Should it be mentioned that torches give off light permanently unless removed? - Spinfx 00:09, 17 July 2011 (UTC)


is there any way to assign torches to a particular button?

Ultrabright torch[edit source]

Is it true that ultrabright torch is dimmer when placed? I tested it and it is the same when placed for me.. Screenshot link (cant sort the image order somehow) FunAlways (talk) 06:22, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

That claim might be outdated. It does seem that the light distance remains the same when placed, even under different lighting modes. I suppose whoever put that could've meant that they're brighter in the sense that darker-colored torches emit dimmer light, but they seem to even have the same range as normal torches in colored light modes so it's debatable. I've removed it, but if someone else wants to look into it more feel free to provide some input. Gearzein (talk) 09:03, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Cursed/Ichor Torches[edit source]

can they be placed in honey? is there any brightness difference between these? Guestds (talk) 09:37, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

Yes, they can be placed in water, lava, and honey. They are brightest in water. I'll post a comparison picture when I can get my computer back up and running. – Ferretwings (talk) 18:28, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

Bone Torch[edit source]

The Torch Page says that Bone Torches are "Sold by the Skeleton Merchant for 1 Silver Coin during the second half of every minute (equivalent to one real-world second)," while the Skeleton Merchant Page says that Bone Torches are sold "During the first half of every in game minute (every real life second)." So is it sold during the first or second half of every in game minute? Tntthepiggies (talk) 21:02, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

First half, I’ll correct it —ϟAwesome_Diamondsϟtalk 21:38, 10 March 2018 (UTC)

Missing Torches[edit source]

It seems like the Bone Torch and Pink Torch are missing on the ‘Light range and color of the torches’ image under Types. Does anyone know how the others were done in order to fill in the gaps? Diamondcat6746 (talk) 23:39, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

Good eye. It was made during the 1.2 era, when these didn't exist yet. Use the table at the left for now. I'll ask the wiki Discord for an updated one. - Murrayzero (talk) 12:20, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
