Miner's journal 1 detail.png

Miner's journal #1 is a journal obtained from killing Ripper Demons. Players do not have to be on a Slayer assignment to obtain this journal. Obtaining and reading this journal is a requirement for Don't Fear the Ripper which is required for the master quest cape.

This journal has a 1/100 chance of dropping. After 200 Ripper Demon kills, it is a guaranteed drop.[1]

Having a Lorehound summoned with the Lore Helper perk increases the drop rate.

Transcript[edit | edit source]

The following text is transcluded from Transcript:Miner's journal 1.

Bennath 3

The abbey is sitting on top of a gold mine apparently. Shame there's not a single vein of ore in sight. I don't know who the prospector got his tip from, but it's wrong. We've been hollowing out this mine for days now and I've barely seen anything more than substandard stone. Strange thing is, when I suggested we cut our losses and try somewhere else, the prospector, Mr Omnis, insists we push forward.

I don't trust him. He's always muttering to himself and checking some strange scrolls all the time. It's like he's looking for something, but what could possibly be down here?

It's been weeks now and still nothing. We've excavated almost a complete cavern and still nothing. It's not my money, the prospector is funding all of this, but why? It's just dirt and sand and, if we're really lucky, some dirt covered sand.

Bennath 23

Omnis has set up some sort of camp inside one of the side tunnels. That's weird enough, but he keeps talking to himself and laughing. Something about glory for an 'empty lord' and that his vengeance approaches.

I am starting to get creeped out by this now. I just need to stick it out a few more days and then I get paid. Soon as I get those coins I am out of here.

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
  • ninja 27 March 2017 (Update):
    • Loot beams for the lore book drops that were recently granted bad luck mitigation have been updated, in order that they clear more reliably (and generally behave like other loot beams).
  • patch 6 March 2017 (Update):
    • We have added bad luck mitigation to some lore drops so that cumulative monster kills shift the drop rate towards 100% once a certain threshold has been reached. This affects drops which have a drop rate of 1/100 (or worse). The affected drops from Ripper Demons are the Miner journals and the Diary of Jebediah Omnis.
  • ninja 15 February 2016 (Update):
    • The loot beam value has been changed from 50,000 to 50,001 coins for Miner's journal #1.
  • ninja 14 December 2015 (Update):
    • Added a lootbeam value of 50,000 coins to the following:
      • Miner's journals (#1 to #5) and The diary of Jebediah Omnis.
  • patch 23 November 2015 (Update):
    • The destroy messages of the miners’ journals and Jebediah Omni's diary have been updated to mention the need to read them first.
