The promise of the Ashen Winds Skull has beckoned pirates to the fiery-red tornado in the sky since its arrival to the Sea of Thieves! Although the loot is worth the challenge, the Ashen Lord encounter can be punishing for smaller crews. With changes to the Ashen Lord’s health and attacks, every pirate will find the encounter shorter, more frantic, and just as sweat-inducing as before!

Changes to the Ashen Lord

First, the damage pirates can do to an Ashen Lord’s scales to the number of pirates participating in the fight. Smaller crews will find they can complete the encounter much quicker than before, as they can effectively take one down as fast as a crew of four with the extra damage.

Throughout the Ashen Lord encounter, pirates will also find more fruit and a Weapon Chest to switch their loadout and gather more ammo.

The rest of the Ashen Lord changes involve their particular attacks, which we will break down below.

Summon Attack

First, the number of summoned Skeletons is now based on the number of pirates fighting, making it easier for smaller crews to clear a path to the Ashen Lord. In addition, the health of each Skeleton will also scale to the number of pirates.

You will also face fewer Unarmed and Cutlass Skeletons, giving you breathing room as you jump around the battlefield.

Summon

Knockback Attack

The Knockback attack is weaker, causing less damage with a smaller reach for setting pirates on fire.

Fire Breath Attack

You’ll need to be more careful the next time you see an Ashen Lord start the Fire Breath attack. The Fire Breath attack is more effective now with a broader reach and powerful flame.

Fire Breath Attack

Lunge Attack

The Ashen Lord’s mighty Lunge attack will no longer continue to track pirates after the lunge. Instead of curving towards its target, the Ashen Lord will lunge in a straight line making it easier to dodge. And still, if the Ashen Lord manages to hit you, you can expect to take less damage.

Rock and Fire Rock Throw Attack

The Ashen Lord’s arm has started to tire as the Rock and Fire Rock Throw attack now does less damage.

Rock Throw

Melee Attack

While you still want to avoid being near an Ashen Lord, if one does smack you with their Melee attack, it will do less damage.

Roar of the Devil Attack

The infamous Roar of the Devil remains the most devastating Ashen Lord attack. However, the falling rocks will now do less damage than before.
