Skill Capes of Accomplishment
The Capes of Achievement are special capes rewarded to players who have achieved level 99 in a skill or completed all quests in the game. These capes are for members only. For many years, players complained about how achieving 99 in a skill meant nothing, and it wasn't appreciated with a special reward. Some players felt the same way with completing every quest. On October 18, 2006, JaGeX finally released special capes for those with level 99 in a skill or completion of all quests. They even come with a matching hood.

There are 25 different capes in total, each with its own special color. Along with colors, they come with their own particular emote, which can be activated while wearing the cape. Not only that, if you right-click a cape while wearing it and select the "Operate" option, then that skill will temporarily be raised to level 100. When you reach level 99 (also known as "max level") in a skill, you will receive a message similar to this:
Obtaining a Cape and Hood
All around Runescape are special NPC's who are considered the masters of each skill. These masters will sell you a cape and hood for the price of 99,000gp. You can only buy a cape with a level 99 skill, and you can only buy the cape of your 99 level from the master of that skill. Below is a list of who sells the cape and where you can find them.

Players who have completed every quest, including the wish list of Rag and Bone Man, can walk to Draynor Village and speak with the Wise Old Man. He is the master of quest points and will sell you a Quest Cape & Hood for 99,000gp. However, there is a small problem with the Quest Cape. Unlike the skill cape, once you get a Quest Cape, you still need to earn it. Every month, one to two new quests are added to the game. The next time you sign on, your quest cape will unequip itself if you're wearing it and place itself in your inventory. If you have a full inventory, it will be placed into your bank. If you have a full bank, the Wise Old Man will keep it and return it to you free of charge. You cannot wear the cape again until you have completed the new quest. You will receive a message like this:
As soon as a player reaches level 99 in two skills, his or her first achievement skill cape becomes trimmed immediately. Additionally, he or she will only be able to buy trimmed capes. Trimmed capes look exactly like regular capes, only they have a colored, trimmed edging. Quest capes cannot be bought trimmed, and you cannot get a trimmed Skill Cape if you have one level-99 Skill and a quest cape. Hoods cannot be trimmed. The trimmed capes can be bought from the same people for the same price. You cannot own two skill capes and have one untrimmed. The instant you buy a second cape, they are both transferred into trimmed capes.
Each cape has an "Operate" option while wearing it. Using this "Operate" option will increase the 99 skill to level 100. However, you can only active the "Operate" option for Constitution and Prayer once every minute. Along with the skill increased, the capes also benefit your stats. Each cape gives +9 bonus to all Defence stats. Trimmed capes give the same Defence stats and an additional +4 bonus to prayer. Hoods do not give any bonus.
As mentioned before, each cape comes with it's own special emote. Each emote is longer and more animated than the regular emotes, such as "dance" or "joy jump". You cannot perform any of the emotes without wearing a skill cape. To perform the emote, click on the emote tab and select the emote with a ranger at the bottom of the list.
What you just saw above is the cooking emote. As you can see, it is more animated and detailed than the regular emotes. Since we can't show you every emote, below is a list of descriptions of what your character will do during each emote.
