99s are inefficient.

No; the only cape I dislike seeing is untrimmed strength

Also I have an untrimmed cooking cape but I wear SW now; I still don't think they're bad capes to have

I look down on using them as it's so easy to get a better cape - especially if you play enough to get a 99.

I don't think they are very special either. I don't care much for them at all. But I won't put someone down for having one.

If you think you are good because you have a 99, I won't take you seriously regardless of the 99, but in my opinion untrimmed cooking (and some other common untrimmed capes) make such bragging even more stupid.

Range was my first... :D

On topic: I don't so much mind the skill cape, but when people try to throw it in my face. Like seriously, I had this guy come up to me the other day with Full Guthans, a Cooking Skillcape, Brackish Blade, Barrows Gloves, DFS, and Ammy Fury (or). Now, yea, he had some money, but I asked him to buy his Brackish Blade and he just laughed and said shut up noob get some stats. So of course, that pissed me off, since he had 1 99, and had maybe 60M. <_<

I only look down on them if the person wearing it thinks they're awesome for having it.

Other then that...I don't give a [bleep] at all about it.

No.

Cooking was the first skill I got 99 in, and I'm proud of it. Granted it's no longer my "favorite" skill and I don't wear the cape any longer, but that isn't because I'm ashamed of it, or don't consider it an achievement. I basically just wear the skillcape from the latest 99 I got... when I got 99 Woodcutting, I started wearing it instead of my Cooking cape, then moved on to Magic, etc.

Honestly, it really only matters what you think about. The "greatness" of an achievement is relative. Simply because you or I might think a skill is "easy" or quick to get doesn't mean that that person had an easy time getting it, or didn't spend a lot of time on it.

Edit: On another topic, it also really, really bothers me when people with 99 Cooking look down on other people for having 99 Cooking. A lot of the time their excuse is, "Well, it wasn't my first 99," but really... that doesn't make any difference in my opinion.

Take two people. One person gets 99 Runecrafting first, and then gets 99 Cooking. The second person gets 99 Cooking first and then gets 99 Runecrafting. Why does that make the second person's (who get 99 Cooking first) achievement any less great?

I do look down on these people mainly because they could have spent their time on something better than cook or fletch.

Most cases people just want a 99 to say they have a 99. After that they stop and go camp abbies or something till they get all their combat stats to 99. This breed of player is in my opinion the worst kind because it shows no dedication to anything and accomplishes nothing.

As far as the skill is involved I can't say its a bad 99. Like people say a 99 is a 99 and its one of the few buyables I have left to do. I plan on getting it done in the not too distant future.

I used to think they were stupid and nooby, but now I am indifferent. Cooking is definitely the easiest, and probably overall the fastest (in terms of having to make money to do pray/herblore/cons and charm gathering for summ) 99 skill. Is it really a noob achievement? Or is it a good, true achievement?


Most people with untrimmed cooking capes (or tirmmed cooking/fletch capes for that matter, at least the ones that WEAR them) got the cape just because they felt like a noob without a skillcape, so went for one of the easier skills. So yes, I look down on it, because they got it just to (more or less) keep up with the joneess of RS.

Make note of the word most. Also, I realize I don't know for a fact that most people with unrimmed cooking skillcapes got it just to feel less nooby or keep up with the Joness, but none-the-less I believe it to be true, for what is in my opinion (lol) a good reason. I do however realize there are exceptions to this, and that my general assumption could even be wrong.

If I actually met a guy who got a cooking skillcape just because he liked cooking, I think I'd respect that. (Not gonna lie though, I'd feel different about a girl who got 99 cooking because she liked it.)

Squab unleashes Megiddo! Completed all quests and hard diaries. 75+ Skiller. (At one point.) 2000+ total. 99 Magic.

The rest of my sig. You know you wanna see it.

I pretty much agree with this. I don't care (nor does it affect me) one way or the other, but I really only have "respect" ( :rolleyes: ) for useful 99's, 99's that the person actually enjoyed getting, and 99's for the purpose of maxing total.

I actually think the emote is pretty sexy imo. Cape itself isn't too bad either.

I don't look down on it but it's not something I 'respect'. I'm bored of seeing cookery capes about, stuff like agility and farming capes look far nicer in my opinion.

Oh look, untrimmed [insert skill] cape. How stupid.

Seriously? No, I don't look down on any cape. I look down on idiots who thinks less of "easy" capes and who praise and worship "harder" capes.
