Summoning

The Torch God is summoned when the player places around 100 of any type of torch anywhere below the surface.

Preparation

Terrain Preparation

  • Open areas are useful as you have a lot of space to move around.
  • Different torches have different flame colors. Crimson Torches are a bad idea to use, as the flames are almost impossible to see. Using Ultrabright Torches will give you an easy time to spot as they have very bright flames.
  • Creating a loop of Minecart Track around the torches can be an effective way to dodge the fireballs easily.
  • Circling the flames using Rope and Platforms is an easy way to avoid being hit.

Gearing Up

Armor

  • An Ultrabright Helmet can be used for greatly increased vision at the cost of a possible higher defense helmet.

Accessories

Mounts

Potions

  • Using Calming Potions will stop the extra enemies from spawning, allowing you to focus more on dodging.
  • Vision-increasing potions like the Night Owl Potion makes the projectiles easier to spot.
  • The Ironskin Potion will help you tank in case that you got hit by a flame.

Tips

  • Enabling autopause will be helpful to dodge the fireballs easily by planning your next move every time you open your inventory.
  • Using Peace Candles will stop the extra enemies from spawning, allowing you to focus more on dodging.

Alternative strategies

  • The projectiles can be easily avoided by placing all the torches in the center of your arena, building a large open space underground and moving in one direction (near the edges) during the event.
  • Good additions to your arena are a rope ladder, as dodging the flames vertically is easy. Non-torch light sources, like lanterns and campfires, will help you to see better.
