Health 515 (+77) Health Regen 7.5 (+0.65)
Attack Damage 59 (+2.4) Attack Speed 0.67 (+3.1%)

Basko is a Melee, physical damage Ability Bruiser who is a jack of all trades, master of none. Basko can play almost any role in Dawngate, having acceptable damage output and above average Health, while being able to jungle well with his AoE DoT and shield, and having the ability to chase down and stick onto enemies with his Ultimate and his second ability. With his average damage output, Basko relies on more drawn out fights where he can use his extra tankiness to his advantage, before chasing down the enemy for the kill with his ult. Late game he can be an absolute beast if built correctly, being unstoppable due to his underdog passive boosting up one of stats mid-fight. However, if the enemy can disengage long enough for underdog to burn out, Basko is left at a disadvantage, opening up an opportunity for the enemy team.


Basko, The Enforcer
Age: 28 Place of Birth: Mercantile City - State of Maridia Vitality: Resolve
Allies: None Acquaintances: None Enemies: None
“Don't want to see the world burn; want to make it worth living in.”

In Maridia, the masses spend their lives laboring in hunger and squalor for the benefit of a few wealthy merchant princes. Basko, once an enforcer for the criminal gangs of the slums, means to change that with the Spirit of Resolve.


I'm s'posed to say something about how we don't know the Spirits' will. How we'll all meet again someday, in a world where things are better.

Ain't a smart man. Done thing I ain't proud of. Hurt people on the say-so of others. Broke people for a few coins from bad men. All of us fightin' over scraps dropped by princes. Even with that, that blood money, you work 20 years and ain't got enough gold tucked away. Not to keep your boy from choking on his own lungs. You don't even got enough to lay a stone, to mark where his head come to rest.

Think I had enough.

There's them who got too much. More'n their share. Things gained by selling what we make. They build them towers over us, and spit down that they're our betters, and 'spect us to be grateful for the rain. They say if we was good as them, we'd have towers too. They say that, and we believe 'em.

I say we pile wood under them towers. We start a fire, and don't put it out 'til the rot's burned clean from Maridia's heart. Until that day, I ain't giving them no more kids. Not to grind up in their gears or burn in their forges. I ain't laying with your mom again.

Adan, we din't get to know you well as we should. You was just a little thing. You din't get enough smiles in the time you had. Someday you'll have brothers and sisters. We'll tell them all about you as they breathe clean air.

Because there's gotta be a better world, yeah? There must be.
