Understand the Elements of Combat

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands features a wide assortment of weapons and spells, many of which deal different flavors of elemental damage. Except for dark, each element is especially effective against a certain type of enemy health bar. There's quite a lot of depth to elemental damage in Tiny Tina's Wonderlands, but the basics are fairly easy to learn and remember:

  • Ice: Bonus Damage against Bones (White Health Bars), Inflicts Freeze Effect.
  • Fire: Bonus Damage against Flesh (Red Health Bars), Inflicts Burn over time.
  • Lightning: Bonus Damage against Wards (Blue Health Bars), Inflicts shock over time.
  • Poison: Bonus Damage against Armor (Yellow Health Bars), Inflicts poison over time.
  • Dark: All Dark Damage dealt steals life from foes to restore the Fatemaker's HP.

By keeping these interactions between damage types and health in mind, it becomes much easier for players to deal meaningful damage to foes that would normally be quite tanky and tricky to deal with.

Collect Lucky Dice

Lucky Dice are an incredibly valuable collectible in the Wonderlands, granting players a burst of extra loot along with a permanent increase to their loot luck. This means that finding more Lucky Dice will permanently increase the odds of getting rare item drops from every enemy in the game. Collecting every available Lucky Dice in Snoring Valley and Queen's Gate is an excellent start.

Farm Using Obelisks

Obelisks can be found in many areas of the game and supply the player with multiple waves of enemies, culminating in a boss, when activated. These event encounters drop absolutely tons of loot and are an excellent way to quickly amass gear, so players feeling dissatisfied with their current weapons should definitely seek these out. They can also be reset by reloading the area, making them an infinitely reusable source of loot.

The first and easiest of these to farm in the early game can be found in Queen's Gate.

Respec at the Quick Change Booth

After gaining access to Brighthoof and recovering the Sword of Souls, players are introduced to Izzy at Izzy's Fizzies. Her tavern serves as a hub for quest givers in the city, and also provides access to the Quick Change booth. The Quick Change booth allows players to open up the character creation menu and re-customize their character, though they cannot change their chosen starting class or background.

By holding Q while in the Quick Change Menu players can reset all of their spent skill points, allowing them to re-customize their build as they see fit. This is especially useful for players wishing to try out new builds, or who are finding their current build dissatisfying or underwhelming.

Boss Enemies Respawn

Much like the Obelisks mentioned earlier, any bosses encountered in the Wonderlands (differentiated from other enemies by their health bars filling the entire top of the screen while the Fatemaker is fighting them) will respawn whenever the area is reloaded, allowing players to reset them by fast traveling to any nearby fast travel point.

As many bosses have fast travel points located right outside their boss rooms, it is fairly straightforward to keep resetting a boss and farming it for additional loot. This requires players to have reached one of said bosses, naturally, but they often have improved odds of dropping various kinds of rare and legendary loot.

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands is Available Now for Playstation 4, Playstation 5, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
