Ignifer is used to light fires. The first time you use it will be to ignite a brazier in the center of a room to continue through the lift puzzle. Along with igniting braziers, Ignifer can be used to stun enemies. Hitting an enemy with Ignifer will cause them to panic for a brief moment. Upgrading your tools can also lead to Ignifers having the potential to kill. Finally, you can use Ignifer to ignite tar that you find on the ground. Remember, fire is important to keep the rats away and to keep yourself safe.
