‘What was that? I thought I saw a twinkle of light in the forest.’
They all looked, and a longish way off, it seemed, they saw a red twinkle in the dark; then another and another sprang out beside it.

–Balin in The Hobbit, Flies and Spiders

Wood-elven torches are non-solid blocks that emit light used by the Wood-elves of Woodland Realm.


A Wood-elven torch will break instantly and drop itself when broken using anything. The tool will not take any damage when breaking the torch.

Wood-elven torches will also be broken if flowing water runs over its location.

Natural generation[]

These kinds of torches can be found in nearly every Wood-Elven structure, including housestowers and on lookout platforms.


Wood-elven torches are crafted by combining one stick, one piece of coal or charcoal and one red Mirk-oak leaf (which means you'll need shears or a pickaxe with the modifier Silken to gather the required materials) on a Wood-elven crafting table.

Wood-elven torches can be placed on the top or the sides of most solid blocks. Being non-solid, Wood-elven torches have no collision box.

Gravity affected blocks like sand and gravel will not fall if the block below them has a Wood-elven torch on it, and will break if they fall onto a Wood-elven torch.


Wood-elven torches give off a light level of 14. Wood-elven torches also melt snow layers and ice within 2 blocks.
