The Basilisk boss is an especially strong Basilisk. The Basilisk boss can only be fought once, during the Desert Slayer Dungeon miniquest, after Smoking Kills.

The recommended strategy for fighting the Basilisk boss is to fight with melee combat. Besides Mirror shield, Protect from Magic is strongly recommended, since its attacks are solely magic based and therefore it will be unable to deal any damage. However, each attack will still reduce one or two combat stats by around 1-3. A super restore or restore potion will be very useful, although it is possible to replace them with super attack and super strength potions (super restores have the benefit of restoring prayer as well as any lost combat stats, meaning that you will not have to bring prayer potions if you are using super restore potions).


Defeating the Basilisk Boss grants the player 1000 Slayer experience, regardless of his/her current task.

Note that having a familiar during the battle can distract the basilisk into attacking it, but it only attacks the familiar with its bite attack.
