Follower Torch is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3. It is part of the Ashes of Ariandel DLC.

An offensive torch used by the Farron Followers. Provides light and doubles as a weapon

Some forms of the Abyss manifest as pus within the body, treated from ancient times with fire.

Skill: Breathe Fire

Spit a combustible fuel across the torch to breathe flame in a front-sweeping motion.

Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Buffed or Infused.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Has the same regular moveset as the Mace.
  • This is the only Torch with a Weapon Art.
  • Combined with it's slow moveset, and having much lower hitstun than most of the other weapons in the game, the R1s of the Follower Torch do not chain together normally. 

Location/Where to Find

  • Can be found after the Snowy Mountain Pass bonfire.  Proceed forward until you reach the giant bell. Run past it to just before the collapsing ridge leading to the Earth Seeker. Instead of taking the ridge down, turn left and continue until you reach a cliff. Drop down to the path below the cliff and proceed right to find a corpse containing the weapon, guarded by a Farron Follower.

      Mastering the WA of this good ol' flame stick will allow you to get some space between your opponents, punish overly aggressive opponents, conceal other actions, bait people, and look HOT as hell.

        Much better than what a lot of people say, even for PvE. Has the same move set as the mace, so you get that nice hyper armor while two handing. It may have split damage, but if you want to you can equip the fire clutch ring to boost your fire damage a good amount. It also has a “poke” R2 when one-handed (if I remember correctly). Finally, it’s weapon art should not be overlooked, it has great damage and area of effect, and can be really effective out of a repost. Overall, I’d say it’s actually a 8/10 weapon.

          I was messing around with bow tumbling Frozen Weapon onto innate fire damage weapons, and for some reason if you do this to the Follower Torch the weapon art procs Frostbite, same with a few other weapon. the lava puddle on the Demon Scar can also apply Frostbite, so I believe this works on any damaging weapon art.

            even though you're technically supposed to get this after (unless you rolled through the entire area, you naughty cheater) this works wonders for the snowfield dog zone. Let them all howl and start circling around you, press L2, and let them jump into your flames. You'll get hit once or twice occasionally, but end up killing almost every dog. The flames stagger them so the only times you actually get clipped is when they come from the sides.

              does more then double all other weapons kick stamina damage (demons fist very very slightly more then half follower torch, otherwise demon fist is second best) guarenteed to guard break all shields at 40 end until you get 80+ (maybe 75+) without horsehoof. with horsehoof it can guard break shields with 80+ at 40 endu (232 stamina damage at 80 stability exactly)

                looks like a meme weapon, but the hyperarmor on this is retardedly good for its weight. also the 2 handed r2 is really a pleasure to play with. sadly, it is one of the rare weapons that doesnt have a r1 r1 true combo

                  This is honestly a fantastic weapon, both for PvE and PvP. R1/R2's have good hyper armor, pretty good damage and do a good job roll catching. This weapons shines really well, even as your main weapon. It also has one of the best weapon arts in the game that covers almost all options. The hitboxes are huge and last a super long time AND you can roll out of it anytime during the fire breathing, which makes you basically unpunishable. You would not believe how many times people get hit more than once by this. Amazing at both the fires max range and close range. Hitting someone close range pretty much forces them to back off. They can't try to attack you or they'll get hit again. If they try to roll away in almost ANY direction, they get hit again. Probably the only way to escape is trying to dodge behind you, but you can just roll away whenever, so it's a 100% win-win situation. To top it all off, the weapon art has GOOD hyper armor. Only thing wrong with the weapon is that you can't combo two consecutive R1's. If it could do this, it would honestly be one of the best weapons in the game, although it can still be one of the best potentially.

                  Fun little tip: If someones trying to run around the flame, dodge in the opposite direction of them, and the last fire hitbox prior to your roll will spawn in their direction.

                    I love toasting the weird angel controlling larvas in the earthen peak ruins with the WA. So damn satisfying after having to sprint through that D-Day reenactment. Scream you little*****s, scream for me!

                        This weapon really needs a slight tracking buff for pvp at least.

                        The r2 in paticular seems to just not connect at all when it hits some one dead on, I find often the r1 has better range.
