All Teostra Weaknesses

Teostra Elemental Weakness

Teostra's main weakness is water, so be sure to bring any weapons with this element along for the hunt if you have them. If you don't have any water weapons, take an ice tool along instead, as this element is only slightly less effective than water. Thunder and dragon are an excellent third option but offer minor damage compared to water and ice. Do not use fire weapons on Teostra as it nullifies all fire-based attacks.

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
