Miner's journal 4 detail.png

Miner's journal #4 is a journal obtained from killing Ripper Demons. This journal is only obtainable after miner's journal 3 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 800 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 4.

Raktuber 10

Oh gods, help me. I woke up this morning to find something crawling over my arm. It was like a long strip of diseased flesh scuttling around on thousands of tiny insect like legs. I think it was trying to dig into my arm, to burrow itself into my skin. I ripped it off quickly and found my arm covered in tiny red marks.

I don't know where the thing escaped to. When I looked for it, it had already gone. What in Saradomin's name is this thing?

Raktuber 11

There's something wrong with my arm, the one that thing was eating, my hand is constantly spasming trying to clench itself into a fist. There's a weird rash forming across the arm as well, like a long worm wrapping itself around my arm. I can feel something beneath the skin on my knuckles, something solid and smooth.

What's happening to me?

Raktuber 12

It's so funny now.

I can't stop laughing.

My hand has started to fuse into a useless little ball and the skin on my arm is starting to come away in one long, sinewy strip, like a bandage.

Thousands of voices keep whispering in my head. Horrible voices that want to murder, maim and slaughter. Each word uttered fills me with a sense of anger and hatred of everything around me. Of the walls and their terrible solidness, of the torches and their despicable fire. But most of all I hate every living thing.

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 journals #4.
  • patch 11 January 2016 (Update):
    • There is no longer a typo in Miner's Journal #4.
  • 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.
