High Frigor is an ice based skill available in Dragon's Dogma.


"An advanced form of Frigor that generates three spires of ice. The last one can serve as a stepping stone."

An advanced version of Frigor.

In Dark Arisen, it becomes Grand Frigor with a suitable Mage's Ring, Mage's Band, or Staff-Bearer's Band equipped.

Usage, damage, and tactics

Spell Spires Ice block
Frigor 1 ~10s
High Frigor 3 ~20s
Grand Frigor 5  ?
  • All frigor spells deals Ice-based Magick damage.
  • These spells have no physical component, and so do not get increased damage from Strength Boosted - as such they are useless against golems.
  • Both, ice spires and explosion from the destroyed ice block have the chance to freeze an enemy.
  • The spires have good knockdown, and will lift smaller enemies into the air.
  • Can be used on Ore deposits and to damage some environments; similar to a Warrior's attack.
  • Damage per 'spire' for all tiers of this spell is very similar, with the central pillar of the high or grand versions having slightly (+10%) more power.
    • The main, central, tallest spire hits twice on formation for all tiers of this spell.

Ice platform

  • The final spire of ice leaves behind a short platform of ice that can be climbed and stood on afore it shatters.
    • Useful to gain access to some locations, including a few Badge of Vows quests.
    • If cast on uneven or uncertain ground the ice platform will not form.
    • The dispersal of the block causes an ice 'explosion' , similarly, if a creature strikes the block it will take damage as the block shatters.
    • Damage from the "explosion" of a struck block is pure magick, and scales with total magick, just like the damage from the ice spires.
    • The higher tier spells have longer lasting blocks, otherwise the properties of the blocks are identical.
    • Platforms of ice can be made on top of each other. This requires casting a second frigor spire on top of the other - usually the spell sigil will not rise to the level of the first block, so taking advantage or adjacent higher ground or a rock is usually necessary. Because of the temporal nature of the blocks the limit seems to be three blocks, even with Wyrmking's Ring to speed casting.

  • Several foes have access to this spell, including Bandit spellcasters, spellcasting Wyrms, and others.
  • Stacking of blocks can be used with a clipping glitch to gain access to the inner area of the Witchwood bypassing the locked door near the resting Golem.
