"A simple, makeshift torch made from an oily rag wrapped around the end of a stick.

Torches such as these are the easiest way to illuminate one's surroundings, but their use comes at the cost of occupying a hand that would otherwise be free.

Can be used as a rudimentary weapon to inflict fire damage. It possesses no Skill, being an ordinary, basic tool."

Location/Where to Find

 

Hints and Tips:

  • Holding the guard button with the torch in the left hand will raise the torch and increase its brightness.
  • Equipping the torch while afflicted wih leeches destroys them, preventing further bleed build up.
  • The torch cannot perform backstabs, ripostes or plunging attacks.
  • Upgrades with regular Titanite.
  • CANNOT be infused or buffed

      One-handed pike attacks are extremely slow. However, if you hold L1 with the torch on the offhand, pike R1s become godly fast... even faster than the regular spear.

          I believe that having the torch equipped while frostbitten will decrease the duration of the effect. This needs to be tested, of course.

            Using the torch when afflicted by blood loss accumulation from the maggots in the Cathedral of the Deep will destroy the maggots on you, stopping blood loss accumulation
