I do admit they are hard to kill harder to tame.but if you have the right gear things could be a lot easier. Don't bring good dinos or any. Get a jetpack u have higher ground, then youve got this. Please up this for others to see
Just before the basilisk uses it's ranged poison attack it will coil up. You can see the green reflection on your character from incoming poison attacks letting you know to change directions when running away. It's best to be on a fast mount because a hit from the venom ball will do direct damage to players even on mounts.
Will pop out of the ground as soon as you trigger its aggro range, if you are in foot run towards dodos or parasaurs, as it will redirect its aggression towards another target, allowing you to get out easily. However fo not linger your escape. As it will quickly kill your diverting maneuvered dodo or parasaur. Yust keep heading away from it.
This thing is a titanaboa on steroids, if you see it’s tail popping out of the ground, try not to get near it unless you have a few strong fighters. If the gas ball hits your tame, get out of the cloud of poison it will probably kill you, except if you have a hazmat suit on.
