The Veering Wind is a craftable Pre-Hardmode spell tome that is an alternative to the Frost Bolt. When used with its primary fire (left-click), it fires an even ring of 12 fast air waves which travel outwards from the player and deals heavy knockback. When used with its secondary fire (right-click), frost waves are fired instead with 20% knockback, 25% velocity, and 50% attack speed of the air waves. Both the air and frost waves pierce twice and deal 50% damage on the second hit. The frost waves inflict Frostburn and Glacial State debuffs.

Its best modifier is Mythical.

These history sections are still a work-in-progress, and may not yet contain changes relevant to the current version of the Calamity Mod.
    • Buffed damage from 15 to 19 and left click mana cost from 20 to 14, but nerfed right click mana cost from 20 to 28.
    • Now fires 12 projectiles per use instead of 24. Air waves and frost waves now pierce once instead of infinitely, and deal 50% damage on the second hit.
