Your post just gave an English teacher somewhere a stroke. Only noobs wear noob skillcapes. if i had 99 cooking or fletching i would be embarrassed to wear the cape.

Why do you want a skillcape? Hoping people are going to look up to you?



Well, trust me, nobody is going to look up to a firemaking cape. Might as well train something useful.

as people have said dont go for a 99 just for the cape

why go for 99 firemaking not just 91 if firemaking is just a means to a end (i dont do firemaking and it is one of my lowest skills, but someone like the log burner, 200mil in in firemaking properly enjoys firemaking) i personally am going for a high range level (maybe not even 99) because i love the skill
Check it out, huge amount of effort has gone into this massive mod!

I can't nothing but agree. A skillcape is a skillcape, and that's something to be proud of. Same goes with the quest cape.

Firstly, I'm not a noob. Sheesh, the cheek of some people :shame:

Secondly, I actually respect you for training what is, to me, an exceedingly boring skill....



I personally favour fishing (no capes yet... :( ) but if I can keep to it, then maybe it wouldn't be so far off. But in the meantime I can happily browse the forums, both RSOF and Tip.it

I advise you train somewhere thats more secluded.



I personally never had that problem and I probably get insulted more day to day than you do if I was in a crowded area for long. Aswell as more good comments than bad.



Not that im bragging but pointing out I never had this problem so I suspect you in popular/crowded areas. Which attracts more idiot comments.

I say a 99 is a 99. I was 117 in p2p wearing untrimmed fletching cape cuz I wasn't afraid to say it, I ONLY HAVE 1 99! Besides, the people are kinda close if you stay in the same worlds, they'll know I'll get 99 mage soon anyway.

Wear that cape with pride \<img src=/' /> nothing wrong with getting a 99 for the cape. If you really enjoy the skill or like the cape looks I mean, why not? Even if another skill is more useful..

Wait a second..What are you guys talking about?



If someone wants a skillcape then why the hell shouldn't they get a 99 just for the skill cape?



So everyone on the top page of the highscores is an idiot for getting 99 in skills they dislike? Or for maxing out xp in skills that are 'easy' or 'buyable'?



Sure, some skillcapes are indeed more respectable, with good reason, but that's no reason to not get a 99 in an easy skill if you want a skill cape, even if you dislike the skill.



Insult people for buying an easy skill if you must, but don't insult them just for wanting a skill cape. Skill capes are sexy as hell.

I'm getting 99 firemaking (even though I'm not) cuz the cape is sexy and I love the emote. It was AzureChaos' outfit combined with the awesome emote that made me love it <3:



I like my quest cape too, I'd like a trim on it though, even though I haven't done the Achievement Diaries.

Slayer stops getting any more bonuses at level 90. But people still get 99 slayer. Why? for the cape. So i quess slayer is a "noob cape" too? Herblaw stops at level 82. So the only reason of getting 99 herblaw is for the cape? I guess herblaw is a "noob cape" too. Crafting is level 90. So getting 99 crafting for the cape makes it a noob one? Farming at level 85. So getting 99 farming for the cape makes it a noob cape? I could go on...



Also some may say they "enjoy" that particular skill. Slayer, i understand. Herblaw? Would anyone in their right mind enjoy losing millions of GP to make potions for hours? Crafting. Have fun using a needle on thousands of pieces of leather. Farming. I guess this could be considered "fun" but not really.

It's great you know what you're talking about rustiod. Everything you've said is 100% accurate a true.

That being said...your a [bleep]ing [bleep] douchebag, and none of your advice will ever (or should ever) be taken seriously because of it.

disregard good advice because the giver is a douche

THAT MAKES YOU A BETTER PERSON

I trained fletching back when it was really profitable because I was an idiot about moneymaking. I chose the skill because I heard it would make me a decent amount, and I thoroughly enjoyed training the skill except for the last level. People were excessively rude to me about it. "flethcing cape??? gf nub"

I love the cooking emote, and I achieved that cape as well. I was abused for this even more than for fletching. I couldn't understand why people needed to rub their slayer cape in my face. Why were they better? Was it just because they had played longer than me and were more interested in combat?

Finally I got my quest cape, a long-term dream of mine and my favorite aspect of RuneScape. When people learned what three capes I had, they ripped into me, in the most egregious fashion imaginable.



I'm still not sure what I've done wrong. I chased a profit, I snagged an emote, and met a goal while having a lot of fun along the way. Somehow this makes me a "sad n00b" with "no life/boyfriend" and "fat and ugly." Don't give me the line about the average player either, Tip.It-ers have perhaps given me the worst of the lot.

Someday I hope the community will grow a bit wiser. Once we shed the notions of "noob cape"s and stop comparing ourselves to other players things will change for the better. However, I fear it will only grow worse...
I love to meet people; send me a pm if you see me on RuneScape! :)

People care too much, if I see someone wearing a cooking cape I am unimpressed but I don't flame them either. It's just a game and I think people should be allowed to train whatever skill they want.

Well..I consider Agility and Fletching fun and they aren't really considered fun skills..So I guess people could easily enjoy them skills also.

I got 99 firemaking because I like to train that skill, the cape was a bonus, I also got 99 attack because I like training attack and again the cape was a bonus, everyone who insults any 99 skill should be shot.

Because its stupid to train a skill just because you want the cape, you should train it because you actually enjoy it, not to have 99 in a skill with almost no uses.

Why does anyone need to justify the reasons for wanting a skillcape?



I wasn't aware it was up to anyone else whether your own thoughts are right or not.



If it makes you happy and you don't kill anyone in the process, go for it.




I completely agree with you.



Also, I would like to add that even if you wanted to get an easy skill for the cape, it's no big deal. Last year, I decided I wanted to have a 99 cape and decided to do Fletching cause it was easy. Took me 2 months and a half since I don't play that often. Although it was an easy cape to achieve, it has probably been the only thing I have stuck to until the very end. I always give myself goals, small or big, and end up not finishing them. With this, I noticed I can accomplish things.



Ok, so the short version is: If you want to do something (legal of course), go for it. People can't force you not to do things because according to their opinion, it's stupid.
