One Small Favour is a humorous quest in which you are asked to complete a favour, although things turn out to be less simple than that.

Details Edit

Start point Quest Go to Shilo Village and talk to Yanni Salika.
Official difficulty Experienced
Description If you're fresh to Shilo Village after solving the mystery (or even if you did it some time ago), you may like to check out Yanni Salika's antiques shop.

He's a busy chap revamping antique items, checking out new stock from potential adventurers and maybe he'll have a small1 favour to ask of you? Probably nothing particularly large, Yanni isn't a demanding2 person, should hardly take you any time3 at all really, something to do when you have a spare moment.

That's assuming there aren't any complications.

1: - Perception of the word "small" may be open to interpretation.

2: - In a recent vote, Yanni Salika was only voted the second most demanding person in Shilo Village.

3: - As everyone knows, time is relative.

Length Long
Requirements 36 Agility-icon Agility, 25 Crafting-icon Crafting, 18 Herblore-icon Herblore, 30 Smithing-icon Smithing, and have completed Rune Mysteries, Shilo Village (quest) and Druidic Ritual.

Walkthrough Edit

One Small Favour Route

The so-called "small path" transverses across Gielinor.

Karamja Edit

Items needed: A good pickaxe to mine the gems, and some form of teleport to Port Sarim, such as a glory to Draynor and walking there, a Rimmington tablet/house teleport, or some coins to ride a ship there.[1]

  • Travel to Shilo Village, and talk to Yanni Salika in the antiques shop north of the river. He will ask a small favour—get some red mahogany logs from a forester south of the village. (Tip: After you've spoken to Yanni, it would be great to mine the gems BEFORE you depart Shilo.)
  • Go outside the village to the south, and talk to a forester there. You are asked to take a blunt axe to Captain Shanks and get it sharpened.
  • Go due west to the ocean, and there will be a ladder. Go up the ladder, and talk to Captain Shanks. He will tell you to go to Port Sarim and get the axe sharpened yourself. Buy a ticket from him (45 coins) or teleport to Port Sarim anyway you can.

Asgarnia and Misthalin Edit

Items needed: Pickaxe, Lumbridge teleport (optional),[2] Varrock teleport, 3 steel bars, Falador teleport, 1 harralander, 2 guams, 1 marrentill, a bowl of hot water (Farmer Fred has water source, Farmer Seth has a range to boil), Empty cup (drink a cup of tea), Camelot teleport.

  • Speak to Brian in the axe shop in Port Sarim. He is too worried about his friend, who is being convicted of a crime and deciding to go to the Wilderness to avoid trial, to sharpen your axe. Agree to help him by saying, "Ok, ok, I'll do it! I'll go and see Aggie." Brian will keep the axe for safekeeping, so make sure you give him the axe or you will be unable to proceed further.
  • Speak to Aggie the witch in Draynor Village about being a witness. She will help you if you agree to find her apprentice, Jimmy the Chisel who has gone missing looking for supplies.
  • Go to the H.A.M. Hideout (east of Draynor Village). Go to the southeast corner, and speak to Johanhus Ulsbrecht regarding Jimmy, and ask, "And I suppose you need me to do you a favour?" He will let Jimmy go if you provide his cult with a month's supply of chickens; he suggests talking to Fred the farmer.
  • Exit the H.A.M. headquarters, and go east to Lumbridge. Talk to Fred the farmer who does not have enough chickens (North of Lumbridge castle. The house with a bucket and a water drop on the minimap). He tells you to go to Seth Groats (located on the other side of the river in the chicken coop across from the cow field). (Tip: Before visiting Seth, drop by the cook's kitchen from Cook's Assistant, grab a bowl of water, and heat it on the stove. Get a pot too!)
  • Talk with Seth Groats.. He wants you to give 3 steel bars to Horvik in Varrock to make some cages for the chickens.
  • Speak with Horvik located in the armour shop north-east of Varrock Square. He is very ill and needs a herbal antidote and some pigeon cages to modify into chicken cages. Pigeon cages can be found in the garden behind Jerico's house, immediately south of the northern bank in East Ardougne.
  • Go to the Apothecary in Varrock regarding Horvik's illness. He gives you the herbal tincture but drops the breathing salts. Agree to get a new airtight pot.
  • Go to the Barbarian Village, and talk to Tassie Slipcast the potter. She is too worried to show you how to make an airtight pot because she is being pressured by a dwarf called Hammerspike Stoutbeard in the Dwarven Mines.
Dwarven Mines

Hammerspike and company is located on the far west end of Dwarven Mine.

