This article is about the location. For the quest, see Shilo Village.

Shilo Village is a village on Karamja. It is only accessible to players that have completed the Shilo Village quest.


Getting there[edit | edit source]

There are six forms of transportation to Shilo Village: Vigroy's cart, the Lady of the Waves, fairy ring code CKR, Karamja gloves and juju teleport spiritbags, and the wicked hood (Nature Altar) .

Vigroy's cart[edit | edit source]

Players who have completed the Shilo Village quest may use the Shilo Village cart system, which is run by Vigroy at the Shilo Village end. For a price of 10 coins, he will take the player to Hajedy in Brimhaven. The reverse trip is also possible. This makes it easy for the player to access Shilo Village if they first use Catherby Lodestone, then travel the ship to Brimhaven or teleport to the Karamja Lodestone and then walk north until they get to the fruit tree patch and then east. Alternatively, if the player has planted a Spirit tree in the patch in Brimhaven, they could just walk north-west of it to reach the cart.

Lady of the Waves[edit | edit source]

Seravel chathead.png

Talk to the fishing shop owner, Seravel, upstairs from the Shilo fish shop to buy a ticket on the Lady of the Waves. It costs 25 coins, and the player can go to either Port Khazard or Port Sarim, by presenting the ticket to the boat west of the Shilo Village.

Fairy rings[edit | edit source]

The fairy ring CKR, south of Tai Bwo Wannai, can be used to reach Shilo Village, but you will have to walk around the south and enter by the east gate. One can use the tunnel on the north-western part of the Shilo Village borders, when the player has completed the Elite Karamja Tasks and achieved level 74 Agility, which is boostable.

The fairy ring CJS within the Kharazi Jungle (requires partial completion of both A Fairy Tale II - Cure a Queen and Legends' Quest as well as 5 bittercap mushrooms in order to repair the ring if not already done). After teleporting, run west and exit the jungle north to reach Shilo Village.

Karamja gloves[edit | edit source]

Karamja gloves 3 provide a teleport to the underground part of the Shilo gem mine. This can also be used to reach Brimhaven by taking Vigroy's cart.

Juju teleport spiritbag[edit | edit source]

You can teleport to the Herblore Habitat area using a Juju teleport spiritbag. From there, you can climb over the vine to the north of Papa Mambo and walk in a western direction all the way to Mosol Rei. You can then right-click Mosol Rei and choose the enter-village option to enter Shilo Village.

Slayer cape[edit | edit source]

The Slayer Cape can be used to teleport directly to Duradel (or Lapalok after While Guthix Sleeps), in the north eastern section of the village.

Gnome glider[edit | edit source]

Take a Gnome glider to the Gandius location (requires completion of The Grand Tree quest) and run west past the overgrown idol and then south until you reach a river with stepping stones which you must cross (you may fail the obstacle, however it does not require an Agility level). After successfully crossing the stones, run directly east to the broken cart that must be crossed to enter the village.


Training spots[edit | edit source]

There are several areas to train skills in Shilo Village:

The gem mine[edit | edit source]

Main article: Shilo Village mine

In the north-west corner of Shilo Village are seven gem rocks. Players who mine these rocks (level 40 Mining required) get gems instead of ore. Players mining gems here may obtain the following gems:

After completing all of the Karamja Tasks up to hard difficulty, players may access a second gem mine found underneath Shilo Village. This mine contains 8 gem rocks, placed along the outside perimeter of the dungeon. Players may access this mine with the teleport function on their Karamja gloves 3 or by a ladder found near the surface gem mine. This also contains the entrance to the Gemstone cavern where gemstone dragons are found.

Common ways to deal with the gems are to cut opals, jades, and red topaz into bolt tips and keep the uncut sapphires, emeralds, rubies, and diamonds to bank and later sell. Another way is simply to fill up the inventory with uncut gems, bank, and go again. A gem bag is also useful - by cutting the semi-precious gemstones (opals, jades, red topaz) into bolt tips and adding the uncut precious gems to the bag, players can avoid banking for as long as possible. Gem bags are bought with Dungeoneering Tokens.

Furnace[edit | edit source]

Players can train Smithing by using the Shilo Village furnace directly across from the bank. It is the closest furnace to a bank in the game (9 squares).

Fishing spots[edit | edit source]

There are 3 Fishing spots in Shilo Village. At these fishing spots, fly fishing rods and feathers can be used to lure trout and salmon, or fishing rods and fishing bait can be used to catch Pike. Although these fishing spots are quite far apart from each other, fly fishing in Shilo Village is considered to be one of the fastest ways to train Fishing; see Pay-to-play Fishing training. Also at the fly fishing spots you can catch rainbow fish, this grants 80 xp per catch and is fast, all you need is a fly fishing rod and stripy feathers.

Combat[edit | edit source]

Players can train their Ranged, Magic, or Melee skills by safespotting the Undead ones over the gate. They are vulnerable to the Salve amulet, and can also be safespotted with a halberd.


Shops[edit | edit source]

The shops in Shilo Village include a general store, fishing shop, and antique store.

Obli's general store[edit | edit source]

Obli chathead.png

Obli's General Store sells everything that a normal general store sells, and more. The most notable things are the charcoal and papyrus, used in the Legends' Quest. It also sells packs of 50 vials, both filled with water and empty, which respawn very slowly. However, the maximum quantity in the shop is 20 packs of each, amounting to a total of 1000 vials.

Fernahei's fishing hut[edit | edit source]

Fernahei chathead.png

Fernahei's Fishing Hut sells a small selection of fishing equipment: fishing rods, fly fishing rods, fishing bait, and feathers. When fly fishing the shop can be used to top up the used up feathers. Trout, pike, and salmon can also be sold to this shop.

Antique store[edit | edit source]

Yanni Salika chathead.png

Yanni Salika owns the antique store in Shilo Village, and is also the starting point for the One Small Favour quest. He will trade players coins for several old quest items from both Shilo Village and Zogre Flesh Eaters.

Paramaya Inn[edit | edit source]

Kaleb Paramaya chathead.png

Kaleb Paramaya runs the Paramaya Inn in the northern part of the village. The inn has no use after RuneScape Classic, but Kaleb still sells wine and beer. Players also come here to claim their Karamja gloves 2 after completing the Medium Karamja Tasks.

Slayer Master[edit | edit source]

Duradel chathead.png

Shilo Village also contains the third highest level slayer master, Duradel.

Players with a combat level of 100, as well as a Slayer level of 50 can get Slayer assignments from the now third highest levelled Slayer Master Duradel. He is upstairs in the house that has the Slayer Master mark on it on the minimap. From the fishing shop go up the ladder and cross the bridge to get to Duradel.

After While Guthix Sleeps, Duradel will be replaced by Lapalok who gives identical assignments.

Obelisk[edit | edit source]

Shilo Village contains a small obelisk on the west side of town for recharging Summoning points. Occasionally, Pikkenmix will appear by it and offer to let the player play Familiarisation, a summoning Distraction and Diversion. If Pikkupstix gives the clue: "I hope the villagers' defences hold against those zombies.", the D&D is started here.

Music[edit | edit source]

This is the list of music you'll hear in Shilo Village.
