I know this sounds silly and there is probably something that I am obviously missing, but I have looked on several different websites and none of them tell me how to ignite the torch.
I've gotten several pieces of information on what they do and how the timer works and that you can use them to ignite the pyres about the world to give you extra light, but the one piece of information that I just cannot find is how to turn it on.
I checked the help stuff in the menu, but it won't let me hover over the torch timer or tell me how to do it. My retail copy didn't come with a manual either (I don't know if anyone's did). And if it was explained during the tutorial, I died jumping down off the ledge near the one of the first pyres you come across.
Do I have to visit a bonfire? There is no "torch" item in my inventory to equip nor is there a usable item in my consumables. I've tried every button combination that I can think of as well.
