Basilisk Storyline

The Lizardmen, understandably, are prone to worship the great monsters with whom the share their blood. Dragons, wyverns, giant serpents of all sorts. There those among them who seek to emulate these mighty beasts. Such is the Basilisk, a strong and ambitious warrior of the Lizardfolk. It may be a subject of bragging and wild rumour, but he is said to have battled an actual basilisk for the honour of bearing the name. The battle has been hard and bloody. Even as the serpent finally breathed its last, it managed to wound the proud warrior, filling his blood with terrible poison. A lesser mortal would have fallen, but either through sheer grit or the blessings of Lumaya, the lizardman survived both his grievous injuries and the liquid death coursing through his veins. By doing so, he gained the favour of something far greater than himself – favour that allows the Basilisk, whose name was now written in blood, to rise and fight through wounds that would have been mortal.

    He still has the block damage on his passive, but he has to have three star ascension.

  2. extric8

    Basilisk has been nerfed, he no longer has places a block damage when his passive revives him

  3. burnout1968

    I have pulled four (4!) of these guys but only one Skullcrown : ( . The Plarium RNG is very “streaky”. I have kitted two of them to lvl 60. One is in Retaliation gear, the other is in Avenging. Both have >400 Resist and with Vogoth and Skullcrown make for a nasty counter-attack Arena team. Crit rate is “only” 98% and crit. damage is “only” 160%. SPD is to be kept as low as possible. They don’t hit that hard, but they retaliate often enough against blender and control teams (which tend not to be very tanky), so they win 90% of the time. Avoid Madame Serris if possible. It is hard to get the RES high enough to prevent her from stripping the block damage buff. Once that block damage is up, they slowly retaliate the enemy to death. It makes me wonder what a 4-basilisk team would do.

  4. Jennifer

    I agree stun is ideal for him but he was one of the first champs I built and you can easily farm retaliation gear in campaign before you get to the dungeons where it’s much harder to get the stats needed. You definitely want his crit rate at 100 and damage as high as possible in any set.. Regardless, you are right. I mean his damage is absolutely ridiculous. I don’t have skullcrown yet, after more than 2 years I still haven’t pulled her. I am unlucky in voids even though it’s the only shard event I spend every single time. I finally just pulled siphi. Anyway, I would imagine he is one of the hardest hitting aoe champs in epic form. I was seriously dumbfounded when that kid told me this champ was garbage. I now know which content creator actually has it in the champs description. I’m not going to blast him but definitely makes me think he may not be too bright. 🙂 I wouldn’t take his advice after reading that. I actually like this site and just used it for a champ for the 1st time yesterday.

  5. Cevrail

    Anyone notice that the modifier on his a2 is higher than both of skullcrown’s modifiers combined? He has a different purpose than skullcrown, but people who look at modifiers should look at this guy. CC champ that still hits hard. Should be a great champ to speed up dt waves and dungeon farming.

  6. Cevrial

    Not sure why this guy is rated so low on everything. I used to think he would do great as a straight-up nuker in retaliation gear, but as I get further into the game I realize this champ is golden in stun set. He’s a hybrid role cc champ that really likes a Stun Set.

    If you compare his a1 modifier to skullcrown (1.8 with second hit when target’s hp above 50%) his is higher (3) once the target is below 50% hp. I have seen blender teams in arena run both of these champs and I usually got crushed by them, even when I went first, but those teams had them built really well.

    Retaliation doesn’t work as well for this guy unless you build him high resistance because CC will shut him down. I like him fast, high accuracy, and in a stun set. Make him aggressive, don’t let him get hit. That passive gives him a second chance to land that stun and still deal great damage.

  7. Jennifer

    So I normally don’t look champs up online because what I love about the game is trying all my new champs and figuring out where to use them but I was having a chat with a new player who was actually bummed he pulled this champ. When I asked him why he said he was labeled garbage online. I don’t see it on this page but I am glad you have a comment box. This champ is an absolute beast and helped me everywhere until endgame. He is still a part of many of my dungeon teams and vital to faction wars. I have him in a counter attack set along with retribution mastery, high crit rate/ damage and his acc is only about 160 and he still lands his stun every single time. I mean once you get to level 17 in spider, fk, and dragon he is less useful there but everywhere else he is still great. Definitely not trash and worth building, booking, and leveling to 60 if you pull him early or midgame. One of my favorite champs in the game.

    Ha, I auto filled my info. Didn’t mean to do that. I just saw the video labeled underrated nuker so I guess it wasn’t here where he read this champ is garbage. This champ is definitely a beast nuker and aoe one at that.

  8. Dementia Joe

    Trying retaliation set on him for spider, so far no luck. He just dies to spiderlings. Thinking maybe if I put masteries on him, like lifedrinker and bloodthirst, then I might have more luck keeping him alive. Not sure if I want to invest, is it worth a try or am I beating a dead horse?

  9. RelativeNewbie

    @knx: Everything is dependent on multipliers and his a1 is underwhelming in that regard for an epic. For comparison’s sake, Saurus, an uncommon that also has an aoe a1, has a multiplier of 2 for it. That’s an uncommon with an a1 multiplier that’s only slightly lower than Basilisk’s.

    That being said, there’s nothing to stop anyone from giving him a stun set and turning him into a cc champ…

  10. korukyu

    Basilisk has really carried my team thru the early game. He nukes spiderlings in lower dungeon lvls and with a retaliation set, his auto revive + block damage + counterattack has been really helpful at KOs in the arena, too. This dude is easily one of my fave champs, even as he’s slowly being replaced by others in my strategies.

  11. GamadrilOP

    @knx he’s the wrong affinity for campaign farming.

