Strisath's journal detail.png

Strisath's journal is a journal written by Strisath the Dragonkin, obtainable as a rare drop from adamant dragons in the Dragonkin Lair after Hero's Welcome. It only drops after Sakirth's journal has been obtained. The journal details Strisath's thoughts on the Mirror, as he speculates as to whether or not it is working correctly. Obtaining and reading this journal is a requirement for the master quest cape.

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

Transcript[edit | edit source]

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

I am beginning to have my doubts as to Sakirth's reliability. Since striking down the Lucien User, he has taken on what appears (from my limited inquiries) to be that creature's overwhelming arrogance. This may be nothing, as I have not had the wit to ask him many questions in my cursed state. He may always have been abrasive, but only now can it register with me.

In any case I feel that we need to discard the Mirror and dispose of the Dactyl test-subject immediately. Not only is Tarshak and Sakirth's posturing setting my teeth on edge, but it cannot be long before the effects of the Mirror are felt. Unlike the others, I took some time to examine the island we found the False User upon and noted the Mirror had been performing its function randomly. Could this be a side-effect of drawing power from a False User? Could the Mirror be broken? Can such an item be broken?

The mirror has been left untended since the beginning of this world. What need did the Elder Gods have of such a device once they had all the rocks, seas and air that they wanted? Could it be that the item was disposable in nature and never intended to work after this initial phase, like throwing away a brush once it is clogged with paint.

If such a thing is possible, does this mean the other items can be broken or ceases to function if they fulfil the task to which they are allotted? If so, can the Stone be broken thus? I will need to swallow my pride and consult with some learned Dactyl on this. Disposing of Tarshak in such a way that his death cannot tie back to me is a must in that case.

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 23 October 2017 (Update):
    • Adamant dragon journals will now always show a lootbeam.
  • patch 10 July 2017 (Update):
    • An issue that was preventing some players from obtaining Strisath's journal has been fixed.
  • 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 Adamant dragons are the Dragonkin journals but not Forcae's journal.
  • ninja 15 February 2016 (Update):
    • The loot beam value has been changed from 50,000 to 50,001 coins for Strisath's journal.
  • ninja 14 December 2015 (Update):
    • Added a lootbeam value of 50,000 coins to the following:
      • Kalibath's journal, Phalaks's experiment log, Sakirth's journal & Strisath's journal.
