Strange classes in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands include “Stabbomancer” and “Brr-Zerker”

Upcoming Borderlands spin-off Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is heavily influenced by tabletop RPGs such as Dungeons and Dragons, but doesn’t use Forgotten Realms’ wholesale ideas. There are no thief or warrior classes here. Instead, the developer Gearbox created its own take with the Stabbomancer and Brr-Zerker classes.

These two classes were first revealed by Wonderlands’ multi-class system. This allows you to combine 6 unique character skill trees to create your ideal character. Stabbomancer is a stealth (or as stealth as Borderlands) class that looks inspired by D & D Rogues. Focusing on these critical hits, the assassin summons a magical spinning ghost blade that can be thrown like a deadly frisbee, disappears in the shadows and repositions using a magic cloak, You can create a perfect back stub with increased damage.

Brr-Zerkers, on the other hand, is a kind of magical barbarian class that combines blockbuster damage and frost magic. Their ferrule surge ability allows them to jump forward with a giant ice ax, causing cold shock waves, and dreadwind skills spin them at high speeds, freezing and crushing enemies.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands characters have access to magic using a spellcasting system built around a short cooldown. Examples provided by Gearbox include burning enemies, throwing mini tornadoes, protective spells, and buffs that reduce cooldowns. Like BioShock plasmids and tonics, guns are used in the right hand and spells are used in the left hand. In addition, magic fits into the “combat effector” of guns, spells, and melee weapons, so all characters have access to their own melee weapons at any time.

To further increase desktop influence, Wonderlands campaigns use overworld maps to move characters between key locations. Explored through a third-person overhead camera, it is designed to evoke the sensation of moving a miniature on a tabletop RPG game board. You can also explore the Overworld Map to find shortcuts and optional locations such as Tangledrift and Sundang Oasis. Each has a multi-part quest line, and Gearbox wants to act as a Wonderlands analog for tabletop RPG one-shot and standalone modules.

Core Quests include Bat Stallion, a magical diamond unicorn that oversees Wonderland from the capital Brighthof. Your adventure will face the skeletons resurrected by Dragon Road to bring about destruction.

Details of Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands will be released in the coming months, and the game itself will be released on March 25, 2022 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and PC via the Epic Games Store. The following are available in different editions: For more information, check out the details of weapons, loot, magic, and enemies.
