A journal is an item that acts as a passive bonus to your activities in Albion. You can acquire empty journals from laborers or you can buy them from other players.

Three different types of journals exist:

  • Gathering Journals
  • Crafting Journals
  • Mercenary Journals

Journals can be filled, if you have them in your inventory while doing certain, journal specific activities. Gathering journals fill up while you gather resources, crafting journals fill up while you craft items and mercenary journals fill up while you gain pve fame from slaying monsters.

Gathering Journals

Gathering journals fill up, if you gather its resources that equal or up to two tiers higher. So a Tier 3 ore gathering journal can be filled gathering tier 3, tier 4 and tier 5 ore.

Gathering Journals follow a specific naming scheme that is based on the name of the laborer:

  • hide gathering journals are called Gamekeeper
  • ore gathering journals are called Prospector
  • fiber gathering journals are called Cropper
  • wood gathering journals are called Lumberjack
  • stone gathering journals are called Stonecutter
  • fishing journals are called Fisherman

Different tiers of gathering journals require different amounts of fame to be filled. To fill journals only the base fame (excluding the premium bonus) is counted towards filling a journal.

Fame required to fill gathering journals:

Tier / Fame 2 / 300 3 / 600 4 / 1200 5 / 2400 6 / 4800 7 / 9600 8 / 19200

As a reference, here is is the fame per resource node per tier:

Tier / Amount gathered per swing / fame per swing / fame per resource 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

If you compare the loot table of the journals (for reference below) this compares to XY% bonus resources if you carry a journal in your inventory while gathering resources. Because you can fill journals with different tier resources the comparison is hard to make if you want to break it down to silver / hour, but easy to express in terms of additional gathering bonus %.

Crafting Journals

Crafting journals fill up, if you craft its tier and type of item. A Tier 3 tinker journal would fill up if you craft tier 3 items at a toolmaker. A T6 blacksmith journal would fill up if you craft T6 items at a Warriors Forge

Crafting Journals follow a specific naming scheme that is based on the name of the laborer:

  • Toolmaker crafting journals are called Tinker
  • Warrior Forge crafting journals are called Blacksmith
  • Mage Tower crafting journals are called Imbuer
  • Hunter Lodge crafting journals are called Fletcher

Different tiers of crafting journals require different amounts of fame to be filled. To fill journals only the base fame (excluding the premium bonus) is counted towards filling a journal.

Fame required to fill crafting journals:

Tier / Fame 2 / 300 3 / 600 4 / 1200 5 / 2400 6 / 4800 7 / 9600 8 / 19200

If you look at the returns of the journals and try to compare that to a fixed % resource return it is hard to do, because the different enchantment levels of armor and weapons give very different amounts of fame. However a general rule of thumb is that the lower the enchantment level (.0 / .1) the higher the resource % resource
