Capes of Achievement
On the 18th of October 2006 Capes of Achievement were released onto Runescape. Those lucky, and some would say crazy people, who had devoted the time to train a skill to the incredible level 99 were able to retrieve these capes and show the rest of Runescape their achievement.
Each Cape of Achievement has a Skill Master. To receive the Skill Cape you need to find the relevant Skill Master, pay him or her 99k and they will hand you a Skill Hood and a Skill Cape. Now, each hood and cape is different, the Skill symbol is on the back of the cape and an emote unique to that Skill Cape.
While you are wearing the cape if you right click, the option to ‘Operate’ comes into view. This will boost the skill of that peculiar cape so you can ‘reach’ level 100.
You may have noticed with the capes some of them have a trim whereas others do not. That person that is wearing a cape with a trim has more than one skill at level 99, whereas someone with an untrimmed cape only has one skill to the level of 99. There is no need to worry, as soon as you get a second 99 skill your first cape will turn trimmed. Also a nice little bonus to the trimmed Skill Cape is it gives a Prayer Bonus of +4, the highest given by any cape.

The Quest Point Cape:
To obtain the Quest Point Cape talk to the Wise Old Man. Now what makes this cape any different from the rest is that every time a new Quest is released, if you are wearing the Skill Cape and Hood, it will be unequipped and a message will pop up. In order to be able to wear it again, you must complete every quest that is released.
If you have no inventory space for your hood and cape to be unequipped, they will be stored in your bank. If your bank is full as well, then you can go back to the Wise Old Man to retrieve another set for free.
The stats of the capes, trimmed and untrimmed, only vary in one stat and that is the Prayer Bonus, other than that the stats are 9+ in Stab, Slash, Crush, Magic and Range Defence.
The Prayer bonus with the trimmed cape is +4, currently the best in runescape. It is generally used for Mini-games and Slayer tasks.
