Ignis Fatuus is an Creature/Monster in the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Ignis Fatuus is a Foglet.


"Careful sir, a monster prowls the bog. Enter the mist and ye'll never see home again!
--Leslaw, peat digger.

The monster haunting the peat bogs of Velen turned out to be an ancient foglet. These are exceptionally long-lived creatures - some have even dwelt on this earth for over two hundred years, growing stronger and stronger all the while. Blows dealt by foglets of such an age carry so much power blocking them is out of the question. These foglets possess the ability to move extremely quickly, and not even Yrden can slow them down. Furthermore, they can meld completely into the mist, then suddenly rematerialize to strike from behind. Wearing heavy armor or making good use of the Quen Sign is highly recommended.

This ancient foglet proved particularly adept in the art of forming illusions. Only a professional monster slayer skilled with Signs and swords could best such a foe. Luckily, Geralt fit that description perfectly."

      This happened for me 2x I would stand at the edge of the fog a little up the ramp and constantly use ignis. It hit him in the middle of the fog even though I was nowhere close.

      • Using Axii will reveal it from its ethereal (invisible) form and stun it for a few second. Using this and Rage Management skill makes you stun-lock it to its demise. Use Axii, land a three hit combo, back-step, use Axii, repeat (Also, you can drink Tawny Owl potion to increase Stamina recovery rate). Tested on Death March difficulty.
