Reach HR 40
Teostra is unlocked by reaching HR 40 after defeating Kushala Daora, where the Urgent Quest The Emperor of Flame will appear.
Bold are the recommended Weapon Type and Elemental Damage.
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.

Get as Far Away as Possible During Supernova
Weaken Supernova By Breaking Teostra's Horns
Avoid the Blast Orbs
Know Teostra's Different Armor States
Ranged Attacks Don't Work Against Super Flame Armor
Beware of the Passive Heat Damage
Remove Flame Armor by Knocking Teostra 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 get away!
|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 replaced with an increasing red health bar. 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.
In addition to its attacks in High Rank quests, Teostra uses the following attacks in Master Rank.
|Swipe and Spin Combo||A combo of two delayed claw swipes accompanied by blast orbs, and a rapid spinning attack.|
|Retreating Explosion||Teostra retreats backwards, laying down a group of blast orbs that it detonates upon landing.|
|Relentless Chase||Teostra relentlessly charges towards the hunter twice, dealing heavy damage on contact.|
|Backblast Pounce Combo||Teostra lets out a blast of fire from its mouth, using the momentum to reposition backward. It performs a quick leap attack immediately afterward.|
|Swipe and Spin Combo Attack Information|
Swipe and Spin Combo: Teostra performs two delayed claw swipes accompanied by a line of blast orbs before finishing the combo with a rapid spin that deals heavy damage.
To avoid this combo, evade to the left or right to dodge Teostra's claw swipes and prepare to evade backward to dodge its spin attack.
|Retreating Explosion Attack Information|
Retreating Explosion: Teostra lays down a group of blast orbs as it retreats backward, detonating them after it lands.
Run away from the radius of the blast orbs or quickly close the gap between you and Teostra to avoid this attack.
|Relentless Chase Attack Information|
Relentless Chase: Teostra chases after the hunter, relentlessly charging toward them and dealing heavy damage on contact. This attack occurs twice in a row.
Evade perpendicular to the path of Teostra's charge to easily avoid this attack.
|Backblast Pounce Combo Attack Information|
Backblast Pounce Combo: Teostra lets out a blast of fire from its mouth, using the momentum to reposition backward. Immediately afterward, it quickly leaps toward the hunter, damaging them on contact.
To avoid this combo, move away from Teostra's telegraphed backblast and prepare to immediately evade to the left or right to dodge the follow-up pounce.
Teostra uses the following attacks in High Rank quests.
|Claw Blast||A claw attack that scatters blast orbs. Teostra can ignite the orbs and hit anything nearby.|
|Leaping Attack||Teostra quickly leaps towards unsuspecting hunters. If Teostra have a flame armor, the leap has an explosion effect.|
|Divebomb||Teostra scatters blast orbs on the ground then flies toward a direction. Afterward, it will turn back and divebomb towards all the blast orbs, igniting them as Teostra lands.|
|Line Explosion||Teostra scatters blast orbs in a straight line then igniting them after a short while.|
|Ring Explosion||Teostra scatters blast orbs around him in a circle then igniting them after a short while.|
|Flamethrower Attacks||Teostra will fire flamethrowers in different ways. Be careful out there!|
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 executes flamethrower attacks that proc fireblight against hunters. It has three variations detailed below:
|Flamethrower Attack Variations|
Grounded Sweeping Flamethrower: Teostra will sweep a flame breath attack from side to side while stationary. Evade this attack at all costs by rolling sideways continuously!
Aerial Sweeping Flamethrower: 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!
Hi-Pressure Flamethrower: 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!
|Circular Ground Explosion Attack Information|
Circular Ground Explosion: 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!
|The Supernova Attack Information|
The Supernova: 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!
