Training spots[edit | edit source]
There are several excellent areas to train skills in Shilo Village:
The gem mine[edit | edit source]
In northern Shilo Village there are 7 gem rocks. If a player mines these rocks, they shall get a gem instead of an ore. Players mining gems here may obtain precious (sapphire, emerald, ruby, and diamond) or semiprecious (opal, jade, and red topaz) gems. Because a charged amulet of glory increases the chance of obtaining gems while mining, wearing a charged amulet of glory sharply increases the speed of mining gem rocks. Players earn 65 Mining experience per rock mined. This area is popular among many players because here they can train both Mining and Crafting (by cutting gems) at the same time.
Furnace[edit | edit source]
The Shilo Village furnace is directly across from the bank, which makes it a popular furnace for players smelting large quantities of ores into bars. A disadvantage of this furnace is that the man at the door requires 20 coins for entry, although players can put coins into a coffer in order to keep a full inventory of ore. However, this furnace is the closest furnace to a bank in the game.
Fishing spots[edit | edit source]
There are four 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, slimy eel, and cave eel. Power fly fishing in Shilo Village is considered to be one of the faster ways to train Fishing. This method involves buying large amounts of feathers on the Grand Exchange or from the eastern fishing store and then catching trout and salmon from the centre river. This fish can either be dropped or stored in the southern bank, or the gem mine deposit chest. The raw fish can then be sold for a small profit on the Grand Exchange.
Range/mage[edit | edit source]
Transportation[edit | edit source]
Hajedy & Vigroy[edit | edit source]
The cart system provides a quick transport between Shilo Village and Brimhaven for 10-200 coins (dependant on how much money the player is currently carrying with them) once they have finished Shilo Village.
Lady of the Waves[edit | edit source]
Talk to the fishing shop owner, Seravel, upstairs from the Shilo Village fishing 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 Shilo Village. This is a one-way trip and you will not be able to sail back to Shilo Village via the Lady of the Waves.

Shops[edit | edit source]
Shilo General Store[edit | edit source]
The Shilo Village 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. Crushed gems can be sold here for 1 coin each.
Fishing Shop[edit | edit source]
Slayer master[edit | edit source]
If your combat level is over 100 with a Slayer level of at least 50, then you can get slayer assignments from the highest levelled slayer master: Duradel. He is upstairs in the house that has the Slayer Master icon on it on the minimap. From the fishing shop go up the ladder and cross the bridge to get to Duradel. Completion of the Elite Karamja Diary will unlock the Karamja gloves 4 which gives the player unlimited teleports to Duradel. However some players may find this diary too time consuming to complete due to the high Runecraft requirement.
