A Torch is a furniture item that produces light when placed, held, or dropped, and is crucial at all stages of gameplay as a primary light source. Torches provide light permanently, and are never consumed.

Torches can be placed on the sides or tops of most blocks, and can be placed on background walls. They can also be placed on the sides of trees and Wooden Beams. They cannot be placed on any type of Platform. A placed Torch can be retrieved by right-clicking on it or freeing it with Pickaxes or Drills. When the block a Torch is attached to is broken, it will attach itself to any possible block or wall directly next to it. If the block or wall is broken and the Torch has nowhere to go, it will drop like any other item. Since Torches give off light when dropped as an item, it is possible to throw a Torch down into a vertical cave to check what is down there.

Torches are also mechanisms, and can be toggled on and off while connected to Wire.

[edit] Torch

Standard Torches produce an orange flame, and cannot be placed in liquids. They are crafted with Wood and Gel, but can also be purchased from the Merchant for 50 Copper Coin each.

[edit] Colored Torches

Purple, Yellow, Blue, Green, Red, White and Orange Torches can be made by combining standard Torches with Gems. There are seven available colors, one for each of the seven Gem colors. With the exception of their colors and light levels, these function identically to a standard Torch.

[edit] Ice Torch

Ice Torches are crafted by combining standard torches with Ice Blocks, and give off a pale blue light. The Ice Torch has a slightly different graphic to the rest of the colored torches.

[edit] Demon Torch

Demon Torches are one of the two Torches that cannot be crafted (the other being the Ultrabright Torch); instead they must be taken from the Ruined Houses in the Underworld, where they occur naturally. They function identically to standard, colored and Ice Torches, except that they cycle smoothly between red, purple, and blue flame colors.

[edit] Cursed and Ichor Torches

These Torches are available during hardmode, and give off a bright green and yellow light. They are also unique in that they can be placed in liquids and function normally there. They are crafted by combining standard Torches with Cursed Flames or Ichor, meaning they can only be obtained on worlds with hardmode Corruption or Crimson.

[edit] Pc only.pngUltrabright Torch

Ultrabright Torches cannot be crafted but sometimes they are sold by Traveling Merchant. They shine brighter than normal torches only when held, and return to the brightness of a standard or White Torch when placed.

[edit] Types list

There are currently 13 different Torch types.

[edit] Notes

  • With the exception of the Cursed Torch and Ichor Torch, Torches do not function under Water. A Torch thrown into Water will not emit light once it submerges, and if a player enters Water with a Torch selected in the Hotbar, the Torch will not be visible and will emit no light. Placed Torches are freed when Water touches them, and drop as items.
  • Holding the Auto-Select key (default: Left Shift) with the cursor over empty space will automatically prepare the torches in your inventory, allowing for quick placement or easy access to light.
  • White Torches appear to produce the most light of any light source in the game.
  • Torches provide more light when placed than they do when held or dropped, with the exception of the Ultrabright.
  • Torches are the only item where you can throw (via the T key) just one of the item. For all other items the entire stack gets thrown.
  • If you use T to throw a torch it will only go a few tiles forwards before falling straight down. If you want a light source that can be tossed further, use Glowsticks or Flares (though note that glowsticks are thrown by selecting them and then left-clicking, not by pressing T).
Anomaly.png Anomaly: All torches display on the minimap and full map as if they were a normal torch, regardless of their actual color.
Bug.png Bug : As soon as you have glowsticks in your inventory, shift/autoselect will choose them over Cursed/Ichor Torches when pointing underwater
Bug.png Bug : If the server command to settle liquids is used all cursed torches in water will act like they are normal torches under water and break off of the surface they're attached to.
Bug.png Bug : In iOS you can break a torch when it is out of your breaking/placing range
Bug.png Bug : The Ultrabright Torch produces light underwater, but cannot be placed in water and is not shown in hand underwater. Water will break the torch loose like normal torches.
Bug.png Bug : When trying to place a torch on a half-block or slope that is underwater, even if the torch is not a Cursed/Ichor Torch, the block will change into a full block, regardless of whether the torch was able to be placed.
