[FAQ] • [doc]

The Construction cape is the Cape of Accomplishment for the Construction skill. It can be purchased for 99,000 coins alongside the Construction hood from any Estate agent by players who have achieved level 99 in the Construction skill.

The cape has an emote, lasting 6.69 seconds, during which the player builds a 1x1 house around him/herself with what seems like a bronze warhammer. The cape must be worn in order to perform the emote.

Should a player achieve skill mastery in a second skill after Construction, the Construction cape will turn into a Construction cape (t), which is the trimmed version of the original cape. The Construction cape (t) has a gold trim.

The Construction hood can be attached to the cape by using one on the other, creating either a hooded construction cape or a hooded construction cape (t). It can be detached with a right-click option.

Talking to an Estate agent gives an option to toggle the appearance of the cape to a retro version, overriding the normal appearance and making it look similar to how it did before the 2015 graphical update. Despite it not being a new item, the retro cape can be used with a dragon keepsake key.

The Construction cape's perk reduces the cost of creating planks by 10%, stacking with portable sawmills additively. All Capes of Accomplishment can be added to a max cape, completionist cape, or trimmed completionist cape, after which players may choose to enable up to three perks.

  • Currently, 83,612 people are able to own this cape (as seen on the highscores).
  • Jagex has shortened the name of the item to Construct. cape. The reason for this is unknown, as there are many items with a name longer than Construction cape - the Dungeoneering cape is still named just that even with the 13 character skill name as opposed to Construction's 12 character name.
  • The Construction cape is the only skillcape sold by multiple NPCs at the same time (these are in East Ardougne, Varrock, Falador and Seers' Village).
  • The Construction skillcape is the only skillcape with orange-yellow trim (it looks similar to the Ranging cape trim).
  • The Construction Cape once had two separate shoulder colours depending on gender. Males had gold shoulders while females had the matching orange shoulders. This colour changed when the player switched gender at the Make-over Mage.
  • This skillcape's emote received a graphical update on 25 May 2010.
  • After an update on 2 November 2010, the cape's icon was made noticeably smaller.
