Summoning: Does it stack with Modified Shaman's head & spirit gems?

All stacks! :)

Thank you! Then I want this perk to remain as is ;)

Mining > useful if you're going for 120, but very marginal increase.
Smithing > utterly useless, nobody does gold bars @ 99 and if you have the gauntlets they already work with blacksmith gear I believe. (like cooking does)
Fishing > decent if going for 120 and the second catch also provides xp ( IDK if it does)
cooking > useless, because after 99 with gauntlets you pretty much don't burn anything to begin with.
Firemaking > Useless. one fire on one spot? what the hell?
invention > decent as said in previous post.
Summoning > decent for 120 if it saves a fair amount (IDK percentage)
DG > could be useful, but pretty sure most dungeons are useless so this would save you around 5 seconds. (except steel dragon cave in brimhaven dungeon, then it saves you a minute orso)
Farm > situationally useful, don't know a lot of people doing allotments after 99 though.
Div > useless. div materials are already cheap and the effort of equipping the cape etc is just not worth the hassle.
Woodcutting > useless. bird nests/geodes are crap to begin with and ARC doesn't give them.
QP > decent if you do ToG, but doubt a lot of people do.

but the main issue I have with skillcape perks is:

WHY THE BLOODY HELL DO I HAVE TO USE A CAPE ON MY MAX/COMP EVERY TIME I WANT TO SWITCH? WHO CAME UP WITH THAT CRAPPY MECHANIC? JUST PUT IN A 99K GP COST OR SOME SHIT INSTEAD OF HAVING US GO THROUGH 50 LINES OF DIALOGUE EACH TIME TO BUY ONE CAPE.

planks on ironman is indeed a good comment.

you're 99 smithing and you're doing mining at LRC? what? ironman I guess again?

RC is then pretty decent, but badly described, never used it :)

ranged is useful on a max cape, I can see that, but bolts can be picked up with area loot and they're not expensive to begin with. I suppose you could use it if you're cheap haha :p

Magic is only useful if you don't feel like changing over via the thing in priff/don't have access or do not have the invention things... maybe also useful at other sources if you have to switch whilst doing something? idk where though :/

It's use is limit, but having the option of Ava's functionality on a Max cape sounds decent overall.Sebastiaan said:

As an example, I like it for Farming. Usually I prefer to be on the normal spellbook, but for Farming I want to be on lunars. What I did is I added to magic cape to my farming preset, and now I can very quickly change to and from lunars before and after a trip. Especially when Farming frequently, it's nice not having to visit the Cadarn family.

In my opinion the mining one is the most "powerful" perk of all the capes, I like it.
Also I haven't tried the fishing cape, but does it give double exp with the double catch if you wear the shark outfit?

It would be nice to have some shortcuts to use the capes on the max/comp ones because I use the slayer one and there's a ton of clicking to go through

As for invention, I feel like the 120 Cape should have a little better bonus than the 99..i mean.. It's 120

For the other perks, most could be improved a little, because I feel most perks are not really used after 99, they look like mid level perks rather than endgame

Just my umble opinion

Yea I can see the ranged cape on max cape have some uses, considering everything else is pretty limited.

Magic cape for farm is decent too I guess. I never do allotments/herbs anymore so I don't need to be on lunar for example.

overall most have some uses somewhere, but in general they are pretty limited. especially compared to OSRS in my opinion.

Can you make construction cape work when you send butler to sawmill to make planks please? Even when I have it on he charges 1500 per log :(

The other capes I am ok with and better than nothing we had before unless there was a way to make slayer and DG capes have less clicks on the teleport options but not a big deal.

I guess it's also a different in opinion as to how good they should be. I personally don't think all capes need a perk that's useful on a regular basis to efficient maxed out players with access to everything.
