Hero Points in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands lets you specialize your character in certain aspects. It’s like a character sheet where you spent your points on very classic Dungeons & Dragons attributes. These Hero Stats influence your damage abilities and cooldowns.

Once your class and starting look are locked in, you can further tailor your build by tinkering with your starting stats.

You will have 10 hero points on each attribute as a baseline which means that it doesn’t have a positive or negative impact on your character. So if you have less than 10 points, your character will be lacking in that department. This means that for example, your magic spell takes longer to recharge.
