On crystal.isles these are NOT tameable at the moment, so you will either have to spawn in a pair of magmasaurs and breed them for eggs or spawn rockdrake eggs, I would go for magmasaurs as they are breedable and rockdrakes aren't. Hope this was useful.
Trapping this creature does not work on official genesis. You will have to find a wall or overhang to grapple onto above the aggro basi and drop eggs down to them. This is the only method that has worked for me on genesis.
You Can Now Tame The Basilisk With a Fertilized Magmasaur Egg in The Volcanic biome on Genesis! Here’s A Tip if Your New To Basilisk Taming, I Majorly Recommend Placing Foundation’s on Your Trap Because They Will Borrow Underground if There’s No Foundation Placed and Lose There Taming Efficiency Also The Fertilized Magmasaur Egg Has To Be Dropped From The Players Inventory Not Your Tame! Good Luck.
Actually the Basilisk only eats Rock Drake fertilized eggs. The wiki says that it should also eat other fertilized eggs, but currently it ignore them. Probably it's a bug, for now feed it Rock Drake eggs
THIS APP IS ACTUALLY TELLING YOU THE TAMING AMOUNT FOR IF IT BURIES!! If you trap it and make it not attack anything you can just throw eggs and it will eat them without attacking you. It said I’d need 3 and I only needed 2!
3 min 30 second feeding interval it seems. I have better taming effectiveness by keeping it aggroed while running it in circles. Lvl 20 only took 2 eggs. Lvl 85 took 4. Drop 1 egg. Aggro. Let it feed. Start stopwatch. When ready to feed it rears up n screams but does not spit
Place 4 pillar high with ceiling, then place eggs around pillar. Kite basilisk to pillar and stand on platform. Wear hazsuit as it will spit but cannot directly hit you or bite and will stay agro the whole time
Keep in mind when taming one of these beasts, that the taming calculator is off on the time interval. Considering that you need to start the taming sequence off with 1 Rock Drake or Magmasaur egg, you need to knock that 4 minutes and 10 seconds off whatever total time DodoDex tells you for your taming settings. I lost some levels on a max level Basilisk because of this fact that I wish I would have known. If you think I'm right, let people know.
Get yourself a Rock Drake, Karkinos, Spinosaur or any other creature usually ignored by this creature, dismout to gain its attention and mount again; Drop the Rock Drake Egg from YOUR inventory and proceed to circle the Basilisk until it looses interest on you. Wait for the feeding interval to end, repeat.
Trap: 2 stone foundations wide, 4 long, 2 dino gates snapped at each side, one on the end. Run basilisk in the ungated end, run around the trap and snap the last gate behind the basilisk. I have a ceiling 5 pillars high at the head end (just outside the trap) to drop eggs from. Once the basilisk is tamed, demo the last gate you snapped, and you can bring a new gate and reuse the trap. Been used on official without issue.
For the people who tried the trick the people in comments are spamming didnt work, you actually have to throw the pet on the ground and place a metal foundation (others dont work) OVER IT (yes you can place it over a shoulder pet) then switch to block and continue taming the snek
I really wish you could feed them other eggs like wyvern eggs. It’s hard finding cluster servers sometimes.
1. If you’re on genesis, get yourself the Mag egg.
2. Find a basillisk
3, take your grapple hook and slingshot yourself onto a high rock
4. Drop the egg
You have yourself a giant snake!
Their venom spit can be very far range and it’s good when raiding or being raided as you can just spit venom at everyone from a distance and watch everyone and everything die.
Be carful never tame these until you get a rockdrake utherwise you are basically sacrificing 2 drakes so get a drake so you can easily gather eggs I world Recommend waiting until you have 3 drakes because early game loosing a drake is bad
I have tamed dozens of these. Set timer for 4 mins 20 seconds. Use ravager. Soon as it eats first egg start timer, drop next egg at 4 min and repeat. Kite it safely but DO NOT lose aggro or you lose efficiency. Don’t even let it go underground. I got a 145 with 97% effiency using rav. Multiple helmets and stim on ur tame to keep awake. Force feed when basil eats egg.
