Warden Chi is an Ashen variety of Skeleton Lord boss in Sea of Thieves. She is one of the four Ashen Lords to serve under Captain Flameheart. She can be encountered and battled during the Ashen Winds World Event. When defeated, Warden Chi drops an Ashen Winds Skull and around 15 Devil's Roar Treasure items.


Very little is known of Flameheart and his Ashen Lords. According to Duke, Warden Chi was Flameheart's prison warden. She kept watch over everyone who Flameheart wanted to keep alive, torturing them, but making sure not to kill anyone. Warden Chi is the only Ashen Lord to bear the insignia of the Ashen Dragon on her clothes.


Warden Chi can be fought as one of the four Ashen Lords during the Ashen Winds World Event. The Ashen Winds World Event is signified by a red fiery Tornado in the skies and can appear at the following locations:


Warden Chi has the same moveset as all Ashen Lords with the major difference being her taunts signalling the attacks.

  • Melee Attack - The most basic out of all the attacks, the Ashen Lords will strike any players who get too close to them by causing damage and knocking them back.
  • Fire Breath - The Lord tries to distance nearby players by spewing flames out of their mouth akin to a flamethrower. Any players inside the breath attack take heavy damage. This attack also sets the Lord on fire, dealing fire damage all around them.
  • Lunge Attack - The Lord attempts to close the distance between them and the player by jumping towards them, dealing damage and knocking them back when hit.
  • Boulder Throw - There are two versions of this attack: a small quickly thrown rock or a larger boulder that can reach remarkable distances. The smaller rock throws do not have voice lines. The larger boulders deal considerable damage and set hit players on fire. It seems that both of these attacks can be cancelled with damage.
  • Summon Skeletons - The Lord summons a handful of Ashen Skeletons to fight for them. The Lord seems to be able to spawn two groups of skeletons. These skeletons are relatively weak and can easily be taken out with a cutlass lunge. The summoned skeletons can spawn with no weapons, a cutlass, blunderbuss or flintlock.
  • Ash Cloud - The Lord will cast a thick and wide cloud of Ash that drastically lowers visibility around the Lord and outside. Everything inside the Ash Cloud will have an auditory echo to it.
  • Shockwave - The Lords gain access to this attack during the second phase. They will gather strength and pound the ground with a fiery blast, setting any nearby players on fire, dealing heavy damage and sending them flying in the air. The closer players are to the Lord, the more damage this attack will deal. Since players are thrown high in the air, they will also receive fall damage unless they have their back to a wall or are in water. Unlike the Skeleton Lord shockwave attack, this attack also damages the masts, capstan and wheel of any nearby ships.
  • Volcanic Eruption - The Lords gain access to this attack during the final phase. They will kneel and summon a volcanic eruption out of the sky, while also using the Fire Breath attack the whole time. Making any close attacks risky. During this attack, like under a Volcanic eruption, all the surrounding water will become superheated, geysers will appear on the Island itself and volcanic Rocks will fly from the skies, often instantly killing any hit players. This attack is also devastating to any nearby ships.
