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.

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.

      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.

                    Fire clutch ring,
                    Hunter ring (optional)

                      Basically, the weapon art is one free spell for my pyromancer. A Fire Whip with actual range and damage, and also interruptable in case of whiffs. That said, it's not easy to hit people in Pvp with this, but it's surely better than wasting a slot on that useless Fire Whip

                        low split damage, bad scaling, no range, cool but bad weapon art and slow attacks. only good thing going on for it is the hyper armor it has when 2 handed overall a bad weapon that needs a buff to scaling or base damage

                          Nostalgia :'(
                          Is it just me or this is a huuuge reference to the engorged hollows of the painting of Ariamis? the WA looks identical to their fire attack and the description even mentions "pus within the body"...

                            Just a small tidbit, the weapon art can be used when your FP is empty, but it loses range and does far less damage

                              This weapons is VERY good. Weapon art must be abused as much as possible so success. It has good hitboxes and insane HA.

                                Note: The damage/stability/scaling in the first 'general' is wrong. It displays the +2 values instead of +0. I'm no good at editing, sorry.

                                  I have a question. Does the weapon art scales with Faith + Int like Pyromancies or does it have the same scaling that the weapon's ?
