There are several areas to train skills in Shilo Village:
The Gem Mine Edit
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.
Common ways for dealing with the gems are cutting up opals, jades, and red topaz to bolt tips and keeping the uncut sapphires, emeralds, rubies, and diamonds to bank and sell. Another way is simply filling up the inventory with uncut gems, bank, and go again.
FurnaceEditSmithing by using the Shilo Village furnace directly across from the bank. It is the closest furnace to a bank in the game (9 squares), however it is not used often due to having to pay Yohnus 20 coins for entry and the clicking to open the door. Players wishing to smelt here are recommended to ensure their money pouch has the required amount.
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.
There are six forms of transportation to Shilo Village: Vigroy's cart, the Lady of the Waves, fairy ring code C•K•R, Karamja gloves and juju teleport spiritbags, and the Wicked Hood (Nature Altar) .
Vigroy's cartEditShilo 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.
Lady of the WavesEditSeravel, 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.
The fairy ring C•K•R, south of Tai Bwo Wannai, can be used to reach Shilo, but you will have to walk around the south and enter by the east gate.
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 spiritbagEdit
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.
The shops in Shilo Village include a general store, fishing shop, and antique store.
Obli's General StoreEditObli'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 HutEditFernahei'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 StoreEditYanni 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 InnEditKaleb 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.
Players with a combat level over 100, as well as a Slayer level of over 50 can get Slayer assignments from the now second 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.
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.
