The best way to bring in a new year is always with a POOL PARTY! Lucky for us, Princess' annual pool party always brings the fun, and she's kicking off 2019 by inviting brand new Tier 4 Objectives and one of her best new friends: Bruno the Unicorn!

Princess' Pool Party 4 introduces Bruno the Unicorn, and brings back Pilot Pam, Queen Siri, Bernard the Bartender, Princess Val the Mermaid, and Shenna the Centaur! The party officially ends on January 22, 2019 at 12:00PM PT, so be sure to unlock and gear up Bruno and the others before then!

Oh, and for anyone curious, The Exchange Student isn't available on the Hot Tub Tier 4 objective because she's a Lightning Drake, not a Flame Drake.

How do you activate an ability to increase Bruno's gold?

Linda, abilities are things like "Click-o-Rama" and "Magnify" on that strip right above the crusader benches.

It will take a long long long run to get Bruno's Achievement.
Ideal will be to both or either use Crusaders that have a shorter CD on their abilities and have T4 Talent "Instant Satisfaction" (and being lucky with it).

Note that:
1) abilities used before buying Bruno's Upgrade do not count
2) abilities used when Bruno is NOT in the Formation do not count
3) his Horn makes Bruno a Crusader you want in your Formation (so n.2 will not be a problem)

Got a question...
how do Bruno's Horn and Trixie's Trick or Threat Upgrade work together?
Is it additive or overlapsing so that only the best % works?

not Raymond
i thought it was cumulative for the achievement across runs but looks like 10k in one long long long long long long lllllloooooooonnnnnnggggg run as even though i just put the last abilitiy on it this run the achievement has not increased at all for any of the dozens of magnify's and other things clicked this run so far.

Also note that Sashimi in formation makes a difference (not sure how huge, as i haven't tried figuring out the math, but at least significant). Without her, Bruno's tooltip says it adds 1% per ability-cast, but with her in formation (and her fish Legendary so that Main Attraction is doing 30%), Bruno's tooltip shows each ability-cast adding 1.3%).

@ Mephistophele: Bruno and Trixie's quest drop bonuses stack multiplicatively.

Mephistophele, if you have Trixie's golden legendary gourd, her "Variety Pack" ability active, and Bruno's legendary horn, the calculation would be...

1 + (40% * 1.5) + 30%, or in other words...

1 * 1.6 * 1.3 = 2.08. So with optimal currently-available gear, they about double drop rates.

Azaryah, Sashimi makes a huge difference because Bruno's ability is multiplicative. Ergo, it stacks compoundingly. The effect doesn't just get a 30% boost from wherever it would have otherwise been at any given point, the lead the buffed version has increases with every stack. The difference is 1(1.013^x) - 1(1.01^x), where x = the number of times the ability has been stacked. It isn't as accurate, but the more simple way to think of it is that the difference is (1.003^x)-1. More an estimation, but a lot faster to calculate.
