This article is in need of a few pictures. Perhaps you can help by uploading a picture of Blizzard IV in Final Fantasy XI.

Blizzard IV is an Elemental Black Magic spell from Final Fantasy XI. It is the fourth tier of the single target Blizzard spells.

The Shiva Avatar also has a version usable as a Blood Pact Rage ability for Summoners.

Despite sharing the name in the English localization of Final Fantasy XIV, the abilities known as Blizzard IV in the title are in fact the recurring Blizzaja spell in Japanese.


Blizzard IV's scroll can be purchased in Lower Jeuno for 166,250 gil.

Scrolls of Blizzard IV can also be found as loot on certain high-level Skeleton and Ghost Black Mages, as well as from certain battlefields requiring Imperial Standing to enter.


Like other Blizzard spells, it is generally one of the harder-hitting and last-learned elements of any tier, superseded only by Thunder.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 the preferred method of inflicting ice damage to single targets during the level 70 leveling period for Black Mages, but serves as the strongest means of inflicting the elemental damage for other casters without the aid of Job Points. Its damage output can be increased when used in conjunction with the Black Mage's Tornado spell or the Red Mage's Enaero II spell, which lower the enemy's resistance to ice-elemental damage.

Blizzard IV is available to Black Mages, Geomancers, Red Mages, Scholars (while under the effects of Addendum: Black or Enlightenment).

The Blood Pact version of the ability can used by Shiva at level 60. It deals ice-element magic damage, with its damage output also being based on the summon's TP when casting the spell. It costs 118 MP to cast.
