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.

Walkthrough Edit


  • 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.
  • 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 (28 Coins) or teleport to Port Sarim anyway you can.

Asgarnia and Misthalin Edit

Note: low levels should be aware of wolves while travelling on the moutain.

Kandarin Edit

  • Travel to the general store south of Catherby bank and speak to Arhein who will ask for a weather report.
  • Go to the house north of the church in Seers' Village and speak to Phantuwti Fanstuwi Farsight who is looking for a missing person and cannot do the weather forecast until she is found.
  • Enter the cave south-east of the Fishing Guild entrance. Head north along the east wall until you come to a cave where Petra is trapped in rock. Right-click and search the sculpture to find a message saying to speak to Wizard Cromperty.
  • Go to the north-east corner of Ardougne and speak to Wizard Cromperty. He needs some iron oxide from a man in Port Khazard.

If you have yet to get the pigeon cages, go to the bank to the west and directly south of it are the cages.

  • Go to Port Khazard. A quick way to get to there is to take the boat from south Ardougne to Birmhaven and then the charter boat to Port Khazard for 400gp. Talk to Tindel on the southern dock, and he will want his stodgy mattress stuffed for the iron oxide.
  • Go to the Feldip Hills (fairy ring code AKS or ring of dueling ) and talk to Rantz, the ogre on the easternmost side of the hills. He cannot do it because there is a small man causing a disturbance which is scaring the chompy birds.
  • 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 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: bring extra jade, opal, and red topaz gems with you avoids the cost.

Completing the favours Edit

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. The Slagalith can hit 13's, is hard to damage, and if you leave the room or take too long killing it, you will have to start the fight over. Fighting with a pickaxe is recommended, however low levels should  use magic from the safe spot shown above. Cast the animation spell to begin the fight and once again after defeating the Slagilith.
  • Go to Seer's Village and speak to Phantuwti. He now can't give you the weather report because his weather vane is broken. Climb the ladder, head east, and climb another ladder to the roof of his house. Use a hammer with the weather vane 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 Arnhein in Catherby who will send somebody to send T.R.A.S.H to Captain Bleemadge
  • Talk to Captian 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 for 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. 
Warning: 'DO NOT use the lid on the pot.'
  • 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 Groats (farm is on the east side of the River Lum) and give him the chicken cages.
  • Go to the H.A.M. headquarters and give the chickens to Johanhus; 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.
