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 sometime 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.

      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)

          Which element would be more effective against him? Water or Ice? I main bow so, should I use the Legi or Hunter's Proud Bow?

              For all who don't know, Teostra is based off of a mythological creature known as the "Chimera", a winged beast with a lion's head.

                Probably my favorite monster. Kind of disappointed with the armor appearance, but I farmed him for the full set anyway. He wasn't at all hostile on my attempts fighting him. He would just sit there majestically until someone hit him.

                  First off. Whoever put carapace as a common drop, delete your account. Secondly, I think the chest and skirt steak pretty cool

                    If there's one thing I learned fightign this guy, do not fight with any random players. 90% of the time you get some longsword user trying to face-tank his supernova and doesn't learn from it.

                        Killed him solo, first try with a fully upgraded bone longsword. He mostly attacks from the front, with an occasional tail attack. The real thing you need to watch out for is certain fire attacks. Just one brought my health halfway down. As long as you keep flanking him and stay underneath him you should be okay, except for the AOE attacks, though I didn't have much trouble with those, diving away at a decent distance seemed to work in avoiding them, in my experience. Oh, and if you fight him during the main story quest, make sure to stock up on cool drinks! Farcaster is also useful if you need a quick retreat from the AOE damage. Just my take from it, hope it might help nyone struggling with this!

                          Ah, yes, fierce and deadly nature. I used my Water Glaive and flew above this thing and he couldn't do sh!t. Only attacks from the front, he isn't even that much of a threat. Also, keep in mind that I was HR 14 when I did this. I beat him, and I hadn't even done his assigned quest yet. I did his Hellfire Stronghold quest. Really, why is he so easy, it's such a bummer! He's a lion that breathes fire and makes a giant explosion for pete's sake...
