Construction cape: Misc



Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

A Construction cape can be purchased for 99,000 coins from Estate agents in several cities by players who have achieved level 99 Construction. It is the Cape of Accomplishment for the Construction skill. It is considered a sign of wealth, as it is very expensive to get 99 construction. Construction capes are a light tan colour, and have an orange trim if the player has more than one level 99 skill. They also have two different shoulder colours depending on the player's gender. Males have a gold colour while females have the matching orange colour. This colour changes if the character switches gender at the Makeover Mage. The Construction Cape's base colour closely resembles that of the Magic cape which is greyish.

  • The Construction cape is the only cape sold by multiple NPCs at the same time (these are in East Ardougne, Varrock, Falador and Seers' Village).
  • This is the third least common skillcape after the Runecrafting cape and the Herblore cape. It is probably because construction takes lots of money to advance levels, and most people deem it as a money sink due to the fact that Construction does not give as many direct forms of profit like Summoning does to defray the astronomical cost.
  • The Construction skillcape is the only skillcape with orange-yellow trim (looks similar to Ranging cape trim). The trim also looks like an untrimmed Firemaking cape.
  • At this time, there is a graphical glitch for male characters who wear the skillcape.  Compared to other capes on males, the cape sticks out further.
