Capes of Distinction
A distinct series of new capes have been added to the members’ game, including milestone capes for those who train every skill, the Classic and veteran capes for those who started playing RuneScape a long time ago, the max cape for players with 99 in all skills, and the completionist cape for those who have seen and done it all.
If you voted in the recent Guaranteed Content Poll, you’ll know what this one will look like! Head over to Hans in Lumbridge (the first NPC to be mapped down in RuneScape!) who’ll sell you one of these fine capes for 50,000 coins – though your account will need to be five years old to claim one – then try out the cape’s emote.
Members who have at some point logged into RuneScape Classic will find themselves able to talk to Iffie in Varrock’s clothes shop about buying a Classic cape (for 50,000 coins). The Classic cape comes with a suitably Classic emote.
These are a series of nine cosmetic capes that are earned each time all of your skill levels reach a multiple of 10. You can only wear these capes if all of your skills’ levels are all equal to (or higher) than the level of the cape – e.g. you’ll need all skills at or above level 10 to wear the milestone cape (10) all the way up to 90 for the milestone cape (90). To make a milestone cape, take some balls of wool to a loom and weave yourself one.
So, if the above isn’t enough for you, and you’ve trained all RuneScape skills to level 99, then you should try to hunt down Max in Varrock. He’s obsessed with skilling and rarely stops for a breath, but those who can catch him smithing, alching or otherwise training in East Varrock will find he will sell them a max cape. It’ll set you back 99,000 coins times the number of skills in RuneScape, which adds up to 2,475,000. In line with existing skillcapes, this cape also features an emote – this cape somehow manages to show off all 25 skills!
Still not enough? Well, if you’ve gone beyond RuneScape’s skills and have completed all quests, Tasks, mini and hidden quests, have unlocked all music and spellbooks, and performed a number of other such feats, you might be able to claim rightful ownership of a completionist cape. This ancient cape was enchanted by the mage Dahmaroc himself (of Shattered Heart fame), but only recently unearthed and put on display on the top floor of Varrock Museum. Head there to try to claim it! If you do have what it takes, make sure you’re also carrying a spare 5 million coins... The emote for this particular cape should be suitably showy for those who are able to wear it.
And There’s More...
We’re not quite done yet! A few more things that might interest prospective cape owners:
- The max and completionist capes share a colour scheme, but this colour scheme can be custom coloured by you. Pick the colours to assign to the four different parts of these capes to personalise it, and these colours will be reflected on both capes (and hoods).
- Overall, the max cape is second only to the completionist cape in terms of stats.
- The completionist cape also counts as a TzHaar fire cape (for fighting ice strykewyrms), Ava’s Accumulator (i.e. it collects arrows, but not junk), and has the same teleport options as the Ardougne cloak 4!
- All capes can be stored in your player-owned house’s costume room.

The Holly and Hawthorn Easter event has been removed from the game. Should you find an ice sculpture from the event on your travels, you can now remodel it with a hammer and chisel.
The Friends List has been changed to no longer state "RuneScape" next to players' names, in line with player feedback. It will now display a small "RS" logo with the world number alongside.
