Miner's journal 3 detail.png

Miner's journal #3 is a journal obtained from killing Ripper Demons. This journal is only obtainable after miner's journal 2 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 the master quest cape.

This journal has a 1/100 chance of dropping. After 600 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 3.

Raktuber 2

I saw Archy again but only out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look and he was gone, like he'd just vanished into the shadows. He looked strange, like he was wrapped in bandages. Horrible, filthy bandages caked in blood. They were billowing around him like they were caught in a breeze, but there's no wind in here, no airflow.

There was something wrong with his hands. I swear they glinted in the torchlight, long and metallic. What's going on here?

Raktuber 5

Saradomin save us, I saw Archy properly this time. The bandages that wrapped around him, they aren't bandages. I don't know what they are, but they were crawling over him, growing over him like some sort of horrible second skin. He was screaming the whole time, but one of them was growing over his throat, silencing him.

His hands were claws, huge metallic claws.

I think he was trying to call us to help, but the horrible flesh, that crawled all over him, dragged him back into the shadows. Controlling him like some nightmare puppeteer.

Raktuber 6

Now Adelunth has gone as well.

Sometimes I think I hear him whimpering for help, begging and pleading from the shadows somewhere.

I want to go home.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. 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 journals #3.
  • 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 miners mentioned in this journal are references to two other RuneLabs winners. The name "Archy" is a reference to the player who suggested Wyverns, and "Adelunth" is a reference to the player who suggested Acheron mammoths.
