Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Secondary Class: How to Unlock & How it Works

Double double.

Remember Borderlands? The series is returning under a Dungeons & Dragons-inspired spin-off called Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, combining orcs and magical abilities with the usual weapon mayhem folks know and love. This guide focuses on how to unlock the Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands secondary class for your character and how the feature works.

If you’re in need of more help, we have guides covering crossplay, how to change your appearance and banner, where to find the Shrine of Zoomios and Shrine of Mool Ah pieces, how to increase your backpack and ammo capacity, and a list of tips.

How to Unlock the Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands Secondary Class

In order to unlock the secondary class for your character in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, you need to progress through the main story up to the end of Emotion of the Ocean.

The list of main quests up to this point is as follows:

  • Bunkers & Badasses
  • A Hard Day’s Knight
  • Thy Bard, With A Vengeance
  • Emotion of the Ocean

As for Emotion of the Ocean, it’s a short quest focused mostly on story-building, so it shouldn’t take too long. That being said, definitely pay attention to it, as it’s… quite the spectacle.

Once that’s done, a message on the screen will notify you that you can now select your secondary class.

How the Secondary Class Works in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands

The Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands secondary class mechanic is super useful, as it allows you to pick any of the other five classes available in the game. This means you’re going to be rocking not one, but two skill trees at the same time. In addition, you now have a total of four Action Skills to choose from, as opposed to just two (although the second Action Skill requires a specific level), and carry the benefit of your secondary class’ Feat as well.

To activate the mechanic, head over to your Skills tab to find a separate skill tree space waiting for you. Go ahead and choose any of the other five classes and, once done, you’ll be all set. You also obtain a couple of Skill and Hero points, so you can purchase a few abilities from the get-go. But from that point on, it’s up to you how you want to shape your character.

Keep in mind that your Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands secondary class isn’t permanent, and you can change it again at a later moment in the main story. That being said, make sure to choose a bit carefully at first just so you’re not stuck with a class you probably didn’t want.

Meanwhile, the upside is pretty much immediate. As an example, I’m using the Spore Warden as a primary class and went for Graverborn as my secondary class. This means I now have two companions with me at all times, and I was able to spend some points in the Faithfull Thralls and Mortal Vessel skills from the get-go.

It’s an interesting opportunity to mix and match and see what you can come up with. Just remember: Weapons are still the heart of the experience! Don’t worry about your character no longer being viable just because you didn’t carefully study every skill to come up with the best outcome.
