Torch God's Favor is a consumable item obtained by surviving The Torch God event if at least 95 Torches were fired during the event. Upon use, it permanently grants the player the ability to automatically convert regular Torches and Campfires in the player's hand to the current biome's Torch or Campfire variant, which increases the player's luck in most areas.

Torch God's Favor is a one-time consumable whose effect cannot stack (similar to the Advanced Combat Techniques or the Demon Heart). When first used, the ability is switched on by default and can then be toggled off and on via a biome torch swap icon appearing in the upper-left of the inventory (similarly to the togglable wiring icons of The Grand Design).

Torches placed with biome torch swap toggled on will permanently remain converted to the biome torch they were placed as, even if freed and picked up.

Before and after toggling biome torch swap on in the Jungle.

  • Bone Torches, Demon Torches and Aether Torches will be swapped in when Torches are placed in the Dungeon, The Underworld and The Aether respectively, despite not affecting Torch Luck in those areas.
    • Therefore, it is better to transfer Bone Torches to the Underworld, where they do impart Torch luck. Demon Torches do not affect luck at all.
  • Ice Torches take precedence over Jungle Torches and Mushroom Torches even though the Jungle and Glowing Mushroom biomes both take precedence over the Snow biome for most other purposes like fishing and enemy spawning.
  • Coral Torches will not be swapped in while in the Ocean, despite being a biome-specific Torch.
  • Players who have already used a Torch God's Favor, or have one in their inventory, will not be able to initiate The Torch God event.
    • The inventory's trash slot is not considered part of the inventory for The Torch God event, so having a Torch God's Favor there will not prevent the event from initiating.
  • Consuming the Torch God's Favor unlocks the Bestiary entry of the Torch God.

Torch God • Invoked the wrath of the God of Torches, and survived long enough to earn its blessing.


  • A profit of 10 per Torch bought from the Merchant (at base happiness) can be made by converting regular Torches to Demon Torches in the Underworld, then picking up and selling them. However, a player who has progressed to the point that they are comfortable enough in the Underworld to spend time on this has much more profitable options; see Guide:Making money.
