Watch out for Black Scales

Teostra will often carpet bomb a wide area with a cloud of black scales which will detonate after some time. You need to avoid these spots to get by unscathed.

Take Cover from the Explosion

Sometimes, Teostra will also cloak itself in flames and then soar high to unleash a supernova. Start backing away once you notice its motion to take flight. Alternatively, you can throw a flash pod or crystalburst to interrupt this attack.

Focus on the Head

Teostra’s achilles’ heel is its head, so keep striking it when it’s vulnerable. You can also channel your attacks on its wings as an alternative. Avoid the front and the tail since it leaves you vulnerable to its fire breath.
