- "A darkness radiates from the monument, causing many things to become difficult to see. You catch a brief glimpse of movement nearby... Was that Abaddon? Upgrading this ancient will allow you to sneak past monsters when exploring."
Kumawakamaru reduces monsters required to kill per non-boss zone. The integer part of its effect shows the reduced monster per normal zone, while the decimal part is the chance to get one monster fewer.
For example: The effect of -2.33 means number of monsters per normal zone is 8 at most, with 33% chance to have only 7 monster per zone.
Kumawakamaru's summon cost is the player's current summon cost.
Kumawakamaru's cost per level is 2n, with n being equal to the next level.
All costs except the summon cost can be reduced by Chor'gorloth.
The monster reduction follows the equation:
-number of monster reduction = 8×(1-e-0.01n)
- Kumawakamaru is likely a reference to Hino Kumawaka, née Kumawaka-maru, who was most known for avenging his father by killing a lay monk while the monk was sleeping.
- Kumawakamaru effectively maxes out at level 3743.
