Frost appeared as an ability in the original Final Fantasy XIV. Learned by Conjurers at rank 16, the ability inflicted ice-elemental damage over time and also reduced ice magic defense to all enemies within an area of effect.
In addition, an upgraded version called Frost II also appeared as an ability. The spell could be learned by Conjurers at rank 36. The ability inflicted ice-elemental damage over time at a higher potency and also reduced the ice magic defense to all enemies within an area of effect.
Both spells shared the same animation.
After the release of patch 1.20, Frost; along with Frost II, became unusable by any class.
