In Borderlands, we had shields that literally meant shields. Wards are Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands’ version of shields. Wards protect your character’s health from incoming damage; there are multiple rarity tiers, shield components, and bonuses to choose from.
Wonderlands has three manufacturers of Wards; Ashen, Pangoblin and Hyperius. Here is a brief of what they offer:
- Ashen: Ashen Wards recharge quickly and generally have a low shielding capacity.
- Pangoblin: High Capacity but slower recharge rate.
- Hyperius: Have multiple effects that offer help in combat.
Many of you might wonder why I am not getting any legendaries in-game. I’ve played this game for 30-40 hours now, it turns out you won’t get any good drops until you’ve reached a certain level. For me, legendaries started dropping when I reached level 25. One more thing to remember is that even purple rarity wards (epic) are great in this game.
Update: Coiled Captors DLC Wards have been added to the table.

Stats to look out for:

Which Ward Should I Choose?
Wonderlands is just a few days old, so no one will be able to tell you which ward you should be choosing. Not many have even reached level 40 yet. So we might need some time to get builds out.
One thing you can do is read the texts written in the ward’s description and figure out if it synergizes well with the fatemaker you are using. You can read our guide on the best multiclasses.
The AAA titles’ launch hasn’t been great so far. There are issues like bad performance and crashing now and then. Gearbox doesn’t even have an official forum for the game setup yet, I don’t know what that means, but the game launch was undoubtedly rushed. Wonderlands doesn’t run well even on 3080 PCs. You can read our article on fixing performance issues to rectify this.
Keep in mind that this article is a work in progress, and data can change every day.
