Basil appears in the Clockwork Terminals at depths 4, 13, and 23 of the Clockworks. His recipe list is randomized upon each visit, and he has been observed to offer between six and 25 recipes at a time. However, some aspects of his behavior are predictable. All knights in a party are offered the same recipe list. At depth 4, he offers 1- and 2-star recipes, including at least one of the latter. At depth 13, he offers 2-, 3-, and 4-star recipes, including at least one of the latter. At depth 23, he offers 4- and 5-star recipes, including at least one of the latter.
While many recipes are available from Hall of Heroes or other vendors, there are a number of recipes available only from Basil in Clockwork Terminals. These include recipes for items on alchemy paths originating from boss-dropped tokens and all 3-star "breaker" series recipes (such as Blazebreak Armor, Surge Breaker Shield, etc). (Although Searing Edge and Shocking Edge are available from Bazaar vendors, the recipes are not.)
Basil also appears in mission lobbies. Before each mission, he offers a totally predictable selection of recipes relevant to that mission. These recipes are listed below.
