Like all skill capes, the Defence 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 defence cape is equipped, players can enable the cape to act as a ring of life. This option is toggle-able, and can be enabled/disabled by the player at any given time. When the effect occurs, the wearer will receive the message "Your cape saves you.".

As of 7 August 2018, there are 74,938 current members that have achieved level 99 in Defence.
