Teostra Hunting Tips

MH Rise - Teostra Hunting Tips

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

MH Rise - Teostra Get as Far Away as Possible from Teostra During a Supernova

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!

Weaken Supernova By Breaking Teostra's Horns

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!

Avoid the Blast Orbs

The blast orbs scattered by Teostra are where all explosions happen. Avoid these areas because Teostra can ignite them anytime!

Know Teostra's Different Armor States

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!

Flame Dust Armor State

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!

Super Flame Armor 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!

Ranged Attacks Don't Work Against Super Flame Armor

MH Rise - Teostra Super Armor

When in Super Flame Armor State, ranged attacks from Bows, Heavy Bowguns, and Light Bowguns have no effect on Teostra's body. If you're a ranged hunter, aim for the head while in this state!

Beware of the Passive Heat Damage

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!

Remove Flame Armor by Knocking Teostra Down

MH Rise - Tesotra Remove Flame Armor By Knocking Down Teostra

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.

Use Armor Pieces with Kushala Blessing

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!

Kushala Armor Set Skills and Forging Materials

Increase Your Fire Resistance

MH Rise - Teostra Increase Your Fire Resistance

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.
