When taming this, be careful, Mantas and sharks follows a basilosaurus around and will attack you if you approach or feed the basilosaurus. According to the Basilosaurus dossier, Mantas usually follow them because of their eating habits (Well very messy) and it leaves plenty of leftovers for them. They attack you when you feed a basilosaurus because it leaves no leftovers for them.
I believe the dossier, but yeah.
Click the arrow pointing to the sky if useful, thanks 😊 (Sorry for the dossier spoiler)
Ride dolphin or manta, water creature won't attack you while riding a water dino, then go near basilo feed it, Don't unride or you'll see your self dying, put food on your hot bar then click it when near basilo u can feed basilo without unriding. Up! So no noobs will be eaten by manta or megalodon lol
Basilosaurus are found in the oceans surrounding herbivore Island
Basilosaurus are passive tames that arent aggressive towards you at all and they are carnivores so feed them meat.
Basilosaurus are surrounded by mantas and they will attack you when you feed or attack the Basilosaurus, there are plesiosaurs,megalodons,leedsicthis and tusothuthis where the Basilosaurus are,
Basilosaurus are slow so you're underwater mount can keep up with it.
Abilities when tamed:
Basilosaurus are immune to jellyfish stings and eel shocks and cannot be grabbed by squid, they produce oil in there inventory but it spoils, they regenerate health fast near the surrface, they can shoot rainbows out of their blowhole using one of their attacks
Disabilities when tamed:
Basilosaurus lose health when they are in deep water
A great beginner tame, once you have an icthyosaurus, you can swim up to it and passive tame it. I just tamed one, and less than 5 minutes after I tamed a level 4, it’s killed 2 megalodons and 4 mantas. Like so noobs and beach bobs can see.
- Immune to electric shocks (electrophorus/eel, jellyfish)
- Immune to tuso/squid hug
- Long taming process due to the first feed in which you have to wait for its hunger bar to drop 10% to feed again
- Loses health in deep waters
- Slow turning
How to tame:
Get a good water tame (prefferably sarcosuchus or baryonyx) and get the manta's attention WITHOUT HITTING THE BASILOSAURUS, afterwards, kill all the mantas and then begin feeding the Basilosaurus, it is important to note that the time between first and second feed is long (abt 6 minutes), try to stay near your basilosaurus and kill any mantas/megs that come near it. That's it from me, bye.
Good fighter, immune to jellies, supernatural healing boost at the surface, produces oil in its inventory, impervious to squid grabs, looks kinda cute too, only one bad thing about it: it gets squashed in the deep! Only slowly but the damage is there!
Okay, so I saw one in a river opening on Crystal Isles. I thought the mantas attack you as soon as you go near. So I slowly approached the tail near the river bank. The mantas didn’t agro on me, I thought I was just far enough away. No. Oh no no no noooo. It turns out the mantas ATTACK the second you feed it. Please don’t do what I did haha
King of the sea. A tuso or mosa will do more damage but you can not be knocked off a basil making them essential for underwater caves which are full of jellies, Eels and even tuso's. They are also the perfect size to navigate through them without getting stuck or having to dismount. If you have a Baryonyx they are very easy tames, just use the AoE spin attack to kill all the Manta's and you can passively tame it at your leisure. Combine their oil with organic poly and water in a cooker to make soap which doesn't expire and can be ground back into oil and organic poly when you need it.
For that one guy saying these things are op and you need to nerf them, the ocean is already full of under powered, ultra nerfed creatures that you can tame, like seriously man what are thinking, the ocean is fun but a bunch of animals are weak compared to alphas, and can easily die to electrophorus and cnidara, the basilo is the only exception, so you wanna nerf it.
Can kill squid like their kin in real life. Tame a 150 and you can take on alphas like they are regular ones. Just up health and memes. They recover steam so quick boosting it is pointless. An all around amazing creature, 10/10.
