Skin a basilisk crest
The crested basilisk is the size of a large dog, but its vicious-looking talons and sharp, hooked beak are fearsome weapons indeed.  Looking like a cross between a huge fighting rooster and a serpentine lizard, the crested basilisk gazes around with its hypnotic, paralyzing eyes as its scaled reptilian tail whips back and forth.  A bright red crest, more reminiscent of a lizard than of a chicken, adorns its feathered head and neck.

Hunting strategies

Pure and semi characters may have difficulty hunting basilisks in the Outlands, as certain parts of the Ruined Village are anti-magic rooms; any attempts to cast will fizzle. This is due to Mandis poisoning.

Other information

Basilisks have a SMR attack that can put you in longer RT from a single failure than most any other creature in the game. The maneuver can also force you into more offensive stances.

Your surroundings start to blur before you as you lock gazes with the basilisk.  Reeling from its gaze, you fight back and your surroundings slowly come back into focus.
Roundtime: 60 sec.