  • Go to the Dwarven Mines. Head to the westernmost cave past the anvils until you see Hammerspike Stoutbeard surrounded by Dwarf Gang Members. Ask him about Tassie Slipcast, and tell him, "Oh, come something nice for Tassie." Then, ask him, "Have you always been a gangster?" He will tell you that he always wanted to be a druid.
  • Go to Taverley, and talk with Sanfew who is on the first floor of the central hut with the herb icon. Ask him if he's taking any new initiates and accepts dwarves, and tell him that a dwarf you know wants to become one. He will allow Hammerspike to become a druid apprentice, but he wants you to give a Guthix rest tea to Captain Bleemadge on top of White Wolf Mountain and organise a trip for Sanfew down to the Feldip Hills.
  • Use the bowl of hot water with an empty teacup (one spawns in the building north of Sanfew), add 1 harralander, 2 guam leafs and a marrentill. Once you have the tea, travel to the top of White Wolf Mountain. Speak to Captain Bleemadge, and give him the tea. He will want some T.R.A.S.H (Triple Redundant Aero Super Hawsers) for the trip down to the Feldip Hills.
Note: Low levels should be aware of white wolves while travelling on the mountain.

Kandarin Edit

Goblin Cave Map

Petra is located in the same room where Bouncer and Slagilith are found.

Items needed: Coins, Camelot teleport, Ardougne teleport, a ring of dueling, chisel, and some extra jades, opals and red topazes.

Note: If you have yet to get the five pigeon cages, go to the house directly south of the northern bank in East Ardougne.

One Small Favour Landing strip repaired

The landing strip, fully repaired.

  • Go west until you see a landing strip with a gnome. Talk to him, and he will tell you he needs to repair the landing strip. Search each of the eight landing lights for a gem, cut it, and put it back in the landing lights. The gnome can sell you a chisel and spare gems for 500 gp each if you happen to crush them. 
NOTE: Bringing extra jade, opal, and red topaz gems with you avoids the cost.

Completing the favours Edit

Items needed: Comfy mattress, iron oxide, Ardougne teleport, animate rock scroll, a good pickaxe/weapon, armour and some food, Camelot teleport, hammer, 1 bronze bar, 1 iron bar, 1 steel bar, weather report, Falador teleport, pot, soft clay, airtight pot, Varrock teleport, breathing salts, herbal tincture, 5 pigeon cages, Lumbridge teleport, chicken cages, some means of transportation or teleportation to get back to Port Sarim and Shilo Village, sharpened axe, and red mahogany logs.

One Small Favour misfire

The player misfires the spell and animates Slagilith.

Slagilith fight

A possible safespot for fighting Slagilith.

  • Talk with Gnormadium to tell him the runway lights are fixed.
  • Go back to Rantz to get the comfy mattress.
  • Speak to Tindel in Port Khazard to get the iron oxide.
  • Take the iron oxide to Wizard Cromperty in Ardougne, and he will give you an animate rock scroll.
  • Next, you will need to fight a level 92 monster that is weak to crush attack and uses melee, so stop by the bank, get some food, and equip some decent armour and a weapon or pickaxe. Fighting with a pickaxe is recommended; however, low levels should use magic from the safe spot shown above. The Slagilith has a maximum hit of 26, is hard to damage, and if you leave the room or take too long killing it, you will have to start the fight over. Travel back to the Goblin cave south of Fishing Guild and cast the animation spell to begin the fight once again after defeating the Slagilith. Cast the spell in front of the rocks once again to release Petra.
  • Go to Seer's Village, and speak to Phantuwti. He now can't give you the weather report because his weather vane is broken. You'll have to threaten to run him through, and ask him, "Why can't you get a clear picture?" Then, ask, "Which special Seers tools do you need?" and "What do you mean?" Finally, he'll tell you about his weather vane. Climb the ladder, head east, and climb another ladder to the roof of his house. Search the weather vane, use a hammer with the weather vane, and search it again to get three broken vane parts. Go to an anvil (closest is across the street) with a bronzeiron, and steel bar, and use the parts of the weather vane with the anvil. Go back to the roof of the house, and put the weathervane pillar, the directionals, and the ornament back on the weathervane. Talk to Phantuwti again for a weather report.
  • Take the report to Arhein in Catherby who will send somebody to send T.R.A.S.H to Captain Bleemadge.
  • Talk to Captain Bleemadge on top of White Wolf Mountain.
  • Talk to Sanfew in Taverly, and he will agree to let the dwarf become an initiate.
  • Talk to Hammerspike in the Dwarven Mine. He has changed his mind about becoming a druid, and his dwarven gang members will attack you. Defeat them to have Hammerspike agree to not harass Tassie.
  • Go to Barbarian Village, and talk to Tassie who will teach you how to make pot lids. Use the soft clay given to you on the wheel and then the unfired pot lid on the pottery oven. 
  • Go to the Apothecary in Varrock, and give him the pot in return for the salts.
  • Go to Horvik, and give him the breathing salts, herbal tincture, and pigeon cages.
  • Go to Seth (his farm is on the east side of the River Lum), and give him the chicken cages.
  • Go to the H.A.M. headquarters, and tell Johanhus that you've managed to swing that chicken deal; he will agree to set Jimmy free.
  • Go to Draynor Village, and talk with Aggie the witch who will agree to help Brian.
  • Go to Port Sarim, and tell Brian to get the sharpened axe.
  • Go back to the forester outside Shilo Village, and you receive some red mahogany logs in exchange for the sharpened axe.
  • Speak with Yanni in Shilo Village to complete the quest.
