The Season Pass provides 4 Mirrors of Mystery,1 new playable class, and exclusive cosmetic items. Now that all the DLCs have been released, let’s look at the overall package and if it’s worth your hard-earned money.
Exclusive Cosmetic Items
Let’s tick this one off at the beginning. Cosmetics are nice if you are really into them, however, I’m not one of those people. If Gearbox Software released the game with cool characters I would have been fine. I think your purchase decision shouldn’t depend on a few extra items but I see the FOMO here.
Gearbox Software did a lot of cosmetic items so if you like to dive into the character creator these DLCs will offer you plenty of items to work with.
Mirrors of Mystery
The DLC hub town, Dreamveil Overlook, looks great and is covered with mystery. It has all your essentials to jump into each of the DLC mirrors. Each of the DLCs is represented by a Mirror of Mystery. Jumping into one of them will trigger a stylized cinematic.
Each DLC contains 5 areas and 1 boss arena. The content looks great, there are really beautiful designed locations in these DLCs, but some objectives aren’t all that interesting making the area feel lackluster. This makes the content feel cheap and that’s not the case.
I think the main reason why the Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands PLCs get so much pushback is its price point. You are paying $10 and basically get 6 small areas, while with previous Borderlands titles you would get a whole 6-hour story campaign.
You can run these TTWL DLCs in under 10 minutes. If these post-launch content drops were like $5 a piece, I think it would have lowered the communities expectations. Hardcore players would have seen them as nice snackable content when they are waiting on the big content release.
Gearbox Software and 2K Games probably want to justify the price as the content is designed as highly replayable and that is something you will need to do in order to obtain all the new items that come with each DLC. However, the amount of stuff you can actually do isn’t there.
The Mirrors of Mystery are designed to introduce more players into the end game content, however, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands’ end game content is all about Chaos Chambers and the first two PLCs definitely feel like more Chaos Chambers. A change of pace would have been a warm welcome.
If you really like running Chaos Chambers, these DLCs do offer more variety to that. The new locations look great and provide a nice change of scenery.
New Playable Class
The new action skills look cool and allow you to do fun things. On top of that, the new Skill Tree offers great build diversity as it synergizes well with other classes.
I was excited about the new class, however, I quickly found myself going back to the Deadshot build I have been playing for a while as I really like that play style.
New Voice and Background
The fourth DLC, Shattering Spectreglass, also added a new grim character voice. If you are going for a whole new character, a new voice can spice up the content as there is new dialogue next to your new gameplay experience.
While you can simply multiclass the new Blightcaller with your existing character. There are also new background stories. These are a fun addition but not a make-or-break deal. The default Village idiot kinda stays the best background story although the new Nerfed by Bunker Master is also great.
These backgrounds kinda determine your max stats instead of your starting stats as you can negate the negative stats with the free Hero Points you get at the start.
The new voice and the new backgrounds are nice to have things but not something that would sell me on the Season Pass.
Should You Buy Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands’ Season Pass
If you are really into Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands and the Chaos Chambers, this article is probably not going to stop you. The overall value of the season pass is to keep you busy and entertain you in that way. If you don’t have any issues with that then go wild.
Would you happen to have limited funds, I would wait until the content goes on sale. Because comparing it to other content we received in the past. There isn’t a lot there.
If you are looking to pick up the Season Pass you can get it on Console, Steam, or EPIC using these links. If you purchase the content using these links, you also support me and the website. I would really appreciate it if you do that as it helps grow the site.
Thanks, and Enjoy!
