There’s a warm breeze heating up Sea of Thieves today, as the Ashen Winds update is live. Ashen Lords can now appear on islands, throwing flaming rocks and surrounding pirates in darkness. There are a few reasons why you might want to put them back in the ground, but the most important one is that you can turn their skulls into flamethrowers. 

Ashen Lords are emergent enemies that will randomly appear on islands, denoted by a massive firenado. These undead captains have a few tricks up their rotten sleeves, sporting a variety of special abilities, as well as an ultimate ability that summons a meteor storm.
