Release [[Update:{{{release}}}|{{{release}}}]]

Torches are primitive, craftable light sources that illuminate the dark only so much and last for about 2 minutes.

They must be equipped and selected in the hotbar to light the way.

While no weapons can be used when wielding a torch, the torch itself can be swung around like a weapon, albeit with poor damage and awful durability, with even a new torch breaking in a mere 4 hits. However, this does have other benefits besides direct damage, as a torch swung this way can be used to clear away Worms within its attack range as well as to light Gas trails or pools.

A torch will also burn away nearby Black Substance.

a torch will last for aproximately 5:36 minutes, making it posible to use one to survive a night, if it is not used to strike anything.

Trivia Edit

  • The Torch is one of the few items in Darkwood that has several crafting recipes.
  • Torches are decent for building reputation with the trader NPCs, as they are very cheap and easy to produce, and can be sold for a decent profit.
