Ice is generally one of the harder-hitting and last-learned elements of any tier, superseded only by Thunder. The spell can be purchased from vendors in Lower Jeuno and Aht Urhgan Whitegate for 39,368 gil, and it may also be found as loot on certain Black Mage-type Skeletons.
Blizzard III appears in Final Fantasy XIV as a Thaumaturge ability available at level 38. The ability deals ice-elemental damage to a single target with the potency of 240. When the spell is cast, it grants the Umbral Ice effect for 10 seconds and removes Astral Fire. Once the player learns Magic and Mend II at level 40, Blizzard III will automatically give the player the Umbral Ice III buff.
At the game's release, Blizzard III had a damage potency of 220. After the release of patch 2.3, Blizzard III had its damage potency raised to 240.
In the Japanese version of the game, Blizzard III is called Blizzaga.
In addition, the Manor Jester has access to the Void Blizzard III (ヴォイド・ブリザガ, Boido Burizaga?, lit. Void Blizzaga) spell in battle.
