Torches are a type of Weapon in Elden Ring. Torches deal little damage, but can be used to ward off unwanted beasts while dealing some Fire Damage on them.

Torches can't be modified by a number of Ashes of War to change their Skills or Damage Type, except to apply the "No Skill" skill.

Torches do not receive a unique moveset as a result of dual-wielding (AKA "power stancing").

      we need the annoying move the torch-wielding npcs have where they hold it in front of them and it has an active hitbox

      • I wish there was a lightning torch. I think it'd be especially nice if the lightning torch was available in one of the earlier areas, since I always found lightning damage hard to access at the start compared to all the other elements.

        • Anonymous

          Wish St.Trina and Ghostflame torches also functioned as catalysts. A lot more visually pleasing than staves and seals.

            After almost 1k hrs, decided to return to my simplest time in the game, when I had a claymore and a torch. Torches are cool man, using a steelwire in coop and its skill is good to deal some fire dmg and guide hosts to the goodies. 10/10 will torch invaders in the eye again.

              If you use the Ghostflame torch along with the belt lantern it creates a really nice pure white light that lets you really appreciate the design of the darker areas in the game that can be difficult to make out otherwise.

              • Anonymous

                There better be a lightening, Blood and poison torch in the DLC. But above all I'd love a god flame torch that used black light.

                • Anonymous

                  I sometimes wish we could power stance torches. But then I think they'd just give it the axe/hammer moveset so I'm not all that bothered.

                  • Anonymous

                    I think it would be cool to see a torch that's based off the flame of the fell god, considering how it turns the whole damn Erdtree into a fireworks festival. I mean I know it's they're not supposed to be used as weapons but it would be fun to see an outlier.

                    • Anonymous

                      Worth noting that the Torch, Beast-Repellent Torch, and Steel Wire Torch all have flat fire damage that doesn't scale with any stat, while the Sentry's Torch (Holy, Faith), Ghostflame Torch (Magic, Int), and St. Trina's Torch (Fire, Faith) all have elemental damage that actually scales with a stat (at "top end of C scaling" scaling.) Given that Trina's (with its Faith scaling fire damage) also puts targets to sleep, and Ghostflame (with its Int scaling magic damage) also inflicts Cold, they're probably actually good sidearms on a melee Int or Faith build.

                        I tried a torch only run as a challenge. Quickly realized torches are actually good and it was hardly a challenge.

                            Someday... someday these will be classified as Catalysts instead shields so noone will do the torch attack instead of their actual weapons skill.

                            • Anonymous

                              missed opportunity to give these a straight AR buff for damage types, like the sentry's torch boosting holy damage by 10%, etc.

                                  I don't understand people wanting from to make torches good weapons. It's just tool, I already appreciate and find surprising they made so many typse of theme in this game.

                                    Imagine a bliodflame torch. Hopefully in a DLC cause I need such a thing. Or a blackflame torch could work too....

                                      I wish there was more than just wire torch that was viable for combat. Or at least something more to differentiate the torches. I'd love a lantern on the end of a spear that could illuminate farther, or other silly fun torches.

                                        I wish we had the lantern flame throwers, that the smithing stone miners used(pickaxe rock guys). It would be a great addition for strength builds as a utility weapon to finish ppl off.

                                          From please don't leave Torches like this, please do something to make the weapon class viable! Even if you just buff the charge attack to match the time of the fist weapons, or give the roll dodge + r1 attack more range by making it similar to morning star hammer's rolling + r1...

                                          Please just buff torches, I think I'm the only player who uses them in pvp/pve, they're very bad, but beautiful and have a lot of potential...

                                            Would love to see Black flame torch with some unique skill and it would make everything darker rather than brighter

                                              I think the torches cannot be parried, I killed people with and they tried to parry me but they didn't got a single one.

                                                There are more torches than reapers…

                                                On a different note, I would love to be able to apply ashes to torches, especially the Steel Wire. Would be awesome to infuse it with Flame Art and basically make a pure-fire weapon. Also, it be hilarious to put Lion’s Claw on a Torch.

                                                  Hoping for a lightning torch in DLC to complete the torch only run, hell even a bleed torch while they're at it.

                                                    being able to put affinities on torches would be nice for torch only runs, also having more torch ash of wars would be cool.

                                                      is there a list of what ashes of war actually work with torches, the only one I can seem to apply is "No Skill", it's a real shame not even "Parry" is an option considering these are technically in the shield category of weapons
