FFVIII Thunderstorm

Thunder Storm in Final Fantasy VIII.

Thunderstorm (サンダーストーム, Sandā Sutōmu?), also known as Thunder Storm and Thunder, is a recurring attack in the Final Fantasy series. It is usually an attack usable by various summons and often does Lightning-elemental damage, but sometimes does Ice-elemental damage as well.

AppearancesEdit

Thunderstorm is an ability used by Ramuh. It does Lightning-elemental damage to all enemies.

Thunderstorm is a Band ability usable by combining Rydia's Black Magic command with Palom's. It does dual Ice and Lightning-elemental damage to all enemies.

Final Fantasy VEdit

Thunderstorm, also known as Thunder in the Anthology release, is the attack of the summon Syldra. It does Wind-elemental damage to all enemies.

Final Fantasy VIIIEdit

Thunder Storm is the attack of Quezacotl. It does Lightning-elemental damage to all enemies. Quezacotl's summon time is 13.3s, which, according to the Final Fantasy VIII Ultimania, allows the player to boost its damage to around 180% of normal damage using a regular PlayStation controller.

Its damage is calculated as follows:[1]

Damage = 60 * Level / 10 + 44
Damage = Damage * (265 - TargetSpr) / 8
Damage = Damage * 44 / 256
Damage = Damage * Boost / 100
Damage = Damage * (100 + SummonMagBonus) / 100
Damage = Damage * (900 - ElemDef) / 100:

Elemental Defense starts at 800 (0%), 900 nullifies damage and 1000 absorbs it. If an enemy is shown to be weak against an element, its Elemental Defense is below 800. If damage becomes negative (due to high Elemental Defense), the target is healed by that amount.

Final Fantasy XIEdit

There are two abilities known as Thunderstorm in Final Fantasy XI.

Blood Pact: RageEdit

Final Fantasy XI Spell
Thunderstorm
MP: 182
Effect: Deals massive Lightning magic damage.
Duration: Instant
Casting Time: Instant
Recast Time: 1 min
Magic Type: Blood Pact: Rage
Element: Lightning
Jobs: Ramuh 75 (Merit Points)

Thunderstorm is a Merit Blood Pact: Rage for Ramuh, available to Summoners levels 75 and above who have purchased the ability using Merit Points. It deals massive Lightning damage to a single target, and its damage is increased by Ramuh's current TP. Placing additional merits in Thunderstorm grants a 40 TP bonus when to its power when used.

White MagicEdit

Final Fantasy XI Spell
Thunderstorm
MP: 30
Effect: Grants the target party member the effects of Thundery weather.
Duration: 3 minutes
Casting Time: 3 seconds
Recast Time: 15 seconds
Magic Type: Enhancing Magic
Element: Lightning
Jobs: SCH 51

The White Magic spell known as Thunderstorm is an enhancing spell granting the target the bonuses of lightning weather.

  • Provides the single lightning weather effect, not the double lightning weather effect. This will stack if the zone currently has thundery weather, giving effect of double lightning weather. This will have no effect during a true thunderstorm (double lightning weather).
  • Thundery weather has a chance (33% to 50%) to give Lightning spells a 10% power boost and a corresponding penalty to Water spells. If the Rairin Obi is equipped, the weather bonus will always be applied.
  • Ionohelix will always gain the full effect of this weather.
  • If the caster has the Merit Job Trait Stormsurge, then this spell will also increase the target's DEX by +3 (to a maximum of +7 with full merits).
