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

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

With slight increases to attack, defense, hit points and speed, this is a useful upgrade, but unremarkable. If money is a problem, this upgrade can wait. Like the basilisk, the greater basilisk also has the petrifying attack ability.
