SkillCapes - Overrated?

Recommended Posts

I'm often called a noob because I don't wear a skillcape...

When players are above level 100, they are "supposed to have" atleast one 99.

Skillcapes are just too common and too easy to obtain.

 

People with 99 in a skill:

Strenght 151K

Cooking 126K

Attack 107K

Fletching 103K

Constitution 97K

Woodcutting 93K

Defence 80K

Ranged 68K

Magic 66K

Firemaking 48K

Fishing 36K

Hunter 19K

Prayer 17K

Thiefing 15K

Slayer 11K

Crafting 11K

Mining 9K

Summoning 9K

Smithing 8K

Agility 8K

Farming 8K

Herblore 6K

Construction 5K

Runecrafting 4K

Dungeoneering 500

 

Total: 1094K Skillcapes :shock:

Not a miracle you see them everywhere...

i have cooking and thieving capes....its quite surprise that thieving cape is not so common because its one of fastest skill to train and it doesnt cost anytihng.

thieving is good choise for getting somewhat uncommon cape with easy work without cash...in that rarity list above it shows that all below thieving are either very slow to train or they cost high money.

 

i have plans to get 99 construction some day just because of cape rarity...only reason its that rare is cost of skill since its draining alot of cash not many has been able to get it even though its one of fastest skill to train once you have all material.

I have partyhats instead of skillcapes, but they're basically the same thing. I'm proud to show off my accomplishments, and for many people they're one of the most important goals in the game. Some people don't play with a skillcape or omething similar as a goal but that's fine too, RuneScape is an open ended game.

I wouldn't exactly call Merchanting a accomplishment, but that's merely my opinion. I'll admit I want some capes just because it looks good with an outfit, but there's also ones where I do it because I like the idea of the skill. I'd love to get 99 RC because the cape is damn hot, the profit is great and I dont mind RC'ing. The problem though is I neither have the time or patience to accomplish it without it spanding over 5 years.

 

I don;t have any skillcapes because, frankly, getting them is pretty tedious and boring. Merchanting your way to 1B+ takes a good amount of skill and considerably less time invested.

 

Besides skillcapes and phats, there are plenty of other more minor tokens people work for - think POH, Firecape, etc. Major goals are what motivate most people who play RuneScape to some degree to continue playing.

Plus they kinda look like crap, but meh

 

Look like crap? Many capes are looking great....Way better than sw, fire or especially ardy.

They could look better IMO, they all have same basic template, Slayer for example could be slashed and torn to fit the skill as if it's seen some battles but sadly it doesn't.

That would be brilliant, capes with different appearances dependent on the skill, make them more than just a cape as they are now.

Two things:

 

1. This thread again?

2. You again?

 

All of my 99's are byproducts of me slaying. All of my future 99's will be byproducts of obtaining some useful item(s) or ability, like 99 Herblore and Dungeoneering.

 

Oh, and:

 

2. You again?

What I mean by that is, SkillCapes weren't added into the game with JaGeX's intentions of players specifically getting a 99 to wear the SkillCape. Sure, it probably crossed their mind, but that was not their intention.

 

 

 

Where'd you get this? Your ass?

That is RICH. I'm quoting that.

if its not an accomplishment i would like to see YOU merchent several billion + get into the rares market by building street value.

 

Yeah I suppose any chump can do that, just like cooking :rolleyes:

yeah, even excluding the wealth building aspect, buying a partyhat in today's market takes longer and is more difficult than any quest or boss (perhaps excluding solo corp).

The only thing about them that gets me is when people say, "Nice X cape." Instead of, "Nice 99 X."

 

I train skills to 99 as something to do really. Working on 90+ melee while doing Slayer and Farming on the side to break up the monotony. I wanna start GWDing for money.

From the time I reach 99 Defense and HP to the end of August I'm going to try and get a bunch of 99s.

I think a lot of people say nice cape instead of nice 99 because they can see it, and probably 99% of the time your wearing it. But say you were to say in quick chat "I have 99 slayer" I doubt people would respond with nice slayer cape, but rather nice 99 slayer.

Seconded. I enjoy merchanting, and use partyhats as my "skillcape", because earning a living in the market takes considerably more skill then cooking 100,000 lobsters. I'm sure Jagex appreciates rares for this reason, they give something to work toward to playsrs who want to do something other then repetitive training.

Are you stupid or sarcastic?

You really think that every rich player spent thousands of dollars buying gold. If you are then it confirms that 99.785% of runescape players are [wagon]es and 76.685% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

 

But seriously actually merching to get to billions IS one of the biggest acomplishments in this game. Less people have a party hat set (that bought it at todays prices, not saved it from years ago) then have a RC or Dungeoneering cape

Because you can buy 99's just as easily if not more easily than you can buy rares...

Total Level > Skill Capes.

 

The amount of level 80's walking round with Fletching, Cooking or Woodcutting capes thinking they're the best thing since sliced bread and bragging about their 99's is ridiculous. I'm level 109, I have no 99's, but I can almost guarentee that anybody with any of those 3 capes around my level will have a poor total level compared to me. i thnk it's about time people who prefer to train all their skills get some recognition, for example, skill total capes.

The cape= the 99 to just about everyone. You're really playing on words and trying to criticize something, here.

As a matter of fact... you can buy easily the materials to 99s, but you still have to train them. Achievements are relative to the individual also. A player cheating to get 99 hunter and a legit player training his way to 99 will both have the same end results, except one of them might be a little prouder...

I think he was saying that more people sell accounts with a 99 in skills like hunter, fishing, woodcutting, strength etc. (and for cheaper prices) than partyhats.

 

Anyway I suspect that Golvellius is

Every one of my 10 capes I got either because I LOVED the skill (Slayer/QP cape) or because that was part of a goal I enjoyed getting.

If Jagex appreciates rares then why don't they make new ones every year?

(Dont read the next line, just close your eyes and believe in the pure goodness of rares)

 

Because your wrong.

Now lets all be touched by the fact that Jagex won't delete them for the sake of a few legitimate owners. :cry:

God save the rares so the chinese can buy water! :thumbup:
