26-Jul-2011 - Herald Capes and Clan Capes

Recommended Posts

Herald Capes:

 

Free players and members can now obtain a herald cape from the heralds of Falador, Lumbridge and Varrock. These snazzy garments are not only completely free, but have a huge range of customisation options that will make your cape unique to you.

 

The number of customisation options is determined by how many tasks and quests youve done in the area. If you want to unlock five customisation tiers for the Lumbridge herald cape, youll need to complete most of the tasks for Lumbridge and a few low-level quests that are in the area. Even if you do not have all tiers unlocked, youll still have options to change the many colours of your cape and the tier pattern of its background; however, only the best players have access to the stylish range of cape crests.

 

Choose a city to show your allegiance; wear a cape in its related city and you may find that youre greeted with more enthusiasm than before!

 

The herald of Falador can be found outside the Artisans Workshop, the herald of Lumbridge outside the general store, and the herald of Varrock near the east bank.

 

Clan Capes:

 

Clan members with four players or fewer will find that they cannot wear a clan cape from today onwards.

 

When designing the clan capes, we intended them to be a nifty and customizable way to show off your clan colours and insignia. That design also contained a problem: five players are required to create a clan, but we didnt prevent anyone from leaving one, so a clan could quickly shrink to a single player.

 

By doing what we think is right for clans restricting the use of the clan cape to groups of 5 or above - we would be taking away something very cool that any player, solo or clan-oriented, would want. It was our mistake to give solo players access to the clan cape in the first place, so it seems harsh to taunt solo players with a customisable cape, only to take it away with no replacement.

 

So, we've decided to offer all our players, free or members, unrestricted access to a customisable herald cape, while also reverting the clan cape to its original intention, restricting its use to clans of 5 or more clanmates. You will now find that if your clan is too small, your cape and vexillum will display the default motif and colours. We also prevent you from putting a clan cape on. You will still be able to use the vexillum to recruit, and if you recruit back up to the minimum clan size of five, everything will come back: your designs and colours will be displayed for all to see.

 

If you are a player who enjoyed the clan cape, but are not a member of a clan, we hope you enjoy the herald cape just as much, or maybe feel motivated to recruit a few extra friends on the way to creating a fully fledged clan.

It's a free cape for aesthetic purposes, not everything needs stats :P Gives me something to mess around with today anyway!

Dang I wish you could change the icon, I don't want either of the three choices. =/

 

Oh well, still looks great with my outfit.

I really hope Jagex gives us more customizable items that aren't capes. First clan capes, then max & completionist, and now these... some customizable robes would be nice :)

How much of it can F2P unlock? Can we do enough to get tier 5?

Capes are to Jagex like hats are to Valve. Still, does no harm, and it's a reasonable solution.

They're 100% F2P

Nice. I realize they're only capes, but it's always nice when F2P gets full access to a new update. :)

Fun little update. :) Not a huge fan of the design but at least it's a nice reward for doing all those menial tasks, aside from the ones already given.

I'm sure they'll only be used when aesthetics are needed (things other than combat). I guess it'll give a bit more variety in the capes seen by players.

In other news: more capes added to RunesCape!

 

The customisable colors for the herald capes are nice, but the cape itself is just flat and unappealing to me.

 

I'm really happy about the clan cape change actually. I thought it was just stupid that some noob could gather a few strangers off the streets to make a "clan" then kick everyone out so they could keep thier purdy custom made cape. Then these people wouldn't want to join an actual clan because they just love their own little cape so much. Kinda ruins the points of clans. Thankfully, Jagex changed that. You need to be in a clan to wear a clan cape.

Luckily Jagex is creating them and had some compatability issues. So we won't be getting them for a while. :rolleyes:


I'm like a hot mess, but without the alcohol.

Yes, tier 5 for all the herald capes are available in F2P. The requirements can be found here.

 

The common thread for tier 5 seems to be Dragon Slayer.
