Lit torch detail.png

A lit torch is a torch that is lit by a tinderbox and can only be made by members. It is one of the weaker light sources, which will let players see in dark caves and can be put out to produce the unlit torch. Only the unlit version of torches are tradeable among players, and at the Grand Exchange.

This can be a dangerous source of light in some places such as parts of the Lumbridge Swamp Caves due to the fact that its open flame can ignite the "swamp gases" within. When in a swamp gas area, you receive the warning message "Your torch flares brightly!" If that player does not leave that area or extinguish the flame, then the swamp gas explodes, damaging the player and putting out all light sources in the player's inventory. You would be unable to extinguish it if it is your only light source. Cave goblins in the area will give you a lit torch if you talk to them while not having any light source, which may be dangerous for this reason.

Lit torches can be used to smoke traps in the Hunter skill. Alternatively the Mud bath at the Oo'glog spa may be used, or a scentless potion.

Lit torches are also used in the Construction skill, as a lighting option in Dungeons, Dungeon pits, Oubliettes, and Treasure Rooms in a Player-owned house.
