All my friends are all saying that the Max cape will be removed soon and I just want to say I don't think thats a smart move alot of people grind just for the max cape. Maybe Still keep the option for the max cape look because not alot of people don't pvm they are mainly here for the skills and it kind of kills the mood for the people who just wanna go for max and not comp. And also getting rid ofQuest Cape and Master Quest cape and replacing it with LORE CAPES also doesn't seem like a smart move either people love their capes the way it looks the it may seem easy for some people but the rest of it is Just a little sickening and a complete mess Legend of the Seeker is Still awesome :)

Not gonna lie they shouldn't even mess with the max capes or the quest capes or even master quest cape it Just throws away one of the games main purpose for accomplishing skills in the game to get rid of the look just kills part of the excitement :/

Your friends need to slow down a bit. Nothing is set in stone, though the current proposal is to discontinue the existing completionist and max capes.

But will they Keep them the same Look or change the name? Because if they just take the whole thing out of the game for some ugly looking side piece like the Lumbridge or Varrock Capes Freely given then the looks and one of the main concept good feeling of the capes won't be fun anymore. Legend of the Seeker is Still awesome :)

From the proposal, which you can read in full at
https://docs.google.com/document/d/10w4AOBW7hHdPA2mGETaSQhmf4J38H9-i6HpqLVC-Bis/edit
:
Original message details are unavailable.
We’ve spoken about all the improvements we’re making, but what about the existing Completionist and Trimmed Completionist Capes? We don’t want to abandon them, or devalue the accomplishments of the players who have them.

So, our current pitch for the existing Comp and Trimmed Comp would be to effectively ‘freeze’ them. The current Comp Cape and Trimmed Comp Cape would become ‘Legacy’ versions of themselves and be renamed appropriately. These Legacy versions would:
- Keep all their existing requirements
- Would still be obtainable and could still be worn post-rework.
- Would never have any of their requirements added to, changed, or removed.
- Wouldn’t have stats or non-stat benefits, but you’d still have access to them thanks to the changes proposed earlier in this document.

This means that, if you already have a Comp or Trimmed Comp Cape, you get to keep it and, if you’re close to getting one, you can keep working towards it.

Thank you for posting a quote specifically about the comp capes in a thread about the max cape.

So, we’re getting new capes? What if I want to wear my old cape?
The Quest Cape, Master Quest Cape and Max Cape (and their old appearances) will no longer exist in game. They’re effectively being replaced by the Lore-1, Lore-2 and Skills-1 capes. If you’ve keepsaked these capes, we’ll refund you. The old Comp and Trim capes will remain in game as legacy versions (see above).


The refunding keepsake keys seemed to imply they were doing that. Though its just a draft so they can be persuaded to stop that.

They'd be nuts to remove the max cape appearance with customizable colors,they should just keep it as a legacy version. I think there will be enough backlash against it so I doubt people have to worry.

Just look how well the last time they "updated" skillcapes went, they had to add in legacy versions cause people were so disgusted by the new cape designs. History will repeat if they do this with a new max cape and delete the old item from the game. Just keep the old max cape as a legacy item with customize colors as is Jagex.

I'm curious what they will call the npc max in varrock if the new one will no longer be max cape.

Max is still Max but he just will not have a "Maxed Cape" on his back, and I think he will still be doing the same skilling things 24/7. :)

The point being Max's efforts will not be wasted. He will just be playing the same game the same way. Losing or getting a cosmetic cape replaced really doesn't mean anything practical.
