Sentry's Torch is a Torch in Elden Ring. The Sentry's Torch scales primarily with Strength, Dexterity, and Faith and is a good tool for illuminating dark areas. It should be used in a player’s offhand, as it doesn’t fair well as a weapon.

 

Torch Given to protectors of the Erdtree. Its flames are bestowed with a special incantation which allows the bearer to see assassins cloaked in veils. Furnished on behalf of the Erdtree and the Grace-Given Lord such that a Night of Black Knives will never come again.

Elden Ring Sentry's Torch Notes & Tips

  • Weapon Skill: Torch Attack
  • This weapon cannot be infused with Ashes of War
  • Sentry's Torch can be upgraded by using Somber Smithing Stones
  • When equipped, allows the player to see enemies that are normally invisible, allowing the player to lock on, and fight them normally. You do NOT need to meet the stat requirements to do this.
    • You can have it in your off-hand and activate two-handed weapon mode for the weapon in your right hand. This will place the torch onto your character's back (torch will be visibly hanging onto your character's back) and its "reveal hidden" ability will still work. 
    • You can reveal players who used Concealing Veil talisman.
    • This does NOT reveal invisible floors, invisible bridges, or illusory walls, except in the singular instance of the illusory walls in the Sage's Cave. Why the Torch has this effect in this dungeon and nowhere else is unknown.
    • This does NOT reveal invisible Teardrop Scarabs.
    • You do NOT need to raise the torch (default is hold left bumper on a controller) for the "reveal hidden" ability to work.
  • Sell Value:  er runes 13 200
  • This is especially useful against the assassins in Ordina’s Evergaol, who are normally invisible and are thus harder to deal with.
  • PATCH 1.05: Fixed a bug that caused performance to slow down when the "Sentry's Torch" weapon was equipped under certain circumstances.

      Using this did in fact make it easier to transverse the invisible bridge to the heretics rise in mountaintops of the giants. Specifically the curved ramp part.

        So I’m not saying dump your early sombers on this. But hey, once you have a few bearings you’re good. I also like the holy damage considering the best faith weapons tend to have fire (cough blasphemous blade). It’s a “cute”utility side arm. I’ve always wanted to that cheap poke move the torch hallows did in Dark Souls.

        • I didn't purchase this, bought the merchants cookbook then killed the merchant to get his bearing, offered the bearing to the hags in round table hold but it's not there for sale?
          I thought everything the merchant had would be there for sale! Crap!
          Any other way to get the torch on same playthrough?

            Why would this not allow for the 'no skill' AoW to be put on it? I can't see any practical reason other than a penalty price that players have to pay for the torch's 'reveal hidden' passive ability.

              Did a tree sentinal cosplay, had my cannon sheild, dual halberds and this torch for fun, and it was actually kinda helpful, I had to fight in a dark area and it proved it use

                Hey this might be too much and would prob have to edit a lot of entries but you think some where down the line you could have links or references to items that serve similar purpose(s) somewhere on each page. For example I’d love to know what other items/spells serve a similar function and it would be convenient if it were at the end.

                  I'm so disappointed...

                  Full Faith build: 12 STR | 10 Dex | 50-60 Faith
                  I can only use a handful of 1h weapons.
                  Long sword, Morning Star, Nobles Estoc, Short Spear - the rest is up to Incantations

                  I'm so disappointed... why does a torch require 15 STR.... to hold a stick

                    the torch is ruined for ordinas evergaol now. It now only works if its actually in your hand and no longer works if its on your back remving your ability to use your weapons ashes of war on them

                      Unironically a good weapon for str/fth. Holds its own in pvp, but it should have had mace poise damage since it’s so heavy and plays like a mace. Has an r2 thrust which roll catches well. Has the str8 sword guard counter, which is really good and so naturally pairs with erdtree great shield.

                        The one torch you would actually want to put No Skill on since this is likely the only torch you'll ever hold in the game, and you can't do it. Come the hell on, FROM.

                            Seems to emit the anti-invisibility effect only in places where invisibility is present. However, after a bit of testing, I think what's going on is that it's checking EVERY enemy for invisibility.

                            When I took the torch out in Sage's Cave, I got some hefty lag spikes. I went through and killed everything except the Black Knife, and upon reequipping the torch, there were no further frame drops.

                            I also noticed the framedrops mostly stop once you enter the boos fight. Maybe it's putting most of the cave's enemies in Omission mode.

                            Same case in Ordina, but I couldn' fix the lag by killing things. Interesting, the lag isn't present when you're on the roofs- only when you're in the black knife roaming grounds, likely for the same reasons as before. Given that the lag doesn' stop, I'm assuming it's checking all the phantom animals, not only in the Evergaol, but in the real town, too.

                              The reason it work's in the Sage's Cave is because the Black Knife Assassin at the end of the cave is the one referenced in the lore of the torch. It is used specifically to find the killer that used the knife to stab Radagan.

                                Really handy against hit and run concealed veil invaders. It's always funny watching them crouch away only to eat an explosive bolt to the back of the head

                                  using it at ordina causes constant frame dips in like a wave pattern, dips hard, then catches up, dips again, catches up again. don’t know what causes it, could be the ghost animals? not sure

                                    I unironically use this in PvP and it is surprisingly not that bad. The main highlight is the running attack which can rollcatch, and can stagger most medium builds. It does decent damage on a faith build and does holy damage, which I personally love.

                                        as soon as I bring out this torch the framerate lags, and then speeds up to catch up to itself, and then lags, and then speeds up, and etc

                                          Why does this page say you don't need to hold the torch for it to work? You most certainly do need to hold it.

                                            A missed opportunity by from soft. This should have been a hammer weapon with a weapon art so that the pious can burn the heretics and purge the unclean. But I might still use this as an off hand for larp reasons.

                                                    This torch cannot be infused with any ash, including No Skill. As far as I can tell, Beast-Repellant and Ghostflame are the only torches that can be infused with No Skill.

WHY DOES THE ITEM DESCRIPTION NOT MENTION THAT WHATSOEVER? The item descriptions in this game are evil and unhelpful most of the time. We have to GUESS what items do? Can't they just make some proper item descriptions like every other game developer is able to do? It's enough that the game itself is extremely hard, but they make EVERYTHING hardcore. No quest screen, no visible names of npc characters (good luck remembering who is who) and almost no way of knowing what items and skills actually do. So complex.... Not for ordinary gamers.

                                                                                                • Location is incorrect on the wiki map. The hermit merchant who sells it / the site of grace is located here: https://i.imgur.com/GleYlO1.png
