Primals in FFXIV: ARR
Like most other Final Fantasy games to date, FFXIV: A Realm Reborn includes Primals. For those that don’t already know, the Primals are powerful, magical creatures that are worshiped and summoned by the beast tribes. Each beast tribe has its own Primal that it can summon. Most Primals are the equivalent of a summon found in one of the Final Fantasy games.
Right now there are a total of 9 different Primals that have been confirmed in FFXIV: ARR. These are:
- Good King Moggle Mog XII
Each Primal is met in battle by players as a boss fight. Each one is fought during specific quests and at different player levels throughout the game. Below is a summary of each Primal that includes more details.

Bahamut is the Primal of the Dragons. He is also often considered the most powerful summon of all. Bahamut used to be held captive in Dalamund but managed to break free. The gods of Eorzea, The Twelve, and the Circle of Knowing all try to recapture the beast but before being able to finish the spell that would bind the elder dragon to its prison Bahamut broke away.
Not a lot is known about what part Bahamut will play in A Realm Reborn but it has been confirmed that he will play a role in an end-game raid named The Labyrinth of Bahamut which will be a difficult raid that will support up to 24 players.
Garuda is worshiped and summoned by the Ixal beastmen. She is known as the queen of storms and the empress of birds. She is fought during a boss battle by players at least 2 times during the game. The first fight is for level 40 players while the second is geared toward level 50 players (both require parties).
The quests that yo encounter Garuda in are named In for Garuda’s Wakening (around level 40) and Taming the Tempest (around level 50). The 2nd battle is more difficult and will require players to manage survivability well.
Good King Moggle Mog XII
Killing the Good King also unlocks an achievement called Most Adorable Death Ever.
Ifrit is the Primal of the Amal’jaa beastmen. He is known as the primal of fire and is found within the deserts of Thanalan. He is also fought by players in a boss battle during 2 quests. The first quest Ifrit is encountered in is It Kills with Fire (designed for players around level 25) and the second is Ifrit Bleeds, We Can Kill It (designed for players level 50 and above).
Ifrit is a level 58 boss with 32,767 health. A party of high level players with decent gear can make quick work of this boss fight, even during the harder 2nd quest.
Leviathan is a huge, legendary serpent that is the primal of the Sahagin, which are vile, turtle-like creatures. There isn’t a ton of information about this Primal just yet but we’ll update the page to include more facts such as his origins and game appearances as soon as possible!
Odin is a rather unique Primal in FFXIV: A Realm Reborn due to the fact that he will be a free-roaming boss. Right now there isn’t any info on whether or not he is summoned by a beast tribe, either. The one thing that has been leaked is that Odin will be on a rotation where every time he is defeated he comes back stronger than before and will provide even better loot drops. Odin has been a primal that has appeared in many of the Final Fantasy games.
We will also update Odin’s summary to include facts about his origins, whereabouts, in-game appearances, and more once we have the information.
Shiva is the empress of ice and has been confirmed as a character that will appear as a Primal in FFXIV: ARR. Right now there is no information about which beast tribe she is associated with, where she will appear in-game, or other facts. Once this information is released and/or discovered we will update her description.
This page isn’t fully complete but we’ll fill in the missing details as soon as possible! Also, we will be writing up detailed guides to each of the Primal boss fights to provide tips and strategies to players in the next week or so.
