In RuneScape, there are many different types of capes and cloaks. This guide will explain about the different kind of capes and cloaks around RuneScape, the stats they give, and where and how they are obtained.


Freeplay Capes

Regular Capes

First off, these capes are the basic kind of cape around RuneScape, the only capes accessible to freeplay. These can be dyed into six different colors:

  • BlackCape (black)
  • Blue Cape (blue)
  • Red Cape (red)
  • Yellow Cape (yellow)
  • Purple Cape (purple)
  • Orange Cape (orange)
  • Green Cape (green)

The original cape which you can dye is black. You can obtain the black cape from killing Highwaymen. Then dye them by going to Aggie, located in Draynor Village to get the dyes. She will tell you how to make them.

Wilderness Team Capes

The capes you see here, are mostly for clans. Wilderness capes range from cape #1-50. When worn in the wilderness, other players who wear the same cape as you cannot be attacked, so if you're in a clan, no "accidents" will happen. When another player is wearing the same wilderness cape, their dot on your mini-map is blue. You buy these capes in different ranges of wilderness off merchants, say for example, you buy something of merchant 8, all his capes have 8 in them, so he sells cape 8, cape 18, 28, etc.

The capes come in five different colors:

  • Pink
  • Gold
  • Blue
  • Green
  • Red
Wilderness Team Capes

They sell for 50gp each. For more information on the wilderness capes, please check out the Wilderness Team Cape guide.

God Capes

The god capes represent the three main gods of RuneScape: Saradomin, Zamorak, and Guthix. To get these capes, you must have 60 magic. Then go to the Wilderness Mage Arena and defeat Kolodian to obtain it. When you have picked which cape you want, you will get a god staff with it, either it being Saradomin, Zamorak, or Guthix. However, if you do so die or drop the cape, you must return to the wilderness mage arena and pray at the god statue to obtain it again.

Cape of Legends

This is the only white cape in the whole game. This Legends Cape is the third best cape in RuneScape. To get this cape, you have to finish the Legends Quest to obtain it. You buy it at the Legends Guild store for 675gp. So when you finish the quest, go and buy yourself the only white cape in the game and wear it with pride and honor. These cost a lot less than the Obsidian Cape and only give 2 less bonus points than the Obsidian Cape so just use your money on this instead, unless you want to show off your wealth.
