This week we focus on Master Skillcape Perks! A while back we asked you all for ideas/suggestions of what perks to add for each 120 skill as well as improving some of the 99 skillcape perks and here's what we've done!

Skillcape Perks changed

  • Agility - No longer fail any agility obstacles (this has been rolled out to work on every obstacle in game)
  • Constitution - Retains the current effect, but the healing now continues to work in combat
  • Construction - Has a chance to save planks when building in your player-owned house
  • Crafting - Provides a chance to cut all gems in your inventory at once and provides unlimited thread
  • Divination - Wisps will now last a fixed amount of time when first harvested from
  • Firemaking - Fire spirits give better rewards and will act as a light source
  • Fletching - Provides a chance to make extra bolts, arrows and darts
  • Hunter - Increases the effective range of your traps by 2 tiles
  • Prayer - Retains the current effect, but acts like a First-Age Cape if owned
  • Thieving - All drops are noted, and stacks with Ardougne Cape if owned

Master Skillcape Perks

  • Invention - Gives an increased chance of receiving uncommon and rare components when disassembling
  • Dungeoneering - A chance to choose which boss you face; increased chance of lore drops inside Daemonheim and Elite Dungeons; and the ability to wear your cape inside Daemonheim
  • Slayer - Gives a chance to choose your task from a Slayer master each time you receive a new one
  • Master Quest Cape - Brings a range of lore-related teleports into a single item, allowing you to teleport to the Legends' Guild, the World Gate, Varrock Museum, the Empty Throne Room and several more

Patch Notes

One of the perks of Twitch Prime is also a free subscription to a Twitch streamer every month. So, why not support one of our brilliant content creators? Check who's live now and show your support for them. You can find all the details on how to subscribe to a Twitch channel here.

I feel there is a line between mundane and overpowered. They just haven't found it.
Still underwhelming.
Thieving is fine, Firemaking is fine..ish.
I still don't see myself using most of them, ever.
Maybe I'll have to rethink my Max Cape.
