Obsidian Basilisk drop statistics

In my experience, farming the basilisk was much more fun than the yeti boss the month before. They reduced the respawn timer to about 30–60 min and instances tended not to fill up before the boss actually spawned. As a result, I was able to get more than twice as many kills (141 on the basilisk, 63 on the yeti boss). Much like with the Black Dragon drop statistics from last month, the loot table contains a huge number of things and some of them never dropped for me at all, so the table below is just meant to give us a rough idea of the relative frequency of different types of drops. It shows what I got on my guardian from the Hunter’s Trove of the Obsidian Basilisk (blue caches). In addition, during this week, I also got four Slayer’s Caches of the Obsidian Basilisk (purple caches) directly from the boss kills, but these aren’t shown in the table below; nor are any results shown from kills on other characters.

Slayer’s Cache of the Black Dragon (purple cache)

Seen on other characters: 1× Fallen Leviathan set, 2× Heaven’s Lake set, 1× female Stygian dancer pet, 1× Topaz Komodo pet, 3× raid gear.

If we compare this with the Black Dragon drop statistics from a month ago, we can see many similarities and parallels, but also a few differences.

  • The blue health and stamina potions (Potent Daggamalt, Dire Sweetpressed Haste) seem to have been removed from the loot table.
  • Health food (Ta Neheh Leaf Elixir) is still much more common than stamina food (Kingsmight Ale).
  • Among the social sets, the plan seems to be that the current “regional” set drops a lot more often than the “global” sets. The Heaven’s Lake set is just as common here as the Sanctum Atlantis set was on the dragon.
  • There seems to be a kind of regional vs. global distinction for the non-set social items as well. For example, the tigerskin cloaks have been dropping from all three portent bosses so far, but I didn’t see any Atlantean Spellbinder’s Tunics or Tarantia-style face masks from the basilisk. But on the other hand, I didn’t see any corresponding new Khitai-themed items either.
  • In the crappy novelty consumable department, there seems to be one item that predominates on each boss. On the dragon, that was Mitra’s Blessed Ointment; here on the basilisk, it seems to be the Fatal Concoction, which AFAIK hasn’t been dropping from the first two portent bosses. Several of the items that used to drop from the dragon (Ritual Knife, Prayer Book, Fermented Brain Juices) don’t seem to be dropping from the basilisk.

Purple cache statistics

This table shows, for each boss, the total number of kills I’ve done (on all characters, regardless of class), the total number of purple caches I got (either as drops from blue caches or directly from the boss kill), and the things that dropped out of those purple caches. The “Simple Relics” column shows the number of times that I got simple relics from purple caches, followed by the total number of simple relics thus obtained. So for example, from the Dragon’s purple caches, I got simple relics seven times and I got a total of 29 simple relics that way. I never got any Rare Relics but I heard that some other people did, so I reserved a column for them as well.

    The ritual knife was a actual drop from the basilisk

    The Potent Daggamalt, Dire Sweetpressed Haste, Absolute Moonspill, Ritual Knife and Fermented Brain Juices all dropped for me from the Basilisk. The potions did seem to drop less overall though. And your purple box drop rate was much better than mine. Out of 338 Basilisk kills, I had 5 purple boxes drop direct, and 1 purple box from a blue box.

      Correction: 338 Blue boxes total, 343 Total kills.

    Thanks for the info! Damn, that’s really bad luck with the purple boxes… :S
