Teostra Details & Locations


Teostra Combat Info

  • Elemental damages: mhw-fire-damageFire, Can Induce Burn, can induce Blastblight
  • Weaknesses mhw-water-elemental-damageWater and mhw-ice-damageIce
  • Mildly susceptible to mhw-poison-status-effect Poison and stun Stun
  • Hunters should aim for the head, its weakest spot. Other weakspots are the wings and tail
  • Since this is an agile monster, the belly area is the easiest to position oneself in.
  • Weakness sign: limping, Returns back to volcano area when near death.
  • The black scale dust Teostra scatters will spread over a wide area until it finally explodes. Keep an eye on that, as well as the flames it occasionally shields itself in, and aim to stagger it with weapons possessing Elderseal capabilities
  • At some points in the fight, Teostra will become covered in flames around its body. After some time he will take to the skies and release an explosion. The explosion covers a great distance so run away once he begins to fly up or utilize a 'flash pod' to knock him to the ground. You can also utilize crystalburst to interrupt his supernova if you're fighting him in the Elder's Recess.

      Is it normal that hitting anywhere beside his head with ice bullets does 0 dmg? I noticed other arch tempered also only takes dmg at weak point, is this because of defense scaling or elemental bullets have some special mechanics?

        Lol......................................he can put you in the long stun animation just by walking into you aka flinching. Here I thought I've seen it all in terms of Capcoms silly choices with their monsters.

          Lesson learned 1/5 of 4 player random coop will succeed. Solo clear took 35 min but success. On clear, 4 player takes 15 min but on fail, 3 cart in 7-12 min.

            Please don't hate me for doing this, but I used a mod that shows monster HP and Attack Names and Their body part status, rage, poison, exhaustion etc. While fighting AT teostra I noticed that around the time he was about to die, about three sword hits left, he did a move called teostra barrier and when I was about to kill him, his HP stayed at 1, no matter how much damage I did, his HP stays at one. He has this skill similar to guts that prevents his HP from going down to zero when he's about to die.

              The easiest boss so far for me, not sure what problems do yo uguys have. Fireproof mantle and just stay right in front of his head, super easy. His nova deals super low damadge as wll, and its easy t dodge... i mean i guess can be hard with no food but lol....

                  honestly i hate this guy alot less than the wind elder dragon only because i deal good damage with holy sabers and alot of equipment have good fire res. his big charge into explosion is insane though its usually dodgeable sometimes you can get stunned for the entire charge duration if ur dumb like me and took no stun res

                      i'm not sure about the health cause if that's true it would take from 63 to 87 (over a hundred damage) hits to kill it.

                        I had someone join in about 30-45 seconds or so before the end and got the damage card. I did 8102 damage that fight, just as a note i think he has about 8k hp solo.

                          For me, the toughest out of the 3 final elder dragons. The fireblight, the constant moving, and the explosions and other stuff in his nest just throw you away and make it 10 times more hard. Cool as hell though, probably the coolest monster in the game personally. I beat him doing the 1 hit and run tactic.

                            Just beat him today, new to the hunter games. Took 2 tries, Nergal gouge, some random armor for buffs and fire resist, Wasn't ultra hard. Bring cool drinks or whatever they're called. Hit the stomach and legs, head when able. When he uses the supernova, run if possible, if not, superman dive like with Nerg. I failed the first time from being reckless and not having cool drinks. Other than that, it wasn't too hard. Some of its fire attack are devastating though, and from my experience he only used the nova 3 times after using the attack that deals fire damage from his feet. I really liked this fight. 10/10 would do again, even if a bit easy (at least to me)
