Lunastra is a 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.
  • 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.

      Tried arch tempered Lunestra. What a joke, all she does is spam hit and heat up for the 1 shot nuke. She spams it till you get hit, so far casting out is BS. She will wait till you return, or time runs out. Capcom needs to balance this ctap. Behemoth was Easter. This event was a joke. Unless your on the world team as seen on YouTube. These people took out arch temp Lunestra in under 5 min. However no one I have ever seen can work a charge blade like this one guy. Then a icebox, takes her in under 3 min. Don't even consider it. I call BS, Lunestra not one time does her heat nova attack, they bash the crao out of her literally on her side till death. Maybe the key is using a stronger offense so you won't need the defences. Probably why I can't beat here. She appears to be unable to create the super nova, so long you have enough dps to keep her too weak to use So try a really high dmg build and stay on her. Though teostra now makes an appearance in the 1st couple waves so again. Utube is not the best or realistically true for most players.

        A way to survive her supernova attack: if you get knocked down (or superman dive), do not move or attempt to get up. You don't receive the constant damage from the heat while on the ground.

          Anybody who doesn't bring Heat Guard to this fight is just a straight-up idiot. Skilled gunners can sometimes get away without having it, even though I don't remember it. It's beatable w/o heat guard for blademasters but why would you even want to? As for her nova: leave the area (if you're close enough to the edge) or - better yet - farcast. I solo'd this ***** tempered in less than 15 minutes. Git gud or go play casual games.

            Sure she's..."hotter" than Teo. But on the other hand hasn't his explosion element. It could be worse, folks.

              So after she does the atom bomb thing, there is this cray heat wave that rapidly depletes your hp. Can somebody explain to me how to dodge this??

                Just spent 50 minutes on The Teostra and Lunastra quest only do lose just before I was about to kill lunastra. I have the full nergigante set and rathalos greaves (all fully upgraded up to just after the final boss), max fire resist skill and a health Charm 3 with the +50 health from max potions/meals, oh and the fire proof mantle. My weapon is the insect glaive “lights catastrophe” (the one you get using parts from the final boss) and even with all of this fire resist and defense lunastra can ALMOST one shot me with her aoe. Her tail is bull*****Her tackles are bull*****Her tactical f$@king Nuke is bull*****I can’t really see anything I could’ve done wrong here. I even brought mega barrel bombs for both of them. Might pills too. What kind of cruel, sick joke is this?

                    I like how they change the teostra theme up a bit when she appears. Listen to both of them, lunastras is softer and more ELegAnt

                            If something puts me out of the game is this "git gud" nonsense when in reality it only means "farm more". Oh and to the "pros" here spreading their wisdom..how about asking first what equipment that dude has? Maybe there is the reason why he has problems. Lunastra is obviosly no "midgame" content. Be honest with the poor souls and tell them they aren't ready yet instead sending them (literaly) back into the fire wihtout any hope of surviving this slaughterhouse.

                                IMO Temp Luna is the biggest pain in the ass especially since her Nova causes a shitload of chip DMG since it also causes wind pressure u will most likely end up dead before u can eat the jerky or heal =/

                                  Has anyone tried using anything with the Heat Guard skill on Lunastra because that skill is supposed to nulify heat damage or is it the same as using the Effluvial Expert skill on Vaal Hazak and doesn't actually work.

                                  The Barnos Jacket, Lavasoith and the Clearmind Charm appear to be the only items in the game that give the Heat Guard skill.

                                    Will the Kushala set bonus or max Windproof protect you from the gusts of wind she blows at you during her ultimate?

                                      I haven't played MHW since Kulve Taroth first came out, and even then I was only playing sparingly, so this is a hell of a fight to come back to, lol. On one hand, I'm not looking forward to grinding for her materials, but it's also the right kind of difficulty that inspires me to git gud. Not looking forward to Tempered Lunastra whatsoever, though...

                                        I just defeated it, I stayed on top level and kept hitting with long sword. Died twice and she flew away with about 45 seconds left......

                                          So, did the lunestra gem rotate out of the melder? Because i was hoping to use a gold print for it. Once i had gotten my print, i hurriedly ran to the melder elder to be severely disappointed. SEVERELY.
