Miner's journal 2 detail.png

Miner's journal #2 is a journal obtained from killing Ripper Demons. This journal is only obtainable after miner's journal 1 has been received and read. 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 master quest cape.

This journal has a 1/100 chance of dropping. After 400 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 2.

We can't leave. It's like the cavern exit was never there. There's just stone.

It's not a cave in though. There's no debris, no fallen rocks, there was no sudden rockslide. It's just GONE.

The guys are talking about ghosts and dark magic. Omnis appears unfazed, he just tells us to keep digging, like it's business as usual. I do not trust him.

Saradomin protect us, there's something here. Archy has gone missing. We heard his scream, ear-splittingly loud and then suddenly muffled. But there's no sign of him nor a struggle, or where he could be. Just the same featureless walls and the horrible shadows cast by torchlight.

I keep thinking I see something out of the corner of my eye. Something slithering along the floor. It's like someone is dragging bandages through the dirt, but there's no one pulling them.

I've got to get out of here.

Omnis has vanished as well. No scream this time, he's just gone. I can't say I'm choked up by that one, the guy was creepy. In the last few days he's taken to muttering in a strange language in the corner. I swear he said the word ripper periodically, but it's probably just my mind playing tricks.

It reminds me of the demons that my father used to tell me about. The ripper demon that Saint Elspeth defeated with music.

I wish I wasn't tone deaf.

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!
  • patch 6 July 2020 (Update):
    • Fixed a typo in Miner's Journal 2.
  • 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 journals #2.
  • 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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The prospector named "Mr. Omnis" is a reference to the RuneLabs suggester of the Ripper Demons.
  • The miner named "Archy" is a reference to the player who suggested Wyverns.
