Like all skill capes, the Attack cape gives +9 to all defensive stats, and also a +4 bonus to prayer if it is trimmed, which requires a separate skill at level 99. The cape is automatically trimmed if this condition is met.
When the attack cape is equipped, it will negate the need for warrior guild tokens when accessing the basement and 2nd floor[ in the ]Warriors' Guild, allowing players to stay within the Cyclopes area for as long as they please.
As of 1 September 2018, there are 88,181 current members that have achieved level 99 in Attack.
- Initially, the attack cape was supposed to provide free access to the cyclopes that resided on the top floor of the Warriors' Guild, and not the basement. Attempting to access the basement while wearing the cape resulted in Lorelai stating "I don't care what Kamfreena is offering upstairs, you need tokens to fight my cyclopes. No exceptions." This was hotfixed several hours after, as it wasn't made clear in the initial poll, causing misinterpretations.
