Defence cape detail

The Defence cape is the Cape of Accomplishment for the Defence skill. It can be purchased for 99,000 coins alongside the Defence hood from Harlan the Melee instructor north of the Lumbridge general store (now located in north-west side of combat academy) by players who have achieved level 99 Defence. Defence capes are light blue in colour, and have a cream-coloured trim if the player has more than one level 99 skill.

The Defence skill is relatively easy to train in minigames such as Pest Control and Soul Wars. It is relatively fast and easy to achieve, and is thus the 7th most common level 99 cape.

The cape also has an emote, lasting 5.42 seconds, during which the player uses shields to defend from various attacks such as arrows and rocks. The Defence cape must be equipped in order to perform this emote.

Should a player achieve a second level 99 after Defence, the Defence cape will become a Defence cape (t). The trimmed version has a white trim and adds a +2 Prayer bonus to the original cape's stats. If a player already has a level 99 while achieving the Defence cape, the cape received will automatically be the Defence cape (t).
