An unlit torch may be used with a tinderbox to get a lit torch. It is useful for dark tunnels and smoking Hunter traps once lit. 39 Hunter is required to smoke traps. Smoking traps increases the chance of catching a creature by 2%.
Unlit torches can sometimes be found inside barrels.
They can also be purchased from these stores:
- Gunslik's Assorted Items
- Obli's General Store in Shilo Village
- Yanille's hunter store
- Jiminua's Jungle Store near Brimhaven
When lit, a torch can be used as a light source in dark dungeons and in some quests such as Shilo Village. Multiple torches (up to 3) can be used at the same time for brighter lighting (this also works with candles).
This can be a dangerous source of light in some places such as the Lumbridge Swamp Caves due to the fact that its open flame can ignite the "swamp gases" within the caves. If the player does not leave the swamp gas area immediately, or does not extinguish the flame, then the swamp gas may explode, damaging the player and putting out all light sources in the player's inventory.
