The recent discovery of a “kumas island”—with what appear to be gigantic toyboxes often filled with massive diamonds—has sparked a flurry of competing expeditions full of adventurers with big dreams of striking it rich. Unfortunately, this island is not what it seems. What appears to be a giant playroom for kumases may in fact be a kind of madhouse. Those who venture there report severe hallucinations in which they believe they or their comrades are kumas infants. Worse still, the “diamonds” they bring back have so far all proven to be worthless rock candy.
Kumasylum pits up to 10 players versus a group of up to 3 players, the latter of whom play a kumas “nanny” and two kumas babies—and the sides are chosen at random. Players receive a quest to enter the Kumasylum battleground at levels 31, 41, and 51, and level 60 players receive a daily quest to participate.
Kumasylum is available to players level 30 and above. When you enter the battleground, your skills will scale to the level 60 versions, and all your gear will be standardized with the same number of crystal slots as the gear you were wearing when you entered. Players between level 30 and 59 can earn XP by completing quests for Kumasylum.
