Ashen Winds World Event
Four new Skeleton Lords known as the Ashen Lords of Captain Flameheart enter the Sea of Thieves. They are being summoned as a part of a new Ashen Winds ritual signified by a massive fiery Tornado on the horizon. These Lords have various Fire based attacks, with the event rewarding players with various Devil's Roar variants of Treasure items as well as the new Ashen Winds Skull.
Ashen Winds Skull
The new World Event also sees the introduction of a new Bounty Skull belonging to the Ashen Lords - the Ashen Winds Skull. This Skull can either be sold to the Order of Souls or Reaper's Bones for rewards, or used as a Flamethrower type weapon instead, which causes Fires in front of it. The Skull's crystals have a limited charge to them. Once the charge is depleted, the Skull can no longer be used and fetches a much lower reward.
