Teostra is one of the many new Elder Dragons added to Monster Hunter Rise in the first Free Title update released last April 28, 2021. Don't forget to update your copy of Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) to be able to fight Teostra!
Teostra is unlocked by reaching HR40 in the Hub. When you reach HR40, the Urgent Quest The Emperor of Flame will unlock giving you the ability to take on Teostra in the Lava Caverns!
Higher numbers indicate higher potential damage to the monster.
|・The black scale dust a Teostra scatters will spread over a wide area until it finally explodes; however reports claim that damaging the elder dragon's head can prevent the larger explosions. Push on the attack when it's fully enveloped in flames or scale dust to stun it, suppressing whichever it was accumulating.|

|Leaping Attack||Teostra quickly leaps towards unsuspecting hunters. If Teostra have a flame armor, the leap has an explosion effect.|

Teostra does this while in the Super Flame Armor state.
|Circular Ground Explosion
|Teostra ignites a circular area in front of him, dealing massive damage to anyone inside the radius.
Teostra does this while in the Super Flame Armor state.
|Considered as Teostra's ultimate move, The Supernova causes a huge explosion in a huge sphere originating from Teostra. Anything caught in the radius has a chance to be one-hit KO'd.
Teostra does this while in the Super Flame Armor state and will remove all kinds of flame armor afterwards.
Teostra scatters blast orbs by swinging his claw then igniting them after a short while. Evade backward or in any direction away from the blast orbs!
A quick leaping attack towards a hunter. If Teostra has a flame armor on, this move deals fireblight as Teostra lands.
Teostra scatters blast orbs on the ground then flies in a certain direction. It will then turn around and dive towards the orbs, igniting them as he drags his mane on the ground! Keep distance whenever you see him fly away!
Teostra lines up blast orbs in a line then igniting them aster a very short while. Evade sideways whenever you see Teostra them up!
Teostra scatters blast orbs around his body then igniting them after a very short while. Evade backward whenever you see Teostra priming the orbs!
Teostra executes flamethrower attacks that proc fireblight against hunters. It has three variations detailed below:
Teostra will sweep a flame breath attack from side to side while stationary. Evade this attack at all costs by rolling sideways continuously!
Another flamethrower variation where Teostra flies above and sweeps a flame breath attack while moving forward. Evade to the side when you see him do this!
A very short range but powerful flame breath attack that sees any hunter in front of Teostra receive significant damage. Evade sideways when you are near Teostra's head!
A mini-Supernova that Teostra ignites in front of him. Anything caught in the radius will get fireblight and receive significant damage. Emergency Evade or counterattack at the moment of the explosion!
A very dangerous and powerful move where Teostra releases all his energy in a huge, wide explosion. Anyone in the radius can be carted. Roll as far as possible from Teostra or execute an Emergency Evade when you see Teostra charging this up!
Get as far away as possible during a Supernova
Supernova weakens by breaking Teostra's horn
Avoid the blast orbs
Know the different armor states of Teostra
Ranged attacks don't work when in Super Flame Armor state
Beware of the passive heat damage when you're near Teostra
Remove flame armor from Teostra by knocking it down
Use armor pieces with Kushala Blessing
Increase your fire resistance
Teostra's Supernova can cart any hunter caught in the radius so we suggest rolling or Wiredashing until you are away from Teostra. You may also opt to execute an emergency evade if you think that it is too late to getaway!
|Supernova with the Horns Broken||Supernova with the Horns Not Broken|
The radius of the Supernova decreases when you break Teostra's horn. This gives you an easier time trying to get away from Teostra once it explodes in a Supernova!
The blast orbs scattered by Teostra are where all explosions happen. Avoid these areas because Teostra can ignite them anytime!
Teostra has different armor states in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) and can give Teostra different characteristics. He can enter both armor stages at any point in the hunt - Teostra can even enter the Super Flame Armor State from the start!
Characterized by dust forming on the body of Teostra, this is the second-level armor state where most of Teostra's move can cause an explosion. Be extra careful because Teostra is very aggressive and volatile in this state!
This highest Teostra armor state is characterized by flames hovering all over Teostra's body. While in this state, ranged attacks on its body and wings will be nullified - save for the head. It is in this state that Teostra can use the Supernova at any time so get ready!
When Teostra is in the Super Flame Armor State, any hunter near it will experience passive heat damage denoted by a decreasing green health bar and increasing red. Keep an eye out on your health bar when you fight near Teostra all the time or invest on the armor skill Recovery Speed!
By knocking down Teostra, you can remove any armor that is applied to its body. There is a higher chance to execute this by focusing on Teostra's head at all times.
Each of the new Elder Dragon armors is designed to combat other Elder Dragons.
Kushala Blessing is a new armor skill obtained by equipping Kushala Armor from Kushala Daora that can increase the power of ice and water attacks as well as nullify heat damage. This is a very hard counter against Teostra so consider using this if you're having a hard time!
Teostra can deal fireblight so we recommend armors that has Fire Resistance or use Fire Res Jewels decorations. This helps in defending yourself from the pesky fireblight that Teostra gives all the time.
