If the glory of a owning a skill cape was not reason enough for you to regularly take it out of your bank, we've given each cape a small perk to make them that bit more useful!
Skill Cape Perks
Since their release skill capes have been a great way to show off your accomplishments in RuneScape, but as great as they look they haven't always been the most useful items. In an effort to give you more reasons to show off your accomplishments more regularly, we have added perks to each of the skill capes in game.
