Moon Orbs in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands serve as a special form of currency in the endgame. Once you complete the main campaign, you’ll have the opportunity to spend these orbs on weapon enchantments, a captivating mechanic that becomes available at this stage.
To check how many Moon Orbs you possess, simply open your inventory and glance at your gold. The Moon Orbs are displayed on the right, just above the symbol for the Skeleton Key. But the burning question remains: How can you acquire more Moon Orbs in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands?
Moon Orb Farming
To obtain additional Moon Orbs in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands, you’ll need to finish the main campaign and unlock the Chaos Chamber. Along the way, you’ll stumble upon scattered Moon Orbs during campaign missions, but they will only be enough to give you a taste of the enchanting experience. The Chaos Chamber, on the other hand, is where you’ll truly amass a plentiful supply of Moon Orbs as you navigate through its challenging waves.
Within the Chaos Chamber, Moon Orbs can be found on the ground, and the best part is, you don’t even have to collect them manually. You might already have a significant stockpile without realizing it. By simply walking over the orbs, they will automatically be added to your inventory for later use.
For those aiming to maximize their Moon Orb gains, it’s highly recommended to complete the Shrine of the Crazed Earl, located in the Overworld. This achievement will grant you a valuable +10% Moon Orb gain.
The Chaos Chamber, a remarkable endgame mechanic hosted by The Dragon Lord, awaits those who have succeeded in unlocking it. Situated behind the central courtyard and fountain in Queen Butt Stallion’s castle, the Chaos Chamber provides convenient access to vending machines for selling unnecessary gear, as well as a Lost Loot Machine for retrieving forgotten treasures. In fact, you can even enchant your weapons before venturing into the Chaos Chamber. No need to run errands all over Brighthoof to prepare yourself!
How to Use Moon Orbs

Now that you know where to find Moon Orbs, let’s explore how to make the most of them in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Visit the Blacksmith (or the Chaos Chamber) in Brighthoof and engage with the enchanting table. At the Blacksmith, you can locate the enchanting table on the right side, next to the mesmerizing swinging hammers.
By interacting with the table, your entire inventory will appear on the right side of the screen. Take note that items with a green checkmark are currently equipped. Select the weapon, spell, or ward you wish to enchant, and hold down the X button to apply a random enchantment. Don’t worry if the result doesn’t meet your expectations! You can keep re-rolling until you discover an enchantment that perfectly complements your chosen weapon. However, be mindful not to be overly selective, as you won’t be able to revert to the previous two or three enchantments once you’ve made a new selection.
In the example above, our character doesn’t particularly deal dark damage, so the +20% Dark Damage buff enchantment wasn’t suitable. Fortunately, we could discard that enchantment and retain our unenchanted weapon. However, the cost of our next enchantment doubled.
It’s worth noting that in the enchanting screen, the “swaps between fire types” line might appear truncated, but rest assured, you won’t lose your preferred fire type when enchanting a weapon in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands.
Your initial enchantment will only require two Moon Orbs, which is quite affordable, especially if you manage to obtain a desirable one on your first attempt. However, as you progress, re-rolling becomes considerably more expensive. The Moon Orb cost doubles each time, even if you decide not to accept the new enchantment. As you can imagine, the price can quickly add up.
The enchanting user interface in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands may not be the most intuitive, but fear not! Here are some helpful tips and tricks to navigate it more effectively. Sorting your inventory by type can simplify the process, as it prevents gear from shifting around. Your equipped items will always remain at the bottom of the list, regardless of how you organize it. Therefore, if you wish to experiment with enchantments on a new weapon, make sure to equip it beforehand to streamline your search. The same principle applies to spells and wards.
Enchanted Gear in Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
While exploring Wonderlands, you’ll come across legendary gear adorned with a golden outline, indicating that it has already been enchanted. However, it’s important to note that you can enchant gear at any rarity level using the enchanting station. Uncommon, rare, epic, and legendary weapons all require the same number of Moon Orbs to acquire enchantments.
The enchantment for your gear will be displayed in yellow text, nestled between its stats and effects. Enchantments can bestow increased damage buffs, such as the aforementioned Dark Damage enhancement, or trigger specific bonuses upon using action skills or spells. For instance, we encountered an enchantment that amplifies companion damage by 20% whenever our action skill is active. However, it seems more effective with action skills that have a longer duration, like the Spore Warden’s Blizzard Skill, which spans an impressive 16 seconds.
Before delving into enchanting, take into account your character class. Consider the type of damage you specialize in, the duration of your skills, and the frequency of your spell and skill usage. Armed with this knowledge, head over to the enchanting table and start spending those Moon Orbs wisely.
Finally, don’t hesitate to visit the changing station to re-spec your character if you stumble upon an enchantment that perfectly complements your favorite weapon. This method is significantly cheaper than repeatedly re-rolling enchantments.
