Torchpole is a Spear in Elden Ring. The Torchpole scales primarily with Strength and Dexterity, and is a decent Weapon for inflicting fire-based attacks from far away.

 

Torch fastened to a long pole. Lights up dark areas, but cannot be
raised overhead.

Used by soldiers on watch, its attacks set foes aflame.

 

Where to Find Torchpole in Elden Ring

The Torchpole weapon can be found at the following location:

  • Players can obtain the Torchpole by killing the Stormveil Castle courtyard guards. [Elden Ring Map here]
    • One enemy dropping this weapon can be found close to Stormveil Cliffside Site of Grace, just up the wooden stairs along the wall. Although tempting, it is not recommended that you use projectile weapons/ranged attacks from the Site of Grace to kill this enemy from afar, as upon death the soldier may fall off the edge.

 

Elden Ring Torchpole Notes & Tips

  • Weapon Skill: Charge Forth
  • This weapon cannot be infused with Ashes of War nor buffed with Magic or Consumables.
  • Torchpole can be upgraded by using Smithing Stones.
  • Sell Value:  er runes 13 100
  • Base drop rate is 2% (at 100 Discovery).
  • Pros: really long range among its class. The second longest spear (not including great spears) behind the pike. The range is definitely noticeable, and helps keep you out of attack range much easier than other spears, though obviously not as well as the pike. That range also compliments Charge Forth very well, making it much easier to land (and avoid attacks during) than with shorter weapons. Gives off light, making it great for caves. The fire damage is very low, but proves super useful for any enemy that gets put into a special on-fire stun animation, like dogs and (especially) finger creepers.
  • Cons: No infusing, no buffing. Locked scaling at the lower end of C (both Str and Dex are equal within C), and only scaling on the physical attacks. Paired with unimpressive base damage, and this thing's damage will be far outpaced by other spears that can utilize ashes and buffs. 2nd worst stamina damage in class, for seemingly no reason; most normal-sized spears max at 80, but this only gets up to 72, even though it weighs more than many of the others... quite counter-intuitive. No changing the skill off of Charge Forth. Charge Forth is a good skill, and definitely something people sleep on, but it adds very little to this weapons kit.

      Does anything else have that walking in r2?. It could explain why they left this weaker... Atleast from a PvE perspective you can walk around and safely no hit everything with heavies pretty much.. noticed it when I quickly put on one that dropped in stormveil it's nutty. No other spear I've tested has it

        Rise up Torchpole lovers!
        We must make our voices heard!
        FromSoft let us put ashes on it so we can giants hunt people with on a stick.

          I want the ghost flame torch pole badly by ut alas it's unavailable.... FROM... Could ya not be like this? Just gimme a cool smores on fire stick!

          • Anonymous

            I would like From to add the other version of this. The one used by the commoners who revive the skeletons in the catacombs of the Black Knife. In addition to having the great white flame it also generates freezing.

              The only possible use I could see for this weapon is powerstancing it with a cold spear to proc and reset frostbite.

              • This is the third longest, according to the spears page. I haven't checked myself how it looks visually, but apparently the Bolt of Gransax is longer. I'm going to change it to say that in a bit.

                  Despite the fact that some radahn foot soldiers carry a weapon resembeling (but not identical to) the torchpole, they do NOT drop it. I spent almost an entire in-game day farming one of them just north of Fort Gael, and in that time I amassed 50,000+ runes, 4 foot soldier helms, 9 Scarlet Tabards, an absurd amount (100+) of Smoldering Butterflies, and zero torchpoles.

                  • The entire advantage of normal smithing stone weapons and sinking a ridiculous 97 stones into maxing them is being able to buff and infuse them. I think some goon figured that having a torch and weapon in one made up for this thing sucking but the lantern exists so this literally has no reason to be this bad.

                      I find it very funny that they felt the need to remove the slight faith scaling for fire damage on a weapon that was still worthless with it while leaving many fundamentally broken weapons unchanged

                        I wish this wasnt utter garbage so I could make a Maiden in Black cosplay. At the very least we should be able to change its ash of war and infusion

                          The wasted potential on this hurts me to say the least, it deserves to get ashes of war and elemental scaling, imagine something like blood tax and bloodflame blade on this or black flame tornado, it's so sad how they did this weapon so dirty with the potential it had.

                          • Anonymous

                            This thing deserves more thought put into it. If it's just a flaming stick, you should be able to swing it wide like the partizan, and do strike damage. At least then it'll be a more versatile exploring tool, and make up for not being very impressive as a weapon

                              From the Liftside Chamber grace door you can see a guard in watchtower. You can farm this one without aggroing anything.

                                A very fun-looking weapon that unfortunately seems neglected by the devs.

                                Pros: really long range among its class. I think it might be the second longest spear (not including great spears) behind the pike. The range is definitely noticeable, and helps keep you out of attack range much easier than other spears, though obviously not as well as the pike. That range also compliments Charge Forth very well, making it much easier to land (and avoid attacks during) than with shorter weapons. Gives off light, making it great for caves.

No changing the skill off of Charge Forth. Charge Forth is a good skill, and definitely something people sleep on, but it adds very little to this weapons kit. Its longer range would make a lot of the sweeping polearm skills very fun, but we can only dream.

                                All in all, I really want to like it... but it's as though From doesn't want me too lol. What's most baffling is that the Torchpole has been lackluster since release but for some reason got nerfed in the first major patch; it used to have faith scaling for its fire damage. Still have no idea why that was removed.

                                I doubt that it will ever get the love it deserves, but I really hope so. They've surprised me before with their patches

                                  Is there an alternate version? In one of the dungeons I found some enemies that re-summon skeletons, and they have a torchpole with blue fire

                                    Some Highlights i've had with this weapon as i've used it purely all the way to the capital so far.

                                    It's a light source, has long reach and uses the spear moveset which most npc enemies struggle to avoid and space.
                                    It's a fire weapon which seems to be strong verse beasts and causes unique burn animations on Giant hands and plants that disable them and give them a DoT
                                    The fire animation is effective at tracking invisible enemies
                                    The light attack sometimes hits through walls ,especially when jumping
                                    Charged strong attacks cause you to run forth and lunge, great for hit and run as you prepare someone for a stagger.
                                    Charged strong attacksalmost always instantly stun bats.
                                    Charge Forth will knock over almost all humanoids(Didn't work on a misbegotten beast though).
                                    I've never seen anyone else use this weapon, you feel pretty unique in coop running around with it.
                                    Spears in general are painful for invaders to deal with.

                                    Despite the perks, you do have to put a lot more effort into it to fight enemies and the dps in general is a lot lower than most weapons that would have status effects on them and just scale better. jump attacks on this aren't the best and you'll have to use careful strong attacks and charge forths to make this shine.

                                      Damn, just farmed this for a pyromancy build to find out it has no faith scaling. It's a fire weapon with no faith scaling and can't put a fire ash of war on it... Bruh.

                                      • As someone who likes to keep a torch for dark caves and night-time interiors, the torchpole is very handy to have. After all, it is basically a long spear with a flaming tip. You can have fun literally backstabbing enemies with a large wooden pole that sets them on fire in the process.

                                        Sadly, it cannot use other Ashes of War and apparently had the faith-scaling removed, so you're basically stuck with "Charge Forth" and regular damage with a bit of fire tacked on, but there are definitely worse weapons out there.

                                        Still, there are far worse weapons out there, and it's nice being able to poke
