|Examine||A cape worn by those who've achieved 99 in all skills.|
A max cape is a cape sold by Max in Varrock and by Elen Anterth in the Max Guild. It is available to players who have attained at least 99 in all 26 skills (it does not require 120 in Dungeoneering). It has an emote which shows off the player's expertise in each skill. The minimum Total Level a player needs for max cape is 2574. When purchased, it comes along with a corresponding hood. The minimum amount of experience required to wear this cape is 338,895,206.
Equipping the cape will unlock Maxed [Name] title, which has the same requirements as the cape. This title can be used without wearing the cape once unlocked, and will re-lock when the cape is unable to be worn. The cape also offers a teleport to the Max guild by right clicking it - arriving next to the skill portals inside the guild garden.
There are two ways to buy the cape and hood, first way is by locating Max. He will move from location to location in eastern Varrock. Once spotted, Max will offer to sell qualified players this cape for 2,574,000 coins, which is 99,000 coins (the price of a typical skill cape) times 26 (the number of skills). Second way is to simply just buy it from Elen Anterth in the Max Guild.
Although the Max cape might be considered to be the second best cape in the game (first being the completionist cape), there are some exceptions worth noting:
- The god capes from the Mage Arena provide a higher magic bonus (31 vs 26).
- The TokHaar-Kal-Ket provides a higher melee critical bonus (31 vs. 26).
- The TokHaar-Kal-Xil provides a higher ranged critical bonus (31 vs 26).
- The Reefwalker's cape provides a 200 life point bonus and a higher armour rating (62 vs. 44).
- The Superior reefwalker's cape provides a 300 life point bonus and a higher armour rating (65 vs. 44).
- The Dragon Rider cape provides a higher prayer bonus (6 vs 5).
