Icon disambig.svg This article is about the Σύμβολο του Ιγκνι in general. For its attribute tree, see Ιγκνι attribute tree. For its talent descriptions, see Ιγκνι (Ανάπτυξη Χαρακτήρα).

The Σύμβολο του Ιγκνι is a simple magical sign used by witchers. It is comprised of a pyrokinetic burst that can repel and ignite opponents, as well as start fires.

Igni is most likely the second Sign Γκέραλτ "learns" (or re-learns!) over the course of the game. It can first be acquired from the Circle of Inner Fire in the Crypt in the outskirts (see the list of Circles of Elements below for other locations. Its icon is based on the alchemical symbol for Fire. The witcher's skill with the sign is developed through the allocation of talents.


  • To use the Σύμβολο του Ιγκνι, right-click on the desired target.
  • Endurance is used whenever the sign is cast, if the overall level is too low, Γκέραλτ will not be able to cast the sign.

Later on, visiting the Circles of Elements attributed to Igni grants Γκέραλτ the Blessing of Fire.

Circles of Elements[]

Circles of Elements dedicated to the Σύμβολο του Ιγκνι include:


  • Info from Damar's Definitive Guide to Witcher Signs (the original post has now been removed from the forum):
    • Ah, Igni. This is arguably your greatest tool of mass destruction, and when upgraded, it gets so powerful that using it almost feels like cheating. There is a grand total of one enemy type in the whole game that is immune to Igni. Everyone else burns just fine.
    • Unlike Aard, Igni starts out rather mediocre. It consumes a good amount of Endurance, but without upgrades, the damage it inflicts is downright pathetic. Once you buy into it, however, it quickly becomes Γκέραλτ's most devastating attack. It pushes enemies back; it sets them on fire for a nice Damage over Time effect; and it even has a built-in crowd control mechanism that sometimes makes humanoids stop, scream and try to beat out the flames. This is different from the Pain effect, but it does stop your enemies from trying to bash your skull in, if only briefly.

Η Τιμή της Ανεξαρτησίας[]

There are only two circles of elements in "The Price of Neutrality" and only one of them is for Igni. It has no special name.

Igni - in its basic form - releases a gush of flames that wounds opponents with fire. It can also be used to detonate flammable gases emitted by the Dragon's Dream bomb and dead rotfiends.

To activate the sign, press the CTRL key and select Igni; then press Q key to cast it.

Enhanced Σύμβολο του Ιγκνι

Upgrading the Σύμβολο του Ιγκνι with "Enhanced Σύμβολο του Ιγκνι" (in the Magic tree) will increase its damage output, its effective range, grants a chance to set enemies on fire with Incineration, and grants it area of effect damage.


  • Igni is probably derived from the Latin word ignis, fire.
  • In the book series Γκέραλτ not only use Igni during battles, but also in daily life, like fixing a pot to be able to prepare pike soup.
