1.1) Biography [BIOG]

The Metal Tempest - Kushala Daora

A Metal plated dragon known as the tempest of wind. It is said that if Kushala Daora is poisoned, its wind abilities decrease. Eyewitnesses report violent storms alongside the dragon, and its wide range means towns may be attacked.

Poisoning: If you poison Kushala, his wind aura will dissappear for the time it is poisoned. If you manage to flinch it on his head during this time, his aura is gone until it does a non-rage scream. (Remember: his Aura dissapears fully when his horn is broken)

Weaknesses: Thunder, Dragon, Special (Par, Slp, Pos. Mostly Poison) Area's fought: Mountain: 6, 7, 8. Rarely at: 1, 2 Jungle: 2, 3, 4. Rarely at: 7, 8 Town: 3, 4

As all dragons, Kushala flies away (repel) when weakened enough after 25 minutes of fighting. Damage carry-over: you don't have to slay an Elder Dragon in one fight. If you manage to repel a Dragon, his damage will stay at all battles. Even if you die 3 times, or the time runs out, damage carries over.

1.2) Unlocking Kushala [ULKS]

You may be trampling your feet to fight Kushala, but, when do you unlock it? There are 3 different level Kushala's: -Village - 4* - Just get to the 4* quests, the quest is the last one. If it isn't there, do a couple hunting or slaying quests. He will show up.

-Guild - 5* - Repel or slay the Red Lao Shan Lung. You first need to unlock Lao. To do this, complete all the 3-4* guide quests. Lao will always be avaible after that.

-G-Class - 8* - Complete all 6-7* guide quests.

2) Attacks [ATTK]

Ground Attacks -Charge: Runs towards you. Long range, medium damage -Wind Blow: Blows a tunnel-like wind shot, which will freeze you (mountains) or send you flying (jungle, town). Long range, medium damage. -Claw Slash: Wildly slashes to his left or tight side, lies were you are. Short range, low damage.

Sky Attacks -Dive: Dives towards you. Long range, medium-high damage. -Grip Attack (med): Moves towards you while slashing at the ground. Medium range, medium damage. -Wind Blow: Same as the Ground version. Long range, medium damage. -Charge-up Wind Blow: Does more damage than the normal wind blow. freezes you (mountains) or sends you flying. Long range, high damage. -Triple Shot: firstly charges, then blows 3 shot which will explode on ground-impact. freezes you (mountains) or sends you flying. Short range, medium damage. -Arial Wind Beam: Continues blows wind while moving forwards. freezes you (mountains) or sends you flying. Medium range, high damage -Circling Arial Wind Beam: Same as the Arial Wind Beam, but circling around 360 degrees. freezes you (mountains) or sends you flying. Medium range, high damage -Tail Swipe: Moves slowly, stops for a second and then swoops his tail. Usually done when under Kushala. Close range, low damage. -Grip Attack (close): same as the other Grip Attack, but only used when blown away by his wind aura in the sky. Kushala then tries to grab you. Close range, medium damage.

Manuervers: Ground: -Back Jump: Jumps back quite a distance

Sky: -Quarter Circle Turn: this is a hard to explain manuerve. I show it in a drawing. http://i9.tinypic.com/8aelkbo.jpg

As you can see, Kushala performs much better in the sky. It might take a while before you know his air based moveset.

3.1) Recommend Items - Blademaster [RIBM]

10× Potion 5× Mega Potion 3× Thawing Agent (in mountains) 5× Lighting Rod (optional, Jungle) 2-4× Whetstones (relies on the weapon's sharpness, just take as much Whetstones as you want) 3/4× Paintball (if you don’t have Psychic Vision) Flash Bombs (optional, for if it hovers)

3.2) Recommend Items - Bow [RIBO]

10× Potion 5× Mega Potion 3× Thawing Agent (in mountains) 5× Lighting Rod (optional, Jungle) 3/4× Paintball (if you don’t have Psychic Vision) 50× Power Coating (only use when Aura is deactivated) 20× Poison Coating Flash Bombs (optional, for if it hovers)

