How to do it Edit
Advice has been given to "watch the shadows when tossing, then walk under the torch as it falls." Nice, but not too specific. And I didn't get the shadows, probably because I had my video settings turned low. So I opened Options:Video and ramped these up to nearly maximum on their sliders:
With these turned high enough you can see the shadows as the torches fall. Zoom out a moderate distance (but not too far or you'll be chasing a single grey pixel) and position your camera directly above yourself, looking down onto the top of your head.
Then I had the bright idea to enable click-to-move. Bad idea; you move too slowly to catch the torch, resulting almost always in droppage and explosion. Man, I wish I had a DoT like that!
However, I've been doing pretty well by turning to face the direction of travel while moving, using the principle that it's easier to move forward than in reverse. That has worked pretty well. Also, the initial direction seems to always be away from the bonfire, so face that way and you'll have a head start. Good luck!--ClemSnide (talk) 00:53, 23 June 2008 (UTC)
- I myself didn't see the shadows either.. but didn't think to turn up the settings... I instead zoomed my camera out tilted down and followed the torches as best as I could... only took a few attempts and I now have it down... though I'm not going to bother catching 10 in a row lol.
