A straight line wind beam attack that can throw a hunter upwards then followed up with a wind ball while you are airborne. This can instantly cart a hunter from full health and the only way to evade is to Wirefall (zL + B) before the wind ball hits!
Kushala is invulnerable with the Black Wind Aura
Black Wind Aura disappears when poisoned
Leave on wirebug available to avoid the instant death combo
Use armor pieces with Chameleos Blessing
Use Flash Bombs to bring Kushala to the ground!
Kushala Daora will strengthen its metallic body and be invulnerable when the black wind aura is present - save for the head and hind legs. Target those whenever the aura is there!
Kushala's powerful black wind aura gets negated when Kushala is poisoned - and with it the invulnerability. You can use a variety of tools and weapons like the Poison Kunais from the Supply Box and Chameleos weapons against it!
Kushala's instant death combo (Wind Beam of Death) can catch hunters off-guard and the only way to mitigate this is to wirefall! Whenever you see yourself in this tricky situation, wirefall away from the black wind ball that follows!
Each of the new Elder Dragon armors are designed to combat other Elder Dragons.
Chameleos Blessing is a new armor skill obtained by equipping 4 pieces of Mizuha Armor from Chameleos that can negate all Wind Pressure and extend poison duration against a monster. This is a very hard counter against Kushala Daora so consider using this if you're having a hard time!
Kushala Daora loves to fly and attack while airborne - so use Flash Bombs to ground the Elder Dragon! Kushala builds resistance against it though so make sure every Flash Bombs count!
