Quest description

Ifrit Bleeds, We Can Kill It Ifrit Bleeds, We Can Kill It is a Quest in Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.


  • Thancred confirms Urianger's words that Ifrit has been summoned once more. Report to the Hall of Flames and speak with Commander Swift to learn how you might arrange a meeting with the Lord of the Inferno.
  • According to Commander Swift, a beastman aetheryte leading to Ifrit's domain, the Bowl of Embers, has been discovered within Zahar'ak in southern Thanalan. Fight your way to the innermost depths of the Amalj'aa stronghold, and attune to the aetheryte.
  • You have attuned yourself to the Zahar'ak aetheryte, and the path to the Bowl of Embers lies wide open. Assemble your stoutest adventuring comrades, and vanquish the Lord of the Inferno.

※The Bowl of Embers (Hard) can be accessed via the Duty Finder.


  • Speak with Swift at the Hall of Flames.
  • Attune to the aetheryte at Zahar'ak.

Thancred Confirmation has just arrived from the Immortal Flames.
Thancred 'Tis as Urianger said, I fear─the Amalj'aa have already summoned Ifrit. A confrontation with the Lord of the Inferno is inevitable.
Thancred I would like nothing more than to lend you my blade, but the Students of Baldesion insisted that I refrain from taking to the field where it concerns primals.
Thancred I know not the workings of it, but it would seem that recent events have left me especially susceptible to tempering.
Thancred As much as I hate missing out on the fun, for everybody's sake, I must sit this one out. Instead I will focus on gathering and analyzing data.
Thancred Now, the Immortal Flames have already conducted a preliminary investigation into Ifrit.
Thancred They may well have information that will be of use to you. Do pay a visit to the Hall of Flames and speak with Commander Swift.
Thancred One last thing before you depart. Doubtless you remember Minfilia's words, but this Ifrit is a far cry from the primal you first defeated. You will want to assemble your most dependable comrades for the mission. Be safe, my friend.
Swift [Player Name]/[Player Name]/ [Player Name], we thank you for coming. The Flame General will be heartened to hear that you have answered the call.
Swift As we have already relayed to the Waking Sands, Ifrit is returned.
Swift For the sake of peace in the region, we humbly request that you vanquish him.
Swift The primal is to be found in his domain, the Bowl of Embers. To get there, you must use the beastman aetheryte found within the depths of Zahar'ak, the Amalj'aa stronghold.
Swift The Amalj'aa have constructed their own Aethernet from salvaged aetheryte shards. This being the case, you should be able to use it without problem.
Swift No doubt you already know this from your fellow Scions, but the present incarnation of Ifrit is far stronger than the last. Facing him with any fewer than seven of your stoutest comrades would be ill-advised.
Swift That is all the intelligence we have to share─the rest is in your hands. I shall pray for your victory and safe return.
Quest complete.
