Flash Pods Only Work 4 Times With AT Teostra

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

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

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

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.
