Map C
  • Speak with Ronta-Onta to obtain quest. If you are positive that you have the required fame but he is not allowing you to undertake this quest, continue speaking with him until his text changes. Once you have received the key item: Tuning fork of fire, you can now safely undertake the quest.
  • Travel to Yhoator Jungle and look for the entrance to Ifrit's Cauldron at (I-6). On the first map of Ifrit's Cauldron head to the Flame Spout at (H-6). Trade it an Ice Cluster to make it recede or wait for it to recede on its own, then continue to (F-6). On the second map (Map B), go to (I-8) to drop down to the seventh map. When you land (Map C) go to the drop at (H-7), then proceed to (G-6) to find the entrance to the Cloister of Flames.
    • Preferably, home point to Ifrit's Cauldron #1. If you don't have it yet, make sure to grab it on the way.
  • Defeat Ifrit Prime and you will receive a key item: Whisper of flames
  • Return to Ronta-Onta with the whisper and he will provide several reward options including the ability to summon Ifrit.


  • Up to 6 party members can enter the arena.
  • Each party member must have their own Tuning fork of fire.
  • Time limit is 30 minutes.
  • You can only select one of the rewards Ronta-Onta offers at any time.
  • You may repeat this quest once per Earth day.
  • You can save yourself a lot of time traveling to the Cloister by using the Mini Fork of Fire given by the quest Trial-Size Trial by Fire. You must be on Summoner as your main job, and obtain the Mini Tuning Fork from Dodmos, trade the fork back to Dodmos, but enter the Protocrystal normally. So long as you do not clear the level 20 version of the BC, you may warp to the Cloister as many times as you wish.
  • You may also choose to retain the whisper in order to complete the requirements for this quest: The Moonlit Path.
