In order to battle the Primal Ifrit, you will need to reach level 20 and progress your main storyline to the quest "Lord of the Inferno."
Ifrit is a great introduction to the primal battles. This encounter will require party members to be quick at moving out of ground effects, as well as quickly killing an Infernal Fetters.
When Ifrit is pulled, he should be tanked near one of the walls, with the tank's back to the wall. This is so that the Vulcan Burst ability does not knock them back. To avoid unneccessary damage being taken from Incinerate, only the tank should be in front of Ifrit. Everyone should also try to spread out to avoid multiple people being caught in an Eruption. If the cracks appear below you, try to move off of them before the explosion.
When Ifrit gets below 50% health, he will spawn an Infernal Fetters in the center of the area. Both DPS should switch off the boss, use cooldowns, and kill this as quickly as possible. As long as the Infernal Fetters dies and nobody is low on health, you will survive the Hellfire that Ifrit will unleash. This transitions Ifrit into Phase 2.
After using Hellfire, Ifrit starts to use the ability Radiant Plume. This will create either a ground effect around the outer edge of the area or the center of the area. These alternate, so it is easy to predict where the next plume will occur and move ahead of time. Otherwise, the fight does not change from Phase 1.
