One aspect of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands’ balancing that is not quite right has to do with Dark Magic. In particular, fans found that Dark Magic weapons were not dealing as much damage as other elemental types, which is a major issue considering the fact that the game features a class that is built almost entirely around Dark Magic. Fortunately, fans of the Graveborn are in luck, as the scaling has been “improved to match other elemental weapons” - ensuring that fans can still thrive with a Dark Magic build.
Two of the four notes focus on Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands’ Legendary spells. Fortunately, neither change will see them nerfed, meaning that gamers can continue to deal massive damage with the game’s magic. The first change will see spell colors changed to match the elemental damage type associated with them, allowing players that are inspecting a spell to instantly see what kind of damage it will do. Another nice quality of life change will allow Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands players to see an icon that matches the casting style of their spells, giving them a quick way to tell what animation will play when casting the spell without taking the time to test it out.
However, while the Dark Magic changes are great for Graveborn players and the spell changes will make things a bit easier to read, it is the final change that will have the biggest impact. The Chaos Bunnies and Chests of the Chaos Chamber will now provide loot exclusive to the Chaos Chambers. This is a huge adjustment, as players should now be getting the exclusive items a lot more than they were previously.
With the Chaos Chamber designed to give players more unique loot, this is a smart change that should allow the mode to better fulfill its purpose. Chests and Chaos Bunnies will be more exciting to open than ever before, and players will have more to consider when they are choosing which portal to take or how many Crystals to save for the final room. All these changes are live right now, and with Gearbox making the adjustments so quickly, fans have good reason to be optimistic about the game’s future.
As mentioned by Gearbox in the blog post about this Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands update, these changes were delivered via a hotfix, meaning that no patch has to be downloaded. While major patches will come, all players need to do to access these updates is relaunch the game.
Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
