Tiny Tina's Wonderlands: Hero Stats Explained

Hero Stats are an important part of building a powerful character in Tiny Tina's Wonderlands. Find out what they do right here.

Hero Stats in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands modify stats you’re familiar with if you've played the previous Borderlands games. From Critical Damage and Chance to Status Damage and cooldowns, which you max out and which you ignore depends on your build and playstyle.

This guide to Tiny Tina's Wonderlands will go over the six Hero Stats, what they affect, and briefly discuss the best reasons to increase them.

What Hero Stats Do in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands

The names of Hero Stats should be familiar to any RPG player, but their functions vary from the genres they're taken from. As you might expect, Hero Stats in Tiny Tina's Wonderlands primarily focus on improving your damage.

Strength Hero Stat

Strength modifies Critical Damage. A Critical Hit means double damage by default, and increasing Strength increases that damage by a flat percentage.

30 Strength provides 25% increased Critical Damage, for instance. Every class benefits from having good Strength, but certain Stabbomancer and Spellshot builds gain quite a bit.

Dexterity Hero Stat

Dexterity modifies Critical Chance. Every time you hit an enemy with anything, be it melee, spell, or gun damage, there is a chance it scores a Critical Hit.

Higher Dexterity increases that chance by a flat percentage. Putting into this Hero Stat is a good choice for almost any class unless you have a way to guarantee Critical Hits.

Intelligence Hero Stat

Intelligence modifies Spell Cooldown Rate. Every spell in Wonderlands rolls with a cooldown, between 10-20 seconds in most cases.

Increasing Intelligence cuts that cooldown time by a flat percentage, which stacks with other cooldown abilities certain classes provide. Spellshot and other magic-focused classes benefit most from increasing this stat.

Wisdom Hero Stat

Wisdom modifies Status Damage. Elemental damage-over-time is one of the best ways to increase your overall damage output for little up-front cost.

Every Elemental weapon has a chance to apply its status effect on hit, and increasing your Wisdom increases the amount of DoT damage statuses do. It doesn’t change the length of the effect, however.

Constitution Hero Stat

Constitution modifies your maximum Health and Ward. More Constitution means a flat bonus to your Health and Ward values.

You’ll need at least a few points in this stat to survive some of the health-gated attacks that will one-shot you without a certain amount of Health and Ward. For that reason, it’s good to have a little bit invested in this Hero Stat.

Attunement Hero Stat

Attunement governs your Action Skill cooldown. Rather than having a Charisma stat, Wonderlands introduces Attunement, which directly modifies how fast your Action Skill comes off cooldown.

As many builds rely on Action Skill activation, you’ll want to have it up and ready to go as often as possible.

Those are the Hero Stats of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. You’ll need to spend some time respeccing your character to end up at the optimal setup for your build. Have a look at our Wonderlands guides hub for more.
