Arch Tempered Teostra - Tips and Tricks
Flash Pods Only Work 4 Times With AT Teostra
The Arch Tempered Teostra can only be brought down by Flash Pods by up to 4 times. Make sure to keep count and use it sparingly. The best time to use Flash Pods is during its Supernova move or to keep it in the area.
Run Away Or Flash Pod Teostra During Supernova
When the AT Teostra flies up and seems to be charging up an attack, it'll be doing the very powerful Supernova move. Run away, use a Farcaster, or toss a Flash Pod in its face to avoid getting hit by huge damage.
Fire Breath Has Longer Range Than Regular Teostra
The Arch Tempered Teostra also does a fire breath attack that fans out in front of it. However, this attack will have a longer range and will last longer, making it hard to avoid. Make sure to move to its back or side to keep safe.
Utilize Turf War With Other Elder Dragons
The Arch Tempered Teostra quest will also spawn another Elder Dragon. Be sure to utilize the Turf War as this will do great damage to the Teostra.
Use Cool Drinks & Fireproof Mantle To Lessen Fire Damage
Cool Drinks & using a Fireproof Mantle can save your life in a Teostra fight. These will lessen fire damage, prevent you from getting hit too hard by fire breath attacks, and more.

Charged Fire Breath Has Forward Range
When the AT Teostra rears back up and is covered blast powder, it'll do a charged fire breath that will cause explosions in front of it. When this happens, run to its side or back to avoid the heavy damage.
Fire Breath Has Longer Range
