How to Beat Arch-Tempered Teostra
Arch-Tempered Teostra is a more fearsome version of Tempered Teostra, which is a more fearsome version of Teostra. The only thing special about Arch-Tempered Teostra is that they hit even harder than Tempered Teostra and appears to attack a bit more frequently according to Arekkz Gaming. However it should have the same amount of HP as regular Teostra, just like its tempered counterpart. So you can use many of the same tactics you used when fighting regular Teostra.
Teostra can scatter the area with black powder and also cover itself with it. This powder can ignite when Teostra hits it with a fire attack. Standing in the black powder will induce Blastblight, which causes a damaging explosion on you after some time has passed or upon being hit with a heavy attack. Teostra can also induce burning with its flame attacks. Both Blastblight and burn can be cured by rolling repeatedly on the ground (three times for burn). Burn can also be cured by eating a Nulberry.
The most powerful attack at Teostra’s disposal is its Super Nova attack. Teostra unleashes the attack after glowing for a while. You know it’s coming when he flies into the air and starts charging an aura around it. The only way to get away unscathed is to either dodge at just the right moment or simply run away far enough.
The Fireproof Mantle Specialized Tool is absolutely essential for this fight. It reduces fire damage, nullifies burn and Blastblight, and prevents damage from hot environments for three minutes. It can be acquired by completing the Optional Quest “A Fiery Convergence.” The Temporal Mantle and Vitality Mantle are also very useful for surviving Teostra’s Super Nova attack. Any weapon with Elderseal can remove Teostra’s black powder around its body if you hit it enough times.
It also doesn’t hurt to have level three Fire Resistance armor skill. Not only will you get a ton of resistance to Teostra’s fire attacks but you’ll also get some general defense on top of that. Also be sure to add veggies to your pre-hunt meal for the elemental resistance boost.