  12. Nauticus

    I was fortunate enough to get Basilisk early. He was a game changer, and he is still carrying me well into the mid game. Amazing Campaign farmer, amazing in dungeons, hard to kill in arena. It’s very surprising he is ranked so low here.

  13. knx

    Why would you give a champ with AoE on his A1 only 3 stars for campaign ? Seems like an ideal food farmer to me… his base ATK is comparible to Elhain, who i use for campaign farming. Now that i found Basilisk I’m pretty sure he will replace Elhain in my near future of the game…

  14. Kenneth

    ACC should be 0

  15. tictric

    Why has this guy only 1 star while Saurus got 5 star in FW?
    Imho Basilisk is also an option for a stun set. While Saurus does a bit more AoEs and is easier to aquire and book, Basilisk got better base stats (easier to keep alive, esp. in combination with his passive revive) and better damage multipliers.

  16. Uriel

    Underrated I think.

    Especially in the early game, he is a proper troll. My alt account (3 60s total) farms Dragon 13 and Minotaur 12 based mostly on him in LS set. He outlasts the dragon by getting 5 turns between his own deaths and healing up almost to full too quickly for the boss to finish him between the resses.

  17. Heavy10mm

    @arwicfire when you said “I do get that there are better people, but shouldnt the rating be more on how good he is, and not how good he is in comparison?” you hit the nail on the head. IDK why this never comes into people’s reckoning. It’s important

  18. Daniel Smith

    Sincerely think you’ve under rated this champion. he’s been very valuable for me as I build my account. Mix his A1 with Valkyrie’s shiled/counterattack and you have a very formidable duo in the arena against a wealth of magic opponents that you see all the time. Due to that combo I’ve seen my Basilisk do 260k damage in the arena. Love your work but I think you need to reassess this guy because he’s far more useful than your ratings indicate.

  19. arwicfire

    @bahi –
    I guess that was badly worded. i was not saying i would want to use A2, as you stated the stun has no affect. i meant it more that the A2 does alot of single target damage, i personally notice that his A2 on a single target does more damage than his A1. EX, in arena i open with his A2 and i can get 40K+ damage, where his A1 at the same time instead may only see 20K. not sure why that is but i have experimented with it and its true. so for spider if it is nearly dead, ya i have used A2 to see if i can finish it. but i agree, no i do not recommend A2 for spider at all.
    thank you for that statement so i could correct mine.

  20. Bahi

    @arwicfire – why you use A2 to spider? Spider have imunity to stun :-O

    Venom Spray: Attacks all enemies. Damage increases by 15% if the target has [Poison] debuffs.
    Enfeeble (Cooldown 4 turns): Attacks all enemies. Has a 70% chance of decreasing the Turn Meter by 30%. If a target’s Turn Meter is fully depleted, places a [Sleep] debuff for 1 turn.
    Spiderling Horde (Cooldown 2 turns): Spawns 6 Spiderlings at the start of the round. Spawns 2 Spiderlings at the start of each enemy Champion’s turn. Spawns 4 Spiderlings at the end of Skavag’s turn. Skavag can have a maximum of 10 Spiderlings in battle at any time. Skavag consumes all remaining Spiderlings at the start of each turn. If Skavag consumes Spiderlings, she will not consume them on the following turn. Skavag heals by 3% of her MAX HP for each Spiderling consumed, and permanently increases her ATK by 10% for each Spiderling consumed. Heals from Lifesteal Artifacts and skills that heal based on damage inflicted will only heal Champions by 35% of the stated amount when attacking Skavag or her Spiderlings.
    Healing Assured: Immune to [Heal Reduction] debuffs.
    Almighty Immunity: Immune to [Stun], [Freeze], [Sleep], [Provoke], [Block Cooldown Skills], [Fear], and [True Fear] debuffs. Also immune to HP exchange effects, HP balancing effects, and cooldown increasing effects.

  21. Bahi

    If they resist him, you need to setup him with more ACC 😀

    I’m trying to use him to place a stun debuff in the Arena but it is resisted everytime. How is this possible when his A2 says places stun debuff? Is he broken?

  22. Michael David Sigler

    I think it’s worth mentioning that for faction wars I use his 6 star Talent as Fearsome Presence with him in a stun set. He doesn’t deal that much damage for being an attack unit and I mainly just use him for stuns. (Obviously not the way to go in lifesteal, etc.)

  23. Bruce

    I’m trying to use him to place a stun debuff in the Arena but it is resisted everytime. How is this possible when his A2 says places stun debuff? Is he broken?

  24. arwicfire

    I agree with re-eval. I have used him in spider and also i even use him in Arena. I can one hit with his A2 almost any one person. and in spider den on auto he will never use his A2, as long as you dont target the main spider, but even if you do he hit so much harder it is almost worth it if you have more than one person to clean up the mini’s. Heck i have 2 of them and the own most spider den’s. I do get that there are better people, but shouldnt the rating be more on how good he is, and not how good he is in comparison?

  25. RastalRahl

    He only uses his A1 against spider, so I think he must be re-evaluated in that category

  26. Ayumilove Post author

    @Dado: Basilisk’s A2 Stun debuff does not affect bosses and waste 1 turn of his AoE turn to attack enemies. There are many other champions who have this ability such as Zephyr Sniper (Uncommon Champion) but offers additional benefits that helps speed up, increase survivability or boost damage output of the entire team. Basilisk could be your Force champion bait but there are better champions out there such as Sinesha, Infernal Baroness, Nazana and Skullcrown.

  27. Dado

    Same wuestion. It jas 4.9 rating for Spider’s dden in the game, so I think it doesn’t deserve only 3 stars here. Is it because of A2 which will be used every 4th round?

  28. Durahorn

    why isn’t this champion good for spider den?
