Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands: What Does the Blank Slate Do?

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands has a ton of legendary armors that you can obtain. However, one armor in particular has been a stuff of memes for the simple reason that it can offer basically nothing. This armor is called the Blank Slate, and if you happen to find one, you might be wondering what’s the point of this item in the first place.

Let’s find out.

What is Blank Slate in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands?

The Blank Slate can be obtained just like you would with other legendary armors. The confusing part is that when you finally find one, it has the red flavor text stating “Requires at least 1500 clicks” and another flavor text at the top that’s either “Corrupted” or “Krangled”.

Now, if it’s your first time getting one, you might be confused as to what those texts mean. Well, as mentioned, they’re basically flavor texts, but the “Requires at least 1500 clicks” part is quite confusing as it’s always available on every Blank Slate armor you come across.

Luckily, it doesn’t really require you to click at least 1500 times to unlock anything. It’s actually a reference to Path of Exile which is known for its punishing endgame grinding and crafting mechanics. Also, the flavor texts “Corrupted” and “Krangled” are both a reference to the same game.

That aside, the Blank Slate actually has a secret stat. Basically, whenever you come across a Blank Slate drop, it can roll with a random stat that will sometimes grant you an XP buff or an Ambivalence buff. It can also roll a ton of other stats, with some claiming that it can even roll a 100% increased spell damage, though further testing is required to prove it.

In worst-case scenarios, you’ll get a Blank Slate that actually grants nothing, making it a blank slate.

However, there’s one overlooked mechanic that the Blank Slate provides in addition to its random stat. Basically, the item can also roll two sets of random stats at the top, making way for even better synergies. For example, it can roll with increased damage for every Ability Level that you have, as is the case with the screenshot above. This bonus will apply to all abilities, granting you massive bonuses depending on your current Ability Level.

That might sound good on paper, though I believe it can be easily surpassed by other armors, especially since they can roll extremely good stats that will make your character even more powerful.  

With all that’s been said, the Blank Slate is finally no longer just a meme item. It can offer some really nice bonuses and interactions depending on the stat it rolls with.

Total War Three Kingdoms: Court Guide

Shameful display!

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!
