Name of Cape: e.g. Attack Master Cape (s) [s stands for smuggled]

Requirements: Attain level 120 in a F2P skill (104,273,167 xp)

Cape stats: Tier 30, same as Veteran cape (10 year) - Armor 6, Style bonus 3 each

Cost: 120,000 dungeoneering tokens and 120,000,000 gp (120M)

Perks: None, no base cape perk, no emotes, untradable, Can be keepsaked

Cape seller (for all capes): Dungeoneering Rewards trader, Marmaros

On death: Always lost, need to completely repurchase again

Traditional level 99 capes of accomplishment is Not Sold. Members only.


Pros:

-Easy to code, no change in design
-Gives veteran pure F2Pers something to aim for
-Can insert members advertisement, encourage F2P to buy a cheaper version by signing up for members now
-Low tier, no perks and ridiculous cost to discourage members from buying them

Cons:

-Somewhat takes away the prestige of master cape from members
-Only affects a small number of players

Suggestions welcome

Edit 1
: Alternatively, cost can be changed to bonds/RuneCoins to support Jagex directly. Master Cape overrides available for all (provided level 120 requirement is met of course). Even easier for devs to implement.

No support to any form of f2p 120/"master" capes.

If you want to wear it so badly, just get membership.

Given that the cost to insta-buy a bond is around 25M while the proposed cape costs 120M, it negates your monetary argument completely. Could be possible to change the cost to bonds/RuneCoins to support Jagex more directly, and you get a cosmetic override instead of an actual cape. Members may find it useful too, target market enlarged.

Just because you may not be able to afford a bond for membership, doesn't mean they need to make these f2p/add a f2p variant.

If bonds only cost 25M max for membership, why would I propose for the cape to be valued at 120M? I also edited the proposal to include it as a cosmetic cape override that cost bonds/RuneCoins, further devaluing your argument that money is the limiting factor.

no support

if its really something you want get members

The “If you don’t like F2P, get members argument”
Similar to: “If you don’t like members, don’t play the game”, or “If you don’t like my proposal, don’t comment on it”
Unhelpful, not constructive and you obviously did not read Edit1, which changed it to a paid cosmetic override which would support Jagex in a more direct manner.

Its very helpful. We can now use analogy of

Ftp malevolent armour. Or ftp nox weapons. Etc

No if you want member items the way round it is to be in that catagory. Be a member. Its why its there. Same for everything

There's no need to be constructive its that simple. Cosmetic override or nit. Who gets master capes for the purpose???? No one they have them as a cosmetic overide... lol
