    I mercilessly smashed whole concept of gambler into bits and pieces and knitted it up with something you surely didn't expect.

    I used Beary's Hero Template, from here as base and made edits to it.

      • Wabami Von Waggaratt is- or rather was, a royal blood young. Wabami was always wild soul who hunted and wandered many long days and night all by himself in Waggaratt's lands. As the family supervises militarily important lands to king, he saw brute warriors his whole life. He saw even one skirmish from a tree!

        Day he turned 10, her mother had seen a dream of her youngest son becoming known for supernatural. Very spiritual nature of her, she sent Wabami to mage of the East Lagoon to learn magic, right next Wednesday. It was surprise to everyone, but no one could bother her for that, her temper was unimaginable.

        Of course he did not go there, damn bookworms with their boring life, the path of eternal action is mine! That was what he said to himself while switching route from east to west.

        From that point, Wabami has done many things. Bandits got him beaten hard and stole his weapons and baubles the same day. Then looked for a job to earn a sword. He however had no peace in any of the normal jobs; he either hammered too hard or wrote too badly, forgot some delivers or just did not respect his master with his royal pride, or what was left of it.
        Once he found, as last resort, the pit fights, he first were disgusted. Those guys fight for no reason! But then fell in love with it. Every day, more fights to death and more action!

        But it was not enough.

        He fell into vortex of desires. Now with some money, he wasted it in alcohol, drugs, women and gambling.
        His bets rose and rose.

        One day he he found himself from piggery, all naked. His memory was unclear. After a while, he remembered, he had won some shady-looking person in bar. Not just winning, but completely destroying their chances from very beginning and winning all of the leftovers. It was not unusual, but this! This was way too far. Disgusting!!

        As he found something to cover himself with, he went back to bar for revenge. There were something different, a Hero. A hero who were recruiting.
        This life is good, but, man, a life of a hero...
        Of course, whole bar made a fistfight in who were the worthy one. Wabami was the last man standing.

    Am I reading this right? I mean, along with the pure damage this would make your hero indisputably the strongest carry in the game. With just level 7 he has 142 attack speed (100 base and 42 from agi), translating to 1.494 attacks per second. I mean, he does more damage to targets than Spectre does with desolate, whether they are alone or not.
    I think you should fix it.

    Edit fixed a number

    Most heroes have a BAT of 1.7, considering your hero can get at minimum 60 extra pure damage (comparable to Spectres damage to lone targets), I'd increase his BAT to 1.7 (or higher, and I wouldn't put it as high as 2.0 that's Doom territory) and reduce his agi a bit.
    I hope this helps you find a nice middle ground.

    All in needs more notes. You need to point out in detail how damage mitigation works.
