Best Backgrounds in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands

You can choose a lot of different character backgrounds in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Each origin story provides you with different stats that determine your character’s capabilities.

Each background story plays into a specific play style. Something for your character to excel in but also balancing it by adding weakness.

Because you can spend 10 Hero Points after you have chosen your backstory, you can negate that weakness at the start. Therefore, you should look at the endgame build and focus on the stat you want to boost. Because you are raising that hero stat’s maximum level.

The overall best character background is Village Idiot because it increases your character’s damage.

Another good choice would be Nerfed by the Bunkermaster as it doesn’t really have a weakness. The only thing it has going against you is a reduced Dexterity but since that stat doesn’t really have an impact it doesn’t hurt as much. Because Dexterity is calculated over the 5% Crit Chance instead of directly increasing the number.

Hero Point Attributes

Each Hero Point Attributes affects a specific stat on your character, they are crucial to creating the ultimate character build, you can even increase certain stats even more by leveling up your Myth Rank.
