never really used and just sit in bank/ keep sake. Instead of capes an alterative idea is titles, wings or something like the lovers medallion. But, each of these ideas has their flaws.

Titles - A simple way to add in game but most people want to show off their achievement and title isn't as .. flashy in a way.

Wings - In my opinion, after capes, wings would be the next best alternative as a weapon/ armour override doesn't suit well for non cb skills. Issue with wings is it may be difficult to design for all the wings.

Medallion - Another simple way to add in the game, but not sure how much the community enjoys these affects as it is already.

No support. Imo, we dont need something, more importantly a cape, for every milestone you get.


Even though I like the idea of 200m milestone capes, this is true. I'd rather not see a large amount of developer resources spent on them when there are more pressing things to work on. If we ever get them, awesome. If not, whatever.

Agreed.

Dont get me wrong, id like a reward for 200m, i just dont think capes should be the answer to everything.

I really like this.

I like & support this idea, but it'd help if you could describe how different master capes will look at 200M.
That's not really up to me, which is why I didn't have any written ideas for it. It's really something you need to SHOW. However, it wouldn't make the cape look really different, just a fancier version of what you already have. Otherwise it may as well just be a separate cape and that's not what I'm after.
