In Darkfall weather changes and affects players in a real way. Wind will affect sailing ships in naval warfare; it can affect player visibility and so play a strategic part in siege and raid planning. The direction of the wind will also affect how some NPC creatures detect your scent. The wind may also affect the trajectory of projectiles such as arrows. However, winds and weather will not affect the trajectory of spells .
Finally, Darkfall has been said to include a dynamic weather map that players can use to find local weather in different locations in the world
