Once you’ve reached endgame, the next thing you’ll want to do in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is to get your hands on some Chaotic and Volatile gear. Similar to Borderlands 3’s Mayhem gear, you can only obtain these items after finishing the game’s main story.
However, it’s not just a simple case of ramping up the difficulty in order to get one. Without further ado, here’s how you can obtain powerful Chaotic and Volatile gear.
How to Get Chaotic & Volatile Gear in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
Before anything else, let’s have a short overview of what Chaotic & Volatile gear are.
These items are essentially more powerful gears than the standard pieces of gear. Chaotic items, in particular, are 20% more powerful than the standard gear while Volatile items are 40% more powerful. This is why most players want to get their hands on one of these items due to the major increases they provide.
Now, to farm these items, you’ll have to get to the Chaos Chambers which is basically the game’s endgame dungeon. To do this, you’ll want to visit the Chaos Chamber and talk to the Dragon Lord. He will be the one to provide you with several options as to which Chaos Chamber run you want to tackle.
You can choose from either a Normal run, an Extended run, a Chaos Trial, and the Featured Run. The higher your Chaos level, the better loots you can get. You can see the maximum Chaos level you have in the menu, alongside the bonuses you get in each level as well as the stats of the enemies you’ll come across.
You’ll want to keep in mind that the higher Chaos level you’re running, the harder it gets. On the other hand, it will grant you better rewards as well as a chance for obtaining both Chaotic and Volatile items. However, do take note that the drop chance for Volatile items only unlocks at Chaos level 20 and will remain at 0% percent on lower levels.
If it’s your first time running Chaos Chambers, the very first thing you should do is to level up your Chaos level. To do this, you’ll have to talk to the Dragon Lord and run a Chaos Trial. Every time you successfully clear a trial, your Chaos Level will increase by one until you get to the maximum level which is level 20.
To farm Chaotic gear, you just have to run Chaos Chambers on as high Chaos level as you possibly can. It maxes out at level 20 with a 28.17% drop chance. Meanwhile, if you want to farm Volatile gear, you’ll have to run Chaos Chambers at level 20 until you finally get one.
Since the drop late is too low, only at 1.41%, getting a Volatile gear to drop will rely on your RNG. Also, you want to run a build that’s capable of clearing Chaos Level 20 runs to efficiently farm as much Volatile gear as possible.
Total War Three Kingdoms: Court Guide
Going to war and managing your troops in the heat of battle has always been the core gameplay of Total War, either that or deliberately heading straight into battle outgunned or outnumbered in order to test the mettle of your troops. But with the Three Kingdoms things can get mighty confusing when you’re not out fighting. You’d be surprised how something as simple as choosing who to put on councils can take up your time when you’re not quite sure of your decisions. That will all go away as we show you the way of heaven’s will in this guide and lead your kingdom to prosperity!
Court Guide | Total War Three Kingdoms
Now the court is made up of your faction leaders, heirs, and your administrators. You manage your dynasty here as you unlock more positions when you progress. Let’s go further into detail below and see how you can manage your people better.
While you’re in the in-game map click on the Court button or press 2 to bring up the rest of your family tree. What you can do here first is to hover over everyone’s portraits to see the positive and negative benefits they can offer if they’re to be assigned to a certain position.
Next thing that you should be on the lookout for is the character’s Background. You can find this by hovering over the general’s name, there’s plenty of generals each with their own unique background so be careful who you choose! For this example, Liu Bei is a Virtuous Idealist. That helps you with public order and upkeep but gives you 25% less income due to their poor background.
Another interesting thing to keep in mind are the basic Traits. You will have to keep a close eye on this as it influences character relations throughout the campaign. Same with the Background, there are numerous Traits in the game and your character can earn more as you progress with them.
Of course besides the individual Traits and Backgrounds you also would want to know more about navigating the Court itself. Each individual position in the court will have its own explanation and allows you to see the rank required in order to unlock it.
You can choose good old fashioned nepotism and assign a post to a family member or a general who’s done actual work with their own hands. Each character will offer various bonuses depending on the position they’re assigned to.
Remember – not all your characters need to be out in the field as some of them are more proficient with administrative affairs. The pen is mightier than the sword, and all of that.
Now that you’ve assigned a post to the members of your Court the next thing you need to do is to make sure everyone is satisfied. You wouldn’t want someone in a position of power to complain and suddenly decide it would be in their best interest to rebel! That gets in the way of prosperity and no one wants that.
In order to view a character’s Satisfaction go and hover over their character panel or check the characters list on your campaign screen. If you choose the character panel check to the right of their age in order to see their opinion about you.
Some of the things you can do to make sure they don’t look elsewhere is to make sure that the post you assigned to them is compatible with their class. For example if your character’s class is Sentinel then you would want to make that character into an Administrator.
Lastly, it’s recommended that you assign a post that complements their level. Give them a post that’s too out of reach for them and their satisfaction will suffer just as much. Now that’s good work ethic!
And that is how you manage internal affairs in Total War: Three Kingdoms. Now that you know the intricacies of the court you can be your very own Sun Tzu and lead by example!
