I"ve already acquired 30 minutes worth of torches. Ns have however not gained the understanding of how to actually use "em. I"ve pushed every button, searched all easily accessible options, come no avail.

How to usage a torch?


*

Can girlfriend not just walk as much as a lit brazier and also press A? Or at a bonfire, you have to toggle and then push A? complete disclosure, I"ve only watched other human being play.

i haven"t done it yet myself, yet I think if you use the "Toggle" button at a bonfire you deserve to then light your torch. Ns don"t know just how the timer works. Does it reset after ~ the torch goes out or do you need to find/buy an ext if you usage up friend time limit?

gamingsince81: Yeah, you just go as much as the bonfire and also toggle the so it says "light torch" friend can also light it on ant other sconces you have actually lit. Ns haven"t found any type of to buy, but yes, you require to discover more.

The former is the only means of that ns know how to carry out it. I tried the latter, yet bonfire fire seems to be as well magical to go on a torch.

EDIT: Apparently various other commenters claim you can use the bonfire. I have to go try this!

I"ll recognize this is a tiny confusing due to the fact that the torch doesn"t show up together an actual article in her inventory you can equip and also pull out, like most weapons/shields. The basically just exists as that timer ~ above your equipment screen.

I concern that I"m wasting a most time make the efforts to light braziers favor a crazy person (WHAT do THEY DO, I should KNOW!! p.s. Don"t tell me)

took me about an hour to establish you don"t equip the torch manually. Yet yeah, any kind of bonfire or fire stand need to work.


beard_of_zeus: Yeah, the implementation that the torch seems really strange, in the it"s a physical object that you have to hold in among your hands, yet it doesn"t actually take increase a slot almost everywhere in your inventory. It"s simply this big fat timer in her inventory menu. I assume the torch doesn"t rise your weight at all, due to the fact that there"s no means to fall it?

Maybe the totality torch thing is a result of them gaining a bunch that feedback from players the everybody hated dig of Giants and also how it"s possible to miss the lantern and/or put the lantern into their inventory and forget around it. So now the torch is this large prominent mechanic friend can"t forget around and forcibly constantly have through you, as lengthy as girlfriend can find somewhere to irradiate it.

I tho kinda like Vinny"s original theory wherein he believed you couldn"t use bonfires, and that this one sconce early on in the video game is the ur-sconce that is the source of every future sconces you ever light. It has actually a an extremely "Olympic flame" vibe come it.
