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 a 33% chance to have only 7 monsters per zone. The minimum number of monsters required to kill to complete a zone is 2.
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 formula:
number of monster reduction = -8×(1-e-.025n)×Effect of Borb
