Personally, I think it depends on the skill cape.

Something relatively easy, like fletching, firemaking, or cooking (my personal 3 LEAST favorite capes), I'd wear the quest cape over any day. But something tougher, like Runecrafting or Slayer, I'd wear that over the quest cape.

It all depends on our personal opinions. Seeing a skill cape for a skill that we find incredibly boring tends to raise our respect of that person, for devoting themself to getting that incredibly boring skill to 99 (even though they might enjoy the skill).


But quest cape doesn't prove that you did every quest yourself. For instance, I have 285 Quest Points, and I've NEVER done a quest w/o a guide (lolz). I'm just too lazy. But spending the time to get a skill cape proves you have devotion to a particular skill and took the time to get it.

And I'm beginning to see more and more quest capes these days - definately one of the more common capes. And with each new quest cape, I think the overall achievement of getting a quest cape (to me personally) decreases. If everyone has one, what's the point of getting one - you can't really show off if everyone else has the exact same thing.

Depends on the skill cape, in my opinion. Like sportsman said, capes such as cooking, fletching, firemaking or woodcutting are less impressive because they're so easy to get (well, not exactly easy, they just don't take such a long time) compared to the harder capes such as slayer, runecrafting, farming, etc. I'd easily prefer quest cape over the first four, but not the others, even though the quest cape requires more experience.

But the skill cape you can just forget about it after you finish. Have you seen the amount of people with barely 13M exp, who dont train even 10k past getting 99? But almost every Quester will do the new quests immediately to keep their cape.
