The basilisk is the fourth-level creature of the Fortress faction in Heroes of Might and Magic III. It can be recruited from the basilisk pit. The basilisk can be upgraded to the greater basilisk.

The basilisk and greater basilisk have developed the ability to petrify their prey for three rounds. Their attacks have a 20% chance of making this occur. Petrified creatures take 50% damage from attacks and are unfrozen when struck.OffBck

Basilisks are solid fighters that can protect the weaker members of the army, or charge the enemy. Their petrifying attack is great for taking enemy units out of the combat for a few rounds, though the chances for the petrification to take effect is 20%.
