Enemy Description

 

Combat Information

  • Basilisks clearly signal their attacks and their smoke often needs a second to take effect.
  • Moving behind the Basilisk is usually enough to evade the deadly smoke.
  • While they are easy to kill, Basilisks can spot you from a good distance away and run at you very quickly.
  • Expelled gas will curse you, which is an instant kill.
  • Tend to fight in groups, it is best to try and seperate one by one if possible.
  • Can be lured?
  • Can be Rapported?
  • Stacking many curse-resistance items, armors, and spells (Curse Ward Greatshield, Cursebite Ring, Fleshbite Ring,  Prayer Set, Antiquated set, Mossfruit, Profuse Sweat) will allow you to effectively facetank any curse buildup and quite safely clear out groups of basilisks.

      fun fact: those big ass eyes are not there real eyes if you look closely at them you will see that they have to smaller eyes on the nose region that I believe are there true eyes and the big eyes are mean't to scare of attackers because nature makes no since

        Why does it have big weird eyes? If you look at its mouth, it actually hss natural monster lizard eyes. Besides the huge goofy ones. We need a critical blow from the front where we poke those giant eyes for massive damage and stun. Lore wise, any one know why it needs giant extra eyes? Dark souls 2 Had ones that didnt have giant extra eyes. That looked cooler.
