There are many different types of capes in Maplestory. They are used, just like any other piece of armour, to provide extra protection to the character. Many are rewards for certain quests, while others can be obtained through Gachapon or monster drops.
Capes are sought after by many permabeginners as they don't require characters to be a specific job, only level, to equip them. Some of the higher level capes can fetch well into the millions in the Free Market.
A full list of capes can be found below or at this link: here along with all the attributes that each gives.
There are also a variety of capes that can be bought from the Cash Shop.
