The Beast-Repellent Torch is an incredibly useful armament that has the ability to keep some of the most annoying enemies in Elden Ring at bay.
Elden Ring often puts players in dark environments, where the lack of visibility can quickly turn deadly, which is why carrying an armament such as the Beast-Repellent Torch is highly recommended. Elden Ring, unlike previous FromSoftware games, introduces a variety of torches, each of them unique in its own way. The Beast-Repellent Torch, for example, is much more than a simple source of light as it also possesses the unique ability to repel beasts when carried. Those struggling against beastly enemies in the game, such as dogs or basilisks, would do well to acquire it, as it is very effective in dealing with them.

The Beast-Repellent Torch is the best strength scaling torch in the game, but its real value comes from its ability to repel beast-type enemies. While players wield this armament, most beasts will recoil from its light and keep their distance from the player without attacking. However, this effect does not work on the strongest beasts in the game, and it is often best used to keep the player from getting overwhelmed by packs of fast attacking annoying enemies in Elden Ring.

The torch’s repellent effect will work on Wolves, Dogs, the Giant Dogs in Caelid, Bears, Rats, Basilisks, and Snails but will have no effect on Runebears, Caelid Crows, Warhawks, Bats, Crabs, Giant Ants, Land Octopuses and beasts with glowing red eyes. It is also important to note that the Beast-Repellent Torch will only work as long as players do not attack the enemy. Like most torches, this armament cannot be infused with Ashes of War, but it can be upgraded with smithing stones.
Where To Buy The Beast-Repellent Torch in Elden Ring
To acquire the Beast Repellent Torch, players will need to find the Isolated Merchant in Caelid and buy it from him for 1200 runes. There are two ways to get to him from the start of the game. The longer route will have players take the main road leading to Elden Ring’s Stormveil Castle and turn east before arriving at the blockade in front of the gate. After that, players just have to follow the main road leading east until they reach a smoldering wall. Hop over it to find the Rotview Balcony Site of Grace, then look to the northeast to spot the Isolated Merchant’s Shack on top of a hill.
Alternatively, players can instead travel to the Dragon-Burnt Ruins that are to the east of the First Step Site of Grace in Limgrave and find the stairs leading down to a basement. Next, players can open a chest to be teleported to the Sellia Crystal Tunnel in Caelid, Elden Ring’s easternmost region. Next, players must exit the cave by following the path leading down and then proceed southwest around the rot lake until they find the Aeonia Swamp Shore Site of Grace. From there, they should travel north until they find the smoldering wall and follow it eastward until they can spot the Isolated Merchant’s Shack at the top of the hill to the north.
