Igrexion is the second Raid Level 5 Guardian and you need to be at least 1340 Item Level to enter this Guardian Raid. This Guardian drops Tier 3 Accessories, Upgrade Materials and Ability Stones as well as rare drops including Runes, Engraving Books and Cards. It takes 10% more damage from Fire Element skills and the recommended Combat Items are: HP Potion, Panacea, Sacred Charm and Flare.
This Guardian doesn't have much HP and as long as you deal decent damage you should be able to slay him with plenty of time left. The issue is that he has a lot of hard hitting skills which might one shot squishy classes. In general you should avoid staying in front of Igrexion if you are not a Gunlancer. If Igrexion turns his face towards you, don't run away from him, instead try to run around him. He uses a lot of frontal big Area of Effect(AoE) attacks, which makes running away from him less efficient.
During the entire guardian fight, try to have vision on Igrexion. It is especially useful in the last phase, because you can predict and avoid one-hit skills based on his body movement.

Special Interactions & Patterns
Igrexion has 3 different phases, each attached to a different element: Dark, Earth or Fire. Most of his attacks are modified based on his current phase and add a different debuff on hit.
Dark Counter Stance
Earth: Forwards Jump
Earth: Triple Lightning
Fire: Rising Mountains
Fire: The Grill
In Dark Phase, the Guardian uses a breath attack while charging towards a player. The breath attack hits everyone in a cone-shaped area in front of the Guardian. Dodge towards the side of the Guardian to avoid this attack.
