The prized Porguses and Poppy have once again been captured by the Kumukis. Same as before, you will need to sneak your way through the cave before the Proguses become award-winning entrées! Looking to put a stop to this, the Porguses have asked a man named Ember to rid of the Kumukis forever, but he needs your help in exchange for wonderful prizes.
- How To Participate -
In the Capital Cities you’ll find Gretel the Mischievous looking for the assistance of any level 46+ Daeva willing to help. She has a carriage that will send you to the Kumuki Cave where Hansel the Troublemaker is waiting to tell you how you can help.
Once inside, Hansel will inform you that the Porguses are being held in cages at the end of the cave, and you only have 15 minutes before it’s dinner time! Opening the gate will transform you into a Shabby Kumuki which also grants two special abilities. You can also grab a Shabby Kumuki Transformation Scroll from the Supplies Box if you need it.
Causes the target to be feared and disappear.
Causes a group of Kumukis to be temporarily paralyzed.
You’ll need to use these abilities to progress through the cave in a stealthy manner avoiding the vision the Kumukis have. Also available are objects you can use to blend in so you won’t be detected. If you’re careless and are detected too many times, the butcher will be alerted and kill the Porguses before you get there.
As you make your way through the cave, you’ll need to keep an eye out for four Key Chests, which contain the keys required to save the Porguses. Also hidden in the cave is a Suspicious Box which has the key to open the Kumuki Crate at the end.
Looking for a bit of experience while saving the Porguses? Three Nutritious Ginseng can be found in the cave, killing them will grant EXP so be sure to end their fleshy rooted lives if you have time! Ember also has a quest for those that wish to defeat the Nutritious Ginseng, so be sure to pick that up before heading inside. You can also choose to let the helpless Porguses die and kill the Kumukis for additional EXP.
For each Porgus you save you’ll earn one Poppy’s Gift Bundle (but only if you talk to them after opening the cage door), and an additional one if you open the Kumuki Crate. Each Poppy’s Gift Bundle will yield a random amount of Poppy’s Letters (among other items), which Ember is eagerly seeking as they contain Poppy’s plan to defeat the Kumukis. You can exchange these sought-after letters, Spinel Medals, and (sometimes) AP, with Ember for various prizes.
On the store you’ll be able to purchase Bonus Entry Scrolls to go as many times as you wish!

Ember, along with Hansel and Gretel, only have three weeks before they need to return home, so be sure to help the Porguses while there’s still time. Kumuki’s Daring Rescue runs from August 30 to September 20.
