Lunastra is an Elder Dragon in Monster Hunter World (MHW). ナナ・テスカトリ
(Nana Tesukatori) in Japanese.

 

 A rare female Elder Dragon that litters the air with hot blue dust. Reports of it traveling with her mate, Teostra, are still unconfirmed.

Lunastra Details & Locations

 

Lunastra Combat Info

  • Deals mhw-fire-damageFire Damage
  • Is immune to mhw-fire-damageFire
  • Weak to mhw-ice-damageIce and mhw-dragon-damageDragon Damage
  • Moderately weak to stunStun and blast 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.
  • Aim for her wings when she is downed if using a sever damaging weapon which is her highest weak-point for those types of weapons while head for blunt. while standing it is best to use a blunt weapon on her head or ammo on her tail. if using a sever weapon while standing her wings can be struck but for low reaching weapons its best to attack hind legs for the hit zone values there are higher then the rest of her ground level body parts until she is downed.
  • Lunastra's high body temperature and dust saps away health unless you use a Cool Drink,  Heat Guard skill, and/or Fireproof mantle. Its dust and blue flame explode when it comes into contact with Fire, so use a bomb or Crystalburst.
  • On top of shielding you from Lunastra's heat aura, Heat Guard will also protect you from the puddles of fire it puts on the floor, but it will not protect you from fireblightFireblight.
  • Using Flash Pods against Lunastra will not force her to plummet from the sky. It will also cause her to use supernova if she is charged with her aura. However, using Flash Pods don't always cause her to do this, occasionally (and always when mounted) she will flinch or be blinded but not use her ultimate.

      Ok seriously no joke. I have almost never fought Lunastra in Iceborne since she wasn't in my main quests I do, and also partially because I don't like fighting her. What I meant by "almost never" I mean I literally only fought her once in Iceborne. And what quest you may ask? Well it's non other then the temperd Lunastra Seliana event quest fight ofc. Finished the quest with other players and almost failed. Also I heard (actually saw it on online when I saw another person playing) that there is a optional quest for Lunastra master rank 6. How do I get it?

        I want to shake the hands of the person that designed Arch Tempered Lunastra. That said, Bomb the ***** to oblivion.

          So I understand that Lunastra's basically immune to Flash Pods, but is she also immune to Dung Pods? I slowly shot a full magazine of Dung Pods at her in the Guiding Lands and it did nothing. She wasn't enraged, wasn't even in full heat-up. Just a big stinky girl flailing around stupidly, preventing me from finishing my capture of another monster.

            Ha! I've got MR gear now, your supernova won't do jack sh*t to me anymore!!!

            MR Lunastra is added....

            MR Lunastra: "The fu*k did you say to me you little sh*t!?"

            Me: *starts burning to a crisp.

              I have fought Lunastra with my friend, and my god was it much easier than alone, but still a pain. Lunastras nova attack can sometiems leave you with a sliver of health (If you are lucky enough). I thought Lunastra was gonna be easier, oh boy was i wrong.

                I hate that she's just immune to clash pods... for NO reason. there isn't even a lore reason she's just immune because "***** you"

                  And again we see a really cool (or hot) monster completely ruined by the fight. Tempered MR Lunastra is the worst thing I’ve ever encountered in this game. An absolute nightmare of a fight. Maybe I’m just being bitter and making it sound worse than it really is, but still... I’m not ever gonna fight her again unless I really need to.

                    While I see a bunch of people here complaining about the nova, my complaint is the the knockdown and stun spam.... like Serriously, I can’t get up half the time. It’s like I’m playing street fighter and my opponent knows how to infinite my ass into the air. I mean even with recovery protection being a part of the game I just,,,, Ugh.... also, for those of you who don’t want to deal with the nova, just bring a dragon weapon and bump it’s elder seal up. No dust means you can hammer away, prevent her from nova Ing and it SEEMS to reduce her damage out put (note this is not confirmed, just something I noticed when I should’ve died like 5 times but didn’t and she had no nova dust due to dragonseal.

                        For charge blade users ( I'm putting this because no one else would), get gigafrost 2 with ice charm and two pieces of Kushala's armor (head and coil). This part can help with anyone else, hit her with the boulder trap then the dragonater the finally another boulder trap. Might not repel her but does help. This is for Pandora's Arena.

                          Tip for beating Lunastra/Teostra quest, solo (Assumming you can solo each of them) - Pull Lunastra to a different area from Teostra and beat her first. Because Teostra is passive while Lunastra aggressive, you can fight her without her mate noticing. - In case you hear a loud unique roar while fighting Lunastra, that's Teostra coming in that exact area to help. As said above, while Teostra is flying to that area, pull Lunastra away, again. Rinse and repeat until Lunastra fly to the pair's nest to sleep. It's might sound tedious, but if you're not up to dealing with them both, you should do this. - When Lunastra's resting, Teostra will be there to guard her. If you did the two steps above correct, Teostra will still, jokingly, be passive toward you until Lunastra take a hit. So time that hit right, this should be the only time you're fighting them both.
