Beating Elder Dragons - Monster Hunter Freedom 2
Beating Elder Dragons
Note: you cannot trap any elder dragon so donít even try.
Also, the wings and horns can be broken on all these elder dragons and their tails can be cut off (usually when they have low health for the tails).
Chameleos: Use bone armour so you get the ďsteal no effectĒ skill. Stay in close and attack it's sides and rear.
Paint it as soon as you can (it always starts in area 9 in forest and hills). If youíre in the same area as it but canít find it, sprint in different directions, you can see if youíre running towards it by the type of running you character is doing (running odd = wrong way, running normally = you found it!).
Kashala Dora: Use Chameleos armour (dragon wind breaker skill) to negate the effects of the vortex this dragon creates around itís self, allowing you to move in and attack. Try a great sword for this quest.
Run towards the monster just off to one side so itís attacks miss, after it jumps back it always roars as well as after it shoots wind at you, run in and attack itís head. After 3 or 4 attacks to it's head it will fall over, so take advantage and attack. (Guild quest) In the town you can use the dragonator on Kashala, it has a ten minute recharge rate.
In the snowy mountains, avoid all wind attacks at all costs as it will freeze you.
Remember that you can block with the great sword, also donít forget to dodge!
Lunastra: Use Kashala Dora armour to reduce the amount of terrain damage you take from Lunaís aura (nothing can negate it, so this is the best you can get) and increase you health recovery rate. Fighting this monster is a challenge, you will have to learn it's movement patterns, also keep on the move and try to stay to it's sides. If you hear a tinkling sound as it nods it's head (looks like it sneezes), run because the little sparkling fragments explode and deal some serious damage and leave you open for another attack, in most cases causing death.
Teostra: Exactly the same as Lunastra (attacks and all) itís just the male version. It might have slightly different health and attack but it's patterns are the same as the female Lunastra.
Keep moving, be brave and go on the offensive against these monsters, learn their movements and victory will be yours. Also remember my motto: Dodge more die less!
