Teostra Attack Patterns

  • Claw Blast: Teostra makes this attack and blast orbs spread all around. It can fire up the orbs at any time and blast everything around.
  • Leaping Attack: Teostra makes its way towards the oblivious enemies and blasts with a flame armor.
  • Divebomb: Blast orbs spread everywhere on the ground after Teostra makes this move. Now, it flies away and then turns back and then heads towards all the Blast orbs to ignite them.
  • Line Explosion: This move allows to arrange Blast orbs in a straight line and then blast them after some time. Blast orbs usually explode suddenly
  • Ring Explosion: Teostra spreads blast orbs and makes a circle around it. Now, after some time Teostra will explode the blast orbs.
  • Flamethrower Attacks: Teostra attempts to blaze up flamethrowers in different ways. So, keep yourself on alert always.
  • Circular Ground Explosion: By activating Super Flame Armor state, Teostra puts a circular area to fire and everything inside this circular area gets burnt.
  • The Supernova: Again, after activating Super Flame Armor state, it forms a huge sphere and causes an explosion. This is the most dangerous move of Teostra, so you need to be careful. Anyone can get KO’d on one hit as a result of this move.

How to Defeat Teostra in Monster Hunter Rise?

Teostra’s weak points are its Head, Tail, and Wings. The Head is the weakest part of its body, so make sure that you target that the best you can. Going for the Tail is also a good tactic, but beware, as his Legs are armored, and hitting them won’t do him much damage.

When Teostra uses the flame attack, just dodge out the way of it, and then you can attack him while he is in cooldown.

During the fight, Teostra will mostly stay on the ground even though he can fly around. You can use this to your advantage to land blows to him regularly after you dodge his attacks.

There’s a fair chance the Elder Dragon could knock you out if he switches target and charges around. If this happens, you will become stunned and vulnerable to his more dangerous attacks. Maintain your health and try to avoid Teostra if he isn’t launching a fire attack.

When Teostra takes to air, you can use flash pods to blind him and bring him down. When Teostra enrages, he will use his Supernova attack.

Get as much distance as you can and then use flash pods to blind them and then launch an attack while he is blinded and in cooldown.
