On combat with basilisk:
- Heard can use mirrored sunglasses to handle the gaze of the basilisk - this doesn't work
- Heard gaze attack will also kill the light from the MWLC spell - needs testing

- Wearing a blindfold works, but you get blind fighting penalties and sadly cannot look at the basilisk.
- I think I tested the mirrored breastplate and it didn't work, but it's been years so I'm not too sure.
- It would be interesting if you could sneak in (with blindfold?) and use a camera at the basilisk while staying in hiding, because if you fight while taking a picture you just get a blurry mess. Might not work.

I'm sure I'm missing the point, but why not just walk in and take a picture without attacking the basilisk? Also, why do you want a picture of the basilisk?--Kartoffel (talk) 18:03, 26 July 2021 (EDT)
Oh just to see if it has a description and what it is. As I dimly recall you cannot see a description when you look at the basilisk after you get out of stunlock, but yes it might work to just take a picture.