4.1) Recommend Equipment - Blademaster [REPB]

Defence: 250

Skills: Dragon Windpress - +20 windpress, gives full protection to Wind Aura. Diablos armor gives it. Earplug - +10 HearProtection, gives protection to screams and other large sounds - Tigrex or Rathalos Soul armour gives it

For advanced ones: ESP - +10 Fencing, anti-bouncing - Death Stench S gives is (This could be very usefull when attacking the wings or just when you attack at the wrong moment) a note on the Jewels - you need a Rathalos plate for +1 Fenching. Spending 10 Los plates is not a good idea, so i recommend armor for it.

Recommend Weapons: Tachi's: Devil Slicer Wyvern Blade "Leaf"

Greatsword: Khezu Shock Sword Ravager Blade+

Hammer: Great Nova Anvil Hammer

Hunting Horn: Khezu Horn+ War Drum+

Lance: Thunder Spear Venom Lance

Gunlance: Grand Slam

Sword and Shield: Thunderbane Upper Battleaxe

Dual Blades: Kirin Bolts You could use some high raw Duals, like the Raven Tessen

Note on Lances and Gunlances: I can suggest the weapons if you're planning to use them, but i don't recommend using them. Kushala is way to fast

4.2) Recommend Equipment - Bow [REBO]

Defense: 175

Skills: Runner - +10 Stamina, slows down the stamina bar when running/charging - full Remobra with some Stamina jewels or a Shogun waist gives it (bow charges are used alot) Earplug - +10 HearProtection, gives protection to screams and other large sounds - Tigrex or Rathalos Soul armour gives it (rarely used, gunners mostly are enough away to be unafected by a small scream)

Recommend weapon(s): Sonic Bow II Dragon Bow Halo

5.1) Battle Tactics - Blademaster [BTTB]

As soon as you encounter Kushala, focus on his head and tail.

Head Tactics - Attack his head a couple of times (light weapons) or one time (heavy weapons) after he blows wind on the ground - [img]http://i9.tinypic.com/6jmdjkg.jpg[/img]

Another technique is when Kushala jumps backwards. He growls which will make him attackable.

Tip: if its horn is broken, his wind aura will disappear. so focus on it until you break it. After you broke it, attack freely. I still recommend his head, ofcourse.

Wing Tactic: as you may know, almost every sharpness bounces of his wings. The good thing, you don't have to lower his health to break it. needs 2 flinches. When broken, you see Kushala's new skin (which is Silver colored)

Tail tactics – When he is hovering, you can easily attack its feet/tail, instead if using Flash Bombs. Just beware of his turn attack (Kushala turns around and throw you away - see the Attacks section for more information).

A note on breaking the horn and cutting the tail: These breakables are not breakable unti you do 25% total damage on Kushala. Attacking his head between 75%-100% is a major case. Mainly because of the fact you don't know how much HP a monster has, unless you're using a cheat device such as CWCheat.

5.2) Battle Tactics - Bow [BTBO]

Moments when to charge-up fully: Whenever Kushala did a Wind Shot or a charge. Moments when not to Charge-up fully: Sky. Kushala's attacks are unpredictable, mainly because of the number of attacks. You could do it, but then you'll risk it.

Arrows shot when the wind aura is active, result in the arrows recoil back to you. When its aura is active, his head, tail-point and wing-points are NOT protected by its aura.

Tip: Gunners and Bowers can do something blademasters can't with weapons. Taking Kushala out the sky. By flinching it on it's head, Kushala drops down. The bad part is that he goes in hover mode most of the time. An easy way to do this fast. See how many shots it takes to flinch Kushala with your bow. take for example 4 shots. So, shoot 3 times on it's head. then attack random parts except his head. when it goes in hover mode, you can take it down in one shot on his head.
