Our Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Graveborn build takes advantage of the versatility of the class, along with its powerful companion which can be combined with the Spore Wardens to great effect. Tiny Tina's Wonderlands gives you heaps of class options, while also accommodating a multiclassing feature that lets you combine archetypes together for unique builds. So, if you want the rundown on how to replicate our Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Graveborn build, we've got you covered.

After creating the look of your character you will need a relevant background, which will give you a small boost to some stats. We recommend the Rogue Alchemist for our Graveborn build, as it will give you a boost of eight Wisdom, which lets you deal increased status damage. All backgrounds come with a downside though, as you will lose five Constitution and two Dexterity, lowering your overall HP and crit chance by a small amount. 

For the choice of your Hero stats, you'll want an equal focus on your Intelligence, Wisdom, and Attunement skills throughout the game, which will give you a massive cooldown reduction to spells and skills alike, while increasing your status damage which is key for your companions and certain skills.

For your Graveborn action skill, we recommend taking Dire Sacrifice, which lets you sacrifice 40% of your health to deal dark magic damage and apply the same status to all nearby enemies, with the damage scaling based on your max HP. 

For the first tier of the Graveborn skill tree, you'll want to max out everything available, taking a total of 13 points. Mortal Vessel will increase your max HP per point, along with dark magic efficiency, while Essence Drain is a kill skill that increases your spell cooldown rate to a total of 25%. The last one in this tier is Faithful Thralls, which gives you increased damage for every companion, totalling 9%. This also increases the respawn rate of your companions. 

In tier two, your focus will be on Harvest, which is a kill skill that lets your companions deal bonus dark magic damage. It's worth noting this effect also stacks up to 9% total, lasting for 12 seconds. While you're here, putting a single point into Sanguine Sacrament is worth it for the 5% health regeneration from every spell you use, which will help massively throughout the game. 

In the third tier, you will want to ignore all skills except Dark Hydra, which really helps to start tying the build together in terms of your companions coming online. Dark Hydra is a kill skill that gives you a chance to summon a companion which deals dark magic damage. At max, this skill gives you a 60% chance per kill at summoning a Dark Hydra, with a max of three that can be summoned, lasting ten seconds each. 


In the fourth tier, you'll want to max out both the available skills. First is Ascension; this is another kill skill that increases your max HP and spell damage. This also stacks up to ten times, making for a potential 20% increase to both of your stats. There is also the one point skill called Punishment, which gives your Demi-Lich companion a 20% chance to recast its Hellish Blast ability. 

The fifth tier of the Graveborn tree has a skill called Lord of Edges. This increases your damage output while reducing the damage you take, increasing in scale as you lose more health. You'll also want to grab the capstone skill of this class, which is called Morhaim's Blessing. This will let you activate all of your kill skills whenever you cast a spell, which is extremely powerful due to the mass amount of damage you'll be able to follow up with.  

Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Graveborn Build: Multiclassing

Once you gain access to the multiclassing feature after finishing the Emotion of the Ocean mission found later in the game, you'll want to select the Spore Warden as your second class. This will give you access to a bunch of powerful companion abilities, and the farting mushroom. 

In tier one, max out both Bounty of the Hunt and Kindred Heart. The first is a kill skill which increases the cooldown rate of action skills, while the second increases your companion's health and damage massively. In the second tier, just focus on maxing the Affinity skill, which gives you a flat ability damage increase with each point. 

You can skip over the third tier before arriving at tier four for the Thrill of the Hunt. This skill gives your companions increased damage whenever you make a critical hit with your guns, while also stacking up to ten times, for big damage boost potential. In total, your companions should be able to take on most enemies themselves while you hang back and support thanks to the skills in this build.

That's all for our walkthrough of how to create a Tiny Tina's Wonderlands Graveborn build that deals insane damage with companions and abilities.
