Lunastra Combat Info
- Deals Fire Damage
- Is immune to Fire
- Weak to Ice and Dragon Damage
- Moderately weak to Stun and Blast Damage
- The Head, Wings and Tail are the weak spots.
- Using the Fireproof Mantle is recommended for this fight.
- Combat tactics: Blue flames do not apply fire blight, but they do heat damage. Lunastra heats the air around her enough that cool drinks are required to prevent damage from the air. Her supernova attack has very large range and boasts twice. There is a special bond move where she combines her blast with Teostra to blast three times with a larger range and damage. Use Astera Jerkey after her first nova blast to heal red health on your bar and increase recovery. If Nergigante appears there is a rare turf war that does approximately 2000 damage to Lunastra. Kushala Daora can also have a turf war with her that does approximately 3000 damage to both participants. Use these to your advantage when fighting her.
- Lunastra's high body temperature and dust saps away health unless you use a Cool Drink. Its dust and blue flame explode when it comes into contact with Fire, so use a bomb or Crystalburst.
- Using Flash Pods against Lunastra will anger her, and if she can will cause her to set the field on fire immediately.
