Lit torch detail.png

A Torch is an unobtainable version of the Lit torch. Torches were previously tradeable and could be turned into banknotes. However, they were made untradeable due to an unfixable bug where trading a lit torch in a dark area would not update the lighting for either player.[1] Any player who had a noted lit torch was given this now discontinued item. Originally, the item was identical to the real lit torch, except being stackable.

As this change occurred prior to August 2007, the item has never been obtainable in Old School RuneScape.
