There is a simple wind simulation in the game. Wind can blow into one of four directions, with weak or strong power, or there can be no wind at all. Wind power and direction changes every few minutes. You can figure out the wind power and direction by looking at the leaves that fall of the trees, or by looking at the wind rose at the bottom-left corner. The wind rose by default will appear only when important, meaning for weapons which projectiles are highly influenced by wind, which are mostly primitive weapons. Strong wind can also affect your movement, by making you faster when you walk with wind and slower if you go against it. This effect is minor, but noticeable. Weapons that are heavily affected by it, like bow and crossbow for example, should be used wiselly. Make sure to consider wind when aiming with them.
