Patch 1.19 will see the introduction of new battle content featuring the primal Ifrit.
Read on for the red-hot details.
As has been announced in earlier Letters from the Producer, patch 1.19 will usher in all-new battle content pitting adventurers against Ifrit, the primal of fire. Two encounters will be implemented: a standard battle for level 30 light parties (four members) and a hard mode designed with level 50 full parties (eight members) in mind. Both will take the form of a quest, and adventurers will be able to enjoy the unfolding story leading up to the fiery confrontation with the primal.
Known also as the Lord of the Inferno, Ifrit is dreaded as a demon spawned of the seven hells by those who keep faith in the Twelve. Of all the enlightened peoples of Eorzea, Ul’dahns in particular have cause to fear the primal’s wrath, owing to the bad blood between them and the Amalj’aa that has formed over generations of territorial feuds. Tales hold that in the mere act of exhalation, Ifrit produces heat of such torridity as to reduce iron to pools of white-hot liquid.
Previously released video footage featuring patch 1.19 content has been included below for the viewing pleasure of those who came in late.
