Shin Megami Tensei V Basilisk

Shin Megami Tensei V Basilisk Specializes in Poison Damage

Someone go make a Phoenix cry because today’s Shin Megami Tensei V daily demon digest focuses on the Basilisk. It is a member of the Drake race of demons but as opposed to the more serpentine interpretation of basilisks over the past years, Basilisk in Shin Megami Tensei V (and indeed, other games in the series) more resembles a rooster. Fittingly, unlike other demons who can communicate via intelligible words, Basilisk squabbles.

Though Basilisk legends originated from Europe, they supposedly live in the northern regions of Africa. In the video, Basilisk shows off his poison by infecting a herd of Berith enemies with Venom Breath. He also shows off a physical attack called Venom Hunt that increases the amount of damage it can deal when an enemy is poisoned. Though Basilisk specializes in inflicting status ailments and using said status ailment to increase his own damage potential, he is also capable of using Ice skills to attack enemies. Tomorrow will be a change of pace, as Atlus will introduce a Fairy.
