It all Starts With Your Backstory
At the start of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, you not only pick your character class and customize its appearance, but you also get to choose a dramatic backstory. Were you raised by Elves or perhaps are you the village idiot?
Your backstory acts as the starting point on how well your hero excels in each of the 6 attributes. After you have selected your backstory, you are free to spend your first 10 hero points.
Having 10 Hero Points in an attribute means that it doesn’t have a positive or negative impact on your character. So if you have less than 10 points your character will be lacking in that department. This means that for example, your magic spell takes longer to recharge.
So your lore will define the strengths and weaknesses of your starting stats. Your choice could give you a jump start in the direction you are aiming for. Choose your origin story wisely Fatemaker!
