Despite sharing the name in the English localization of Final Fantasy XIV, the abilities known as Blizzard III in the title are in fact the recurring Blizzaga spell in Japanese.
Blizzard III is a tier 3 elemental spell that deals Ice-based elemental damage to a single target. Like other Blizzard spells, it is generally one of the harder-hitting and last-learned elements of any tier, superseded only by Thunder. It serves as a preferred method of inflicting ice damage to single targets during the level 60 - 80 leveling period for the pure casting jobs that have access to the spell.
blizzard is a severe snowstorm caused by strong sustained winds of at least 56 km/h (35 mph) and lasting for a prolonged period of time – typically three hours or more.A
